This can only come out a group of crooks. The entire sales staff building supervisor and the builder play this game hand in glove. By the way this is currently playing out. SO I will post more details on how these guys try to fall to greater depths in the greed of earning more money at every cost. They prefer to fill 2000 more by going back on legal documents rather than having a happy customer who will say good things about them.
I am sure you can appreciate that we, as with other builders or companies of any type, have warranty guidelines. What you may not realize is that Bonadelle Neighborhoods goes above and beyond those guidelines to make their homeowners happy. I have witnessed this countless times over the years.
Please feel free to contact me at any time. The number I can be reached at is (559) 435-9700 or e-mail email@example.com. I would appreciate the opportunity to try and make you a happy and satisfied Bonadelle Neighborhoods homeowner. Thank you
If you drive through the park 5 neighborhood, you will see a difference in some of the stucco jobs. The houses without "seems' on the sides of them are the homes where Bonnadelle has fixed their mistakes. Those without seems are having problems with cracking and discoloration. After moving in, we had a few other friends move into homes in the same neighborhood. I apologize to them every time we get together and "compare" our problems with our homes. From the wrong color Granite installed and the subs' refusing to fix fix, to "FREE Landscaped" backyards that look like swamps because of poor grading. If you are looking for a home, ask people in the neighborhood who live there. There are so many home builders around the area I would strongly suggest them over where I am. If you look at how many homes around the park 5 neighborhood have added concrete, they have done this because the landscaping lasts about 2 months and again, David Been will only be a problem while telling Mary in the corporate office that he will not fix it. Again, ask around to the neighbors in a neighborhood before moving here. Im confident you will here many more complaints than praise regarding the Bonadelle homes
As a first time homebuyer, the sales office was easy to work with and provided helpful consultation on our loan options. We havenâ€™t experienced any problems since the purchase of the home, so I canâ€™t say how well they attend to issues, but I guess itâ€™s a positive thing that there havenâ€™t been any problems with our Bonadelle home.
1) upstairs double doors in the 5th bed room vs single door.
2) we added full concrete slab for front entry
3) extended the concrete in the back
we had some minor issues that were fixed, and some they didn't because the cracks in the tile were to thin. The door jams were fixed but as house settled some of the door jams that were fixed need to be fixed again. The only door jam that was fixed properly was the garage door entry but the contractor lost the pin and used a small nail for the spring loaded hinge.
Anyways most of the issues is with subcontractors seems that Bonadelle is ussing worse quality ones that back in early 2000.
Based on my experience now if you purchase any track home do the following:
1) make sure to get some spare pieces and put them in a box i.e. roof tiles and ceramic I got some but didn't secure well the roof Tiles also don't BLACK ROOF TILES It's hot in the valley AC cost more than to heat.
2) check you duck work and AC unit as "Mr Cool aka Donald P Dick" puts in a cheap unit on a dual zone house doesn't have enough power to circulate the house if you can get an upgrade do so.
3) If you get floor tiles get a full box of spares even if you have to pay for them.
4) I have some creaking between 1st and 2nd floor if you can afford it have the floor insulated.
NOTE: I had my garage fully insulate it was a good decision.
5) not sure how this got over looked but make sure to get appointment with the Gardner/Landscaper some how I didn't and I don't mid the trees I got just don't like the location so going to have it removed eventually.
Also once you move in not only have all the discrepancies marked but take photos of them with time stamp. Then followup on all the repairs. Also get ready to learn how to do repairs on yor own because once the 1st year is over you may need to do more minor repairs on your own as the house settles. Also be ready to replace any thing made with press wood i.e. walk in closet shelf and bannister can't hold a lot of wait I moved in and hung up all my clothes and the thing collapsed.
When you buy a track home you not buying 1st rate home and if you check out all the other builders Bonadelle is not the cheapest but also not the highest quality either. So in other words they aint the worst but their not the greatest.
The best part of the whole thing is this conversation that took place on 12-29-13 with Cindy was recorded and she made it very clear that she screwed up and didn't realize her co-worker sold a 2 story home there. Now on 1-2-14 she (Cindy) is denying it ever took place.
I Hope this story reaches as many people as poss. to veer them away from purchasing a home from a company that cant have honest people working for them.
Does anyone have any information I should know about?
email me at firstname.lastname@example.org thank you.
