We have been painfully building with Taylor for over 2 years. We have seen from the beginning the substandard work and subs they contract to. From the beginning of the build we signed the contract November 2014 they build started May 2015. Upon the dig they dug our foundation to deep. We were to have a walk up, the way they did it it was a walk up and out. This cost us over $20,000 more to get right. Next was the framers who framed walls so out of square some doors can not be hung and our stairs to the basement the railing has to be goose necked many times to meet code. Our brick was to be white to which we paid a premium for, it was left in the mud rained on and became even dirtier. Our first mason crew did an ok job, but for some reason they disappeared and a new Mexican crew came in, only one spoke English and promised the job would be better. My husband told them to throw out any dirty brick we would buy more..this was ignored. They laid our brick in below zero temperatures, without tarps or heat. There was so much mortar trash we wondered how water would ever get out. Underneath our back porch we paid an additional $24,000 to turn into a bath the concrete porch would be the roof this was framed with untreated lumber touching concrete it was left open to the elements for over a year. All the plumbing and electrical was torn out. The Amish man they had do the concrete was never paid and came back and told us he did not know how to do this and left. We had a new concrete man come in and tear all the concrete off and re pour.The newer concrete man told them there was not adequate support for the concrete roof and new supports were installed but not for our front porch, which is the same situation. They installed drywall, electrical cabinets, granite and plumbing and now has molded and has to be torn out again this is the 4th time. Taylor won't even install door knobs they stuff paper in holes. We are paying for heat and electric. Really??? Looking at the job every day we saw that things were very bad and the brick was sloppy and wavy. We told our second Superintendent at the time to stop we needed corporate to look at this. Nothing happened. The masons continued until they were complete. If I could show photos it would be nothing you have ever seen. We asked corporate to come out in May of 2016, we asked why our limestone sills we paid over $2,600.00 were cut into pieces. Corporate asked if their were any Limestone sills left. Only to find out they were not even limestone. Corporate said "you picked them" but later agreed to reimburse us and has now gone silent. We were told all our flooring and cabinets were coming in and our painter was lined up as they did not like the other painter that never showed as he was not of the quality we required. We were told by corporate that we would be closing in June of 2016. We ordered furniture and paid for white glove delivery service only to have it stored in out unheated and un-cooled pole barn. Our then Superintendent told us if we paid him extra money he could get our home done faster. This was pure extortion. Our next super was to change everything once he saw photos of what we had endured and tried to help he soon resigned as well. We are on super number 9. Our basement molded due to the fact that no HVAC was ever installed during over 90 degree weather and high humidity. They actually wanted to lay our premium 5" plank maple hardwood in this temperature and we had our super call the flooring company and ask if this was bad, as we knew it was, they said not to lay it. We spent over 101 days with no one here. They sent friends of corporate from Indiana to remediate the mold off photos and the crew admitted they were not certified, the owner of that company came to speak with me as I have over 20 years in mold and stated that he did this as a favor to corporate and off photos and was told it was only a small area. He walked off the job. Our brick was cleaned by another mason crew who clearly used muratic acid and has now stained our brick yellow all our fake limestone sills and our concrete porch and sidewalks. We have had numerous contractors knock on our door stating they were filing a lien as Taylor never paid them for their work. We have sent list after list to Taylor with photos asking them to correct these issues. They have over $500.000 of our money and no one has been here at all since. We filed mediation as it states in our contract we were called by corporate and asked to give them one more chance. We did,, we had one painter here for two days and two painters here for one day. They were painting trim that was never caulked. They stepped in trim paint and we have foot prints all over our stained concrete floor. I can not begin to tell you the issues we have had with the brick. It has no brick ledge. The Mexicans made their own out of wood and brick and smeared mortar. No weep holes, they put those in after. I asked them where are the weep holes they said they ran out of cord.Upon removal of the makeshift brick ledge our brick has no support. They told me they were going to bury it underground, this would also bury our plate board and even in Taylor's ridiculous warranty it states it needs to be 6 to 8: above grade. A new Mexican crew showed up and were to remove 3 courses of brick on our pool bath that leaks and install flashing..so no flashing was ever installed. They were to install steel as support for our brick that had no ledge and said it would stick out. We were told no it would be cut correctly..who is telling the truth? Are we now going to take a chance that they intrude upon our foundation wall which is not leaking? This was all off a report from a licensed engineer which was very vague. We investigated the engineer the company name was fictitious and he currently worked with another company but was friends with Chris Taylor on facebook. I contacted him and sent a few photos of our brickwork and what I had found and he never replied back. Following our stop to mediation nothing happened. We re-filed and were called by corporate asking for our bottom line. Never saying this was awful and they would fix it. When we told them of everything they never uttered a word for resolution only they would get back to us. We continued on with mediation and received an email stating that due to severe illness they needed more time. We are to set up our mediation call and were told that Mr. Taylor would not be available until September or November for actual mediation...this is JULY. We are sick of their lies and broken promises and uncaring attitudes. I ran a construction company successfully for over 20 years and wonder how they are allowed to continue this behavior. We are distraught and outraged and can not believe that their "Quality Brick home built on your lot "statement is anywhere quality. We will lose money if we tried to sell this. when we retire, Our brick is already cracking and can only imagine all the other horrible substandard issues that will arise once their joke of a warranty is over. Read all the Rip off reports and BBB complaints Mr. Taylor invites yo to call him directly...fat chance we have been told he is aware of our situation but being so ill can not come out to see our home or even speak with us. Mr. Taylor would you stand for this? I'll bet his home was not built by his company. I will say this to you "God has this" we trust that truth and justice will prevail and this will be made right!!! People need to know what they are getting into with Taylor Homes.
