What do tradies 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. You can find a tradie 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.

We need a verandah constructed as well as concreting. All building permits etc have been issued and in force. Work is half complete. Been let down by an unreliable builder. Work left to complete is - 1. - 7 concrete footings to be filled. (Already inspection passed). 900 x 900 by 1.5 deep. 2. Wooden Verandah to be constructed. Pictures attached. 3. Approximately 70 - 80 sq metres of concreting to be done under verandah and side of house. This job should be inspected and quoted properly and you should have the relevant skills and equipment complete it. Like i said we have been let down and burned badly by a builder, so please dont waste our time. If you cannot start this job straight away and stay until completion, then please dont respond to this ad. I can post further pics and builders drawings to serious interested parties. Ballan is in stage 3 restrictions area. The building work has permits which make it essential work as it comes under construction etc. Cheers John
