Today we wanted to write an article that showcases an incredible and slightly unusual job that Melbourne General Plumbing Services recently completed in Pearcedale. Melbourne General Plumbing Services were initially approached by the owners for a rather simple job at their home. When we arrived at the property to complete the works we found that we had far more opportunity than originally thought. Our clients were unaware of the vast work that we did and were pleasantly surprised that MGPS offered a much more cost effective and higher quality solution to more than one of their problems.
The client had initially called upon us to come to their premises and quote on a new kitchen sink installation, a rather simple plumbing job. Once we arrived at their home to quote the required job, we were presented with another opportunity to quote on a much larger part of their home. The owners had two dwellings on their property and were desperately needing a new roof for both. After the first conversation regarding the re roofing they had also expressed that they would like to install colorbond fascias and colourbond guttering.
As we were only out there to quote on the kitchen sink installation, it was incredibly lucky that the branding on the MGPS vehicles has a list of our services. The client noticed the branding and saw that we also did roofing. The clients had already had someone else out to their property to give them a quote on the roof, we got to chatting about what the other people had quoted, to them it seemed rather high and then we were asked to also provide a quote.
The re roofing for the two dwellings was anything but a stock standard job. The first dwelling was an octagon shaped home and the other was a hexagon. It was a tad bit bizarre to us as you do not come across many 8 sided or even 6 sided homes. The unusual yet beautiful home meant that the standard guttering & fascia used on a standard roof could not be used. Our amazing team and skilled craftsmen were able to bend and install irregular guttering to the right angles to fit.
Melbourne General Plumbing Services had the right set of skills and man power to complete the task at hand and we were able to provide a quote to the client for a whopping $10,000 LESS than what the other people quoted. Due to our ability to install an alternative roof guttering, the installation was easier on the odd shaped building and this allowed us to provide a lesser quote. When going through the quote and explaining what we would have to do the client seemed slightly skeptical, but loved the transparency and the enthusiasm and we were able to jump on board and get the job done. Since the completion of both sink installation and new roof the client is extremely satisfied, they are happy with the quality of our work and we know they will happily recommend us to their friends and family and call us again in the future.
We are happy to say that the guttering blends beautifully with the fascias and compliments their home perfectly.
