Joinery Round Up

We have had a slow start as far as Joiners go, we have seen some nice jobs being reported from around the traps. The reports I hear from Christchurch seem to suggest that although quoting is very active the rate of success is not so active!! I guess the reality is that there has been a huge amount of repair and new build going on and so new wooden joinery could face some challenges in the coming years. In Auckland its a mixed bag as again a very active quoting market is not seeing as many acceptances. Some thinking around the shortages of building trade skills meaning that jobs are being delayed and held up could mean we are not going to see a lot of growth??? A common theme I hear is that political uncertainty has help things up. The lack of a clear direction in terms of house pricing has meant speculators are not as sure of where to put their money. All these things mean decisions are slower and when combined with trades being short of people to do the work. its a mixed bag. Some Joiners report 8-10 week order files others heaps, then we hear of others who are holding onto margins saying they are scratching for work.

Wackrows from Cambridge di a fine job of the Windows and Doors in this home.

The shutters on this job done on Great Barrier Island were supplied by The Renall Door & Window Co in Carterton.
