Yes exactly. That is what it is

We have actually finished building. There is no footpath and the measurements are from the curb back. That’s where our pegs were set out.

Hi all, might be a silly question but thought best to ask. We bought a small block of land 18mx25m (450sqm) in a new estate. Those boundary measurements are outlined…

Builder stuffed up - irreversible mistake - what can we do?

Thanks that was one of our options. Unfortunately way to exxy for us to have to fork out

We are taking the concrete as is with some upgrades. I will have to live with it. If I hate it that much after handover we will tile at our…

You could ask them to do an area which will be covered by something? Then sign off on that? If you’re not happy then you can look at other options.

Not necessarily. In nsw we have free government agencies to assist in this type of thing

I don’t think this information is correct. If your builder lays the wrong tiles or lays them crooked, they’re responsible for ripping them up and relaying them. Same goes if…

I agree with you. What quality assurance you would you have suggested? We tried to find out the exact time the floors were going to be done so we could…

Thanks! The tiles that will meet what was supposed to be the intended finish may not be cheap...that's their bill though right?

Thanks for your reply. They can't pour a thin layer over the top because of something about it not binding with the existing slab and shifting. They also can't repolish…
