Complaint / review text:
BG Construction / Badenheim Group (NHBRC No 37941) is possibly the worst residential building company. They do not take responsibility for their mistakes (always someone else). I had to repaint the entire house inside and out within 12 months of completion to try and fix cracks and plaster joints. According to BG this is a maintenance issue.
They do things in the cheapest way possible, which includes placing sandpaper in aluminium door frames to act as wedges, obviously not successful. No recourse against aluminium supplier as BG never paid them. BG does not "play well" with subcontractors, to the point where they rip off the client (me).
BG provides subcontractors with sub-standard working surfaces and then holds them accountable when problems arise (concrete flooring). This is despite the fact that the sub-contractor warned BG that the surface is not adequate.
Their engineer, Christo (PC) Viljoen (NHBRC 949), should also not be practising as he has no sense of responsibility in providing accurate engineers drawings of the project, or comment on major cracks.
These guys give the entire building industry a bad name - AVOID! Welcome to contact me for photos of their work.
