At Bunnings, we’re all about simple projects that make a huge difference to your everyday experience. That’s why we love this letterbox installation project – it takes just a couple of hours but makes the simple act of receiving mail that much easier, with no chance of lost or wet letters.
In this project, we’ll be removing your old letterbox and replacing it with a brand-new one in your chosen spot. All you’ll need is a shovel, concrete mix and some elbow grease!
Asbestos, lead-based paints and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber are health hazards you need to look out for when renovating older homes. These substances can easily be disturbed when renovating and exposure to them can cause a range of life-threatening diseases and conditions including cancer. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page.
