The Federation of Master Builders has been improving standards and helping to build better for over 75 years.

The FMB’s strict membership criteria and dispute resolution service gives consumers confidence and protection.

Master Builders must have a minimum of 12 months’ trading history, pass an independent inspection, have public and employers’ liability insurance & pass credit and director checks.

New Master Builders must pass an independent inspection before joining. Member inspections are carried out by an inspector from the British Board of Agrément, an independent organisation accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Services.

Building work guarantees which are FMB Insurance warranties that provide protection to the client if their registered builder has ceased trade or otherwise refused to return to the property to rectify proven latent defects in insured work.

West & Hill Renovations is a member of the Federation of Master Builders which allows us to display the logo. Be sure to look for this when finding the right builder for your project.

The FMB’s vetting procedure and independent inspections provide credible proof that the building company you are using is amongst Britain’s best builders.

It is likely that you will be spending weeks, or even months, with a building team in your home. It is important that you feel comfortable and secure knowing you have a professional who has the ability and reliability to carry out work to a certain standard.
