Drees Homes - Lies-irresponsible-lack of knowledge

Details
I have 12 short videos on my house alone. All are available. More can be made. I believe local corruption is involved.

User's recommendation: Get a realtor with construction experience.

Our yard is a total mess. We had no idea that the fairly flat lot that we purchased with the home was going to turn into a bunch of huge hills and the dumping ground for the neighborhood water drainage. Our yard gets saturated by 4 homes water that comes into our yard turning it into a river and taking the yard with it. They planted the seed as promised but because of the volume of water running through it just took the soil and seed away. They then sodded some turning our yard into a patch quilt and promise to finish sodding, then they just said it just needed fertilizer. Our sidewalks and porch steps came away from the house because of the yard sliding. The tree in front is tilted. Our yard is useless for 3 days after a rain, and we can't get any grass to grow because it just keeps washing away. That's just the outside. When we needed the carpet on the stairs tightened the warranty person stapled it with a staple gun. Dree's does not back up the mistakes their people make. It's either they are a contractor or what they've done is acceptable to Dree's. Just beware. Don't let them push the repairs down the road unless in writing because you will just hear that they never said any such thing. the pictures below show that we had a fairly level lot, the amount of water receive, the patch quilt that Dree's feels is acceptable, and the gap between the driveway and ground that they said is ok. The driveway concrete doesn't need to touch the ground. Just waiting for that to crack. You can see they built the house and then pushed the dirt up around the house and it just sinking and going away from the house. I hope this helps someone. I live in Eagle Ridge, Alexandria Ky if you'd like to see it for yourself.

Cheap paint that you'll need to replace. Cheap engineered flooring that chips and splits easily. Poor grades that allow water damage. Walls without proper insulation. Cookie cutter homes. Be very careful about the neighborhoods that are entirely or partially built by...

Details
After Foundation poured, framing and windows done, Drees has pulled my builder of the year, Brad Vickers, who they highly touted, to go work at another development. He will no longer be our builder. Most unhappy about this.

We had issues with some windows but my wife loved it so we kept it.Im a handyman and started doing upgrades to the house when i started to notice foundation walls unlevel holes in the house that just aloud cold air into the house freely. And if i ever asked for someone to help fix my issues i got a run around buy people that had no clue what to do it was no we cant or u voided the warranty of a house i just moved in .and if u dont do your do diligents they will not look to help it is get them to sign.

They stated construction would start in 90 days. Didn’t start for 7 months. When asked to be released from contract stated they would then when I asked for my deposit back they stated they never agreed to that. They kept lying about the reasons for the delays. Contract states they will start construction in a reasonable time.
