We're doing a new build with Rawson and considering whether to include tiling with the builder or to do it after handover.
I understand that the builder will put a mark up ($$$) when done during the build but you do get the peace of mind that skirting boards will be laid after hence a cleaner finish. Also, builder will cover floors as part of the warranty?
On the flip side, it will be cheaper to get it done post handover but may incur additional cost to lay skirting boards and potential rework.
Any tips and traps on experiences would be appreciated.

I see the main advantage of getting it all done is warranty as you say.
I have had an issue before with drainage of a tiled area. Tiler blamed the slab underneath and builder blamed the tiler. (Maybe the builder didn't put as much care into the slab as they knew they weren't doing the tiling?? Tiler should not have proceed with the job if they felt that the slab wasn't good enough?)
Got messy. If the builder had done it all they would have had sole responsibility for the issue

I'm suggesting if you know what flooring you would like; and how proud of the floor it sits; and the builder will agree to install the skirting at that height, then do it.…

I would engage the inspector now and ask them to sort this out. I would have a personal policy that I will not attend unless my representative is afforded free access.
