Renovating a bathroom is one of the larger investments you’ll make when updating your home. Many stages of the work is required to be completed by registered tradespeople to ensure the work complies with your local rules and regulations.

While you can complete some of the labour yourself, such as choosing the tiles, drains and fittings, and demolition work, many choose to employ a builder who can project manage the job, or source their own tradespeople for each stage.

Coordinating the project work can be a juggling act, lining up plumbers, electricians and tilers, and you want to make sure you’ve got a reliable and trustworthy team on your side.

Word of Mouth

Some of the best local trades people can be found by asking around and one of the most powerful marketing tools is a solid recommendation from a friend or family member.

Not only can you get a feel for the price range, the workmanship and reliability of the team will be known also.

Tradie Directories

Trades directories such as Hipages and Find My Tradies are also an excellent source of finding qualified and quality trades people. Those platforms offer reviews and comments, so you can get real feedback and several quotes for your job before making an informed decision on the tradespeople you choose.

Employ a Builder

Another option is to employ a builder to project manage your bathroom renovation project, who will already have his own team of specialists and will also have a range of trusted contractors they use on a regular basis.


After you’ve had your work completed, don’t forget to ask for your warranties and waterproofing certificates. If there is ever a problem or leak, you’ll need these in the case of an investigation.


When searching for quality local tradespeople, referrals and references are key to finding workers who provide the best service and finish, all in compliance with building rules and regulations.

Whether you decide to complete some of the work yourself, or employ someone to complete the entire project from start to finish, you’ll be sure to find the right team via a genuine review or recommendation.
