Have you found yourself in a position wanting to get some work done but didn’t know where to look? Did you want to get a tradesperson and want to ensure that you could get some recommendations for their work?

The Residents Association maintains a list of tradespeople/handymen that residents can use for reference. This list is based on the residents’ own experience, and only people who have been recommended by the residents are on the list. The list can be used as a source for people looking to get work done. The Residents Association advises people to get multiple quotes for any work that they need, and ensure that they get references.
