Hello! Just wondering if anyone could help me....
We've just built a new home with Carlisle, and recently had their 90 day warranty inspection. We have since been told that we our 25 year structural guarantee that they offer is void because we have failed to do several landscaping things, including install concrete around the perimeter of the home.
I believe we will still be covered under the general 10 year building warranty that everyone is covered by in Victoria, so haven't been overly worried about not meeting Carlisle's requirements, as they are quite extreme - we don't want a concrete moat around our entire home. Indeed I doubt very few people would do this. Just wanting to get people's opinions on builder's warranties and whether people are following their strict requirements in order to keep them. Cheers

Mandi I suggest you follow the Geotech & Engineering requirements
Unless you want to void your warranties. Goodluck

With your waffle slab it is absolutely vital that you protect uneven moisture conditions around your slab and excessive water or risk the very real probability of slab heave,only someone who loves Russian roulette would not do so,you will regret it if not done, almost a guarantee.

You can use builders plastic sloping away from your house and then place landscaping materials etc over the top including pavers.
It has to be done properly to be effect in protecting your house.What area are you in ? Is it highly reactive soil?
