Hi, We built with PD prestige and must admit am really happy with the product BUT would highly recommend letting them just do the wet areas as per contract and after handover get your own guys to do carpet tiles floorboards etc. I saved around $10K doing this!! :z: :z: :z: Plus builders ranges are n...

Hi all Has anyone who has built with PD upgrade the termite system to include the reticulation piping that you can add on after handover. I am deciding whether or not to do this as the current spray system PD supply will not work in the concreted areas IE: Driveway and they have recommended I contac...

Vanderlay I wish I knew about this pipe treatment as my house is past fixing and it woud be to late to get this piping system wouldnt it as it would need to run under the slab. PD never gave me any options for termite protection just to say they do a full termite protection so I assumed this would b...

vanderlay Thanks for that. Did you get to specify company or do they just connect to the one they usually use and then you can transfer later if you want?

Hi Guys Does anyone know if PD arrange for the installation of the gas metre prior to your PC Inspection as I would need gas on to test things like heating. Do I just need to transfer gas into my name on completion date or do I need to arrange for the whole gas metre installation. I am unsure as I h...

Ideally we would all love it under the kitcken cabinets and skirtings but the builders dont seem to allow it. If you can convince your site supervisor to let you do it that would be great but I did not want to risk this and be left with a tiny skirting board. This is why I decided to upgrade (Only a...

upgrade to 92mm skirtings. It is the easiest and cheapest way. It will be extremly hard to avoid using quad with volume builders as they are not very flexible about th skirts. Even PD display homes have the quad so even if you went through the builder you would have to specify that you did not want ...

Has anyway experienced oxidatisation stains (rust stains) on their bricks and mortar. My brickwork was completed a while back and about fourweeks after bricks have been cleaned this rust like stain is appearing on some of the bricks and off white mortar. I have a brick from Austral called La Trobe. ...

Hi all Should you be able to smell the sewage from the breather pipe of the house when I stand outside. My sinks toilets, baths, showers, basins etc are not in as yet but I would have thought this smell would not be around as I have not smelt it in other houses under consturction. Should I be concer...

I would have not taken the home and not accepted the roof tiles being re-sprayed. If they are faulty tiles then they must be replaced with the correct tiles. We are all paying for new homes and new tiles (in the correct colour) is not too much to expect. :D

Hi guys Do I need to pay a progress payment for the lockup stage if all work is not carried out properly but they have sent a bill. IE: All work is complete to that stage but some issues need to be rectified as a result of my building inspection. HIA contract says you can be charged interest if you ...

I am at pre plaster stage or will be next week and was wondering if people think I need an inspection at this point. I was going to get Kevin at pre handover but was wondering if I should engage him for this stage. It seems most of the issues can still be rectified prior to completion with a little ...

Go to house on a sunny day before pre handover inspection and note it all down. Then riase the concerns. You will get broken glass, heaps more scratches etc before the end of the process so dont stress. Building Code does say that scracthes on glass is a defect so they have to fix them but once hand...

They will not replace the windows they will use enamel touch up paint. It happens all the time. When I last built I found over forty scracthes inside and out and after they touched them up you could not tell the diffrence. You should go through each window and write down scracthes. In the end the wi...
