Pain into the bone experience

published

We get pain into the bone experience with Porter Davis. At contract Stage, they refuse to see me but post the contract back and forth. Haven't complete the job but ask for payment. Handover but didn't send the final Invoice. Mostly unable to contact your coordinator. Experience Pain, Choose them!

Don't put yourself through it!

published

PD were very happy to take our $2,000 deposit - that's when the problems started.

There was zero communication and we were left with no option but to cancel our build and source another builder!

The concierge team are uncontactable and when we were able to contact anyone they simply lied, all the way through to National Sales Manager level!

I wish I'd read the hundreds of genuine negative reviews on facebook groups and review sites!

Pre site stage - good so far

published

We entered construction stage last week. The building coordinator has been good to us. She provided timely updates and responded to our emails promptly. Just before entering the site start, she provided us with a comprehensive checklist of items that need to be completed which was very useful. We had a fairly good experience so far. I would recommend Porter Davis based on that. I also hope that the construction stages go smooth as well - fingers crossed!!

Hi prakm023,
Thanks for the review. It's great to hear of the positive impact your building coordinator had during your pre-site building journey. We wish you all the best during your construction period. Thank you again.
Regards, Porter Davis

Presite and Onsite

published

We are very happy with the presite process, went very smoothly. The staff and building coordinator were very helpful guiding us with the world of style selections. Building coordinator is very knowledgeable and directed us in the right path. we are enjoying the Onsite construction process. The site coordinator managed the tradies very well and we love the workmanship and quality of the build, couldn't ask for more. Finally we felt, we made a right decision to go with Porter Davis

Our dream home

published

The build was very well managed, the workmanship and quality of the build was what we expected from a quality builder of Porter Davis’ stature. There were only minor issues along the way and they were handled professionally and in a timely manner. The house cost about what we first estimated.

Post handover support is horrible

published

We build our first home with porter davis. Its only 6 month old. Post handover support is horrible. No contact from them till date. Even if we call them, they want to end the call ASAP saying do things online. Response on online portel is terrible. isuues reported 5 months ago is still waiting to be resolved. Online portal only marks the requests as either accepted or not accepted. Then there is no response. We doesn't even know who is our post hand over contact.where other builders got a good communication with customers after hand over, so called one of the best in industry scared to answer the post handover issues.

So far good

published

So far good. It could have been better knowing I’m dealing with big brand Porter Davis. Honestly my experience for Pre-site so far is being roller coaster, started very good and smooth with sales, tender, WOS and Contract. After that they took over 3 months to provide us final drawing, it was so stressful noting our final drawing came with few structure mismatches which we never agreed and signed in our contract drawing. I’m glad they all rectified promptly after escalation and we are on construction stage. I am hoping very positive outcome from going forward during our build process.

Great experience so far with Porter Davis

published

We are building our first home and at the fixing stage currently. So far the process was very smooth for us with no hiccups. We had very responsive and excellent sales representative, tender presenter, interior designers and all Building co-ordinators. The most impressive of all is our site supervisor. Our SS is great at communication and happy to rectify all defects that has been picked up by independent inspector.

Great Customer Service, Quality Builders and Responsive!

published

The whole experience from start to finish was great. From the sales staff through to style & design team and then the skilled builder focused on honesty opinions, patience, great communication, close attention to detail and quality sub- contractors.
We were very impressed how they have built our home from initial idea and through a lot of display appointments to reality.
Overall great experience with Porter Davis and certainly will build again with them.

Porter Davis Homes

Hi,
I have chosen liverpool25 plan for my new home and was still working on whether to go with ferndale facade shown on Kew 27 or kingfisher facade. The sales consultant 2 weeks back that I had talked with was not sure about the exterior colours and the bricks used and now it’s lockdown. Would please share is it white or light grey paint on the facade so I can make up my mind and be pre prepared with everything once lockdown is uplifted and waste no further time to start my build please.

Hi Neha, I know it is very difficult to choose facade colour. Our house is Waldorf Grange with Chateau facade. We chose the safe colur used for display house. One advice I can give is to choose new home inspection company to check before handover. The report from our report shows there are more than 80 places required to be fixed. Good luck with your new house.
