We met with CM and SS 7.30 a.m. to discuss rectification work as per Independent Inspection Report.
Following assessment of reported defects and discussions outlining Carlisle Homes intentions we are better informed and reassured Carlisle will follow through with rectifications as necessary.
Numerous defects are minor, some we had 'no clue'.
Garage - the lintel/brickwork across the top of garage opening is up to 20mm out of level.
Will be taken down and reconstructed.
Laundry Sliding Door - is noticeably out of parallel to the inside laundry walls.
CM is confident the defect is a 'bow' in the timber reveal; removal of architrave, sliding door and installation of new timber reveal will rectify.
Study - a small section of cornice is not parallel - previously rectified and still not within tolerance.
Front Feature Render - some areas not acceptable - will be totally re-rendered.
As PCI was two weeks ago (4th March) we were disappointed Carlisle took this long to assess; especially since all communication was being instigated by us. We voiced our concerns and trust our home is priority to a speedy take '2' PCI and smooth Handover - CM and SS assured us Handover will be by the end of March.
Relevant Tradesmen will be on-site from tomorrow.
Without an Independent Inspector many defects, however minor, would not be picked up by the average client. Cosmetic defects are generally visible but Industry Standards and Tolerances require the knowledge and expertise of a professional Independent Inspector. Considering the emotional effort and money invested in building a home; peace of mind to have an industry expert representing us.
