Brian Mallory Construction Paraidise California

I bought a home built by this locally well-known contractor in 2007. It had been built in 2003. Two months into my residency we had a major storm with strong winds. That morning I walked into my kitchen and felt water hit the top of my head. I looked up to see that the skylight had been moved by the wind leaving an 18" x 18" x 6" gap. I called the Realtor and she got some one to come out to fix it. The man who did fix it said that it and the other skylight had never been fastened to the roof. Then a few months later I went outside to work on the yard. I noticed that the siding which should have lasted forever was warped. A friend said just to put screws in where the construction crew had nailed it. Unfortunately putting screws would not solve the problem because there are no studs at the seams of the siding. The only fix is for me to hire someone to take the siding off, add 2 x 4 studs and put up new siding. Expensive!! There are a number of other problems with this house all of them construction issues. They are the kinds of things that you just don't notice when you tour the house. The wood laminate floors were not laid correctly and there are numerous gaps. The baseboards have the same problems in every room. There are electrical problems in one bedroom and things end up getting fried. We have to use surge protectors on everything that gets plugged in. The electric panel is labeled incorrectly and it's difficult to locate the proper circuit for anything. This also means that the things hooked up to the GFCI circuits are not necessarily the ones that should be. If you are thinking about buying a house by this contractor please rethink your plans. My brother is a contractor and says this is not the way homes should be built.
