I personally really dislike the look of quad, and I had heard of and read a blog that they were able to not have quad, they just had to cut & install their skirts after handover. The blog was quite a few years old though...
We asked our sales guy about it, he has been fantastic in allowing changes, pricing non standard items, and is very accomodating & nothing's too much trouble, so when I asked he just flat out said Its not a chance of being an option!
He mentioned it had to be there to allow the 'movement', but... Wouldn't the skirting sitting on top of the floor allow for the same movement that the quad does?
Does anyone know if it's possible?
In our experience you can ask them to leave skirtings for you to install afterwards if you are doing your own flooring but not sure about when porter d are installing the flooring. We are installing our own floors after handover (as we feel we can get a better quality product for a better price) and the option of leaving skirtings off for us to install after the flooring was offerred to us.
What sort of flooring are you installing after handover? We got quotes for engineered oak floors but they came in at around $11,000 to $16,000.
We're just putting in laminate but because we're putting it throughout the entire house (ie no carpet in any rooms) it was going to cost us way more to go through PD. We initially had a $10k flooring package but were looking at upgrading from their standard laminate to start with, then would have had to upgrade from carpet to the better laminate in those rooms. I worked out it would cost us around $13-$15k to get this through PD.... now we'll be paying just under $10k for laminate throughout the entire house. How much are PD charging you?
