Great from the start if you are building a split level especially-you need to go and talk to them. Have not finished yet but so far its moving fast and looking good. Were mislead and wasted a lot of money with one of the volume builders who had very poor customer service and charged us for things that Oakford did free of charge. Very reputable company and prior to the previous comment have only heard good things. Their standard range that they use is awesome also.
Run on schedule, have a great standard range, good customer service, no pushy sales people and they are knowledgable.
I'd Do It Again
I was recommended Oakford Homes by someone who had built twice previously with them and was very happy, good quality, ongoing support and built ontime were his comments. The sales person at the show homes whom we first spoke to was extremely helpful without being pushy, and put up with me changing my mind 10 times. The selections process was streamline and simple with quality products. The build was stress free, good tradies, there when they said they would be, good quality workmanship and they finished before the due date which saved me some interest payments.No hidden extras and great after sales service with any issues. Happy Me !!
A place to call your home , very welcoming
We first were referred to oakford homes in 2003 after having majour problems with our previous home built with another builder. After speaking with the staff at oakford and being very happy with everything we then continued to build our first home with them. We could not fault any of the staff and there politeness and being more than eager to help , every thing ran smoothly from time of signing contract to completion of our home,we were thrilled with the finished product, any minor things were fixed without any problems at all, They have now on...ly 7 weeks ago completed our 4th home with them, and well i feel i need to say no more as this should speak for it self. 2 of the blocks these houses have been built on had to be cut and filled and yet have had no problems with cracking . I would recommend anybody looking to build a home with a project builder, you could not go past oakford homes. I recommend them 100% . fantastic supervisors and a construction manager that was great to deal with. In just finishing this review i would say a well built and good quality homes and wouldn't hesitate to build with them again. Polite staff, well organised and got the job done, very good contractors Only minor things, to be expected as people are only human
Oakford Homes are the best
A 73 year old lady building a large home on her own? Yes, most people, having heard stories from others, wondered if I could cope with the stress. I began with another building firm and with the continuous increase in prices, being given unreliable information and being treated rudely when I asked questions, I decided to change to Oakfords. The money I lost was worth it. Oakford's staff are friendly, helpful in decision making, they treated me with respect, they took a personal interest in me and knew who I was and where I was building whe...never I called at their office or phoned in. From the time I signed the contract (which was explained in detail to me) to the completion of my home 7 months later, the process was completely stress free. I did not have to pay for many 'upgrades' because their selectons are of high quality standard. I am delighted with my home and my children and grandchildren are enjoying 'their inheritance'. Oakford Homes is recommended by Heather of Strathalbyn the closed contract so I knew in advance how to budget. The finished home was exactly what I wanted.
Absolutely great people and houses
The people from Oakford homes made this a really pleasant and easy experience. The choice was easy from the start after looking at heaps of display homes, Oakfords quality made the choice easy. [name removed] was really helpful and took all the time i need to choose designs and fittings. [names removed] were really helpful in the office with contracts and helping to choose the doors and colours etc. (something we quickly established that i know nothing about). [name removed] was helpful all the way through the project giving me update call...s and making suggestions throughout the process. The build went on time and there was nothing that i could fault when it was complete. [name removed] gave me a run through the houses and asked me to call him if there were any problems. Needless to say i havnt called him since. Nothing but praise for the people and the product.
More than a house, it's my home.
I was determined to buy an old cottage style home in the hills, but could not find anything that quite suited my budget and design preference. I eventually decided to build the cottage design Eastwood (with modifications) with Oakfords. Building can be really stressful but choosing Oakfords was the best decision I made. Even my bank manager endorsed the company, suggesting you'll have no worries with them. She was dead right.
Oakford staff from the beginning were always helpful, knowledgable, and courteous. The price was very reasonable f...or what you get. The actual build went like clock work and was actually built in under 6 months. Friends and locals comment on what a fine looking home I've built. Thanks Oakfords I'm really happy. Style, workmanship, easyliving, functional.
From start to finish everything went according to plan
We first built with Oakford Homes in 2010, two courtyard homes on a subdivided block. From start to finish Oakford’s staff were helpful, friendly, polite and professional. Whilst I’m sure we weren’t the only clients they had to look after at the time, we certainly felt like we were. Even prior to the build starting, they gave us helpful advice about who to see regarding the subdivision and other associated bits of information. The job was finished on time and other than a couple of things that needed to be sorted out at the end (isn’t there...always?), everything went according to plan. We are now on our second build with Oakfords and I’m sure this won’t be the last. helpful, friendly, polite and professional, value for money, quality product
On Schedule, On Budget and very helpful
As a property developer it is critical that my projects are completed on schedule and on budget. I have built 6 spec homes so far with Oakford and all have been successfully completed in a timely and cost effective manner.
Their selections are extensive and their selections staff second to none.
I was also very impressed with ideas and house designs they come up with to suit each individual block of land.
Their trades people are courteous and professional as was their project supervisor who kept me up to date constantly throughout all stages...
Questions & Answers
How can I obtain a ball park price on an Oakford design so that I will have some idea of what I can spend on a block of land..?
First time home builders and we are looking into Oakford homes but the quotes we are getting seem to be a lot cheaper than other companies which seems to worry me slightly. I was wondering if anyone has built with them and could give a rough idea of how much the final cost was compared to the starting quote? we are not looking for fancy high class products as we are young and would rather build within budget and upgrade latter where possible. Any help or advice would be very welcome. Thanks
I wouldn't be too concerned with the price. We found oakford to be exceptional value and having built before understood all the different specs. They're specs are in most cases better than the others for a lot less. I'm not sure why, maybe ask them, but I suspect their margins are smaller and therefore you save.
The quality wasn't compromised either.
I think you will find building with them and very easy process.
