Thanks for the detailed comments! Metricon's pre-site and construction teams have been disappointing. They did well in marketing; no wonder the guy from marketing visited Metricon quite a few times…

Thansk rajat; I have contacted Houspect about this issue.

Thanks! It is a good idea to build the case for maintenance extension. What does it mean by "lucky if you have <50% effective glue cover over the complete tile....…

Will metricon do this?

We are building Vantage 48 with Metricon, which was "imported" to Sydney area. My wife and I really like the floor plan of V48, and the sales team made it…

Building Liberty 40 with provincial facade

Hebel Powerfloor insulation

Building the Metricon Doulton

Thanks, Renman. We do get the Hebel power floors as I couldn't image the floor upon some particle boards.

Thanks, Macher. Hope M will sort this out for you. Other than the subfloor, the creaking may come from joists sa well. That's why I am a little bit concerned…

Vantage 42 (S-Series) by Metricon in Victoria

In the context of recent news about building quality issues, I fully agree that independent inspection should be a mandatory part of building process, not just for project buildings, but…
