Its never easy to decide whether its worth to renovate or detonate. If getting down and dirty is not your thing, you can always check out Gumtree.com.au for local plumbers, electricians, cabinetmakers, landscapers etc. They have a vast range of professionals. Just to be cautious of unlicenced tradies though and ask for their certification (electrical certificate) and request to see previous work and contacts of their previous customers. You can always just Google it, but normally you will find that these companies are priced really high, unless you have the money to throw around I’d stick to Gumtree.
Remember to do your due diligence.
These are some questions, you can ask.
1. Ask for Licence Number
2. Ask for Previous Work
3. Ask for previous customers
4. How long they have been in business
5. Do they Guarantee their work?
This should get you started.
