Hi Phoenix,
I guess it would depend on what you want to change, I know people who have changed the amount that PD pay them if they go over schedule.

A Metricon sales consultant told me they overcharge for site costs and go above and beyond what's actually required because of all the bad press they have had.

For those of you in the process or finished building and have used an independent building inspector. Did you receive reports at each stage from the PD appointed inspector at…

We are also planning to use Darbeca. Just curious did your 'independent inspector' appointed by PD send you reports at each stage? And if so how did they compare to…

Porter Davis Upgrades and Costs

I'm pretty sure you can have anything from national tiles but the cost is a lot more per sq metre that the price at nation tiles.

Interesting you haven't heard anything from PD's inspector. I assumed they would be sending you a report at each stage, same as Darbeca.

All going well it shouldn't take to long. Let us know how it goes :) Good luck.

It was very straight forward for us, took less than 2 hours. Is there any reason your costs may have changed?
