Summer is already here, and this is the time of year that Queenslanders love to get out on their decks with family and friends.
So if you are planning on holding a holiday celebration on the deck at your property, now is the time to get your deck checked.
Decks and balconies require regular and effective maintenance to help ensure their long-term safety. The frequency of this maintenance depends on the materials, type of finish, climate and the degree of exposure to the weather.
It is extremely important when renovating or restoring prefabricated pools that the vinyl liner waterproofing be replaced with another vinyl liner or PVC membrane, and not an alternative rigid surface finish.
Many prefabricated pools constructed in the 1970s through to mid-2000s are now due for refurbishment, so this is a timely reminder of what to consider to ensure the pool remains waterproof.
If an owner chooses to withdraw during the cooling-off period (which is five business days), then they must give you, as the contractor, a written withdrawal notice.
You are entitled to receive or retain an amount equal to any out-of-pocket expenses you have reasonably incurred up to the time the owner withdrew, and if you have given the owner the required documentation you are also entitled to an additional $100.
