Meet Vetea 

Meet the man behind the sanding machine

Behind every successful business is someone disciplined, motivated, hardworking and willing to go the extra distance to keep the client’s happy, and in the case of Timber Vision Concept, this person is Vetea Tiare.

While he doesn’t take himself too seriously, he approaches his beloved business with gusto and is determined to be a tradie on the Gold Coast that delivers on his promises. Always looking to improve the way he operates and delivering service with a smile, Vetea truly enjoys what he does.

I love wood and get a kick out of being able to transform the look of a natural product into something spectacular. But more than this, I love the reaction I get when the owners see the end result, especially if they have been renovating for months and it all comes together nicely.”

An innovative approach to doing business

Vetea has been restoring timber to its former glory for 25 years and has owned Timber Vision Concept for 18 of those. With sheer determination to succeed, the former chef started out on his own in the late 1990s, where he learned the hard way that operating a small business isn’t as easy as it sounds.

But with a resilient can-do attitude, he has built up his timber floor restoration business to be one the most reputable on the Gold Coast. As a perfectionist, he sinks his heart and soul into every project. With a passion for people, a healthy lifestyle and his partner, Vetea is a small business owner dedicated to making a difference.
