Home Builder reviews in Johnston

    deWit Construction & Remodeling
    Project was done on time, as promised.  This was rather a large job, tearing off old siding, checking house wrap for any water leakage, replacing wrap and fixing any damage that was found. 
    Neil's crew was very professional.

    Destination Homes
    We placed an offer on a new construction spec home built by Destination Homes.  As part of the offer we reguested that an irrigation system be installed as a part of the price.  The builder agreed, but requested an additional $3500 on top of the traditional $1000 earnest money.  We paid the $4500 earnest money.  We order an home inspection on the house and received a number of items on the report that, while fixable, indicated that the builder was not monitoring the subcontractors for quality (faucets plumbed incorrect, concrete driveway poured under the stone facade, etc.)  The larger item was that the radon levels were approaching 11...anything over 4 is considered unsafe by the EPA.  The house was not built with mitigation system during the construction process, so a retrofit solution would have to be implemented to remove the cancer causing gas.   The inspection company indicated that most likely a separate sump well would have to be cut into the basement floor, probably in an area we had reserved for a closet, then a pipe would be ran through the garage wall and run exposed on this wall up through the ceiling where the gas would be vented.  This on a $500K house before it was ever lived in.  These items combined with the fact that I was not allowed to communicate with the builder directly, but rather through our respective real estate agents, I rescinded the offer asking for only the $3500 of the earnest money to be returned since the irrigation system was never ordered or installed.  The builder and his Iowa Realty agent refused to return any of the earnest money.

    Premier Builders
    I purchased a home from Premier in 2002.  Within a few years the garage developed a leak.  I called Premier and they said that if it hadn't leaked earlier, it wasn't a problem with the construction.  I hired someone to fix the leak, but it was only temporarily fixed with a great deal of sealer.  
    After getting a roofing company to take a look, I discovered that the original roofers installed the Tyvek and the flashing incorrectly, which had caused the leak.  The owner said that it's likely the original roofers did the same in other parts of the house as well.  I had them check other areas and found the same problem.  In one area, the plywood on the outside wall was rotted due to the faulty installation.  
    Other more minor issues include poor quality caulking in the kitchen and bathrooms, and poor quality kitchen flooring installation.
    I understand that no home is perfect, and were it not for the roofing issues, I would rate the company higher.  But the roofing issues and poor customer service when I reported the issue prompts me to give them this poor rating.  I would not look to Premier if I wanted a new house, and if I purchase a used house, I will stay away from Premier-built homes.

    They will not respond.     After the first year, the lack of quality construction is the homeowners problem.
