Premier builder is not the choice of words i would choose to describe DW. I absolutely regret purchasing a new David Weekley home, "you get what you pay for" rings true with them. David Weekley hires the lowest bid and lowest skill contractors, the work that is produced by some of these contractors is equivalent to someones first do it yourself project. There is absolutely ZERO communication between David Weekley and the subs they hire, i have taken off almost a total of 30 days from work over the course of the last 2 years waiting for subs to arrive to complete warranty work only to no show, or reschedule because the scope of work was not properly explained and they were no equipped to handle it or only to leave with a even worse job. DW produces some of the worst build quality i have ever seen in a new construction home to list a few of the issues that David Weekley considers "normal" in my home.
- Front door/frame not straight
- Tile in the master bath has variances in grout ranging from 1/16th of a inch up to a inch thick, David Weekleys explanation is "the wall isn't straight". You would think one would have relatively straight walls in a brand new home right? Or if the drywall/wood is bad that it would be discarded during the build process. Not with David Weekley
- I have been dealing with a leaking shower door for almost 2 years, every single time they send out someone to "repair" the shower all they do is apply silicone around the shower door and leave, this has happened 4x times, i have specifically asked that someone actually troubleshoot the issue instead of blindly applying silicone this has not happened.
- Front/Back lawns are not graded properly and water sits for days preventing grass from growing in some spots, nor is the ground properly leveled, you'll roll an ankle just walking through one of the lawns.
- When the water heater engages i can hear the pipes moving in the wall 2 rooms away...no fix, their response is "its normal".
- 18 months into home ownership i deiced to rip out the carpet and install laminate, the floor is so uneven its comical, with variances as high as 1 inch. Builder response is "its impossible to have a perfectly level floor". I know houses 30 years old with more levels floors....
-Fit and finish is rough, during closing everything looks nice but 90 days into it once the paint and cauckling shrinks the quality of material and overall touch up is disgusting. Some of the material looks like it came from a discard pile.
- DW cannot control or communicate with their subs at a basic level, we would speak with a DW rep about one item and come to an agreement, a sub would come out and quite literally preform the opposite of what we talked about, this is actually the standard vs the exception. We have not had 1 Spencerian where a contractor came out and properly completed warranty work without having to come back another 2-3 times.
