I said "shortage of SKILLED labour". If the chap doing the plastering doesn't know how to plaster, supervision isn't going to change that. Nevertheless, I agree that the resulting shoddy work should not have been left uncorrected and it would be better to build fewer houses to a higher standard, with resultant lower profits, than to foist rubbish onto buyers, and there is simply no excuse for the lack of fire barriers. Whoever is responsible for that should be given the heave-ho.

Shortage of labour is no excuse for proper site management and QC. Poor quality work is very expensive for construction. Wasting time, materials and management time. Moving to off-site fabrication helps but won't solve short cuts like not installing fire barriers.

I think the real problem is the shortage of skilled labour now the Europeans have gone home and this is common to all the big builders. At least Persimmon, I understand, do have their own training facilities so hopefully things will improve. I think the new broom will be doing a bit of sweeping which may reduce profits in the short term but hopefully be good for the long term.

Devonwood. I was in IT, but the project software you suggest was available over 20 years ago - though we didn't have tablets in them days. It is a good point you make, though I would have thought they have the software already. My guess is it's the lazy supervision, and the sepervisors not being checked on too. They need to be accountable and culpable for work they check/signn-off so they do it with motivation rather than lip-service. Photo's to supplement is a good idea, but have never worked on site to know whether they don't use them already.

Time PSN and others implemented some technology into build QA. Every house has a build manual. Put it on a tablet with build diary, photos, GPS and time stamped. Remotely monitor progress and quality. Every house versa build passport including snagging. The construction industry needs to modernise.

Extremely unlikely to be Co policy so inadequate supervision/quality checks the culprit. Management (lol )to blame, and some should be sacked for their failure. Workforce would not cut corners if they knew rigorous checks would be made.

Agree on crazy and mega expensive and impractical to return to retro fit wall /fire insulation and the like. Pure guesses, inexperienced / contracted work force, rushed to meet targets, inadequate supervision/quality checks. It makes no commercial sense.

Seriously, why are there so many new build horror stories? Persimmon seem to be the worst offender although there are others at fault. The larger the builder the more risk of faults. As a shareholder of another house builder, I want a smaller dividend if they improve the quality of these houses. That is a more sustainable model than having to go back and fix issues, surely

Yes the disgruntled customer stuff is old news really and certainly not isolated to Persimmon as most of the big players fall short too.I believe there will be a feature on Watchdog at 8pm this evening regarding fire spreading through timber frame properties. Does anyone have any update on the government review of Persimmon? TIA

Plumbertrade, It should be obvious from the PE ratio that the market is not expecting growth - flat is fine, especially as it leaves PSN comfortably positioned to keep delivering its 10%+ yield. As to the news, it is not new news - I think it is has been well known for some time that the big housebuilders have often poorly served their customers. I actually find it very encouraging that PSN are finally responding to this and do seem to be genuinely making changes to mend their ways in this regard. I am hopeful that this will, in due course, give them a strategic advantage over those of their rivals that are being slower to respond.

How is the share price not taking a battering? First the news release and then the flat statement.

Is there a new build conspiracy

Could be, a lot of the issues look cosmetic but you do expect a new house to be well constructed. Id be less worried about missed paint / flaky but definitely concerned about warped walls
