Why use an SDF Decorator?

Our members are reputable, qualified tradespeople and, as such, they have to fulfill a strict criteria for SDF membership.

An SDF member and his/her employees are properly trained, insured and work to certified standards and legislation.

And they’re bound by the SDF’s Code of Conduct

In the unlikely event that you are unsatisfied with your SDF decorators’ work, we use mediation and conciliation, a voluntary process that facilitates constructive discussion between parties in dispute to help them resolve their issues.

That way, the parties in dispute control the process – they agree beforehand how it develops, who will be involved and when, where and how it starts and finishes.

Most mediation and conciliation reaches a satisfactory outcome in one day so it’s cost effective for everyone. And it’s confidential. Importantly, it doesn’t affect your legal rights.

Remember, the Federation can only help if your decorator is a member of the SDF.
