We would NOT recommend
Our build was not managed in a professional way
The build workmanship was very poor. Due to the lack of supervision.The matrix board was NOT to James Hardie specIfications. We have a main bedroom door that will not shut
We have a rubbish pile not removed after 4 months.
Plaster on windows , paint on concrete , concrete on fence. Rust on tiles.
Our builder thinks that filling up a gap near the roof with silicone (that happened after the Matrix board Sprung out ) is acceptable on a $800,000 home.
These are just some examples of many more problems we had.
Forget it / don't do it/ dodgy work ethics, do not trust
I take writing a bad review very seriously, our lives have been a nightmare. Work was performed without our knowledge or consent, contract was not followed, we did not sign variation forms for the work that we did not know about. Locked out by [name removed]. Waiting for a hearing.

We live in Melbourne while our house in Hervey Bay QLD was being built, all communications with our builder Tony were by phone and email. Tony promptly responded to all communications and provided regular updates with photos. His professionalism coupled with openness, honesty and friendly manner gave us confidence that the build was in safe hands. He was forthcoming with discussing any issues along the way and was eager to resolve them in the most cost effective way. We are very happy with the quality of the finished product. Tony is a first-rate builder and we would highly recommend him to anyone.

Glad to hear you had good build. I have corresponded with a few that felt like us.
Very disappointed and Disillusioned .
Dyma who was the office assistant that helped you with your build. I find it hard to believe you had no problems. Most of his recent builds have. One of his 5 star ratings was put up by A Office Assistant. Very unethical.
Have you started building in Melbourne?We are planning to have double story home in Keilor East and planning to have custom built due to shape of the lot.Do you do custom build?......Asif
