What is the difference between a tradesman and a builder?
A tradesman is trained at a college training centre or on the job in a particular trade and should have attained a certificate of competence or be capable of proving that they have been trained to the required level before they can call them a tradesman.
A builder can be anybody who wishes to call themselves a builder as there are No formal qualifications or certification required.
this is not to say that all builders are not to be trusted, this just means that should you have a problem with plumbing why would you call a builder when you can call a plumber,
