Homes On Show - Save My Bathroom

Behind every job there is a story. This one starts with a homeowner, and a vision to renovate her bathroom from an outdated 1970’s relic to a modern, clean, and functional bathroom. The Dilemma The story starts with Joanne and her first tradie, a referral from a friend. The tradie seemed great. The homeowner and the tradie agreed that Joanne would buy everything that was needed for the bathroom, and the tradie gave her a cost to install and renovate to her plan. Fast forward three months and the tradie was nowhere to be seen and uncontactable. With the goods for her bathroom waiting in Mitre 10 and a loan taken out for the project, Joanne was desperate to get the job underway. The Solution “I spoke to someone at work, saying I didn’t know what to do. I needed to have my bathroom renovated, and my colleague said, have you put it on Builderscrack? Then they showed me how Builderscrack works, how to log on and use the site. I put the advert on the next day, and within two

Spa bath repair

Posted 3 months ago

I have an older 'Stylus' corner spa pool (circa +15 years) which is leaking when turned on. It hasn't been used for a long time and I believe a seal has dried out over time because of lack of use and has resulted in this problem. There is an access panel to get to the motor/pipework area, it is a bit small but I have no problem with enlarging this if necessary as long as a suitable replacement panel/cover can be fitted. I'm looking for a quote to remedy
