    I've got a question, where do you get the fancy edges that goaround windows. Looking for some straight ones to finish off a feature wall in the garden.

    before i consider any person to work on my house, i ask for the builders licence number so i can check this online ocba.com.au. i ask for the amount of liability insurance that person has, to ensure any mis-haps are taken care of. so maybe if you could supply this public information to people on here?, re-assurance of knowing you have a qualified, experienced, licenced and insured tradesman at your home.

     

    and where possible i check out any references, recommendations etc.. i know it is only plastering and decorating but i have seen some shocking work.

    What do you mean by you know its ONLY plastering and decorating?? They are skilled trades that can only be done one way AND THATS THE CORRECT WAY!! and yes obviously takes skill, experience and qualification peaple who dont have Skill, experiance and qualification do shocking jobs becuase they said its ONLY Plastering and Decorating.. This is why im offering PROFESIONAL ADVISE!!!!!!!

    they sure are trade skills that need to be done right, i have seen cutting in that is shocking, paint flaking off the walls, one coat on walls etc etc.. but never in my home because i use a licensed, insured, qualified tradesperson in that field, so my advice as specified above is for people taking advice or quotes for work to be completed on there homes is to seek ocba.com.au for the trade license that allows them to perform that work.

    i have to smile when i watch current affairs and programs like that, and wonder why did you use someone that knocked on your door, and why didnt alarm bells ring when they wanted money up front.. it is like anything in life check it out and do your research..

    I can't understand how you became a time served qualified plasterer and decorator are they not two different trades. Is it not usually a painter and decorator and it used to be slater and plasterer many many years ago but two different trades now.Given your age it would been hard to complete two apprenticeships since leaving school.

    Time served If you do not know is serving your apprenticeship ( IE served your time as a apprentice.)I just found it strange that you would do two apprentiships in such a short space of time.But now you have said you have worked for your father it now all makes sence.

    To be fair, I think 'time served' may be an old saying, as I'd never heard the saying before even 8 years after finishing my apprenticeship.
