Hi; I am the Developer of Deerfield Estates in Ward, Arkansas. I am also an active builder in the Phase II portion of the development. We have never had any settling issues in Deerfield that I am aware of. We definitely have not had any on any of the homes that I have built. And none that I know of from any of the other builders in Deerfield. The soil in Deerfield is a very solid soil. We even have in our Bill of Assurance that each builder must compact the placement of slab fill on each home. This even helps with the cracking of concrete floors. This and the standard Builders Warranty provided on each home becomes your Guaranty of Satisfaction in Deerfield. If you have any interest in moving to the area I would love to show you what we have available. Please feel free to contact me ............Toby Troutman at 501-580-8496 cell or firstname.lastname@example.org.
