Edinburgh builders and joiners

Brexit and the challenges facing UK builders

Builders in the UK have seen a great deal of Brexit related challenges in the last 3 years. With so many uncertainties still linked to the UK leaving the EU, it is increasingly challenging for people or businesses to make any firm plans.

Costs are increasing and it has become more and more difficult to recruit highly skilled staff, with many workers from the EU having now left the UK to find security elsewhere. The Federation of Master Builders said its members were already struggling to absorb higher costs “in an industry notorious for tight margins”.

In spite of all this, Veritas Limited have been doing well. Having a reputation for high quality building, joinery and house renovation work has helped us counteract these negative factors.
