Hello and Welcome to JustAnswer, My name is Andrea and my goal is to provide you with Excellent Service


if a builder, who is part of the European Union advertises on his website, or anywhere else for that matter, that he guarantees his work, he is obligated to stand behind his work and his advertisement. If he does not, it is considered unfair and deceptive practices by a merchant and it violates the following Directives of the European Economic Community in that it constitutes unfair "business to consumer commercial practices. The Consumer Marketing Law is not the first attempt at protection for the consumer. You can click on the link to read some of the history behind consumer protection
