Purchase Experience Testimonials from Real Homebuyers

San Marcos, on Sep 10, 2020

The AC system leaked water onto the floor of the closet which in turn leaked on to the garage floor which is stained. Took two service calls by the contractor to identify and correct the problem. Squeaking door hinges were eventually corrected by corporate customer service representative. There are two electrical outlets which only register partial power. The concrete foundation(?)exterior coating is cracked in two places and on the west side of the house the foundation coating does not extend fully to the ground.

There have been too many contacts and too many people handling warranty. There should have been ONE number to call and they should handle everything.

I’ve been living in my home a year. I dislike that my home still has work to be repaired by Buffington after a year! I also disliked the fact that I thought I was buying an “Elevation E” home with four lights in front of my home. It only came with three and doesn’t look uniform. ??
