Defectively constructed my home
I purchased my Gehan Home in September 2004 and I would like to warn anyone thinking about purchasing a Gehan Home. If you want a quality built home that is also built to code then you better not buy a Gehan Home. My nearly 4 year old home needs 22 piers according to the structural engineer I hired in November 2007. My home has structural failure and the retaining wall behind my home is bowing. Once the retaining wall goes I can only imagine where my bad built house is going to go. My brick arch in the front of my home has separated and the bricks are barely holding on. I have cracks in the ceiling, the walls are separating, the vinyl tile on my floor has separated, most of the doors have sloped, the brick steps leading into the back door has separated and are tilting, the ridge beam and roof joists in the attic are separating, and the list goes on and on. Do you still want to buy a Gehan Home? You better think again. How about I found out that the soils report used to design my foundation wasn't site specific. Think about my home foundation wasn't designed for the soil that it actually sits on. You still want to buy a Gehan Home? You better think again. How about the fact that my home has dropped tremendously in value not just because of the economy but because of the condition it's in. When I notified Gehan Homes of the foundation problems, I was told there were none. Do you still want to buy a Gehan Home? You better think again. I was told by the warranty department the resolution to my home problems were unrealistic. I was told by the warranty department that they welcome the TRCC process. You know why? The TRCC cannot make a builder do s**t. There's nothing to stop a builder from building you a defective home and after you buy that defective home there's no laws to make the builder repair your defective home. Do you still want to buy a Gehan Home???? You better think again, and again, and read this again and then decide if you want to spend a $100k or more on a home that you can't stand to be in or sale. My next home will not be a Gehan Home. If you do, I tried to warn you! Beware!
