With the onset of the cooler weather, we’ve decided that it’s the right time to get stuck into some small but significant renovations, namely the closing in of an unused front veranda and the total refurb of our dated (read “70′s”) bathroom. Can anyone recommend any suitable tradies to do either of these jobs?
We really didn’t want to resort to cold calling names from the Chronicle or White/Yellow Pages as we’ve done that in the past and not been happy with the results. I’m talking about quote stage only as we can normally weed out the useless ones when they won’t even listen to what you have to say right from the start (we normally then let them go to the trouble of producing a quote because if they’re going to waste our time then they can waste some of their own too).
So, if you’ve recently had a bathroom renovated or enclosed a previously wasted veranda space, please let us know who you used and if you were happy with the work. Feel free to let us know anyone that you wouldn’t recommend either (perhaps in a diplomatic way) so we can avoid the lemons.
