Thank you SJD Team

published

Sjd homes did a great job managing our build during the Covid period
Though it took longer than initially anticipated to start the job , the actual building process was smooth and very well managed by the friendly approachable Site Manager James who sent us photos and kept us posted and went above and beyond to allow access for inspections at convenient times when requested .
The initial plan was also modified by the Sales Consultant Doreen to suit our requirements for having a 4 bedroom home on a smaller block
The finer finishing details before the handover was done with minute attention to detail by Site Supervisor
Overall a seamless experience

Home built to suit my family

published

SJD were great I can not speak highly enough about our site manager A1 service and fantastic to work with . We had a few miner hiccups through out our build due to miscommunication from sales but he was onto it straight away and made us feel very reassured and at ease & everything turned out perfectly very highly recommended site manager⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Workmanship was good just a few miner issues to be reviewed. Our final cost was spot on , no hidden extras. I would definitely recommend SJD but I would advise to talk to your site manager with all things discussed at sales . Thank you SJD we love our new home .

My forever home by SJD Homes

Happy with the end result, excellent supervision team

published

SJD's site supervisor Kim was outstanding,
Quality of the build was excellent, SJD would have received a five star rating however their Plumbers let them down. It took the plumbing team 5 attempts to eventually get downpipes fitted, on top of other minor issues. Down pipes are a major component to our build as we are on tank water. If we could rate the plumbers and their workmanship alone it would be one star.
However Kim fixed the plumbing issue professionally and we are now happy with the result
I would recommend SJD to build you new home

Overall happy with the builder, Painting could have done better.

published

Professional staff, lovely working with SJD, Colour selection staff was also very patient. Building is of good quality but still like any house you need to supervise them.

I’m giving 5 star to Design & Sales team, Site supervisor and Tiler, 3 star to Bricking, Painting and Insulation(rating Just for wrap, I still haven’t checked the roof cavity), 4 star to Cabinetmaker, Electrician ( could have installed better LED globes, it’s useless) Plumber and all other trades.

Just finished final inspection so can’t really comment about handover and after care, however SS promised all the issues will be fixed before handover. So far satisfied with the house.

SJD Homes Overall Very Happy

published

This is the second home that we have built with SJD and would highly recommend them. In our experience they have been very accommodating during the design phase to ensure our needs were met. We were impressed with Neville during our initial consultation to design the house.

Part way through the build we were allocated a new building supervisor, being Kim. We could not speak highly enough of Kim. The level of service and care he has shown us has been exceptional. Kim is 5 out of 5 stars in our opinion :)

Hi, just wondering whether the SJD will change the size of the building to our choice. I like one display house it's 33 squares fits lot size 16x32. But I have 16x28 lot. So want to know whether they can change the size. Thanks

You will be surprised at what they can do, and they’re pretty good with adjusting and customising to your needs. Our house was made a little bigger than off the plan. Good luck!

Kinz L.asked

Hi,
Im in WA. Do you guys only build house or also help with the purchase of land? I am a first home buyer, Wondering if I have to purchase the land separately and hire a builder to build my house or both can be done together by the builder? Also with the land, can I choose my own or does it have to be the ones offered by the builder? Also the whole interiors and material that goes into the house can be freely chosen by the client or need to stick to options offered by builder? I really don't like the modern Australian homes I come across everyday, I want my house to have more stones and woods included and less glasses and steels that makes the house cheap and unnatural and tacky. I am dreaming of a small two storey house. Thank you.

Hi Kinz, if you are looking to build in WA, I'm sorry, we cannot help you. We only build in the SE suburbs of Melbourne.

I don't know mate, but we had to, because we are close to their outer boundaries. Try Leigh Shoebridge from sales, he has a simple sheet that tells you exactly what the premiums are, if there's any at all...good luck

Yes SJD have metropolitan, region 1 and region 2 pricing, Corinella is Region1 (that’s where we built) I think Wonthaggi fell into Region 2.. I did play around on their website and the pricing with regions was on there in 2018 we then met with Leigh Shoebridge went over the plans, elevations, pricing etc. He is very thorough and patient. Our build went quite smoothly, not overly impressed with the plumber though (has attitude and won’t admit fault - little like Dan Andrews). Build completed inside of time frames & no price shock. Customer Service and site supervisor “great”.. all the best
