NSW Central Coast customers call out accident prone tradie Trent Reid

Some folks seem to be more accident-prone than others and customers who’ve dealt with roofer Trent Reid say “tradesman Trent” takes the cake.

“It was like an episode of Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em,” Adam Watts told A Current Affair, likening Reid to the calamitous sitcom character Frank Spencer.

Watts hired Reid to carry out roof restoration work on his house on the NSW Central Coast, but Reid’s water blaster flooded the hallway and bathroom and cut power to the house.

Further north, Terry Pool said Reid’s water blaster stripped asbestos off his garage roof and deposited the deadly dust across the beloved motorbike he’s restoring.

The NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal ordered Reid to pay both men thousands of dollars for the damage caused to their property.

“He had 21 days to pay. (I) haven’t heard from him,” Pool said.

So we paid Reid a visit and like Spencer, tradie Trent was very coy about what actually happened on those jobs.
