Question How to find builders

Can anyone tell me the best way to find builders (british or Spanish) I have tried on some expat sites but they are all on the coast. Is it by word of mouth or through estate agent etc We only need a little but of stuff doing like ensuites electrics etc

Ask your neighbours if they used any and then have a look at their work, but more important dont always go for the lowest quote

ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh .. just walk into ANY english bar with more than 3 customers in it and i garentee that you´ll find at least 75% of them are builders!!!!! ...one will be the barmaid

on a more serious note.. i would recomend anyone you know refering a builder to you.

Unfortunately where we are moving there are no English bars although we did visit one in a neighbouring village while on hols recently but it seems that rrecommendationis the best way to avoid cowboys.
