Unfortunately I cannot recommend building with this company. The communication during the build process was poor, the finished product was riddled with problems that had to be fixed, and communication continued to be poor when some problems went unaddressed. The good news is, after living in our home for several years, our home is structurally sound and we’ve invested a lot of money after the home was built in order to make our home very nice. We do like the floorplan and the neighbors and neighborhood are wonderful. Some specific complaints: - The turnover of the field manager/superintendent (not sure of the title) was high. We had 3 in about 8 months. We were told they would give us weekly updates about the progress of the build. That did not happen. - Attention to detail was extremely poor. At closing and soon after we noticed: - There was a full thickness, large crack at the bottom of our master shower. We notified the field manager. He came out and looked at it and said he would get it fixed in the next week or 2. We had to ask to have them seal the crack so there wouldn’t be water damage or mold under the shower (they didn’t suggest or offer to do that). - Multiple window screens were installed that were clearly the wrong size leaving a 1-2 inch gap that didn’t cover the window. - Several vent covers were installed that were the wrong size leaving a gap in the floor around the vent - They forgot to vent our microwave out even though we paid extra to have this done. - They left a roughly 8” diameter hole in the ceiling at the bottom of the stairs where I’m guessing they meant to put a light fixture but realized it was the wrong location, so they put the light next to the giant hole and then never patched the hole. - At our 1 year inspection we were offered an opportunity to skip the inspection and get $125 or have some things around the house fixed. There wasn’t much to address at that point other than a missing baseplate on the dishwasher and a few nail pops. I emailed the latest field manager (Andrew Cochran) to see if I could get the missing dishwasher piece at the 1 year inspection and he said this was the “perfect” thing to address at the inspection. At the inspection, the inspector told me that they don’t normally replace parts at the 1 year inspection and he didn’t think it could be replaced this late. I told him that this was the only reason I agreed to do the warranty visit. He supposedly contacted Andrew about this and told me that it would be ordered and requested that I sign off on the 1 year warranty visit. The item was never ordered and never replaced. I emailed Andrew about it several times over the course of a year and never received a response. The last email I sent was about a month ago and I copied multiple people that work at Fischer (Annie Sofranko, Brandon Gazarek, Brian Lemity and J. Fair) and no one responded. I would not build with this builder again.
Brand new home, and it’s falling apart. They are unethical. Unwilling to correct any issues with the house. Although, they are at fault. RUN
BRAND NEW CONSTRUCTION HOME WITH A WET BASEMENT! NO ACCOUNTABILITY FROM FISCHER HOMES! I was excited about purchasing my first home. I looked at existing homes and did not find what I wanted. A few had wet basement issues, which I was trying to avoid. Did not want to invest in a money pit and really needed a dry basement because my mom was moving in and I was planning to turn the basement into a space just for her. So I decided to build. After meeting with Thomas Stine several times, I decided to go with Fischer Homes. I’ve been under contract since January. The house was near completion when 4 weeks ago I stopped by to check on the progress and found standing water in the basement, a few days after a really hard rain. Told the builder about it and sent them the photos of the standing water in the basement. They shrugged it off and stated that they don’t know where the water is coming from. It may be from the furnace condensation line. (See the photos) I have photos and videos from multiple days over the last 4 weeks of standing water and water spots throughout the entire basement. Had a home inspection and there were pools of water on the floor in the basement. There was also white outlined water spots. The inspector said the water near the wall/floor is coming from outside infiltration and that the issue should be evaluated further. Sent my home inspection report to Fischer and they blew it off. They said they ran a water hose in the backyard and did not see any water infiltration in the basement. Fast forward. Wednesday July 8, 2020, I went to conduct a orientation home walk through. I spoke to Greg Selby (construction supervisor) about the wet basement issue. Again, I showed him the photos and asked where the water is coming from. He simply stated that he does not know but he stands by his product (house). He said he was going to run the hose in the backyard for a few hours and see if he can find any problems. July 11, 2020, I went to check on the basement. There are new water spots on the floor and the builder has put blower dryers in the basement to dry the area. The dryers were on full blast. If there is no water issue, what are the dryers for? Obviously after the hose test, there was water infiltrating into the basement, again. There were also new white outline water spots that were not present in the basement on July 8 during the orientation. Fischer has offered no remedy or plan to address the issue. Their approach has to been to pretend the issue is non existent. That is completely unacceptable. This has been a nightmare. This was my first time buying a home and I want nothing more than to just close and move in. But I cannot do that until Fischer adequately addresses the water issues. I really thought I was doing the right thing by building. The worse decision I made was to choose Fischer homes. Based on my opinion their work has been subpar and way below the standards I expect for a new home. Fischer has shown no integrity. They have taken no responsibility for adequately addressing the issues. No accountability what so ever. I am spending almost 300k for a NEW home, and so far that is not what I am getting. I am bewildered at how Fischer can just ignore this serious problem and keep asking me when I’m going to close. I will close when you give me what I am paying for a quality, well built home free from water infiltration. I won’t accept anything less. I highly discourage anyone from using this builder. You work hard for your money. Don’t waste it. Do your research and find another company who actually takes pride in their work product. A home is a big investment. Don’t make that investment with Fischer Homes.
WORST experience of my life! Would not even give them "1 star" if I didn't have to choose it! I had issues before I even closed on my house that I was assured would be completed and I am still waiting for repairs 6 months later. I also have 3 separate water leaks that have been going on since February that have not been fixed and I keep getting told "let's try this and see if that takes care of it". Meanwhile I have a basement with an odor that I can't use while they "wait to see if it fixes the issue". I am concerned what issues I will find once my one year warranty is up if I am having this many issues already! I do not get my calls answered and the communication is terrible. They have gone through 3 maintenance supervisors since I purchased this house because they are overworked with all the problems in this community. I am not the only one with issues, people up and down my street dealing with the same stuff for up to two years now with no resolution! DO NOT BUY A FISCHER HOME!!!!
Do not build with Fischer Homes. The work is shoddy at best and you have to fight them all the way to get them to correct it. Complete nightmare
After shocking myself by touching our front yard hose spigot, I had an electrician come out to discover the entire front of our house was electrified since day 1. He found the builders disconnected the ground of the outlet and wrapped the outlet in tape to prevent the circuit from tripping. He found a nail driven through the burned wire, causing 150 volts to run through our walls constantly. Luckily he fixed it, but Fischer won’t take any responsibility. They have been a nightmare since the process started. Thank god it was me that was shocked by electricity, not our 1 year old.
I built my new home with Fischer homes. They have a great on line process which allows you track the build progress .
