Let talk about muscle power. Namely figuring out who and what is best for not only your renovation but your business.
You wouldn’t jump into an actual renovation before setting up your business and getting that stuff sorted right?
Well, it’s exactly the same principle with the support network once you got your paperwork and your business side of things secure then you can roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty.
So, today we are going to dig a little deeper into the renovating sides of things focusing on the different types of tradies available.
There are four main groups of trades. However, this can be split into two team – This is your A and B teams
Your A-Team is all the professionals. They are going to be helping you figure out all the nitty-gritty. Help out with all the paperwork stuff for your renovation. Whereas, your B Team is your hands-on team. Your Trades. Your guys or gals who will be helping you with the actual physical side of your renovation. They are your muscle power.
4 Types of Tradies
TRADE ONE – Licensed BUILDERS
One of the most important people that you will have on your B team and like the name implies these guys and girls are fully qualified and fully licensed. If your renovation project folds into a constructive type of renovation, you will need a licensed builder. If your planning on knocking down walls you’re going to need a licensed builder.
These guys don’t come free, they come at a reasonable price point but the wealth that they bring to your renovation team is HUGE. They look after the whole physical renovation so that you have more time to focus on other things in your renovation.
TRADE TWO – LICENsED TRADES
The second group of pros are the licenced trades.
These are the people who are licenced to do the work that their undertaking. Its your electricians, your plumbers, your gas plumbers even your tilers.
We can further split it up into two subgroups. So the first subgroup of relicensed raids. These are like your electricians, asbestos removal, or any gas fitters or gas plumbers. The second subgroup here is things like carpet layers or tilers even painters.
The reason that these are two subgroups is really a legal one. You can’t really have an electrician carry out electrical work without a license is against the law. Whereas, painters or tilers don’t need to have a proper license to carry out the trade.
TRADE THREE UNLICENSED TRADES
Group three is your unlicenced trades. Hiring an unlicensed trade comes with a lot of risks compared to a licensed trade. However, they do come in handy from time to time. How so?
Well for starters there are 5-6 times cheaper and quicker to hire out than a licensed trade. But more importantly based on the experience they make an amazing asset to your B team, due to the convenience and affordability factors.
TRADE FOUR LABOURERS
The last and fourth groups are your laborers. The most essential groups on a work site. So these guys are sometimes called unskilled laborers which is slightly misleading. So their unskilled because they not be skilled or trained in a particular trade, however, they have a wealth of knowledge and can pick up so many of the tasks a licensed trade can’t do.
