Got preapproval from the bank and wanted to get in contract ASAP. But house we originally picked won't fit apparently. After all that we has been given only two options of designs! Two!!! Surely on the 800m2 block even with all the boundaries and gentle slop i can pick something we like out of all those designs not just been given something it not even appear to us.?
My Name is Theo. Our bath drain is blocked, called a plumber whom had much difficulty unblocking the block. Drilled a hole through adjacent wall to poke a camera in to see the pipe plumbing. Found a convoluted tube which was used in the plumbing process was kinked , which can only have happened on installation of bath when new. Our plumber advised this problem will continually occur.The house is approx 9 years old, where do we stand in reference to a faulty installation from new? appreciate your reply ?
We were planning to build our first investment property in Geelong with Metricon and went to sales office ( in early 2018). Sales representative was rude ( although he displayed his awards as one of the best sales rep.s) and we felt like we were kicked off when we mentioned our budget. This wasn't what we expected from such a renowned company. We would have stretched our budget a bit and give them a chance if he talked to us nicely and politely considering our needs. However, we then built a nice home with another builder over the expectations.
Then, for the second investment property, we went to Ballarat Metricon sales office (recently-late2019) and unbelievably, same thing happened. The person there didn't even ask us to sit and talked to us ignoring our needs. There was no nice welcome like in many other builders ( this was clearly seen as we went to several different builders). We've been told that they can't beat others prices and no point of wasting their time on this. For the second time, we felt really bad about the company.
Dear Metricon, please try to change your sales representatives attitudes toward customers as this can impact a lot on your sales!
We appreciate you reaching out to share your concerns. The experience you've described is no way what we aim for with customer service and feedback of this nature is taken very seriously. We assure you this will be raised with Sales Management. Should you wish to provide any further information, we are available directly via email@example.com. Thanks again for sharing your feedback.

hi do you rebrick house in glenroy
Thanks for your query, Adele. Being a volume builder, we don't offer custom builds or services. We suggest contacting a local trade for further information regarding rebricking. If you are a Metricon customer and have a query about brickwork, please raise this via My Metricon for your Service & Warranty Coordinator to assist.
Thanks again. Emily
Can you please tell me the Internal wall paint colour and the name of the tile of the Bordeaux In Kellyville Nsw ?
Thank you kindly
Thanks for your query. If you're a current Metricon customer, your assigned representative will be able to assist you further regarding colours and products used in our displays. Alternatively, our suppliers, Dulux Paint and National Tiles would be able to provide more information relating to their products. Thanks again, Emily
Im not a Metricon customer but I managed to track it down its called Corfu marfil. Surely if you are advertising a certain companys tile you could at least give out the name of the tile for them so that company may benefit from it. I find it so silly that you and Metricon even when I called were unwilling to share such a small detail. It is no wonder why we & most are unwilling to work with such a company. Not doing so well with your customers reviews either by the looks of things.
Its so silly, when people already know theyre not going to buy a product, but still think theyre entitled to reap all the benefits/information of a paying customer! They do not have to tell you a paint colour, especially if youre not spending money with them! Its like going into a restaurant, and asking to use the bathroom, when you already know youre not going to buy anything. Im sure youd be doing the same, if it was your own business! * Sigh - People who think theyre entitled! If you want a paint colour, then go to a bloody paint store and stop wasting peoples time!
one of the worst experience with Metricon be careful guys
they promise something different in the beggining but when you pay ur deposite things are totally different ... I lost my 1500 deposit dollares ....
We appreciate you taking the time to make comment. It is usual practice of builders to receive a deposit to proceed with initial works. This would cover preliminary investigations, including soil testing and design works. We would be more than happy to look into your deposit details should you wish and welcome you to contact us directly via firstname.lastname@example.org. Looking forward to hearing from you. Emily
The sales man was very over smart ..he was hiding the things from the beginning..he said different things but the person who was going to make our final contract he said no we cant do that what sales man said ...I cant believe that
I dont know why that sales man did hide those things
When I asked him to return my deposit he said no you have to pay 200 more
Again Im saying it was so bad experience with Metricone
Especially with that sales man
Does anyone know or have contact details for the manger/ head of service and warranty claims at Metricon in Victoria.
Ive had my issue completely dismissed by a staff member in that team and I find it completely unacceptable that no effort or attempts to actually understand or investigate the issue were undertaken. The team member I spoke to was completely dismissive and made no effort to actually understand our circumstances or that fact that every point she made refuting my claims were ridiculous. I would like to escalate further within Metricon before taking the matter straight to Consumer Affairs. I have multiple trades willing to support my case in writing.
