    Looking for tradesman - not a Jack Of All Trades!

    I have had enough of the Hong Kong "contractor" who seems to be a Jack of all trades and certainly not a Master of any of them. I am looking for a SKILLED plasterer and decorator, someone who is proud of the work they do, rather than bodging the job just to get it finished and get paid.

    Has anyone come across such a Tradesman in the Clearwater Bay / Sai Kung area?

    They don't exist in Hong Kong.

    The contractor hires the tradesmen directly to do the job. It sucks that one has to go through a middleman as the tradesmen do not advertise their services very well to the public. What you can do is go to Wan Chai where they sell drywall and ask the store to recommend a trademan to you directly.

    or find a neighbour that is renovating and directly negotiate with the sifu that does the walls.
