FAQs

Can you offer me any kind of guarantee for your services?

Yes we can. We believe if you can’t guarantee your services, you shouldn’t offer them in the first place! Although these guarantees are certainly more ‘gutsy’ than what most will offer you, we stand by them. Because, well, we mean it. It’s how we do business. And this is the kind of service you should be getting anyway…
Our guarantees are listed elsewhere on the site but are included here for your convenience…

  • Safety Guarantee 1.
  • We offer a 25 year structural guarantee on all walls. Our walls are engineer certified. This means they are so well made we can confidently guarantee our workmanship on them up to a quarter of a century…they last that long!

  • Safety Guarantee 2.
  • You get a full 10 year warranty on all colourbond fencing, so you know it will last.

  • Safety Guarantee 3.
  • We also promise to come back and fix any defects in our workmanship for a period of ten years. This is not limited to retaining walls but includes ALL jobs completed.

  • Safety Guarantee 4.
  • We guarantee to provide the highest level of workmanship and professionalism when working on your property. We take pride in our work so you can take pride in the end result!

  • Safety Guarantee 5.
  • We guarantee fairness and clarity in all our dealings with you. No cutting corners, hassles or ‘funny business.’

  • Safety Guarantee 6.
  • We guarantee to be tidy! All mess and debris cleared away once the job is done. We dispose of all our own rubbish, and clean your paths and paved areas where we have tracked dirt and mud. Once we’ve finished the job, you can start using your new yard immediately, there will be nothing for you to do once we’re gone!

  • Safety Guarantee 7.
  • We promise to be available to answer any questions and keep you updated on your project the entire way through. You won’t be left in the dark as to what is happening. If there are any delays or re-schedules necessary while working on your project, you’ll know about it.

    How are you any different to all the landscapers and earthmovers out there?

    If you’ve ever had to organise construction or renovation of your property, then you’ll know just how hard it can be. There are many phone calls to made, and many independent contractors to co-ordinate. This is in addition to your everyday life, where you have to go to work, look after the kids, and run around throughout the week.

    With Downunder Contracting you only need to talk to one person. We already have a full team, and all the equipment needed to get the job done. We can work around times and dates to suit you, and of course we look after our own staff to make sure the job gets done…so you don’t have to!

    We are also exclusive suppliers of the all new Modutech fencing. It is weather proof like colour bond, only better! It helps with sound proofing your property and it can be painted or even printed! Call us today to find out more about this revolutionary new fencing technology.

    What does the 25 year guarantee mean?

    We guarantee our work because we have our footings certified for building before construction takes place. This certification is done by a practicing structural engineer, and the results can be made available to you.

    What is the best way to finish the joints when laying limestone?

    The choices of mortar joint finishes are a matter of personal choice. We recommend a flush finish, which presents well as it is very tidy. Other ways involve raking (exposing) the joint, which can look nice. However, due to slight variations in block sizes this method has a tendency to look rugged.

    What should I look for when using limestone for any purpose?

    The things to look for on a limestone block are the dimensional accuracy, overall quality and the colour of the stone. Locally made blocks simply do not stack up to imported blocks from Bunbury as the clay content in our natural limestone is high. This results in soft blocks which chip easily and have an inferior colour.

    Who are you and why should I listen?

    An excellent question and one everyone should ask before getting any work done on their property. Downunder Contracting began in 2008. Our founder, Brendan Byl, has worked in construction, excavation and landscaping almost his entire adult life. The team has a great amount of industry experience with many completed projects under their belt.

    For more information please see what our clients are saying about us on the ‘testimonials’ section of our website.

    Why do some walls crack? Is this normal?

    Walls crack due to movement in the ground below the wall. If compaction and footings are carried out correctly, cracks will be kept to minimum. Settlement cracks are normal, and these cracks will be barely noticeable. We offer to come back after a period of 12 months to fix these settlement cracks.
