I was advised that the bath panels have a 6 week lead time so they will be delivered 6 weeks after the factories open in January. I was therefore expecting my baths first week of March. Nothing has been delivered and the company now does to respond to my emails, texts or phone calls., I am now quite frustrated as I have an agreed move date of June from my current property and yet my new home will not be ready.

In November 2017, my elderly parents (pensioners) paid Home Rescuers (Garrick Von Graevenitz) a deposit for shelving. Since then, numerous excuses were provided for the work not being completed and after almost 18 months and repeated attempts to contact the owner, the deposit was finally returned. No apology has been rendered by Garrick. I strongly suggest that people who are owed money from such contractors go to their local magistrates courts and get summons issued. Ensure you have all...

Advertise all the nice security, but when they broke into my store on 03 January 2019, the couldn't provide any footage. The agree immediately that they will pay all the damages, but now they don't answer any whats-ups or mails. They expect from me to provide receipts for all the stolen goods, but all the receipts were taped inside the boxes. I think the owner must take sort of responsibility, because we flew down to Mossel Bay on 19 Jan 2019 and on 20 Jan 2019 the broke into 5...

I had quite a major leak in my roof and contacted my insurance company. The construction company used to fix the damage was - at first - quite good and I was very impressed. The fixing resulted in repainting walls and ceilings. A week after they had finished, I used the bath for something and realized at that time that the cold water tap was loose. I immediately contacted Insrep to inform them about it. Was I surprised with regards to the level of service I received! Now that the...

I ordered a kitchen with granite tops from Builders on 15 December 2017. I had to immediately pay as no work will start without payment.Then it started. The measurements that Builders came and took personally at my house did not match the kitchen design, so we had to add another R 12000.00 that had to be paid immediately. We had to move plugs etc as when installation takes place everything has to be perfect. Then the cupboards arrived in January, no granite. We were told that it is different...

These builders are serious con artists and have literally robbed us of more than R50 000 that was meant for materials. They also employed a plumber than was not qualified, we ended up having to replace all, roof sheeting was incorrectly installed...the list goes on. Run when you meet them!

Product installed incorrectly. Spoke to numerous people at the company about the problem, then they just hand me over for legal action for outstanding money. Product wasn't installed at all as promised, left me with problems that I had to get another contractor to fix. Even after phoning and explaining my problem again, all I was promised was that someone will phone me back, but once again nobody did - surprise surprise. Will not EVER recommend this company to anyone EVER.

If you have an insurance claim via Outsurance in Rustenburg please be warned. They used Noordwes Construction for a claim that I have submitted. It has been two weeks and Noordwes still has not done the work as Outsurance paid me and not them. According to the company I am now a private job and their other insurance claims are more important. It does not help to phone them as they do not return calls.

After 2 months, they started delivering material to start a foundation. They have finished half a foundation and now am waiting for more material. Promise to deliver the next day is resulting into two weeks without delivery. They come to the "site" once in a blue moon just to pacify - making empty promises. At this rate, the promised 6 weeks to complete is...
