By the way... Do not listen to real estate sales people. I would listen to the people that actually live in one. And yes the windows leak and rot. I have to put plastic on every year.

Christiaan,

Krughoff is no longer in business. The existing lot inventory in the Enclave subdivision was purchased by BNA, a tract builder.

I've had several clients who were very pleased with their experience with Krughoff. I listed and sold one of their resales, which will close next week...it was only a year old. It was the "Windsor" model.

If you'd like to find a Krughoff resale, I can help you keep an eye on those subdivisions. If you liked a particular floor plan or layout, I may be able to point you in the direction of someone who could build something similar.

I realize it's been a while since you'd asked the question, but this came up on my feed from Trulia today and I thought I would add a comment to what's already out here...given my recent experience.

Sincerely,

Ken Gerrans

They have a good reputation and I have helped secure loans for their homes in the past. I also live in Plainfield and would be happy to help with your pre-approval. We deal directly with Fannie Mae and Ginnie Mae and fund the loans in our name. We aren't waiting around on the big banks to approve the deal. We staff our own underwriting department and get things done quickly. You can call me at (630) 639-1081 and I can give you a pre-approval the same day and help you find a quality realtor in the area.

I have heard mostly good things about this builder. Of course, there will always be some people that are unhappy.

Krughoff does not stand behind their product. They have an excuse for any problem you have. They will tell you that "you did not properly maintain your one year old window's" and that "you need to recaulk your window's every year" that is why the leaked. Do yourself a favor and stay far away from Krughoff. I am not just one unhappy homeowner, I have been to all of their subdivisions in Plainfield and talked to the homeowners in them, and they too are unhappy. We all share the same problems, poor quality and poor customer service. Go and speak to homeowners in Arbor Creek, Hidden River, Enclave and Eagle Chase. They will tell you to stay away. Look at the windows and you will see that they are covered with plastic to keep out the wind and cold.

Hi Christiaan,

Everyone has different experiences with builders. I think your best option is to "google" the builder and "reviews" and see what people have to say. I know they probably have testimonials from clients on their website but, maybe you could have an opportunity to speak with them directly.

Maybe visit some of the neighbors in the neighborhood to see what they have to say.

If there's anything I can assist with, don't hesitate to contact me.

Best,
Michele Nixon

They have a great reputation and have been building homes for quite awhile. They listen to there buyers and build a great home and get the home finished is the time they say they will. The location of there site is right off 59 & 135th. Would you like me to set up a time with one of there representatives to talk with the builder and look at the models? Maybe this Weekend? Let me know what time is best.
