    Can someone make this a sticky?

    Hi guys,

    Since I have a bit of extra these days with me being unemployed, I thought I'll start contributing more to the Somersoft. I know we have previously a compiled list but not state specific and I had to sieve through the whole thread to maybe find what I want.

    I'm limiting this thread to tradies as I'll start another thread for the professional side like architects,accountants etc. Just post and I'll edit my first post to reflect ongoing recommendations from time to time. If you used them after recommendations from here, feel free to re-recommend them again here so I can put more ppl recommended by that tradie. Also let me know how to make this thread better.

    I've left this as a Victorian only thread as I expect the throughput to be high and want to see how it goes before starting another thread for other states and trying to maintain them. You must have used them as a client/customer. NO PLUGGING YOUR OWN BUSINESS as I want this list to be a good representation of reputation.

    This is the template (any further ideas let me know)

    Tradie type (aka builder, painter):
    Name:
    Contracted Suburb(as some tradies don't travel too far):

    Garage door

    Would recommend Metro Roller Door Service Ph: 9357 7311 based in Campbellfield. I had my roller door stuck on the weekend, it wouldn't close and the guy came to fix it on the same day (otherwise I wouldn't be able to secure the garage at night)
