We are having the same problem with our front door. Actually every door that is supposed to be sealed has some sort of leak. Not good in a new estate…

Sewerage Access in way of Footpath

Hi Brian,
I measured the current riser and it's 130 mm in diameter. Can I get away with the 150 mm IO or do I need to go with the 230…

Thanks CrazyK. Will look into that too.

Sewerage Access in way of Footpath

Hi Brian,
Thank you so much for your advice. I will have a look at both options, but that pre-cast cover and frame look like a much better option. I will…

Hi All,
We recently had a concreter come out to assess and quote our concrete footpath/apron around the house.
We found that the access point for our sewerage has been placed in…

Congratulations! Such exciting times for you :) Can't wait to see some photos.
Unfortunately, we don't have any good news. Settlement has been delayed again. Was…

Sarking is an additional cost that PD does not include in the base price. We added it on no issue.
As for the insulation, wait for your energy rating application. Most…

Thank you :)
We need to get LPG installed as natural gas has been delayed to our estate. Having said that, I know from a work colleague…

We're in the same boat pretty much.
PCI Tuesday and Hand over could potentially be Friday depending on what we and the independent spot.

My bad. Yes should have been done before PCI/Handover. Our's has been cleaned about 3 times now.
As Kate said, we only had the left over bricks we requested, dips…

They get the site cleaned towards the end of the build. Landscaping and levelling in on the owner to do after hand over unless otherwise agreed.
Might want to edit…

I gotcha. Thanks for clarifying.
I agree with the contract/PCV being master. Need to invest a lot of time into those documents to get them right before going to site.
Yea…

Chris,
I agree with all your comments bar one. Preparation and decisions on masonry etc don't really change the quality of workmanship. We did lots of research and believe have made…

Darbecca have been quite good to us :)
Building Expert is also highly recommended in this forum and knows his stuff. I haven't used him before though.

We're pretty much in the same boat as you. We have been given an 'unofficial' PCI date from our SS but pretty sure he will stick to it as he…

Not stupid at all. These developers always over commit. They've done it at every stage bar one which was on time. Can't blame them though as the project is massive…
