Awesome House

5 out of 5, reviewed on Mar 13, 2018

10/10 for our site manager. He was always helpful with any issues or queries we had. Always rang every week with an update of progress.
Office staff were pretty average but eventually got everything sorted
Our sales consultant was awesome also. She was very accommodating and always happy to help us during the first stages of deciding to purchase our house and the extras we wanted to add on

Dishonest and Unapologetic

1 out of 5, reviewed on Mar 13, 2018

Metricon said yes to our requirements to get us to put the deposit in. Once we signed up we were told their commitments were a bunch of 'miscommunication' and would not be fulfilled. Then they told us you either compromise or lose your deposit.
We were lied to repeatedly and Metricon is quite unapologetic about it.
We are building our first home, so maybe we aren't as familiar with the way these things work, but we really thought Metricon was better than this. This was barely the beginning of the journey, and even though we lost our deposit, it is better to have lost a couple of grand then to risk several hundred.

Overall great experience with Metricon and Best Sales Manager

5 out of 5, reviewed on Mar 12, 2018

We built with Metricon Homes at North Kellyville.

My husband and I are very young couple, we don't have any experience in building house. We are very happy to choose Metricon Homes and our sales manager [Name Removed] to help us finish the first house in our life.

Our house have settled by the eve of Christmas last year. Now, it has moved to warrantee part.
We’ve done our house inspection with a professional Independent Building inspector recently. He gave 9 out of 10 in regarding to the quality. Our inspector would like to choose Metricon due the cost effective and overall quality and service Metricon could offer.
 
Special thanks to Metricon Homes Sales Manager [name removed] who has helped us to select our land at North Kellyville in 2016. He and his assistant [name removed] gave us very professional services and advices about our new home in our first language Mandarin Chinese from tender request to contract signing. The construction time of this house is around 1 year, in this period, my sales help me to negotiate with my site manager once we found some issues or defects on the house.
In the last stage, I am looking forward Metricon could fix all defects in the report from third part inspection for us ASAP.
We will recommend Metricon to our friends and probably build with Metricon again in the near future if we could find another block. 
Thank you Metricon for a wonderful first home building experience, we hope the warranty fixing period could go smoothly.

Terrible Costumer Service and Sales Representative.

2 out of 5, reviewed on Mar 12, 2018

At first we though we are good to build with Metricon. It sounds promising. We supposed to be signing our contract next week. We been through all the changes we want including color scheme and back and fort correspondence -- confusion back and fort too due to the change of Sales Coordinator. Our base price that supposed to be locked for 12 months was increased because the first Sale Consultant left and didnt submit the document to locked it - even if we paid the money to fixed it. Delays due to Sales Rep giving us options of facade that was not fit to our lot or layout that was not compliant to what we already requested and so many times, credit that we supposed to give us due to changing carpet to timber flooring, reduce size of outdoor/dining etc. The supposed to be "fixed site" cost that we signed during the locked price was increased, due to "Slab upgrade due to the existing fill on site that we not counted for the initial fixed site cost estimate". The Standard slab is M but teh fixed site cost supposed to be increased only if Soil Test result to be E or S and need change slab accordingly. Our soil test is H, which is common to Western Suburb areas.
They don't want to give the credit, blaming us for the confusion and correction of the layout that we already requested that didn't reflected on their layouts and wants to charge extra for the site cost before the contract signing when we already got our finances sorted and the Contract price they want us to sign is above our maximum capacity.

We considering to find other builder now. We dont want further stress.

The build was surprisingly the least stressful part! The build was well managed our building manager was amazing! I give him a 5star rating! He was approachable, kept me up to date and very accommodating. the build went quickly and smoothly which was fantastic. The quality of the finish is good.
Customer service pre build was very stressful!! Very little customer service once we had signed for the build. This part was very disappointing..
Final product I’m very pleased with and very happy :)

This review is for the Building Supervisor. Not for customer service people

5 out of 5, reviewed on Mar 09, 2018

workmanship & build quality was good. All minor repair items identified at Customer Presentation were rectified by handover.
[Name Removed] managed the build exceptionally well. Great communication and prompt response to all queries. Everything was delivered as promised and approx. on time. Cannot fault [Name Removed] on any part of the build / handover experience.
Customer service and support was very average. Staff were not interested in seeing things from my point of view or going the extra mile to assist me. One example, when I paid extra for downlights the plans were changed from my original siting of the lights in the kitchen because they would interfere with the cupboards. I patiently explained I had not ordered cupboards. Still the plans were changed to accommodate the person doing the re-drawing. In the end I simply gave up because this issue was holding up the works. I went with the downlights in the position that the person wanted!!! Despite my issues with the customer service team (and I had many), I was grateful that the salesperson, [Name Removed] and the building supervisor, [Name Removed] were excellent at the start of my build and the end. I worked around the very ordinary service from the middle people.

