Sorry to read of your disappointment, but not surprised.
I consider building with JG King the biggest mistake of my life. The difference between what they promise and deliver is a…
Like the pendant lights.
Do you mind telling where you got them from and how much? Thanks.
If you've seen any of our earlier comments then you'd know we had an extremely disappointing experience with JG King.
Out of all the trades that worked on our house, I'd…
It would almost be comical... if it wasn't your money paying for their incompetence.
Check your contract, but I think the standard allowance after PCI is no greater than 21 days for handover otherwise the builder is liable for liquidated damages.
We had / are having the same debate on this issue.
Some of our doors weren't even undercoated on the top and bottom surfaces.
If they're Hume doors, then it even states…
We also had the incorrect front entry set installed, so they had to replace the whole door.
Second lock was also incorrect.
As 'bank' referred to:
From the VBA guide - Fixings or unfilled depressions caused by fixings are defective in painted or stained surfaces if they can be seen from a normal…
Good luck with the build.
Unfortunately our experience with JG King was very disappointing.
I'd be requesting (requiring) a bank cheque from them for the damages, on the same day as handover.
That's how our handover was executed, but not with PD.
Seems most volume builders have no idea of construction options beyond their standard product..
Plasterboard can most definitely be fixed to a brick wall - either directly or by using battens…
Deja Vu slapped me hard in the face as I read that.
We also had trades working to pre-contract plans that should never have seen the light of day.
And even after…
Am I correct in understanding that the 'contract specifications' clearly state that the downlights are to be brushed chrome, but the the floor plan/electrical plan says 'white'.
If that is the…
Or no greater than 14 days after building permit issued. IIRC
We did ask, but they seemed to have no idea what was available. Gave up, and just let them install the standard batten fittings.
I've replaced them now with 1200mm LEDs,…
Is that your garage ceiling with the fluoros?
Think they would use slim LED fittings for those now - similar cost, slim fitting, lower wattage, and last for yearsss.
That vinyl flooring, so ..... durable
Melbourne metro. If you're regional, maybe you'll have better luck.
We built with JG King, and we were bitterly disappointed. Suggest you find an alternative.
Wish we had stuck to our guns more, but circumstances precluded us delaying handover.
There were some issues I had resolved to accepting as is, but whilst I was fixing myself…
We have the concealed wastes, and yes they do require more cleaning, especially if there are long haired users in the household.
I clean ours out at least once a fortnight,…
Hurrow, depends on how far you want to take it, but may be worth lodging an application with VCAT.
A number of houses in our estate were designed clearly with (minor)…
Our garage access door was damaged during construction due to being forced open, but they just patched up the area and painted it. It's still evident where the repair is…
When he referred to charges ($), are these above and beyond any deposit you've already paid?
I can't see how he can hold you accountable for any costs beyond that if…
Exactly how we felt at various stages pre-contract, and hoped that things would turn around as the build progressed.
Nope - only got worse.
Best of luck, but I'd genuinely suggest…
Sounds like our "S'visors".
They frequently seemed to have no idea about what their trades were actually doing, or what had been completed.
That is an improvement over our inclusion which was just a 'paving slab'.
One of them said some of the units use a glycol solution which can add considerable to the complexity of any handling.
Another who used to be a service agent, wouldn't…
