More than 83% of British builders work more than 41 hours per week, new research by Tarmac Cement has found.
In addition, 84% of the builders surveyed said they work at least one weekend per month, with a whopping 27% working every single weekend.
And it seems the pressures of the job are getting in the way of family occasions as well. 76% of those surveyed had missed an event due to work – with 23% missing a birthday or anniversary and 27% missing a holiday.
To give these overworked and time-poor builders a break, and to give merchants a sales boost, Tarmac Cement is offering a chance to win time off by offering cash prizes each week of £500 with bags of Blue Circle Postcrete, the UK’s number one ready-to-use post fixing cement.
Customers just need to text their receipts to 80808 to enter, with one winner drawn every week from June to the end of August.
And for those rare evenings off, every bag of Blue Circle Postcrete also offers the chance to win cinema tickets every day – with 500 up for grabs.
Builders merchants know only too well how hard their customers work, and these offers will help increase sales of Blue Circle Postcrete – a product that’s designed to save builders time. Timed tests have shown that experienced fencers can set two posts and hang a panel in less than 10 minutes.
