I never actually noticed mine until this post! Ours is just a plain rectangular skirting so not prominent. I don't recall having selected it specifically, but we did generally go…

Our old SS had 35 but got it down to a manageable low 20's a couple of weeks back prior to handing over to the new guy (not sure if…

Sevenths - our new SS (who started a month ago to replace our old SS) is going to take on most of your SS's jobs. He's a great guy and…

Pommie, timeline depends on where you are building as the issue is not masterton per se but availability of the trades people that they use (and they don't have enough).…

Has anyone had a 4 piece bifold installed? How well is it working for you? Our 2 sets are shockingly poor quality. Joints, handles, locks rusting badly, doors not smooth…

I don't think they care too much about liquidated damages. It's "only" $50 a day.
There is no real timeline for handover after PCI. The timeline might be more about…

Yep, they said they just introduced it as the gift Nd we were one of the first 2 weeks back. Quite a nice set - heavy and nicely weighted

There is a full price vs incremental price over the existing items (which they credit you with). $3253 might be full price if you're not replacing anything. We got 2x…

Congrats Gibson. Did you get a walk through with the SS recently (to list out defects) or is PCI it?

Izee - we used site demolition as they were linked to Masterton and were priced competitively. They did a good job. We had a lot of problems with them but…

Izee, it's standard. Damage is inevitable due to tip trucks, digging for gas lines. I think you're meant to rectify it when you do your driveway. We had to pay…

Looks great Martin's harmony. I vote for the stain - the colour of the current edges looks really good!

Even funnier, the SS told us today he hasn't spotted the painter for a while and he might need to get a new one if this one doesn't reappear.
Hilarious,…

If the painter is still lurking around, pay him a bit extra for another coat. We have tailwind and it varies from green to a nice off white depending on…
