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

Expert Spray Painter Needed - Small Touch Up Job

Posted 3 months ago

Expert spray painter needed to touch up our scratched garage door. The paint we have been recommended to use by the garage door supplier is a Dulux Powder Coat Repair Kit ...... /dulux-use-care-20142.pdf. Garage door is double size (so about 5m) and there are three scratched panels (about 10cm high each). I've not used this product before but it may be necessary to spray paint whole length of panel rather than scratched part so touch up is not badly noticeable.

Garage Door Touch Ups/Repainting

We have a couple of scratches in a small section of a newish powdercoated double garage door. Not sure what the best/most cost effect way to fix is but need these repainted/recoated somehow to prevent rusting. The scratches cover about three lengths of the door (each is about 10 cm x 5 meters) - I imagine the whole length will need painting so any change in finish is not that noticeable (but we don't want the whole door painted as the rest is in perfect condition). Ideally we would like a rough...
