Balwin Properties
BEWARE: Terrible Workmanship

Complaint / review text:
I purchased a new unit from Balwin Properties in Winchester Hills, Johannesburg back in November 2003. They gave a 5 year building warranty and in June 2009, noticed gaps forming between the wall and floor in the Garage & Bedroom. I brought it to their attention, they eventually sent out their structural engineer, reported that the floor slabs have sunk, is part of the settling and said no further sinking will occur.
Balwin proceeded with putting new wooden skirtings in the Garage and in the Bedroom, lowered the existing wooden skirtings as to hide the gaps.
Recently, I've noticed gaps forming again, meaning the floor has continued to sink and is still sinking.
They are the 'professionals', all they did was mask the problem and allow the warranty to expire, as not to incur any further expenses.
I honestly do not expect a response from them, like another complaint said: 'Hiding behind their warranties'.
With this experience, I will never invest in a Balwin Properties Development ever again!
