The company provided them Key Board Perforated Plasterboard to incorporate acoustic treatments and optimise the sound at their property Pole House, which is situated on the Great Ocean Road on Victoria’s Surf Coast. Keystone has a reputation for precision and product consistency. Their extensive list of eco-friendly and fully customisable fire rated options are excellent for construction of beautiful, functional and totally unique spaces. Key-Board perforated plasterboard panels offer superior sound insulation with excellent design flexibility. They are lightweight and easy to install. These acoustic panels can be integrated seamlessly with other plaster features. They are used in interior acoustic wall and ceiling systems for lecture theatres, cinemas and auditoriums, ceiling and wall feature panels. Kathi Adams said, “Updating a 70’s icon into the 21st century is not an easy task, so when we decided to renovate our beach place, The Pole House, on the Great Ocean Road on Victoria’s Surf Coast, we were keen to keep it’s iconic profile but to exploit the advantages that modern steel and glass technologies have to offer to enhance both internal ambience and the spectacular views along the coast, which stretch from the Aireys Inlet Split Point Light House to well beyond Lorne.” Ray Adams said, “Adding a large, three bedroom home (also primarily made of steel and glass with a polished concrete floor throughout) on the cliff overlooking the Pole House, with a large, open plan living environment only added to the challenge.” “The trouble with glass, concrete, steel and wide open space is that they are not kind to internal acoustics and being tragic audiophiles, with a range of ultra-high end stereo and home theatre equipment we knew we needed to incorporate acoustic treatments into both houses to optimise the sound,” Ray added.  Kathy said, “We engaged an acoustic consultant who specified the use of a variety of ceiling and wall treatments, all supplied by Keystone Acoustics which delivered not only amazing sound, but also gave us a finished look that is stunning.” “Catherine Pomiecko, Project Manager at Keystone Acoustics worked with us from the beginning and provided exceptional service and advice, which resulted in a look and quality of sound that has not only met, but exceeded our expectations. Thank you Catherine and Keystone for adding your special magic to our home,” Kathy said.  Keystone can be contacted for information on their products and meeting specific acoustic requirements by calling (02) 9604 8813.

The company is constantly updating information relevant to their customers so that they can benefit from it. Recently the company reported that there have been changes in the United Kingdom customs border control. A new customs clearance process has been introduced by the UK government.  People who are planning on moving to the UK have to get their goods cleared for entry by the customs service. A transfer of residence application will need to be completed. This used to be a manual process that was carried out by the shipper but now it will have to be done electronically by the person who is relocating. Under certain conditions, a person can import used personal effects and household goods into the country without having to pay any customs duty and tax. These conditions are applicable if they are moving their household to the UK and have lived outside the EU for at least the last 12 consecutive months and have used and had possession of the goods for at least the last 6 consecutive months. The conditions also include if they are moving used goods and are going to continue using them in the new place of residence in the UK for at least the next 12 months or will be importing the goods within 12 months of coming to live in the UK. The said goods cannot be lent out, pledged, given away, hired out or transferred within the first 12 months after the date of import. Inherited goods can also be imported without paying duty and tax if there is proof that the goods have been willed or given to the person as part of the estate. If goods of a commercial nature such as alcohol and tobacco products are included in the shipment, the person moving it will have to pay import duty and tax on them. Controls are very tight in matters concerning banned and restricted goods such as drugs, firearms, weapons, food and articles manufactured from wildlife. Some of these goods are completely banned while others may require special permits or licences for importation. Banned and restricted goods include illegal drugs, offensive weapons, self-defence sprays, endangered animal and plant species, rough diamonds, indecent and obscene materials and personal imports of meat and dairy products from most non-EU countries. Restricted goods such as firearms, explosives and ammunition need a special licence to bring them in to the UK. All those who are planning to move to UK should ensure that they get updated about the latest requirements so that there are no disappointments or problems while making the move. Conroy Removals provides their clients with all the directions and advice not only in such matters but also all other aspects of the move. Conroy Removals is a trust worthy company that provides a safe, secure, friendly and professional moving service. Their services include specialised packing by trained professionals, easy insurance for peace of mind, convenient storage in secure facilities, care of motor vehicle shipping, foreign exchange, pet transportation, house cleaning and valet unpacking.

The new site is more responsive with a faster load time and better mobile capabilities.  If you are currently building a new home or buying an existing property, it is always advised to enlist the services of an independent building inspector. They can detect defects that the average homeowner could easily miss, possibly resulting in expensive rectification works.  In Western Australia, the contract of sale is typically signed subject to a structural building inspection. This inspection details the structural elements of a property: internal/external walls, floors, roof frame and rising or lateral damp that may be evident. The structural inspection is a basic assessment of the property to determine any structural faults that may be evident.  It is highly advised that the buyer only use the services of a building inspector who is a registered builder, architect, surveyor or structural engineer to undertake these inspections. Crazily, the market is unregulated in W.A, and many of the building inspectors are unqualified and inexperienced and should not be determining the structural soundness of a building. There is no current qualification defined as a " qualified building inspector" as many companies state.  Would you take your car for a service to an unqualified mechanic? Probably not, so why would you have your house inspected by an unqualified inspector.Their new site is full of useful information, which you can view at https://www.masterbuildinginspectors.com.au How to Use BookaSkip in the UK 2017-04-24T03:09:10Z how-to-use-bookaskip-in-the-uk If you are moving in or out of your home, or renovating, or even clearing out your garden, wherever you are in the United Kingdom, BookaSkip will make sure your next project is achieved with the minimum of inconvenience.

