Inept, poor workmanship and cheaters

published

We had our house built by PD with multiple issues throughout and delays not related to COVID but sheer stupidity. On top of that, issues Identified at PCI and handover were not fixed 7 months on. Today, we realized that they had put 2 separate size hot water systems- one small one big while we had paid for 2 big systems. We had always had issues in the bathrooms and thought that was due to the location- figured out now that they had cheated us

Overall good with some rooms for improvements

published

The building coordinator and site supervisor are both very easy to contact. They've been the star player of this process as they went above and beyond to help me. However I cant say the same for the pre-build process as there are times that the process has been frustrating with deadlines coupled with unreachable consultants.

Having said all that, like I said before, the building coordinator is very patient and made sure that I was taken care of so my experience is not bad at all

Smooth process!

published

[Name Removed] was our building coordinator. She went above and beyond her role and advocated for us the whole way. We were treated like real people, not just another build number. Thank you [Name Removed] for making our experience smooth sailing! Highly recommend Porter Davis, especially for first time builders. Ten out of Ten.

Great experience with Porter Davis

published

I have recently moved into a new Porter Davis Townhome and I could not be happier. The Townhome was built as promised and advertised and the service from the site supervisor was excellent. All in all, a job very well done and as many people are shifting to this style of living, I would definitely see what Porter Davis has to offer. When comparing to other builders in this segment, I feel the overall finish and styling was fantastic and superior to their competitors.

Wonderful experience building our first home!!

published

This was our first experience building a house. Porter Davis made the whole process easy, including laying out our options and regular updates during the construction.
There was a decent delay for the settlement but it has been worth the wait!!
The team at Porter Davis did a lovely job designing our townhouse from the floor plan to the facade. We also have some elegant finishes and top end inclusions in our package.
The communication has been quite good throughout the build and especially at and even after settlement.
Of course there have been some minor issues but the site manager has been very active in getting these rectified for us.
Thank you Porter Davis for all your hard work in helping us build our dream home x

We have just received our Building Permit after 3 months of contract signing. It has been a smooth journey so far, thanks to our dedicated & committed BC's [Name Removed] & [Name Removed]. [Name Removed] has been handling our project at the start & she handed over to [Name Removed] mid way but both has been working very much in tandem & we had progressed very well thru the challenges occurred on the way. We are very happy with the PD Homes & this is the 2nd home we are building thru them. [Name Removed] has help us thru the journey to reach finish line to the build stage & is handing over to Site Supervisor. Expecting similar experience through out the build phase.

Lock Up Stage progressing well

published

We just have finished the Frame Stage. There has been hiccups along the way but all good now. Our Project Coordinator Jessie P has been always there to support. She has been excellent in liaising and keeping us updated with the progress of the build. Our Site Supervisor Jarryd is very helpful too.

We are now into the Lock Up Stage and it is progressing well. Looking forward to the next and final phase of the build. We cannot wait to see the finish product and the delivery of a quality workmanship.

Super excited for the succeeding stages. Thank you and all the best PD Family!

Oh Really? your electrician came to do an examination. The electrician told me there should be further check up by PD, but in order to hide it, you guys didn't provide a copy of the report and marked it as completed!

Jessie P was amazing from Porterdavis the whole process of our build! She always answered when we needed her and was super helpful and kind throughout the time dealing with her. You’d be very lucky to get Jessie as part of your build. Thanks again for giving us a great worker.

Less than 8 months after handover, my common bath shower screen falling out from the wall adhesive (causing danger to the shower compartment) and the mirror of my master room ensuite adhesive giving way from top with 1cm gap. Sensor light outside my garage repaired twice but still causing power trip in last storm. Why there is no response after putting up these concerns to New Home Care Team in PD portal?
Is safety after handover can be compromise ?
