I’m Daniel, a local, born and raised in Perth . I live in Gwelup with my wife Bree and two sons Zack and Oscar.
I learnt the plastering trade when I was 15 during the school holidays from a family friend, while studying TEE. I was planning to be a mechanical engineer but decided to to get out into the “real world” and eventually started my own plastering business when I was 19.
By nature I’m a perfectionist, every job I completed had to be better then the last. By the time I was 24, I was being contracted by many high profile builders such as Manor Homes, Gemmil Homes and Webb-Brown Neaves. I have plastered many display homes, including Gemmil homes first. About 4 years ago, I worked so hard that I developed an injury in my right hand, which forced me to stop plastering for the foreseeable future.
After a 4 year break and a bit of Physiotherapy, my right hand fully recovered. I decided to no longer work for builders because the work is very physically demanding.
I wondered what I could do as a plasterer that would be easy on my body and be enjoyable.
Then, I remembered all the existing homes is used to render in between my building jobs.
I enjoyed rendering older, existing homes more then rendering new homes. But, it wasn’t easy. I had to be very careful not to make a mess and there was a lot of trial and error.
I decided to dedicate myself to rendering existing homes only and develop a process that would ensure no mess, a high quality and long lasting finish.
Now, Perth homeowners have the option of choosing “Perth Render” for their home rendering needs. To my knowledge, we are one of the few companies, if not the only that only specialises in rendering existing homes. This means you deal with a company that are the experts in their field.