SleepMaker’s Sleep Guide Gives Tips for Buying a Bed for the Perfect Sleep 2017-04-20T03:02:51Z sleepmaker-s-sleep-guide-gives-tips-for-buying-a-bed-for-the-perfect-sleep SleepMaker is one of Australia’s largest bedding companies with a reputation for developing superior quality, technologically advanced bedding solutions. The company has prepared a 'Sleep Guide' to provide customers with all the information they need to help them choose the best bed for themselves.   Everyone needs good sleep. It is one of the most essential ingredients for excellent health and the overall wellbeing of a person. The Sleep Guide provides expert advice for better sleep and a healthier, happier and holistic lifestyle. There are special needs to think about when a bed has to be purchased for those who suffer from back pain, sore hips and shoulders. Having the right mattress will do a lot to enhance comfort, reduce aches and pains.   The guide puts forward various aspects of a bed for consideration before a customer makes the final choice. These aspects include the body-type of the person and their specific needs in keeping with it. Everyone has a different sleep posture. They could be a side, back or tummy sleeper and the bed needs to be comfortable for them when they sleep in their favorite position.     The size of the bed and mattress is very important as those who are very tall need a bed that fits them and is adequate for them. A king size or queen size bed and mattress would be right for them. When a bed is used by a couple, there needs to be adequate space for both to sleep to have undisturbed sleep. Besides this when one person moves, it should cause the least partner disturbance to the other. Pillows too make a big difference to good sleep. They provide support for the head and neck. A good pillow, when used with the right bed, is the best as it helps with correct body alignment.   SleepMaker has a history that spans over 80 years. They have 10 manufacturing sites and over 1,200 employees across Australia and New Zealand. The company belongs to the Comfort Group which has a reputation as a business that combines leading edge innovation, expertise and world-class operating processes to produce the highest quality of bedding products.   SleepMaker is constantly working towards developing advanced bedding solutions for a range of industries.

Custom Built Doors and Windows Help Perth Residents Modernise their Homes 2017-04-07T02:13:05Z custom-built-doors-and-windows-help-perth-residents-modernise-their-homes Perth, WA, 07 April 2017 - Much to their surprise, homeowners in the Perth area are finding out that they can modernise their homes solely by installing custom built doors and windows. Many are surprised because home renovations usually cost a lot of money and involve a lot of structural work, but custom built doors and windows can be installed with no structural work and for less money than the cost of a full renovation.How Custom Built Doors and Windows Modernise HomesA majority of people live in homes that were built by volume builders off of plans that are used for many such homes. To increase profits, builders try to provide quality homes but try to spend as little money as possible doing so. This results in the same ordinary doors and windows that most people have.The doors will usually be made of hollow, laminated timber unless they are made of aluminium and glass. Windows are usually made of aluminum and the cheapest glass the builder can find. Some homes have sliding patio doors, but they are usually made with the least expensive materials possible. While these doors and windows are safe and reasonably weatherproof, they still let a lot of heat and cold in and out of a home. They also tend to look the same as everyone else’s doors and windows. If a home was built 20 years ago in a neighbourhood where most or all of the homes were built 20 years ago, it will look like everyone else’s: ordinary and in need of a modernisation or upgrade.Michaela Ashord is the office administrator for Fremantle Door and Window, a creator and installer of custom build doors and windows. They offer a variety of modern and traditional door and window designs, custom built with solid timber and thick, weatherproof glass. According to Ms Ashord:“A lot of people don’t realise it, but the doors and windows have a lot to say about how your home looks. Walls are just that: walls. They can’t really determine home design except by placement. But the doors and windows can totally change the design of a home without any expensive structural work.”Ms Ashord continued: “The doors and windows determine whether your home looks dated and ordinary or fresh and modern. When you replace your ordinary aluminum windows with timber and glass designs or your patio door with timber and glass bifold doors, it totally changes how your home looks from the inside and outside. Bifold doors and an open floor plan can make your home look new on the inside.”Ms Ashord concluded: “Custom built doors and windows are the most cost-effective and quickest way to modernise your home. Second place isn’t even close.”Fremantle Door and Window create and install custom built doors and windows for homeowners in the Perth area. They build all of their doors and windows by hand with solid timber, weatherproof glass and old world craftsmanship. They offer a variety of modern options, including bifold doors and windows, sliding doors and windows, servery windows and more.

