after seeing a few builds which do their flooring post handover, i am having second thoughts now. what are the pros of including flooring as part of the contract.. apart from convenience of course. i saw the price of the wood-look tile we chose at beaumont and i feel like we've been ripped off by metricon!
should i do the flooring post handover? can i still make changes to the contract at this point?
Seems strange that you haven’t seen your variations yet if you’ve already signed your contract.
With flooring it is definitely more expensive through Metricon but you have to weigh up cost versus convenience. We are getting all of the tiles down through Metricon even though it will cost more. But we are doing carpet after handover – I work for a flooring company so I can get it at cost. That now means we will have to organise installation before we can move in.
If you have the time and can wait a few days to move in then it’s definitely worth looking at getting flooring installed afterwards.
Yes, we signed our contract and there were some mistakes. They included a few items which we did not confirm/agree on and there were some credits which they forgot. They said that they will correct all these in the post-contract variation at no cost.
Convenience and warranty are the main reasons why we opted to it with them in the first place. But seeing a number of people do it post handover made me think twice.
Thanks for your feedback!
