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 This one starts with a homeowner, and a vision to renovate her bathroom from an outdated 1970’s relic to a modern, clean, and functional bathroom.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

Expert Tiling Provides The Finishing Touch to a Kitchen Renovation

Hiring an expert tiler gave the final polishing touch to one of our homeowner's stunning kitchen renovations...... Only a few months ago Natalie's kitchen was a dark space, coated in the once popular dark blue of the 90's. It not only made the already small kitchen appear tiny, but it created a dark feeling throughout the wider open plan living area. Fast forward to today, and the transformation is something out of a magazine. Not limited to the kitchen itself, but also the lightness it's brought to the rest of her living space. The Vision Natalie started with a firm style in mind, along with some key "must have" elements. “I had a vision of what I wanted, I wanted it bright, fresh, clean, compared with the dark blue.... every time I came into the space there was a gloomy feel to the room.” A essential element was to incorporate a crisp, white subway tile splash-back. The Execution After sorting her kitchen supplier, she turned her attention to finding a tiler.

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
