Can we bring our own tradies?
Speaking for Porter Davis (and most builders I would say), only contracted suppliers and subcontractors can work on our homes but once the home is considered complete, go for it! There is a reason for this (we are not just trying to be inflexible) which is that all builders aim to provide a complete design and build service for their clients so will have rules around using unlicensed contractors, relatives or other tradies. This is also because of their responsibility to maintain a certain quality of work and reputation and for liability reasons. (Current Statutory requirements hold builders responsible for all structural issues and therefore we can not partially complete a home).
