Where to turn to for prop­erty main­te­nance and ren­o­va­tions

Auckland City Harbour News - - Lifestyles -

When look­ing for a trades­man to work on your prop­erty, ser­vice, re­li­a­bil­ity and a fair price are of the ut­most im­por­tance. Only by sup­ply­ing the above will com­pa­nies last the dis­tance in to­day’s mar­ket.

For nearly seven years now, TradeSkills has pro­vided lo­cal home­own­ers and oth­ers re­spon­si­ble for prop­erty man­age­ment with a com­pe­tent and re­li­able source of trust­wor­thy trades peo­ple.

TradeSkills is very se­lec­tive in its choice of con­trac­tors, stay­ing with only one or two proven lo­cal trades peo­ple from any par­tic­u­lar trade. This means that when you call for a trades­man you can be con­fi­dent that the trades­man who re­sponds to your re­quire­ments will have al­ready es­tab­lished a good track record within the prop­erty im­prove­ment in­dus­try.

The TradeSkills group has a very com­pre­hen­sive range of skills, in­clud­ing builders, car­pen­ters, painters, dec­o­ra­tors, tilers, stop­pers, plaster­ers, elec­tri­cians, plumbers, pa­per­hang­ers, brick lay­ers, gar­den­ers, and handy­men among oth­ers.

For you, they will un­der­take such jobs as paint­ing your house inside or out, build­ing a new deck, fence, or re­tain­ing wall in tim­ber or con­crete block. Not only can they ex­pertly ren­o­vate com­plete vil­las but will do an in­di­vid­ual bath­room or kitchen, or de­velop a base­ment into a liv­ing space.

Mak­ing homes more ac­ces­si­ble with walk in show­ers, and ramps that al­low peo­ple to stay in their homes longer has be­come a ma­jor part of their work­load.

But de­spite their abil­ity to tackle all the big projects, they won’t let you down on the lit­tle jobs, and will will­ingly help with such things as clear­ing your gut­ters or tidy­ing your gar­den.

One par­tic­u­lar spe­cialty of TradeSkills is the in­stal­la­tion of Show­er­domes.Thisamaz­ingly sim­ple yet stun­ningly ef­fec­tive prod­uct pre­vents shower steam form­ing and is well worth look­ing into. The re­sult­ing cleaner, dryer bath­room has lit­tle or no damp­ness, no misted mir­ror, and no con­den­sa­tion to cause mould and mildew. Many Show­er­dome cus­tomers this win­ter are peo­ple who in­stalled one last year, and now are in­stalling them in the sec­ond bath­room, en suite or rental.

“Cus­tomers call­ing back doesn’t ap­ply just to Show­er­domes though,” says TradeSkills man­ager Ger­ald Man­nion. “Nu­mer­ous house­hold­ers through­out Auck­land now see us as their one-stop-shop for all re­pair and ren­o­va­tion work. They know Trade- Skills con­trac­tors can be trusted to do a good job at a fair price.”

For any work you need done around the house, you should try them. Call Ger­ald or Terry on 0800 87 54 55, And be­fore you start on any ren­o­va­tion or main­te­nance project it will pay to check out www. tradeskills.net.nz.

Wide range: Build­ing ac­cess ramps for hos­pi­tals, is just one of the ser­vices of­fered by TradeSkill’s team of trusted trades­men which in­cludes builder Bruce Wy­ness.
