Hello,
I am in Rosebud and would like a quote for a front fence with gates please. I like the wooden fence with exposed beams but am open to suggestions that fall within my budget. I have been told the length is approximately 14 metres, including driveway. Many thanks

I am looking to receive a quote for a retaining wall. I don't mind which materials are used (eg sleepers or blocks). The wall would be 16 metres long and tapers to a maximum height of 2 metres. If I could get some assistance that would be great.

I have several smallish jobs i need doing: installing a length of guttering along one part of the roof; installing some flashing between house and porch roof; checking porch support posts for rot, and repairing them; removing, but not replacing another short piece of guttering; also probably installing ? flashing high up on the roof, where there appears to be a leak maybe due to wind damage.

Hello Ede, I recommend Sam. Just finished my house interior painting. It's great. The price is fantastic compared to other quotes. Ring grey army and ask Karen, for Sam the painter. He is polite and works quickly. He has 26 years experience. Good luck Ede.

Hi, my mum is due to have the exterior of her house painted very soon by two fellas from the Grey Army. The price seems quite reasonable just wondering what other peoples reviews of their homes painted would be? Did they do a good job?

Ask the GA how long the contractors have been with the Grey army for. If they are new be wary, if over 1 year then they will be trust worthy.

Would the Grey Army do a small job such as changing a light globe?

I you do, what would the charge be for a pensioner? Do you have tradesman on call on the weekends and how soon would you be able to fix it after being called? We are going away and usually do these things for our elderly neighbour as she worries about being oft without a light.

Thank you!

I am so pleased I have read these reviews however there must be some other people who have had better experiences. I would like to find someone who is willing to do small jobs and then if they are willing and good more work will come their way. The good ones have so much work they are hard to get. Are there any recommendations for Canberra?

don't bother Judy!!....just don't.

I have my answers and I won't be contacting the Grey Army and sticking with people who are recommended even for a slightly higher fee. Taking advantage of pensioners is terrible and older people - I definitely won't be contacting the Grey Army - thanks everyone for the advice.

This is not my experience Judy. We have used the grey army on many ocassions here in melbourne with great satisfaction. I would suggest asking for them to send you either a franchisee or an experienced tradesperson, not someone new to the organisation.

Stop assuming all Trades people are the same, would you like someone to bad mouth your Career? I think Not. Sick to death of it, give it a rest!

I was thinking of ringing GA to get a small job done but after reading these letters I wouldn't touch them with a 40 ft.pole. Thanks for your advice everyone.

Judy
Judy  

To Lucy - we are not assuming all Trades people are the same we are hoping for some positive feedback and experiences. I could give a page full of experiences so if you have had a good experience and recommendation please share it with us that is what this forum is about. If you read other replies you will see that there are some very happy with the trades but that was in a different State to me. Please share your recommendations

I have no idea just contacted them through the Net. to do a small plastering job for me. The plasterer who quoted had retired and getting on in years and only wanted to do small jobs which mine was. the full time plasterers were not interested as the job was too small or they wanted an arm and leg for their service. The service by the Fray Army was excellent by the way.

I can't see to many plasterers being able to work full time until they are seventy.
