My husband, [removed], discovered the neighborhood in Prairieville. After viewing other neighborhoods and builders online, we decided to contact our agent and have her set up some showings in [removed] [removed]. Initially we looked at a lovely home that was available for purchase but because had some concerns. We decided the best option for us was to build on one of the available lots. From start to finish we were kept informed whether through both agents employees of Alvarez Construction. Everyone from our initial contact with the builder to our closing date was friendly, courteous, professional and always willing to help. We were kept up-to-date every step of the way through email notifications and text messages. It was amazing to see each phase become reality and I would recommend this company to anyone looking to purchase a new home. In fact, we already have.

I am overall pretty satisfied with the building of my home. I did have some issues when I first moved in which was follows: the drain in the master shower was not put on correctly and my closet flooded which has to be fixed and replaced; the drain pan from the AC was full and another pipe was not done correctly which had to be fixed. Those problems were resolved. Now, I am finding that I may have an electrical issue. When I turn the fan in the living room on and off, the lights in the kitchen flicker. I also have no been contacted to touch up the chalking with the house settling.

I have been frustrated throughout the entire process of moving into my home. The builder tried to push back our move in date because of a miscommunication between them and the lender. This was after my wife and I already moved out of rental home. Once we moved in, we had to constantly call them to come make repairs to and have missed work days to repair people not showing up. And the most frustrating thing is when my sod was put down I specifically said the sod looked dead and I was worried that I will not grow. I was told to water my yard for 2 months and my yard would be fine. 2 months have passed and entire sections of my yard is dead sod. I called customer service after the two month period and was told that because we closed on the house all landscaping is our responsibility! We chose Alvarez Construction because we heard about there amazing build quality and customer service. All I have experienced is one problem after another.
