Not sure of what to write? We’ve listed some examples below. Remember also that you can upload photos and describe them in the text box. Write as much information as possible so tradespeople know what to expect. But a good tradesman will always ask for more information if it’s needed (and may ring you to discuss).
|Kitchen renovation||My kitchen is about 12 square metres. I want all new kitchen joinery and a bench top (and the old joinery removed). I want the walls painted and the floors tiled. The floor-area to tile is about 9 square metres. I have an oven already but I want a rangehood installed above it. I’ll need an electrician to install new lighting and plugs. I want to put in a new sink and dishwasher, so there will be some plumbing too.|
|Gardening work needed||My garden has overtaken me! This is probably only a few hours work but I need someone to clear a bunch of weeds and take them away.|
|Hardwood deck||I would like a 18m2 hardwood deck to be built with seating all around. Once finished the deck level will be about 600mm off the ground – this is just a bit lower than the level of the french doors leading from my lounge-room.|
|Replace Roof||My old concrete tiled roof is starting to wear and apparently they can leak if they are not sealed occasionally. I’m thinking of changing to a corrugated roof instead? The pitch of the roof is 45 degrees, and there are 2 chimneys and 3 vent pipes. The floor area of my house is 220m2.|
|New House||I have bought a piece of land and want to build a double-story 200sqm brick house with 4 bedrooms + study. Exact specs open for discussion.|
