Yep the same thing happened with ours. We also assumed it was so the plumber could access during final fit off. As for the waterproofing, I'm not really sure as…

It worked...3 times lol!

If you pm me your email, I'll forward the one I sent to them. It has pics etc so you can get an idea of what worked for us.

The smaller ones are the standard for wall tiles, but can be used on floors with the levelling clips. Takes more care and time, hence the wxtra charges.

Hi Ryalls, yes we got a refund for the extra laying costs associated with rectified edge tiles. They used normal 3.5mm spacers and no levelling clips instead of 2mm spacers…

Thanks. We have been in for about 5 weeks and have been busy doing bits and pieces. I'll try to take some pics and post them soon. As for all…

We supplied our own sink. The credit for the included sink was about $140. I can't see a charge for cutting the hole for the undercount sink, so they either…

Ours were by letter from head office. Emailed pdf version followed by hard copy in mail. Not sure about what the actual rules are. Maybe your conveyancer can help?

Kitchen benchtops are Caesarstone Raven. Splashback tiles are Mosaic Carrara Bianco Hexagon.
Bathroom wall tiles are Nova Carrara Bianco and floor tiles are Haven charcoal. Grey feature tiles in bathrooms…

Thanks. They didn't, but I never expected it to be 100%. Hopefully they work through the leftovers in the coming weeks.

You'd think we would be busy packing, but not yet. The removalists will do most of our packing, but we still have to do a few bits and pieces around…

Fences are down. Also most looks like a house! We had a win with the tiles. Our SS, to his credit, went to bat for us with head office and…

Depends when PCI is, guess. In my experience the best time to highlight issues is early and often. Pci goes quickly and they get 10 days to rectify the issues…

Had a win. Our SS took our case to head office and they've refunded the extra labour charge for the tiles in full. Very happy with the decision.

This close to moving in I'll settle for a refund of the charges for work not carried out.

Yep. My number 1 piece of advice is assume nothing!

Yep. 2mm on the floor is what you see in all the display homes. It's what we expected when we paid an extra $3000 laying charge (labour only) to have…

Well done on picking up the lack of laundry floor waste included. Wish we did! Good to hear that your build went so well. Are you in Qld? It seems…

Hi. Those tiles will look great when they're finished. Do you know the width of the tile gap you will be having. Did you have to specify?

I feel for you, Ryalls. I directed our objection straight to our cso and she had it reviewed. They agreed that the extension was outside the contract terms and removed…

Hey Ryalls, when were the walls done? We got a letter in may claiming an extension for the walls which were built in January. Our contract states the builder has…

Thanks! We're really happy with just about all our choices...apart from our choice of builder, of course. Can't win 'em all

It is pretty close. Cooker needs to be fitted. I think it's just waiting for the plumber to hook the gas up. Painters need to come back and do around…

Not much new stuff today, but the cleaners have been. Not a proper clean, but much nicer than yesterday.

Splashback tiles are called Mosaic Carrara Bianco Hexagon. Added about $1400, from memory.

Hi all. Just after some info from those who have had rectified tiles done through Coral. Would love to know what the tile gap was with yours. My understanding is…
