Since being involved in the construction industry, I have seen and heard some shocking stories about dodgy work. This is my number one tip for anyone looking for a tradie.

- That it is current
- In their own name
- That it doesn’t have any restrictions
I didn’t know:
- A carpenter can work under another builder’s licence
- Their licence may only enable them to do a certain value of work
- Some tradies who advertise as a builder may only have a maintenance and cleaning licence
