There was 2/3 weeks delay due to weather at the start, but everything has been fine since then and it was only last week he told me we would have…

No we didn’t end up getting one for other stages, regrettably now... our shower doors were installed a few weeks ago so thankfully that won’t delay us. This is what…

That’s the way I saw it too, I think they should have it finished to a good standard without needing an independent inspector coming to check the work for them.

Yea we have had no communication, unless we contact him and even them it takes 2 or 3 phone calls before he calls back. I was fine with it for…

Whist snooping around our house the other night, I realised our downpipes were painted and chipped a lot. We paid to have colourbond downpipes so this has obviously been overlooked…

Certainly looks like they didn't care! I would be telling the SS that it all needs to be replaced and not just patched up.

I don’t know that they are anymore expensive than others. Carlisle were a lot more expensive for site costs for us. It all depends on the site and soil reports.
