With years of experience in bathroom renovations, TradeLyfe has developed a professional sense of what will both look great, as well as work in with the lifestyle for you and your family. Providing a turn-key service we take into consideration the existing layout and style of the house as well as functionality - liaising closely with you throughout the design process to ensure you are more then happy with the end result. Whether you're looking at a big or small bathroom renovation to shower recess rectification works to tiling we have you covered.
Our initial consultation is to understand what your idea of your dream bathroom is or maybe find a leak. TradeLyfe can recommend and prepare a detailed job outline with costings to show you exactly how we are going to create and shape your renovation or rectification. We then lock in a time for the construction to begin, usually a full bathroom renovation takes a 7 -14 days depending on size and style. Upon acceptation of the quotation we then sit an down and go through our written contact that states the whole process and the works that will be carried out by TradeLyfe. ) Once both parties sign, dates will be locked in and works will commence.
Depending on the size of the demolition we often start a job by placing a skip bin on the nature strip of the property, so we can make a start demolishing and clearing out any of the old bathroom fixtures and fittings, plaster, skirting boards to prepare for the renovation. To ensure quality and care we make sure we cover any protected area with drop sheets and then assess whether or not we need to remove old pipes, shower screens, basins, taps, vanities and tiles. We pride ourselves in keeping a tidy and clean site ensuring OH&S is carried out at high standards.
Once the removal of the old internal build has been completed and stripped back to frame work, we can then start to focus on the carpentry items that will be required. If there are any design rectifications or replacing of the old structure this is the ideal time to get it done. We then complete the carpentry work by adding any doors, walls, features, windows, bulkheads and any other rectification works.
Before sheeting and after all carpentry works have been doubled checked and straightened it is then ready for rough-in. TradeLyfe commission qualified Plumbing partners to complete all the necessary gas, hot and cold services work in completed to Australian industry standard. All our sub contracted partners are fully qualified and insured and do provide a compliance certificate.
After plumbing has been roughed in our qualified A grade electrical partners complete all the necessary wiring work including lights and fans, power points, mounting backing plates all completed to Australian industry standard. All our sub contracted partners are fully qualified and costings are highlighted in our initial consultation period and do provide a compliance certificate.
At this stage of the build, everything should be coming together nicely. Ceiling, floor and plastering is next to get installed but only once everything before hand has been double checked and is in perfect working order. Once the sheeting is complete, its time to get everything waterproofed, to ensure there is no future leaks which may encourage erosion and rot. Once the waterproofing is complete, the next step is tiles to walls and floors followed by installation of fixtures, cabinetry and fit off stage. This is an important stage with high level or workmanship closely monitored through out this stage for perfection.
At final inspection and hand over, we have a walk through with the client for a final chance to check over and allow the client to have a last minute touch ups or modifications if required insuring our client is 100% satisfied.
