Expert Trades has launched Verified, a new trade directory for tradespeople and homeowners.

The service is free for both the trades professional and the homeowner, with no subscription or lead fees.

The company says the platform currently has a community of over 20,000 tradespeople, with Verified being launched in response to feedback from the community.

John Smith of Prenton Plumbing Service said: "Finally, we have a directory that is not driven by corporate profit but instead providing honest reviews from end-users and fellow traders. Its success will be driven by the tradesmen: the quality of the service they provide and the reviews of their customers."
