Buildings Insurance: Quote For Making Good
I have a holiday home in Merlimont, North coast, smack bang in between Le Touquet and Berck.
My problem is, I have noticed a bubbling of paint on my partition wall with the neighbours.
Once I'd bought it to their attention there was a lot of apologies and explanations of how it happened etc and that it was approximately 7 to 8 months prior.
So I've made a decision NOT to fix the wall myself in case the problem reappears again in the future.
My building insurers (through my French Bank - Credit Agricole - CA) want two (max three) quotes to make the wall good.
Trouble is, I don't know where to pick up the equivalent of 'Trust a Builder' in northern France!
Yes, I did say to CA at the time I reported the claim
'Look, wouldn't it be better if YOU suggest to ME three builders that YOU trust to come round and give YOU a quote?'
'Nope, rather you do it and send it in with the reference number we gave you.'
So here I am checking the internet for trusted builders in the north of France and not doing well at all.
