Stolen Money

published

I paid over $10,000 for supply of timber in August this year. Vanessa at S E Timber floors Drummoyne has taken that money and NEVER delivered the product . Constant chasing up with phone calls, texts and emails and she keeps promising to refund the money but never does. She has practically stolen my money and is now evading me. I am pursuing the matter further. Do not do business with this person!

Terrible

published

Defective work.
Vanessa is rude.
They stole other material from my property and despite being caught on camera, they denied it.
I have since discovered that all SE Timber shops are similar to deal with.
Cost us a lot of money. I would strongly recommend no body uses this company

we paid a deposit of $9000 for supply and install timber stairs in May this year. Vanessa at S E Timber floors Drummoyne has taken that money and NEVER delivered the product or service. Constant chasing up with phone calls, texts and emails and she keeps promising to refund the money but never does. She has practically stolen my money and is now evading me.

WARNING - STAY AWAY!

published

SE Timber Drummoyne - what a mistake it was dealing with this business. They left us with flooring which is defective, scammed us by charging us for floor levelling which is NOT level, leaving sections of our floor which are bouncy. Did not properly lay flooring in some sections which left us with excessive creaking/cracking sounds, did not utilise expansion joints as required and despite making repeated assurances to come back and make good on all the defects, did not bother showing up or committing. The delays throughout the installation process meant that we were charged additional costs by my home builder. A terrible and stressful experience.

Terrible, unreliable, Shoddy work

published

SE timber was a nightmare to deal with. The contractors were unskilled and did not finish the job properly. Whole sections had to be pulled up multiple times because they were so bad. The took out cabinetry that they broke and did not fix. There is still unfinished work where they failed to complete, despite promises from the owner that he would arrange someone to complete the seals and fix defects. Awful experience.

WARNING DANGER !
Never in my 15 years in construction have I worked with a contractor less reliable and with such poor workmanship. They never achieved dates and timbers are lifting.

Warning - Stay Away !!

SE TIMBER - WARNING DANGER

In my 15 years in the construction industry I have never dealt with a less reliable Contractor. SE Timber delayed the project months and the workmanship was very poor. Straight after installation the timbers started moving.

After they replaced the timbers that initially moved they did not sand or seal the repair. Since the repair over half the floor is defective with creaking and movement. SE Timber tried to repair the work however it has become worse. Strongly recommend do not use SE Timber.

I will be starting legal proceeding to have an alternative repairer fix the problem. This has been very stressful. Avoid at all costs!!

Terrible service, refuse to fix their problem

published

I had a laminate floor laid in November 2019. Immediately there were problems. Numerous emails and telephone calls from me and office of Fair Trading to SE Timber. Now in Feb. I have had to lodge a claim with NCAT for SE Timber to fix my floors. Awaiting a tribunal date to present my case. Numerous contractors have come and gone. The last one ripped all the floor boards up, left them in the middle of the living room and said they will have to stat again. Over two weeks ago. Yet the office doesn’t return calls or emails. Very, very disappointing.

Save yourself the extreme stress and frustration

published

By far the worst service I have ever received in my life. Save yourself a lot of pain and time and go elsewhere. How they’re still in business I don’t know.

The end result is good - floor looks nice. Installation on the other hand was a total nightmare. Communication nonexistent, and I spent DAYS at home waiting for people to show up who simply didn’t, and no one would respond to any kind of contact from me, be it phone, text or email. Extremely frustrating process.

Hang On To Your Deposit!

published

Retailer attends without notice on the first occasion demanding to be let into the house to measure up. Sent away and comes back the following week at an agreed time, measures up and sends a quote requiring 50% deposit. Quote agreed to, deposit paid, then they advise they can't do the job due to factory limitations, and sought our advice as to proceeding or otherwise. We advise no - refund the deposit. Needless to say the job is now with Fair Trading as the deposit isn't coming back and we are $10K out of pocket. Avoid like the plague.

It looks fabulous and feels great to walk on.

SE Timbers did a marvellous job from helping us to select the right product to disposing of the old floor and laying the new one. It upgraded the look of the apartment significantly.

The lady in Drumoyne called Vanesssa is the biggest liar and waste of space. Unreliable, liar, do not bother. These guys should close their business. Twice left me high and dry and cant even keep an appointment in her calendar.

Dreadful Service - SE Timber Drummoyne

WORST service I have ever seen!

published

After the owner came out to assess the job i was assured it would take 3 days. I went overseas and gave them 10 days to complete the job - and come home to half a floor. During the following week I had repeated promises of when it would be finished, all of which turned out to be lies and incorrect. Now, 6 months later I am STILL waiting for them the finish the last parts. The owner came back out again a month ago to assess the outstanding work to be done, promised he would get it fixed, said maybe even that same day - a month later nothing has happened, and my emails and calls to schedule the last work goes unanswered. Worst customer service I have ever experienced! Do NOT use this company!