Dowling, who founded Just 1 Call, known for cleaning and polishing major supermarkets including Australia’s blue-chip premium retailers, decided to expand his business interests in late 2015 when approached to take over James’. “The previous owner did have some issues and they have been well publicised but we have moved on from there,” said Dowling, who calls the Gold Coast home. “When I looked at James’ Home Services, I could see the business model itself was sound. I also knew that if I worked on the infrastructure and management processes, I could really turn things around – and I have!” In fact, it took Dowling and his team six months to convince the Franchise Council of Australia to accept James’ Home Services back into the fold. “Let’s be honest. If I hadn’t come in with the right team behind me, the entire company would have collapsed,” he said. “At the time there were 114 franchisees and I felt I needed to save their livelihoods and their families’ livelihood. By reinvesting in the business, I know I have helped those people. They are thriving and I know this because I hear about the success stories every day.” Since taking over the company, five regional franchisors and 47 individual franchisees have joined James’ Home Services, but the team still can’t meet the high demand. “The issue we have is that we need more franchisees around the country to meet the needs of the community. At the moment, almost half of our customer enquiries go ‘unserviceable’, meaning we just don’t have franchisees in the local area able to undertake the work being asked of us. I need people around me to drive the business with me to make it number one in the nation.” Going forward, Dowling has plans to further expand James’ Home Services. “We have already added two services to our offering – pool and spa care and test and tag safety services. We are now looking to establish a commercial arm to service Australia’s larger companies. I want us to be recognised as pioneers and innovators of the industry. We are constantly pumping time and money into ensuring we have state of the art infrastructure to support our franchisees.” Dowling is also a dedicated philanthropist, husband and father. “I love to give back to the community and this job is giving me that opportunity,” said Dowling, who has donated more than $200,000 to charity in recent times. We all know that there is a gap between what the government can provide and what is actually needed. I like the way giving makes me feel. My wife feels the same and we know our children are watching and learning. As they get older, we hope they will follow my lead in helping others whenever they can.” MEDIA NOTE: For further information or to interview Mr Dowling, please contact Wings Public Relations Director Deanna Nott on 0422 504 540.  CCC Window Cleaning Becomes Trusted Cleaner's First Approved Window Cleaning Company In Perth 2017-03-31T04:05:16Z ccc-window-cleaning-becomes-trustedcleaner-s-first-approved-window-cleaning-company-in-perth Perth, AU – CCC Window Cleaning, a Perth-based full-service professional window cleaning business with special focuses in commercial, high-rise and residential homes and buildings, this week announced they have been recognized as TrustedCleaner’s first and only Perth-approved window cleaning business.

A look at the typical cable TV offerings for a week illustrate perfectly just how popular DIY home renovations are in Perth and across Australia.However, home renovations aren’t always as easy as TV shows make them look. And while there is a lot of satisfaction to be gained by performing small projects one’s self, many DIY home renovations end up creating more problems than they ever “solved.”One of the biggest pitfalls to DIY home renovation is the failure to obtain proper licensure and permission to do the work. One of the worst feelings in the world is putting time, money and effort into a completed project, only to be told it has to be torn down because it is against regulations. At the very least, those who fail to obtain the correct permits are often fined afterwards and the fine costs a lot more than the permit would have.Home Renovations are a Lot of WorkAlso, those who begin large scale home renovations often have no idea how much work they have to do. They have to obtain licenses, permits, insurance and then make sure all of their contractors have licences and insurance. They have to make sure there are no hazardous materials such as lead paint or asbestos. If hazardous materials are present, they have to dispose of them safely.They also have to hire licensed professionals for electrical work, plumbing and other speciality jobs. It can also be difficult for DIY homeowners to properly budget their jobs. They often leave out crucial materials or jobs that they later have to “add on.” It is recommended that homeowners planning to renovate add at least 10% onto their budgets to make sure they have the actual costs of the job covered.What Home Renovations Professionals Have to SayCraig Johns is the owner of Next Level Extensions, a home renovations firm in Perth. According to Mr Johns:“We know how much people love to do home renovations themselves. And in many cases, they do great jobs. But there is a time when a home renovation becomes too large for the typical DIY homeowner to handle. That is when we always recommend having a professional home renovator do the job.”Mr Johns continued: “At our firm, Next Level Extensions, we have more than 70 years’ combined experience in the field. We specialise in home renovations. We have longstanding relationships with numerous tradies who are among the best in the field of home renovations. We have seen every pitfall that can happen, from DIY homeowners having to tear down a job due to a lack of permits to having a project derailed by structural issues.”Mr Johns concluded: “People working full time jobs in other fields don’t have the time or the expertise to renovate their homes in a way that it will make them proud for years and provide value, both in the present and when it’s time to sell the home. It always makes more sense to call a professional.”Next Level Extensions provide home renovations to homeowners in the Perth area.
