Aussies avoiding $40 billion worth of jobs around the home

Thursday  27  February  2020  ​(Sydney,  Australia)  – ​ New  research commissioned by hipages has revealed that Aussies have accumulated an astounding $40 billion worth of maintenance work around the home over the past year, with  most  jobs  put  off  for  six  months or more. This equates to 80 million outstanding  repair and maintenance projects in Australian homes.

Whilst  these  figures  are  alarming,  the  start  of  a  new  decade  is a motivator for ticking  jobs off the to-do list. hipages​, Australia’s leading online marketplace for trusted tradies, is urging homeowners to make the most of the extra 24 hours this year on 29 February 2020, and embrace the Saturday as ‘Get It Done Day’.
