Having grown up with a father who built rammed earth walls for a living, seeing a couple come to our home to discuss their dream home and then seeing that become a reality a few months later was normal.
As an adult, in a different state without those word of mouth connections from the family business, the desire to build a home required identifying a reliable builder.
Having previously worked in a complaints department for a major airline, it wasn’t hard to take notice of an article in the Sydney Morning Herald stating that builder complaints are the second largest area behind complaints about household electrical appliances and white goods. With 8406 complaints received by the NSW Department of Fair Trading in 2010/11, it didn’t take long to realise that finding a great builder may take some time.
To put simply, the intention behind Aussiebuilder.com is to connect those registered builders and trade contractors such as electricians, carpenters, plumbers and painters who are focused on quality with those who appreciate it.
