Pro­tec­tion

Matamata Chronicle - - Building -

It is stan­dard prac­tice, in many con­tracts, that a ‘‘with­hold­ing sum‘‘ is re­tained for a pe­riod of time. If there are any de­fects no­ticed in this pe­riod you can con­tact the builder and get them to fix it. If you have en­gaged a Reg­is­tered Mas­ter Builder you are el­i­gi­ble for a Mas­ter Build Seven-Year Guar­an­tee which gives you peace of mind for po­ten­tial re­me­dial work that may be re­quired fol­low­ing the com­ple­tion of your project.

If you see some­thing that doesn’t look right on your build­ing project, raise it with your builder im­me­di­ately. Builders are ex­tremely proud of the work that they do.

If a mis­take is made, it is usu­ally in­ad­ver­tent. Once again the key to a suc­cess­ful build­ing project is a good re­la­tion­ship with your builder and this re­quires open and hon­est com­mu­ni­ca­tion.
