What does a tradesman do?

Tradesmen (and tradeswomen!) can help you tackle the tasks that need the expertise, tools, and knowledge that only a qualified local tradie can give. Whether you need help with home repairs or construction, you can find tradespeople to help with tasks like:

Electrical & plumbing

When you hire a tradie to work with electricity, gas, or water, they’ll need special qualifications, training, and equipment to keep you and your house safe from fires, flooding, and property damage. You’d need to hire an electrician to install your new light fittings or electrical equipment, like ovens. And you’d need a plumbing tradie to help with plumbing tasks, like fitting new taps and pipes, or gas plumbing tasks like installing or repairing heaters and stoves. Your tradie will start by asking questions about the issues you’re having, then they’ll do a physical inspection of the area to assess the work needed. They’ll use their specialist tools and equipment to repair, install, or replace parts to get everything working properly.

Carpentry & cabinet making

Tradesmen are usually qualified professionals, so they’re ideally suited to tasks that need a higher skill level than a handyman. Carpenters and cabinet makers are in high demand for installing new cabinets, custom-making furniture and installing built-in robes and cupboards. They’ll measure your space to ensure the furniture and built-ins fit perfectly and match your existing decor. Then they’ll work with a range of equipment and tools (onsite or offsite) to cut and shape the wood, then assemble any parts to create your finished product.


Tradesmen can help provide a professional finish to your exterior building tasks. For example, installing or repairing balustrades. Your professional tradesmen will measure, fit and install glass, metal, or wood balustrades to make your balcony area or stairs safe while matching the design of your home. Once they’ve established a safe work zone, they’ll remove the old balustrades before installing the new parts. Another popular exterior task is installing or upgrading awnings. Your tradie can pull down old, broken, or faded awnings and help you choose a new awning to match your house and surroundings. Then they’ll carefully install the new awning so that it is safe and secure.

Concrete repairs & resurfacing

When concrete is damaged, it can create trip hazards, and let in water, dirt and other pests, which can cause further damage. Concrete resurfacing can help repair damage and give your property an instant update with coloured concrete overlays and/or designs. Your tradie will first assess the damage, then repair or replace any broken areas. Then they may clean the existing area with high-pressure hoses or chemicals. Once the area is clean and prepared, they’ll mix up a thin, concrete-based surface compound that will cover the area.

Post Trim made and fitted with FC Sheeting and Rendered


Bowen Hills QLD, Australia

4th Mar 2024

This is a jack of all trades job, ideally I would like one person to take care of the post covers and the render ( I can work around this if necessary) I have ugly pole footings to deal with. I am looking to have FC sheeting boxes built around them, then render to a nice clean finish, to be followed by painting by others. Price is for you to provide material and labour. My estimate is based around complete project; fit/render. This can be discussed. I am looking for someone to carry this job out to a professional high standard. Location is on 4th level of an Apartment building, for ease of access with the FC, it would be more efficient to cut a large sheet down to transport and refine onsite as needed. I have attached a drawing to explain the project. Feel free to ask any questions prior to providing a quote.

Build a higher balustrade on our deck

We need a qualified carpenter to take down this existing balustrade, and put in a higher one. We are moving in soon and our large dog will be able to jump this.

Check out the ‘Questions’ for a photo - it won’t let me upload for some reason. - Due date: Needs to be done on Friday, 19 January 2024

Brae works with the energy and enthusiasm of someone his age, but with the quality and workmanship of someone 20 years older. We couldn’t have been happier with the job he did. He went above and beyond what we asked him to do and it looks much better than we expected. I would highly recommend him and would use him again in a heartbeat.
