What are the NHBC playing at

Posted on: August 28, 2009



Even the professionals can’t tell such faults exist in a property without one of two factors 1) ability to check the home during construction, prior to covering over of faults, 2) with time the hidden faults become apparent.

The biggest issue I found is Persimmon Homes and Charles Church with sub standard floor installations, which an estimate put at over £80k to fix properly, and every home I visited on the estate has the same issue, and every estate I’ve visited showed the same problems in any home with a 4m joist span, at 30,000 houses a year this is a massive financial problem.
