As a last resort I’m posting here and hope you can help.
I’m looking for a reliable and competent carpenter to do some small reno-related jobs in the Mitcham and Blackburn areas – e.g. at the moment I need 8 doors hung and a quote on a deck.
Brilliant chippy (carpenter) Ben who I’d built a great rapport with moved to Mansfield and I’ve been trying without success to find a suitable replacement.
If you can recommend someone who does a good job at a fair price, it would be very much appreciated. Feel free to PM me.
Thanks in advance [biggrin]
Thanks to everyone who responded. Have now got someone on the job and a list of great contacts for the future.
Once again, a great response from forum members. What a great crowd you all are!

Do you care to share the list?JULES1Participant@jules1Join Date: 2003Post Count: 147
Yes agree Nats12. I am in need of some tradespeople for my place in mitcham and would be interested in hearing about the list.
I need a carpenter, plasterer, & tiler.
I will be putting in a wooden deck, and fixing plaster, updating cupboards, & retiling inside. So would be grateful for any information on good tradespeople in the Mitcham, Blackburn area.

I PM’d to this originally so thought I’d share my contact for anyone interested.

I’ve known Graeme for 13 years and found him to be very reliable always. He lives in Nunawading and has recently gone out on his own and formed a partnership with another chippy so it is a great time to get him and form a relationship as he is in the establishing phase of his business. Any questions lwt me know or better still give him a call!

I know you have a chippy, but I have just got a quote from a builder with a top reputation for a subdivision I am doing.
You might want to hold on to his details for future referance.
He is building a 15 Square unit including garage for $120,000.
I shoped around a fair bit and found his work to be the best i’ve seen and definately good value for money. His details are,
9386-6071 or 0413 733 067
I really appreciate the contact. Am in the US at the moment but when I get back, next property project will be a unit development.
Have a great day!

I have been using a great site that allows you to search for carpenters, builders, landscapers and other tradespeople in your local area. http:www.HomeImprovementPages.com.au.
It’s good because you can actually read information and them and what they specialise in.
Hope this helps [biggrin]