Hi Mary, we'd very much like to have a look into the concerns you've raised. If you could contact us at email@example.com with some more detail about the issues mentioned, and either your Metricon Contract Number or full site address, that would be great. We look forward to hearing from you and addressing this further. Emily
Thank you Emily
I have managed to get in contact with the relevant individuals within Metricon and the issue is being investigated.
That's great, thanks Mary. If there is anything we can help with moving forward, please feel free to contact us directly via the email address provided above.

I built my house in 2017. My toilet is not flushing and I don’t know where to go buy the correct valve as I think I need to replace the flush valve.
Any ideas greatly appreciated on an urgent basis.
My attempts to contact the service and warranty team has been unsuccessful with no one returning my call.
Thanks for your question, for any post build related enquiries or service and warranty matters please contact the service and warranty team via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) who will be able to assist further.
The team will endeavor to get back to you within two business days.
I have emailed the above and called the general line many times and left messages as there is no direct line to Service and Warranty Department.
No one got back to me.
I ended up getting a plumber yesterday and spent $340 to get the toilet fixed which I am not happy about.
I also included in my email to Service and Warranty Department that none of my doors are locking - a gust of wind will open all doors including bathroom doors! I have a few other issues as well that I had included in the email to Service and Warranty.
It will be great if someone can get back to me please. My email is
I have recently purchased a Metricon house that has been constructed after knocking down the old property. The vendors have not stayed in this place at all. I can see that the property is NOT registered in the NBN database. NBN has advised me that a separate application has to be put in and it will take nearly 6 months for the application to be processed. Also Telstra have confirmed to me that since this region already has NBN rolled out they can’t provide ADSL or cable broadband to the property and any internet connection can only be provided after NBN registration is completed. They are also surprised that NBN application has not been put by the builder and advised me that nearly all the applications for registration of newly constructed property for NBN is put in by the builder and the builders are advised to do so at least 6 months prior to house hand over. When I tried to do this application on my own I see questions that only a builder can answer (such as, where is the telecommunication conduit planned to be installed?). Please note that this house has already been handed over and I have no idea to such a question. My attempts to contact the service and warranty team has been unsuccessful with no one returning my call. I shall greatly appreciate if you may kindly advise me what I should do. Thanks.
Thanks for getting in touch, please contact your local service and warranty team at email@example.com as all post build requests need to be made in writing.
The team look forward to assisting you further.
My email sent last week still remains unanswered and hence shall I say that a written request has already been placed for your kind information. I have no idea who is the person looking after our property as this was not a place I had built and have only purchased it from the vendors. As doctors it is shocking for us that we will be moving to a Metricon home that will not have an internet connection for 6 months.
Can I terminate and cancel the Preliminary contract with no penalties after I signed it?
Hi Andrew, Thanks for your question. If costs have been incurred on the file including obtaining foundations data for the specific land, then Metricon is entitled to retain the costs associated with this. However, any monies that have not been spent on the file will be refunded. We've sent you a private message so we can check the status of the file for you and advise you further. Many thanks
We have been advised by the Department of Fair Trading that we can lodge a complaint about unfair delays if the delay is past what a 'reasonable person' would accept.
We are building with Metricon (unfortunately), and Metricon has claimed Practical Completion - that is, the construction period has finished (therefore this time no longer counts in our 42 week building period, and no penalties are applying to Metricon for the length of time they take)
At the end of July, 26/7/19, we were told handover would be "a few weeks", but so far it has been 8 weeks and still no keys. No one at Metricon is giving me a clear timeframe of when my house will be handed over, and I have to keep delaying furniture delivery, and other workers arranged to work on our pool etc. Not to mention paying $700 a week rent, with no end in sight.
What do all you out there in Product Review Land consider to be a reasonable timeframe between construction finishing, and us getting our keys? Can anyone share their timeframes so I have a comparison point before I lodge my formal complaint with the Department?
we build a home in clyde north about a year ago. I think the slab leaks as whenevr there is rain the corner of one of the room down staris get wet. what do I do who to call?
Hi James, thanks for your message. Were sorry to read of the concerns your having. For any post-build related inquiries, please contact your local service and warranty team at: ServiceandWarrantyMelbourne@metricon.com.au also, be sure to include any photos or videos that may help assist with the claim. Should there be anything further, please contact our friendly team on 1300 METRICON (1300 638 742). Kind regards
