We often get called in to repair faults and damage caused by some of these installations. Deals that may sound like incredibly good value amongst all quotes, often turn out to cause more damage and a higher price to fix, therefore these installations are never good value. Cost savings for the customer also means cost savings for the provider.
Often the work was carried out by well known installation companies in Perth
Yokine – Cheap thin screws used to mount antenna, unstable installation
Piara Waters – Wrong type of mount used, eventually the antenna will fall onto the solar panels
Trigg – Blocks of wood used to try fix unstable installation, resulting in brickwork detaching from house.
Como – Antenna on right of picture, pointed toward the brick wall, resulting in poor signal and picture break up
Dianella – Undersized cabinet used to save costs, could not house all equipment, door could not be closed.
Rockingham – Poor cable joining practice to save time and cost. Intermittent reception faults.
Dawesville – Corrosion on fairly new antenna, poor quality product choice, total loss of reception
Ascot – Poor cable installation practice for security camera system, exposed coaxial cabling along wall
Wembley – Incorrect installation, 4 holes on orange connector box facing upward to collect rain. Entire cabling system water damaged.
Shelley – Poor installation practice, hole in tin roof exposed to water. Incorrect hardware for installation to save cost.
Duncraig – Shocking installation on brand new construction. 25mm hole exposed to rain leading directly down inside roof.
Northbridge – Heavy satellite dish detached from the concrete wall due to use of weak fasteners and no supports
Padbury – Poor quality thin walled antenna mast fallen over, cheap Chinese antenna filled with water. The customer had ongoing issues as a result of his damaged coaxial TV cabling
