Re: Redink build - crossover3

I tried to get it done myself when I build through redink. I got few quotes as well. but then decided to get it done through redink as it was too much hassle getting curbing done from someone else, shire approval and paving. at the end it was cheaper to get it done from builder.

One of ours was wrong too - our inspector picked up on it at slab inspection stage. They only fixed it around plumbing stage. Do you have an inspector?

Nah don't have an inspector. Was going to find one to check up. They've basically stuffed up all piping. The only one they didn't was ensuite. Spoken to RI and they said it'll get fixed but dunno how they'll fix a massive hole in bricks. And worried that if now a pipe leaks due to expansion of bricks etc that'll I'll get water damage. So annoyed they didn't pick this up before bricks.

Id be more concerned that there isnt much of an angle on the horizontal bits...dont want anything sitting in the pipe and stinking up the house :/
Unfortunately this is one of those situations where i would feel the need to get an independent inspector. Throughout our build redink did listen to our concerns and tried to do the right thing but i would still want a second opinion considering how important drainage is!

Oh and i wouldnt be too concerned with the hole in the bricks as long as they patch properly...id be more concerned with long term pipe issues...and the damage to the slab?!

Thanks Kat. That's wat I'm concerned about aswell. If pipes are all above and exposed. Specially the one that's right under the brick wall. So annoyed. How could they f**k the piping up so badly. Maybe one or two pipes but all. Arrhh. Yeh there's one of the toilet pipes where they've taken a heap of slab out.
Ripped out the black mesh n all.

Oh dear I wouldn't be happy about that, definitely get an independent inspector. Our pipe was one for electricity so they didn't need to go back all the way down for it.

We're using houspect too - but be aware that you don't get to interact with the inspectors themselves, you deal with the office. Which may or may not be a problem for you, I think if I'm unsure about something on a report I may prefer to talk to the person who did the inspection. Also, for us it was important to have photos of defects - we just assumed we'd get this. So if this is important to you too (some faults are covered up later so you may need photos to refer to them) be sure to ask for it.
