Garage Door Colour Update Challenge Solved By Our Tradies

A simple colour update for her garage doors was all that one homeowner wanted. But it proved a little easier said than done until a “can do” tradie was found... The Job Paulette wanted to update the colour of her metal garage doors from what she called a “bland new denim blue” to a more striking ebony black. The Challenge Paulette contacted the garage door company to find out if, and how, the colour could be changed. They came back with two options; replacing the doors entirely at great expense; or powder coating at a cost not much less than new doors, and required them being taken away for two to three weeks. The Solution Not satisfied with these options, Paulette turned to builderscrack.co.nz to see if there were any other options. She already trusted the platform, having used it in the past to find some great tradies. For Paulette, the “ease of use is the best thing”, going on to say that “once you’ve used it the first time, it’s easy to go back and use again”

Women in Trade - S & B Painters and Decorators, Cambridge

We speak with some of our Builderscrack tradeswomen to find out their stories of working in the trades. First up is Sam Cotton, owner of S & B Painters and Decorators, based in Cambridge... Sam learnt her skills early in life, "my father was a painter and taught me most of the skills I have - working with tools, painting and building". She credits her forward-thinking parents for giving her the unwavering belief she can do anything. While studying at university for her Physical Education degree, Sam took on building and painting jobs to support herself. She continued her trade work in between her sporting work over the following years. Eventually starting up and running her own company, aptly named "Jill of All Trades". She ran this up until she became pregnant with her son. After some time off to be a mum, Sam got back to it, starting up a new business - this time focused solely on painting and decorating. Most recently, she moved to Cambridge for her son to purs

Pauline

I have a villa that needs the exterior painted excluding the roof. The hall way is 18 m long to give you an idea of size. It is one level and all rotting weatherboards and window frames have been renewed. The house doesn't have a lot of corners but it is long. I would say there would be a lot of prep as it doesn't look like it's had a coat of paint in the last 100 yrs (just joking) Anyway I just want it painted one main colour and white trim.
