Cowboys ? Ok bad trades but what about the good ones Dom / mel ? Mel I've met very polite on site , but customers don't pay change plans etc etc , and we look bad :( about time someone should show good building companies ? Teddy ten cups :)9:21pm Thu 24 Jan
Who pays It's pretty obvious that companies are not supplying furniture etc for free,who is really paying for this Dix9:14pm Thu 9 Aug

who appointed these people as judge and jury? Dom says on the programme: I don't want to speak to the builder just yet: they go on the job, decide the builder is totally guilty before they even hear his side of the story, how do we know what the job was really like when the builder left it? speaks fair fairy12:44am Wed 11 Jan
Sexists OK, Melinda wants materials, tradesmen, furniture etc, etc, to do all this great work they say they do for hard up and people who have been let down and ripped off. But I question Melinda going into merchants, furnishers and asking if they would supply what is needed for free. HA! HA! what a joke, I can just imagine what would happen if I, or my wife would be told to do if we asked for free supplies. What a load of crap, to put it bluntly. But I wonder what the answer would be if someone with a camera with a Channel 5 logo on it went into the and asked for the same treatment? Steve the plumber6:53pm Tue 10 Jan
suicide DON Don and his gang might be good at picking fault with cowboy builers, but what sort of an IDIOT does filming and interviewing on a TESCO petrol pump? What a dork Doozer11:27pm Mon 9 Jan

Surely it is not scripted? Of course it is scripted.
Every week is the same. A sad horror story of a ruined job..cue Dom & Mel to inspect the damage.
Mel then shows jon the builder and he says it is worse than he thought.dom goes and does some research on his laptop.
mel then drops a bombshell of yet more work for jon. jon complains saying it will never happen.
dom interviews other customers let down bu the cowboy builder.
mel goes off and scrounges materials from local firms.
dom finds the cowboy builder and confronts him.nothing happens.then it is back to mel for the big reveal.

Good but always the same! Don't get me wrong, this is a great show, I enjoy watching it, but they ALWAYS run out of a budget and they ALWAYS end up getting all the furniture for free which makes me think that the show is scripted. Luke 8:38pm Thu 18 Aug
great I am happy about Melinda joining the team, and as usual it is very eye opening!! thanks channel 5. coco10:13pm Thu 21 Jul
cheap prices bad jobs the programme never shows that most of these people only want to pay the cheapest price possible. so they get the lowest quote & then moan when it all goes wrong. you should always get lots of quotes. you get what you pay for!! good builder11:38am Sun 17 Jul
It's not just the builders. What about the customers who refuse to pay? They put many small builders out of business. Tommy5:13pm Thu 14 Jul
