Outstanding from Start to Finish

published

Porter Davis, from start to finish was an amazing experience. Me and my wife were first home buyers, and we didn't know much. But from Sales, Management and our Handover, we were definitely taken care of and was reassured during the process. Would highly recommend Porter Davis to new homebuyers!

3 years and still have water leaks.

Should have built with Simons. Porter Davis will not come and fix my leaking front veranda.
I made a complaint with an email and the response was nothing.
Don't ever build with porter davis as it will be the biggest mistake you will ever make'
They will make you want to not want to live.

Porter Davis’ sub-standard building

published

PD cant work out why my wall makes creaking noises on windy despite, them making several visits to my home. There doesnt seem to be any solution in sight after enduring this annoying problem for 2 years now. Its a very disappointing outcome to say the least. On top of all that they are taking their time to attend resolve other way overdue issues with the house. Please go with other builders & stay clear of this builder. I has been a very stressful & disappointing experience building with this company from beginning up to now. Forewarned is forearmed.

We love our new home. The process was easy and enjoyable and the people were great to work with

published

The build was well managed from the start to finish. From the sale at the display homes, through the design process at World of Style and the build phase to hand-over was enjoyable. Our building coordinator behind the scenes did a great job.
Our site supervisor was fantastic and we couldn't speak more highly of him. So far the build quality seems amazing and any issues throughout were rectified to ours, and our inspectors, satisfaction.
The final cost was exactly what we were anticipating.

Easy, fast and efficient

published

I'm a first home buyer and I can't fault what I've experienced with Porter Davis so far. I am heading into the construction phase now and everything I've experienced to date with my building coordinator throughout the pre-site stage has been super easy, smooth and a quick process. The communication has been very prompt and helpful and they managed to fit my construction start-date earlier as my land titled much sooner than expected. I've heard some horror stories with other builders and I can't say I've had any issues so far with PD in these early phases, barring a couple of minor hiccups with my estate. From what I've experienced so far - highly recommend.

Poor Workmanship

published

I don't know how people rate PDH houses 4 star. Our house is nearly completed. I can see a lot of defects and workmanship is poor. No communication from site superviser. From independent inspection report, nearly 100 items are required to be fixed. Garage door can'tr close properly, three batten lights over island bench in difference distance, cabinet doors not in line, weid retaining wall etc! Too many issues to mention. I really recommend to hire independent inspector to check before handover!

Porter Davies is a disappointment!

published

Absolutely disgusted, we have had nothing but issues and going onto 2 years in our house and our 3 months walk through is still incomplete. We had to escalate several concerns and made several complaints as being a female I kept getting excuses and would get spoken down too. I went higher up in management and again he has been an absolute disgrace with not rectifying any of our concerns and now ignoring our emails. We are seeking advice and will take Porter Davies to court. Do not build with Porter Davies it has been the worst experience and very stressful experience. Once you have paid them they no longer want to deal with any issues that is within your home from handover! Absolute disgrace

Great Experience with our Building Coordinator

published

We are building our new house with Porter Davis and had a poor experience at the contract stage. [Name Removed] who is our Building coordinator have done everything to turn that experience around. She is exceptionally kind, courteous, transparent and always kept us informed. She answered all our questions in time and made sure that we are always in the loop. Hoping from here on-construction journey goes smoothly as well.

Pre Site Stage

published

We entered construction stage last week. Our building coordinator Jessie has been helpful to us. She provided timely updates and responded to our emails promptly. She is pretty switched on. Our experience has been good so far. I would recommend Porter Davis based on that. I also hope that the construction stages go smooth as well without any hiccups.
