Lennar - CONSTRUCTION DEFECT
i know these houses are mass produced but i had high hopes for lennar.i should've read reviews 1st before i made my decision but its too late now.
if they will give me ALL my $$ back i would gladly give them the keys. here's my story: recently bought a townhouse at ARTESA community, upon initial inspection found lots of paint / grout ran-off & construction dust inside & out specially windows. stove has dent, kitchen counter top kick panel has water damage, garage door opens rough & sometimes stop halfway, front door hard to open & close, i had ceramic floor upgrade as well as QUARTZ counter top & workmanship is definitely not topnotch not the worst either but you could see vanity mirror not centered ,some doors not square to the frame & some tile are not completely leveled . its a mass produce after all.
but here's the biggest kicker, 2 weeks after moving countertop outlets (3 each) has no power , no GFI reset. after another week all outlets in the kitchen are out, then 1 day i discovered water damaged from the cabinets where the microwave was plug-in. long story short that was the cause of all outlets being shorted out & all GFI will not reset. we pulled out all outlets & sheetrock behind it looks like mud from all the water collected.
they open a whole to the ceiling & kitchen wall to determine where the leak is coming from ,after few days of dust & open walls they concluded its not plumbing or roof / stucco issue but condensation due to thin insulation & hollow space between cinder blocks (that side of the wall is exposed to sunlight from sunrise to mid-day). next week they told me they will pump foam & close -up the wall .
i was furious knowing the moisture will still build up & will be absorb by foam causing molding issues few months or yrs from now when warranty expires.my health is more important than this house & ill do everything in my power to let the public know apparently there is a high percentage of such complaints & issue this is a health hazard & should not be tolerated.
