Horizon City, on Aug 08, 2021

The house was not looked over correctly and i even got an inspection. The floors are uneven in many places and the floor is lifting in certain corners. The carpets were stained with paint and when i told them they didn't replace it they just tried to wash it off and the stain remains. In the other bedroom they did cut out a part of carpet but did not effort to blend it so its obvious that there are two sections of carpet. There were marks on the wall in one of the bedrooms and i told them so they painted it but it looks so uneven and darker in those areas. The kitchen cabinets and the hall restroom cabinets are not stained correctly and is an eye sore. The master bedroom does not get enough air blown into the room from the A\C making it hot in the summer. I told them this before moving in and they proved that the temperature is correctly but the air pressure is weak. The hall bathroom needs the most work as all the white sealant is coming off all over im assuming due to moisture. The fence in the back yard is also very short making it dangerous with neighbors that have big dogs. My neighbor has 5 pitbulls and are constantly barking and trying to jump over making being in the back yard risky as they have successfully jumped over before and almost attacked a family member of mine. Only positive i can think of is that i live closer to the city.

Pros - Lot size is bigger for more space, Customer service started very good with great communication, Countertops were corrected to what we chose originally. Cons - Exterior paint was not what we asked for, on order form the color is stated correctly but with new process of how the stucco is done it changed the color of the home. Received a coupon in our welcome packet for a free Ring doorbell and warranty did not approve install. Construction took 7 months to complete our home. Flooring we originally chose was no longer available by time house was built so we had to choose new flooring via text.
