Reasons for Using an SBF Builder

The Scottish Building Federation has been in existence since 1895, and is the leading employers’ federation for the construction industry in Scotland. Our membership comprises hundreds of building companies located throughout Scotland, from Orkney to the Borders.

SBF membership is a seal of approval from one of the industry’s most respected trade bodies.

Prior to joining, potential members must provide evidence to prove they have a minimum of 24 months trading, have public and employers' liability insurance & pass credit and director checks, they will also pass an independent check through Trading Standards.

The SBF badge gives customers the confidence that they are using a contractor who is a responsible employer and adheres to the highest standards of customer service, health & safety and workmanship, with members having to fulfil strict criteria before joining and committing to abide by the SBF Code of Conduct.

Should something go wrong, SBF have a Dispute Resolution and Conciliation Service which may able to help you to resolve the matter before it escalates into a potentially expensive dispute.
