Thanks for your response!
Hi, one more question. We have requested a new certificate of compliance for the weak mortar and our builder has ignored that so far. Their engineer came…

It is extremely unlikely that any industry expert would certify a new Performance…

Dispute with builder over brickwork

That’s appalling! I would camp out at their head office until they agreed to fix it. Sorry it happened to you.

Thanks.. Unfortunately this work was done in the last year after handover in our journey to get the bricks right. And our bricks didn't start turning orange until…

This thread has gone a bit quiet, I hope everyone's planning/building is coming along. We are a few weeks out from our colour/electrical appointments and wondered how many…
