Subcontractors are not qualified

We are building a home with DR Horton currently. We have a superintendent that has zero building knowledge and a whatever attitude. We have failed numerous inspections and subcontractors are terrible Due to the current market in the DWF area we have no choice but to finish the build I am documenting everything from mud on the drywall being coated over to pole issues on the patio

User's recommendation: If you are looking for Subpar construction DR Horton is for toi.

We are currently having one built also. The downstairs has recently incurred water damage and they are being very resistant on fixing it.

Pipes cracking everywhere in my condo

I bought this condo Back in 2005, brand new since the beginning I started having problems with different issues in my home. Recently the pipes, they are iron cast and they crack making a big mess with water leak. According to the plumbing company the pipes are very low quality, probably made In Mexico or China, they cant understand why the crack in such a short period. In my community the majority of the homeowners have problems with plumbing system. Horrible construction I can go on and on with the different types of problems we are experiencing.

User's recommendation: Do not purchase any home from this company.

Model home issue

Hello. I bought the model home in Fort yargo subdivision in Winder GA. 3068* *** Humphery's dr. I was promised by the Agent that I would get a refrigerator, the washer, dryer and all the drapers inside the home. But when I got there to do the pre-construction walk through by Joseph the superintendent, all the drapes were stolen. Also some of the flowers in the front of the yard were stolen also. The agent claims that he does not know what happened. I am very unhappy with this situation because I was also told there is nothing that can be done about this. How could a home that has alarm on it, the alarm was not being utalized. I am quiet upset with this. Can someone please respond to email. I'll appreciate it. Thank you.

Closing date changed several times

They did address my complaint of my closing date changing multiple times with a phone call with DR.Horton and contractor. Theres nothing they could do due to covid putting everything on back order. They did not Offer anything to make up for it though. They were very friendly about it. Just wish they offered something for my inconvenience.

User's recommendation: They do good work.

Horrible Living Conditions

I live in a subdivision their concrete contractor yells and screams with nasty language that my kids and myself can hear all the way across the subdivision. They don't hire very respectful contractors.

Substandard work in my new home

I filed a warrant complaint about several issues regarding my property. (1) poor water drainage on to my driveway with muddy water every time it rains for more than 10 minutes. (2) Sod that never grew because of shady areas. (3) Broken window frame in one of my bedrooms. (4) Ice cold closet poor heat air circulation vent (5) creaking floors through out the home (6) ceramic tiles in Master bedroom spongy and creaks when stepped on in several areas. (7) uneven flooring in bedroom above garage (8) Rear patio floods with water if rain fall is for more than 20 minutes. Called the warranty department and they came and put a band aid on some of the work and assured me that it wont get worst. Moreover, some of the issues weee not addressed due to Covid-19. Sent an email to appropriate office and they responded you are out of warranty. What a unethical and disgraceful company. My fellow home buyers beware of this builder they slap things up with inappropriate builders that dont even supervise the work that is being Dont in your home. I am a current shareholder of the company what a disgrace.

User's recommendation: Never.