Excellent '5 Star' Site Supervisor [name removed]

5 out of 5, reviewed on Mar 09, 2018

We started our process with a really good new home consultant [name removed] who helped and guided us through the first stages of choosing our home and finding the block we wanted. Then we moved onto the next stage of dealing with so many different people in the office which turned out to be an nightmare. By the time we finally made on site we were ready for more drama.
Well we were in for a surprise. We found our site supervisor [name removed] fantastic. Not only is he professional he also knows what he is talking about. Nothing was too much trouble, he sorted out any concerns we may have had and provided regular updates. [name removed] went over and above all expectations we had going into this build and now we are finally in our new home. Well done [name removed] these '5 stars' are for your hard work you put into our build. Thank you.

Great experience with the construction stage

5 out of 5, reviewed on Mar 08, 2018

The build was very well managed and completed much sooner than expected. The site manager [name removed] has been great. He kept me updated every step of the way, with calls every week and organized multiple visits for me at different stages of the build so that I could see the progress. He also explained everything in great detail to me, things that I would normally know nothing about but the information helped me understand everything better.

There were a few hiccups with the pre-construction stages with Metricon but they have made up for it by organizing the construction to complete ahead of schedule.

So, I would like to thank specifically the site manager [name removed] and the Building Support Coordinator [name removed] for their great service and making me feel that my satisfaction mattered to them and they cared enough that I had a good experience.

Simple Design Great Supervisor

5 out of 5, reviewed on Mar 08, 2018

There was a bit of delay from pre-construction process but as soon as it was handed out to the construction team, they hit the ground running, the house was completed within 18 weeks (including holiday break). [name removed], our site supervisor was really knowledgeable, friendly and helpful, we received a weekly call or text or email (if you prefer) for updates on the progress and attended several site visits. He made the whole building a new home process almost stress-free. Despite some minor (cosmetics issues), we are really happy with the final product. We had really great experience and cannot thank [name removed] enough for looking after the construction stage to completion.

very poor quality of drive way

1 out of 5, reviewed on Mar 07, 2018

It was the worst decision that we had 2 townhouses built by Metricon! The finish of the building was rough and the drive way has many very deep cracks. We have been requesting them to fix the problem but was told to Waite until their inspector comes in June. After 3 months and the inspector came and checked every thing taking many photos, he agreed it was the concrete problem and he will

would report to Metricon but never getting back until we contacted several times then we were told " it is within the quality tolerance and we can find an independent inspector and provide a report but at our cost, which they know it may be more then we fix it by our self. They are a large company and they know we can't afford to do it so they take the advantage!

Building a home made easy

4 out of 5, reviewed on Mar 07, 2018

Building overall was as planned fairly easy. The final results very happy. There were a few issues with communication and things not explained appropriately. e.g internet connection which created a few headaches and no connection for washing machine. It was great to get phone calls from supervisor advising of stages of building and photos were exciting. It was a bit scary when smoke alarms went off several times but supervisor said faulty and new ones quickly replaced. Thank you Metricon and no doubt good support if needed from here. People love our house and so do we .

Efficient Supervisor

5 out of 5, reviewed on Mar 06, 2018

The process with Metricon was very smooth. Always received text massage from our supervisor [Name Removed] about the progress of the build. He has made the whole process easy and worries-free.
The final result of the home building was close to perfect. We engaged an independent building assessor to review the final touch of the house and there are only handful of minor amendments that needed to be made.
We will definitely engage Metricon again for the next job.

Love where you live!

5 out of 5, reviewed on Mar 05, 2018

Can’t find words to describe our great experience with Metricon everything is positive 

It’s our first home build here in Australia so we can say we have little or no knowledge at all on how build process works in Adelaide. However, from the first day we approached Metricon, the person we have dealt with ([name removed]) was above our expectations.

[name removed] really helped us finding suitable block size with home design we have chosen in the beginning until we landed on the land and location perfect for the home we wanted. Colour and façade selection is stressing for most but Metricon ensure customers will have a beautiful combinations as final product.

When we reached council approvals I thought this was difficult either, but [Name Removed] made this a breeze a process, constant follow-ups were made to ensure we are right on track!

And now for the build process, our Site Manager ([name removed]) was very excellent, he has great attention to details. He is always available whenever we have questions or concerns during the build. He also spends time on sending us text message for progress and will take place on the build which is really great to know what has been done and things to be completed in the next following days, which made me and wife always excited every week 

During the inspection, I would say our Site Manager did an outstanding job on making presentation and inspection at the same time, he has great attention to details even small scratches which needs to be repainted are spot on, this kind of things we as owner may not see this instantly.

The handover was also pretty smooth, all paperworks, keys, warranties are laid to us and organised on a single binder (very neat!). At the end of day, our Site Manager told us that he can be still be instantly contacted if there are concerns or fixes needs to be done.

Been living on the new built house for almost a month and now as we are definitely loving it, we had couple of friends visited us already and envied with the superior build quality of Metricon which we have referred to Metricon too.

Overall, I can prove that quote “love where you live” is true, we are all excited to go home after work and just spend day at home during weekend. I highly recommend building with Metricon, beautiful home, stress free and friendly and professional staff!

Cheers

The process with Metricon at the beginning was a bit tedious, but as soon as the build started there was a huge relief. Our supervisor made the whole experience for us, all that much more enjoyable. He was completely on the ball and ensured everything was done to perfect standards. We would recommend Metricon solely on the supervisor we had. We couldn't recommend him enough! There are a few bits and pieces still incomplete but hoping these will be fixed very shortly.
