We are just completing our build with Valeco and we have had no extra costs or surprising bills. Just our contracted price. Hope that helps.
Good to know.
Is your contracted price close to the estimate/quote given by the sale consultant?

Estimated price was basically spot on give or take certain upgrades that weren't included in the first few estimate's.
I can honestly say our build has been great no problems or set backs, and our ss is awesome. Having said all that every single build is a different experience. We had heard so many bad things about them and we're hesitant to even go there, but I'm so glad we did wouldn't change a thing. Communication is the key.

We informed them of all the upgrade we wanted early on so the sales quote was spot on. Plus got credit back on council fees that werent used (narrow block). Shouldnt be any difference unless you want changes after the contract.
Wouldnt recommend Valeco though.

@_sallz I'm thinking of going with Valeco, can you please highlight why you may not recommend them? Did the not meet your expectations as per the plans/contract/timeline? Appreciate any feedback.

I have a friend who built with Valeco. He said from the start of the build it ran smoothly and had a great site supervisor. But everything from when the contract was signed until the build started was a nightmare and for that reason alone wouldn't use them again. I know one of their site supervisors, and he's a pretty switched on guy, but no idea what the rest are like.
It's a tough call to make - I've heard people going through Clarendon Qld who've had a rough time, but my time so far has been pretty easy. Partly luck of the draw I guess? Though the admin phase is tedious enough, I'd hate for it to be any worse than it had to.
Clear as mud right?
