Company founder John Davis came to the building industry 25 years ago as a mature-age carpenter after a successful career in IT sector. His business background, combined with a solutions-focussed outlook gives him a unique edge and he enjoys working with customers to come up with the best solution for them – from a budget, design and building perspective.
Having worked in the residential building industry for a number of years, John recognised a need for licensed builders who specialise in small jobs. He heard from many customers that they simply couldn’t get a builder to come out for anything less than a mid-size renovation.
We love small building jobs and now, it’s all we do in Hobart and surrounding suburbs. 5to50 is ready to assist homeowners with small building jobs ranging from window and door replacements to kitchen renovations, new decks and renovations.
How can we help you?
Our aim is to complete your work in a timely, cost-efficient, professional manner and to a high standard. We treat all our customers with respect and ask that our customers do the same – with employees, contractors and management. We take pride in our work and we charge on a “cost plus materials” basis – this means that you pay by the hour for our fully licensed carpenters and sub-contractors and then pay for materials (timber, paint, tiles etc) either through us or direct to the supplier.
Many customers ask for a fixed price quote – that is, a price that doesn’t change no matter what happens (excluding client-approved variations). We are happy to this discuss with customers who have DA-approved, or professionally drafted plans with a comprehensive written scope of works. If you don’t have this we believe the fairest way to proceed is to provide an estimate and do the works as “cost plus”. Of course we can always do the plans and scope of works for you using one of our professional design partners.
