I'm not sure if it's just the time we are currently in but we have not been seeing follow through on vendors to fixing items on our home. We have had side paneling not last and now have an ant problem bc of it. However, [name removed] is responsive.

I loved working with [name removed] and [name removed]. They were absolutely amazing! They were patient, caring, kind, and understanding. They listened to my family and my request and found a home, not a house but a home for our family. [name removed] and [name removed] were fun and easy to work with. They are simply the best in the business.

In regards to the quality and warranty; everyone is really great at telling you that they will get things repaired on your home but there is NO follow through with these promises. The quality of the home did NOT live up to the expectations. We have come across multiple things that need to be addressed and have been attempting to get these issues resolved but so far only get excuses or no reply. We are getting close to our one year mark and there are still a number of issues to resolve but at this rate I have no faith that they will be taken care of.

The quality of the interior finishes is terrible. For instance there is a crack in the drywall in one of the bathrooms where the corners were not taped. Also, a stuck window was repaired, but large cracks were left around the window.

She sent pictures of the progress throughout the build, and managed our expectations by informing us of any challenges and set-backs during construction.

We had high expectations because of the customer service, however the workmanship is terrible. We have numerous items that need fixing through warranty and very little has been done. [name removed] with the warranty department has been encouraging that everything will get taken care of. We chose Armadillo Homes because we thought that the quality of the home would be better than some of the other production home builders. Sadly, that is not the case!

Working with [name removed] and [name removed] was great, and I couldn't have asked for more from the two of them. Unfortunately, I went under contract before the big freeze and before prices exploded and the building process became very volatile. I had huge delays, which no one could really do anything about. [name removed] kept me abreast to what was going on and [name removed] was honest with me. They both went above and beyond to ensure I was not only taken care of but happy.

At first [name removed] and then [name removed] were doing an excellent job but then all of a sudden we have not heard a word from either of them. I sent texts on the 3rd and 8th of February and have not heard back from either of them. I know [name removed]’ time is limited due to an upcoming deployment with the Army and with new houses being completed daily, I imagine there’s again too much work for them to adequately address the problems for each house, let alone my home which is one of the first houses sold since you started building in this area. We have identified numerous issues and would like to have the ones that haven’t been corrected, fixed.

Poor quality of work. Wasn’t offered all options. Plans weren’t followed and plans didn’t consist of my options that i did choose. Felt like they would drag their feet about things. Didn’t give me an estimate on closing until I sent a text. They notified me of closing a few days before closing. If I had to do it all over again, I would have rented. This whole experience was a disaster. [name removed] seemed to have excuses. What’s worse is when I initially met with her, she never told me the full amount I needed to give her. She would call me and say this amount, then do it again. She did this 3 times. I could have paid it all up front but I wasn’t given the full amount in the beginning. It was weird. Maybe to drag it out. [name removed]

I was told my home would have several features that it turned out to not have. The home took over a month longer to finish than I was told it would. Staff is hard to get ahold of, doesn't return calls, misses appointments. The grass looked dead on my close date and I was told "Don't worry we do this all the time, just water and it will turn green.". The grass has remained dead since I moved in. The warranty department is now failing me as well.

[name removed] did a fantastic job with customer service and communication. Once we moved in the home we have had numerous disappointments with the quality of the workmanship and materials used. We had a major plumbing problem that they had to tunnel under the house to fix, the shower is cracked, footprints all over our driveway, subfloor movement and creaks, damaged kitchen drawers/cabinets, back door let's water in when it rains, bathroom counter top damaged, cracks in grout between tub and floor, holes in drywall under sinks and behind stove, the header board on garage door seems to be a bad board and it is visible, and so on.
