Our Trades People
Were extremely selective about who we have work in your home.
Most of our trades-people have been with us for several years. Theyre good people who are tried and proven.
At recruitment, our screening process for our trades included three checkpoints:
1. Registered & Qualified.
Youll know theyre trade qualified, up to the mark and deliver Australian construction standards. Each trade is registered and demonstrates a high standard of work including keeping their workplace (your home) tidy.
2. The Right Attitude.
Past experience proves that happy, friendly, communicative people onsite make for a better quality outcome. Theyre also more reliable and take pride in their work.
We excluded tough guys, because we wanted friendly, co-operative types who comprehend the needs of those around them.
This is a key ingredient in making your renovation project run smoothly
3. Good Character.
Youll know theyre reputable because each person on Makeover Group projects has undergone a police check when we originally took them on. We also spoke with their past employers/clients to check their references and get to know more about them.
We took this approach because while it may be our workplace, its your home.
