Help and Advice
PortugalTradesmen was developed by a group of expats who on retiring to the Algarve found that their various household improvement projects were often taking longer, and costing more than expected. While on other occasions, the quality of work undertaken was excellent, the experience with the builder first rate, and the value comparable to anywhere in the world.
So they started sharing contact details amongst themselves of the better tradespeople in the region. Who was dependable? Who provided excellence? Who was fair value? AlgarveTradesmen was launched, followed by LisbonTradesmen and finally PortoTradesmen. PortugalTradesmen is the culmination of those experiences.
Now PortugalTradesmen.com serves thousands of customers from a stable of dozens of skilled tradespeople who operate at any trade and most price points.
This is not a comparison website. The professionals we recommend don’t promise to be the cheapest. They do promise to do the job booked in a timely manner, to a quality, and price contracted.
