Need a verandah kit built


Narrabundah ACT, Australia

3rd Oct 2022

I need a carpenter or appropriate handy person as I have a half-bullnose kit that needs to be put up. All materials are here and it just needs to be installed in line with supplied instructions. The supplier is Lyrebird Industries in Victoria. They have instructions and some videos explainers on their website. - Due date: Before Wednesday, 19 October 2022

In the end I was happy, but this was a complex task and needed a significant amount of oversight from me. Jayson was great, prompt, communicative and knowledgeable about a variety of things. He arrived at my place with a labourer, someone that he hadn’t worked with before. Unfortunately, the labourer made a number of errors, resulting in the need to modify the design and purchase additional materials. This person also was a little careless onsite and caused some other damage to my property. Jayson was apologetic and worked hard to find a resolution to the issues and ‘make good’ on the quoted job. I have to commend his tenacity and persistence. I recommended that Jayson not bring that labourer onto another job. Jayson agreed. In the end, I have a verandah and I’m pretty happy with the result. It needs a few ‘extra’ holes filled because some timber’s were originally positioned incorrectly. To Jayson’s credit, he hadn’t built a bullnose verandah before and they’re a bit more complex.
