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.

Uncooperative upper management

published

Front of line sales personal were fantastic however due to a design option being unavailable for 6-8 months we now will not build with them as this is too long to wait. Upper management would not budge on bringing this forward or doing a one off custom variation. Unhappy customer

Good experience for first home build

published

Pre-site stage of the build was good. Our Building Coordinator was knowledgeable and was able to fix issues that we encountered during the sales stage and the design stage (world of style). We could tell that our coordinator had a large volume of work which made communication slow at times.

Pre Site Experience

published

We are happy overall with sales and pre site experience, [name removed] our building coordinator made sure to keep us abreast of proceedings, post contract changes and with our questions and guidance required. She was timely during our loan approval process, design approvals, docs required for private inspections and did the best with patience under tight timelines and at times challenging circumstances.

Our site has now started and [name removed] continues to be helpful in any queries and any requirements. We wish her all the best!

So far so good

published

Porter Davis has the best floor plan, Construction is starting soon. Color selection stage was hard due to time constraint but it all got settled with the help of BC. Got Fisher & Paykel appliances, Boutique doors/windows and Color bond roof as inclusion along with many other. PD is a big firm so they should have some kind of virtual tool to show how the House looks like after doing all the selections especially Kitchen and cabinets. Had to send lots of email to make one correction. Overall i am happy with the PD so far. Hope the future journey to be a smooth..Looking forward to the first stage(slab) of building. Fingers Crossed !!

So far so good. Supportive team and Building Coordinator.

published

We are just entering the construction phase with Porter Davis and are excited for our new home to start being built this week.

After purchasing the property in late 2018, we experienced long delays due to our land settlement. Although the delays caused a lot of stress and uncertainty the Porter Davis Building Coordinators have supported us through the entire process, answering all of our questions and helping resolve any issues we have had.

One of the main reasons for building with Porter Davis was due to their reputation for customer service and quality of their building. So far so good with the customer service and we now look forward to the finished build and getting our new home.

It has been good experience so far (Till Contract singing.).

published

After careful examination of various builders floor plans I have found one with Porter Davis which is of close to my expectations. I haven't had great experience during my colour appointment but I am happy with the sales consultant [name removed] and Building coordinator [name removed]. [name removed] has been of great help in sharing the required information and providing appropriate answers for the questions which i have with out any hesitation. So far it has been good.

Quality product - Reasonable Price

published

Just starting the build now. The process to this point has been good and methodology structured. The time taken was longer than expected and I believe that some of the preparation activities could be done in parallel but are not. As a result we are a number of months behind against my Plan. None the less the final product should be excellent.

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.
