3 Your Coordinator gets quotes

Your Coordinator goes out to our trusted network of tradespeople and professionals to quote for the agreed work. Depending on the work required, they may visit your home for further surveys.

4 Make your choices

Your Coordinator will discuss the quotes with you and help you decide how to proceed.

5 Your Coordinator oversees work

Your Coordinator works with the chosen contractors to undertake the work – the contractors and the Coordinator communicate regularly, taking the hassle away from you.

6 Quality standards checked

The Coordinator checks all the work is finished to required standards before approving payment to the contractors.
