What does hiring a tradie include?

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 & cabinetmaking

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 surrounds. 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.

Electrician/tradie unafraid to change lampshades


Belconnen ACT, Australia

16th Mar 2021

I need to have two pendant lampshades taken down and replaced with two other pendant lampshades. For an electrician it's a 10 minute job but does require you to undo the wiring at the opening of the pendant lampshades and to rewire and affix the new pendants into place. I'm not game to do it myself:) I'm not insisting you be an electrician, but you MUST know what you are doing and complete the job with guaranteed safety. I'd like this job completed as soon as possible. Thank you:)

Excellent! Prompt, friendly, fast, professional!!

Opening up built in wardrobes x 2


Bonner ACT, Australia

10th Oct 2020

I have 2 built in wardrobes where the openings are too small. I need the sides cut opened and the top as well to just below the ceiling. No rubbish removal as I will do this myself. Just need a carpenter to make the wardrobe opening larger and put a timber frame around the opening so that I can get mirrored sliding doors installed. The tradesperson also needs to paint the new timber frame white. I have the paint but need your brushes, drop sheets etc. Not sure how much this costs so quote higher if necessary. I am flexible with when this can be done but need it done on a Saturday (either 10th Oct, 17th Oct, 24th Oct or 31st Oct)
