New but incomplete

published

I have built 2 home with Porter Davis over the last 18 months. The first home we built was in the Access range and I could not believe how trouble free it was, which in turn helped in our decision to build again. The second experience was totally different in all aspects, from choosing colors through to completion. The communication was almost nonexistent, the only time I heard from anyone was me chasing them for answers. We did have a turn around when another site supervisor was allocated and the pace picked up. We have now been in our house for around 4 weeks and we still do not have toilet roll holders shower rail a toilet that does not flush. We have items that need repair that were pointed out at least six weeks ago.

Building a dual oc

published

We are going through the first stages of building a duplex at the moment and now leading up to the fixed price contract stage, we have found communication very slow with our building coordinator.

We were sold by the floor plans and great sales experience at the start. Although we had some set backs due to health reasons, at the start everything went very smoothly, from getting the preliminary report to selecting the colours/fittings in order to signing off at the tender stage. However, communication has not been great since and it is very hard to get hold of our building coordinator to get an idea of when our start date will be, when we need to make final changes by etc.

Will provide another review once building has been completed.

Good start bad finish

published

The build from start was great. Supervisor helpful but since handover things have gone wrong. Our fridge space was wrong and fridge won't fit. Cooktop is too close to splash back and can't use rear burners. But it's the lack of communication now after handover that raises concerns. We have moved in without being able to use cooktop or fridge

I was happy with the overall result of the house. Of course there were a few hiccups during the whole build but that is to be expected with any major builds. I thought the building coordinator and site supervisor were trying to do the best job they could, and i appreciate the work they put in. It would have been great to get more support from Porter Davis as they promised a website that would track every move of the house which only worked for 2 weeks at the beginning of the build. I also had an issue with the heating system, where I paid for 2 zones and virtually received 1 zone. But like I said, Im happy with the end product.
the house finished on time
not much support

Customer service, post move in woeful

published

Had our 12 month inspection where identified a leak in the elfresco roof, paint peeling ect, they came through and "fixed" however they stated there was no leak but due to our location the paint peeling was a regular occurrence, they promised the work the did fixed the issue, 18 mths later we have the same issue, they now won't return phone calls, and we are still waiting on a few issues from initial list to be rectified, terrible!
Floor plan suited our needs
Customer service,follow up woeful from outset, over promised and under delivered, for the prices they charge they are sub standard in customer care

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.
