Sunnybrook Estate - Raleigh, NC - Buyers beware. I went under contract with Beazer Homes on November 16, 2012 and construction has just started the second week in March. After four (4) months of stalling and tagging me along, the company stated the home would not be delivered until end of May, so I decided to end my contract. Beazer decided to not give me my earnest monies back because now they say they can have the home completed by April. They failed to have a pre-construction meeting, which is their normal process and just started laying the plumbing. I question the integrity of Beazer Homes and do not recommend anyone to do business with this company. This is bad business. I'm disgusted and frustrated given I am a first time homebuyer.
February 23, 2013:
The construction of our home was supposed to be easy. They were supposed to schedule periodic walkthroughs of the home, and they never did them. The quality of the construction was very poor: uneven walls and trim, texture on the walls are sandy and rough, cracks that were never fixed on our sliding door (they just got covered it up with calking), and light fixtures that were never installed; the list goes on. We also had a solar conduit installed so we could get solar panels installed in the future; however, the conduit was blocked by AC ducts and cannot be used ($$$ down the drain).
When it was time to blue tape, they were supposed to fix all the issues before closing. When we got the keys to our house, none of the repairs were taken care of, and it took them several months to finally fix the issues. The outsourced companies kept blaming other companies for issues, and I was given the run around. This is just a few of the major stuff, but overall, they have not been helpful at all with resolving minor issues; also, the quality of the home is poor. I hate the fact that my walls are uneven and the trim looks horrible. It looks like we have wavy floors. I am embarrassed to show people my new home because it looks like it was cheaply built.
