Dogstruction Calls for Repairs to Walls, Skirting and Doors

Don’t be fooled by those cute puppy dog eyes; homeowner Maddie says that ‘butter wouldn’t melt’ when it comes to Indie, her beloved golden retriever x border collie pup. If you’re familiar with that puppy phase — teething, pre-teen cheek and curiosity — you’ll know the damage they can do when exploring their world (aka your home). A Gnawing Time for Indie At around 5 months old, Indie started chewing the walls and skirting boards as a way of coping with what Maddie described as separation anxiety. “She’s very bright, active and needs to be kept busy, so before lockdown when we were out and about, we would give her the run of the house,” Maddie says. “She had a good go at the front and back entrance ways, then in the two bedrooms. “We found the holes pretty much immediately — she was always very sheepish when we saw them — and she would be slinking around with her head down and tail between her legs.” Repairing The Damage Throughout lockdown, Maddie and her wife w

Small Bathroom Renovation Turns Major When The Unexpected Happens

ulian and Lexie had one month, $5k and a straightforward plan to renovate their small bathroom. Let’s just say, if you like a good ‘down to the wire’ reno story, you’ll love this couple’s drama-filled journey from settlement to move in day. We’re talking budget blow-outs, schedule delays, on-the-spot decisions and eight scope changes. Yeah — total ‘Block’ vibes, right? Julian jokes that he had a couple of grey hairs come flying through at a rapid rate. “It was a significant, unforeseen scenario,” Julian says, alluding to the cause of the delays. This eventful Project Story will leave you with practical insights for your own bathroom renovation.

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

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” and

Sleek Splashback Completes Kitchen and Laundry Reno

After moving in, they realised time wasn’t so much of the essence. It was about enjoying the experience, and they’ve been chipping away at their renos for the past four years. Enter the most recent job: a sleek white tile splashback. The renovated kitchen was missing one thing: a splashback With 12 jobs done and dusted on Builderscrack, Daniel was confident he could find a professional to help him finish off the kitchen and laundry. “We did the kitchen a couple of years ago, and the plan was always to put a splashback in there,” Daniel says. “It was more of a finishing touch than a necessity at that time. “But when we renovated the laundry at the start of this year, we thought now’s the time to do them both.” As with most renos, the paradox of choice can make it hard to decide on the perfect finish. “So we went to a few tile places and actually took some free samples home to see what they’d look like. “My partner was unsure about tile choice afte

A 3yo’s Take on Having Plasterers in the Home

t’s not every day you get to show off your crayons — at least that’s how three-year-old Quinn felt shortly after meeting the tradespeople plastering her living room. Quinn’s mother, Kate, tells me the crayons were just the start, and that Wayne and Ronan from Claddagh Plastering coped incredibly well with her daughter’s constant line of questioning while working. “She would walk up beside them and say ‘look at my carrots’, ‘I’ve got cucumber’, and ask them ‘do you want to be my friend?’,” Kate laughs. “Wayne was really good with her, he’d take time to say ‘oh wow, yes, wow look at that’ — I think he’s got young ones at home, so he was used to it. “She’d stand there and watch them work, mesmerised by the plaster being put on, it was very cute.” As Kate and I relish Quinn’s adorable toddler bravado, Kate lets me in on how they got to this point of renovating their home, and let’s just say, anyone with EQC experience will be able to relate. “We Could Start to Se
