David was very friendly and a true professional. He identified the problem with my pergola the moment he got here and what was half a day job turned into a full day but he did not charge me for the whole day.

What do builders’ services include?

Local builders can help you with your needs and concerns regarding constructing your home, office, business or any dream property! Here’s what you can expect from builders near you:

Conceptualisation and planning

Before general builders start your construction project, the first stage is to create your concept behind it and plan the blueprints, design and other essential elements. Feel free to plan precisely how you want to as your Tasker guides you to ensure everything is up-to-code and the design and structure are sound and stable. Once the construction plans and blueprints are ready, the next step would be obtaining building and construction permits. This may sound overwhelming, but your Tasker can help you get the right planning permission for your project.

Implementation and execution

Once all the necessary documents and planning are done, your Tasker can now start your construction project! This stage usually starts with clearing and excavating the land to remove boulders, trees or anything that stands in the way of your building. It can also mean demolishing an old property standing on your preferred space while following building regulations. Afterwards, they can proceed with pouring and curing the foundation. Framing comes next, and that includes installing wooden frames and steel beams. 

When your property has been completely framed out, that’s where doing rough electrical and plumbing work comes in. A good builder will install the roof, vents, ductwork, heating, and cooling units and may even start paving your driveway and other outdoor spaces.

Finalisation and completion

The interior of your property is completed at this stage. General builders near you install insulation, drywall, ceilings and outlets. And once the interior walls are good to go, that’s when fixtures such as lighting, windows and doors are added. Renovating the bathroom and installing tubs, toilets, faucets, and sinks can also be a part of this phase. The final step in building services covers finishing touches, from installing your flooring and painting your walls to putting countertops in. 

A construction project may leave a massive mess once it’s finished. Get someone to clean after the builders to make your property look more polished without you having to lift a finger!

Driveway restoration


Kilsyth South, Victoria, Australia

29th Jan 2023

I'm only looking to make the driveway more presentable because I'm selling shortly, not after a completely new driveway which wouldn't be worth it for me.    Also this needs to be done quickly so if you are booked out for the next month then it's not going to work for me unfortunately. Please see attached pics of my driveway.   I was thinking about getting the cracked section on the main driveway redone and the path by the front door raised slightly with some aggregate concrete (marked in red on the pictures). Thanks, Chris
