Grant (?) sounded great on the phone. He quoted a reasonable cost for the building inspection and also gave me a bit of background history, which was really interesting. Unfortunately another buyer beat me to purchasing the property so I haven't been able to use his services yet, but as soon as something else suitable becomes available I'll be calling Barling Constructions to do the inspection. You can't beat local knowledge in my humble opinion!
My husband, Roger and I made a mistake in hiring this company with a verbal contract, not a written one. As it is a local company and we are pensioners living in a caravan park we were trusting. We have a manufactured home in Ballina. We paid Rob the builder $30,000.00 in cash money to renovate our bathroom and to do an extension on our home. We do not have any problems with the room extension, however, we have heaps of problems with our bathroom. We have wall panelling and plumbing problems leaking into another room. The work was done nearly 3 years ago and we have made various calls to Rob constantly during that period, but to no avail. He has never ever come to our aid. BEWARE CONSUMERS!!! GET A WRITTEN CONTRACT, DO NOT BE TRUSTING LIKE WE WERE . Yours Sincerely, Diane Elkins.
Friend recommended we use Northern Riverscape when doing our backyard and I am glad we did. We received a free measure and quote for the retaining wall and pavers. The team were professional and experienced.and their pricing are very competitive. They do all the work so there is no need to call anyone else.
