Frequently Asked Questions


See below for the answers to some of our most common questions, if you have any other questions, please contact us.

  • Do you charge to quote and how does it work?
    We provide FREE, no obligation quotes. The first step is to call or email the office to book a time so we can meet on site, have a chat about your needs and take some measurements. From there we head away, write a quote tailored to you and email it to you.
  • How long will my project take?
    As a general rule of thumb, from the date that the client pays their deposit to the day the work is completed is usually 6-8 weeks. For smaller jobs we can usually slip these in if short notice is ok with you. And for supply only work we can usually have these ready within 1-2 weeks or 2-3 weeks with powder coating. Check with the office team for the most up to date timeframes.
