Disappointed

published

Very poor quality. wouldn't recommend at all. Beware don't build with them. From the beginning to the end was an absolute joke. Very over priced as they use poor quality products throughout the house. Had to also get house re painted before moving in as was that bad. Save yourself the pain and stay away

“Our family building for your family” - Biggest lie

published

Poor communication. Some of the emails we received were so unprofessional.
Nothing was done in a timely manner and the house was not complete at handover. No one has followed up on any handover items or the 3 month review in the 8 months we have lived here. Tony is horrendous as a supervisor and is still causing issues through the build of our neighbours house which has damaged our fence.
For a company we were paying 500k to, we definitely did not feel it.

Terrible builder poor workmanship poor management poor communication

published

After three year build process which was a headache from the start. Promised so much but got so little. no communication what so ever. felt like an owner builder poor workmanship and poor professionalism
Terrible salesman terrible site manager
Refusing to come back and fix problems (lots) not just little problems
Regret building with this builder have built for homes previous with other builders with no problems.

Dechellis Responsive and Profesional Builders

published

This project was the 2nd time I have built a new home, but the first time I've used Dechellis Homes as the builder. The reason for choosing Dechellis was as much as anything else the quick response times we received from the sales person we dealt with.
All dealings with Dechellis were very professional and efficient and the end result was an excellent home built very efficiently and without any problems.
Our site building manager (David) was very easy to deal with. He always answered my phone calls and he always delivered the things he said he would do, when he would do them.
I would recommend building a new home with Dechellis Homes and I will probably build with them again in the future.

Very professional, high quality and personalized service.

published

From day one building of our house with Dichellis we had high level of confidence. Visited lots of home displays and decision was actually very easy.Great designs and striking quality were very hard to match by other builders. Building process were prompt. Had change of site manager but it did not disrupt project. As a matter of fact everything went even better. Customer service and support during building was very good. On handover there was a couple of minor faults which were adressed very proptly with no hesitation. Would deffinately build with them again. Well done Dechellis Homes

I wrote poor workmanship and Communication in 2012 and it has been changed and edited by PRODUCT REVIEW because it was pressured by DECHELLIS HOMES to do so.......

Not of to a good start

published

Haven't signed contracts yet been given run around for past 10 months and still waiting for final contract price ,it's like they are doing us a favor by building for us. Very poor service and Communication from sales man seems we are always chasing him. We told him from day one we are renting and costing money and we need to start building asap but here we are 10 months later, i agree With the previous comments of dechellis being up themselves we are on the verge of going with another builder which means we loose $2000.
Great display homes

Has anyone built a Dechellis Wild Orchid Home- because the dropped ceiling in my kitchen area has dropped by 17mm and in my opinion has caused the main ceiling to crack under the strain of being poorly constructed when built.

Not much from what we can tell. We are going through selections at the moment and it looks like higher ceilings and taller doors is about the only difference.

Hi Jodie

Thanks for your question.

Dechellis Homes are a builder that allows our clients to either modify a existing plan or create a custom design to meet their needs. We also provide our clients with a wide range of choices for selections.

Typically we allow approx.. 3-4 months for preliminary/contract works and then approx. 6 months for construction however please note these time frames depend on a number of factors such as location, single/double storey, size, council approvals, finance, site works, Christmas break etc..

If you would like more information on this or if you have a design in mind please contact our head office on 8362 7427 and we can certainly assist you further.

Kind Regards
Dechellis Homes

Judging by all the bad feedback I am very reluctant to build with these guys, their display homes are great but I don't have the time or patience dealing with the aftermath once we move in. it is also disappointing that they have the reputation of being shonky and have very bad workmanship. Disappointed really.

It took us 18 months to get to contract stage, they were slow at just about everthing and always seems to put the delays on someone else other than themselves. So we eventually signed a contract but when it came for the bosses to sign it off they then slugged us an extra $19K on our contract price. So they said pay the extra charge or lose the contract. Basically they held us to ransom to either pay or they wont continue with the build. We decided not to continue with this unethical mob. Decided to go with a much more professional builder, and this so far has been absolutely brilliant dealing with a much more professional builder. Just watch for those discounts and free air conditioners offers, remenber nothing is free, they get there money back from you some how. Be carefull choosing this builder. Good luck
