Even when Britons do find a tradesman, the average window for arrival is a massive 6.5 hours - almost an entire working day. But one in 10 (11%) report that their tradesman could only specify a 24-hour period - with one in five (21%) longer than a day and 6% a week or more.To make matters worse, a third of Britons (36%) claim that the last time a tradesman arrived they were late - one in 10 (9%) by more than an hour - and one in 100 did not show at all.
