That’s the thing- our mortar has failed two tests and does not technically comply with the performance solution.

Hi, one more question. We have requested a new certificate of compliance for the weak mortar and our builder has ignored that so far. Their engineer came out and his report acknowledges some of our issues, and made a few recs to either repoint or render the brickwork, but it does not address the wea...

@AandM Thanks for the update It would have been easier to have the mortar inspected and tested during the brick laying Inspection stage , all could have been rectified then and there, saving you stress and wasted time BTW, the wall will need to be checked against AS3700 Masonry Structures In regard...
I agree. If they had fixed the defects properly when they were first notified we wouldn't still be talking about this 1...

We have been advised to get our mortar tested- the labs I’ve contacted won’t be able to quote until next week. Can anyone advise roughly what this test costs? TIA.

That’s appalling! I would camp out at their head office until they agreed to fix it. Sorry it happened to you. FYI, Metricon refused to rectify this defective, non matching, brickwork. See Pictures https://forum.homeone.com.au/u/76955_1553027947.JPG https://forum.homeone.com.au/u/76955_1553027971.JP...

Thanks all. I remain hopeful they will do the right thing. We paid a lot for our house and it should be to the standards set out in our contract.

@AandM I had a quick look at your previous build posts..... 3 Years Ago? If you posted those photos and sort advice back then you would be been told to have the brickwork inspected and to withhold Brick progress Payment. Unfortunately, it may be too little too late now Thanks.. Unfortunately this w...

A bit of background - we built a double storey home in Melbourne. Our home had many defects, and the build went well beyond contract time. The biggest lingering issue is our brickwork. It was poor quality, and while our builder has worked to fix our bricks over the past year and a bit, none of their...

Just to clarify, we did get our contract plans end of last week, but that was it... complete with 3 errors, and we're still waiting to hear on a late structural change (something we asked for many times pre-PWC but were told it wasn't possible, but we recently viewed another 38 under construction th...

Hi, everyone, As this forum has been so helpful, thought someone might be able to answer these questions - 1. When did you receive your contract prior to contract/colour appointment? 2. For colour appointment, what was helpful to bring? Pictures of styles we like? We have a good idea of what we want...

Thank you everyone for your input! Will definitely look at your blogs and see how you went with the electrical appointment. We're meant to be getting our plans this week in order to prepare for our appointments, but as of Friday our prestart had an incorrect sales sketch for our house which left off...

Hi, everyone, This thread has gone a bit quiet, I hope everyone's planning/building is coming along. We are a few weeks out from our colour/electrical appointments and wondered how many downlights people are putting in, and how many 2-way switches, especially in double storey houses? Any words of wi...
