OUR TEAM

STEPHEN LEAR:

Stephen Lear started the family business over 30 years ago and continues to be active in both a managerial and hands- on capacity. Having vast amounts of experience in all facets of the building industry, Stephen shares a passion for bathroom renovation with his 2 Sons, Brent and Jarryd, who he works alongside.

He is very proud of the reputation learbathrooms has attained and is adamant that the team continues to maintain these standards. His credibility and quality workmanship has been recognised by being appointed as a preferred warranty plumber for Caroma and Fowler bathroom products.

Stephen is acutely aware of the fact that he is working in people’s homes and works in a trustworthy and respectful manner. Safety, cleanliness, honesty, completing work within a reasonable time frame and with minimal disruption to the client are standards and traits Stephen displays during every bathroom renovation and has passed on to his sons. Word of mouth has always been a distinctive feature and means of growing the business and Stephen still prioritises this method of growth.

He is a true craftsman and his attention to detail is second to none.

Brent has broadened his local experience by working as a plumber in London (as the head plumber for a private school refurbishment), Washington DC and Florida.
