Straight from the Tradie: Platinum Property Improvements reviews SlimWall™
Platinum Property Improvements are outdoor renovation specialists transforming homes across the Gold Coast & Tweed Heads area. Builder Graeme O’Malley gives us his thoughts on using SlimWall at a recent job in Robina, QLD.
Q. What was your/the client’s main priorities when deciding on which wall to use?
Graeme: Cost played a considerable part, as the client’s project was coming to a close and they wanted a high-end looking wall, but within tight budget.
Q. Why did you choose SlimWall?
Graeme. Cost was a big factor, but also being a duplex, anything to take a little noise away from both sides helped, so having the acoustic properties was a winner. It also had to fit in with a very flash new modern architectural build, and I knew it would fit in nicely if it was done in the right colours.
It certainly saved money for the client in comparison to other designs they had in mind, being concrete or brick wall, etc – plus much quicker, of course!
Q. How long did the installation take? How did you find it?
Graeme: Installation took 3 days for the total project – first day setting posts, second day installing panels, third day painting.
Q. What finish did you utilise for the fence?
Graeme: We finished the panels had 3 coats of a Dulux Exterior Paint.
Q. How did you find working with the ModularWalls team?
Graeme: As always, the ModularWalls team was faultless, from start to finish – always on hand to answer questions and help deliver as quick as possible. No pain points at all.
Q. Are you happy with the final result? Is the client?
Graeme: The client, D&C House, was over the moon and has since asked me to return to quote another couple of sections for the potential new owners of the properties, as they also liked the modular fencing. It’s certainly led to future work with the builder as well.
