Yes we used Darbecca. They call it Final Inspection. They were very detailed and I would recommend them.

No issues at all. The front steps which have no shade at all look exactly the same.
Seems like it is a very high quality product!

Went through a group called Limetree Alfresco. We saw them at the pool and spa expo. Highly recommend them.

Not sure of the exact colour but it was the darkest, most black colour avaliable. It hasn't been sealed yet which will give it a darker shiny look.

Just the normal off white colour. When it is applied it looks dark but it dries white.

You can only get NBN or the estate equivalent. There are no other options. There are no speed restrictions with fibre to the estate.
