Because I know them from years ago

I sold my fathers small house about 9 years ago. It had 3 lots and I basically got pittance for it. Not much happened for years; about 2 years ago they built a rather large home on one of the lots. OK Then on Christmas Day my brother sent me a link to another house and it was my parents former home and I was delighted to see what they did inside, It had been tastefully redone and fit into the quaint neighborhood. Today 12/26/2021 he sent me another link which was to the monster house they built on the third lot. This neighborhood is quiet and older. The size of the house itself spells money, money, money and is an eyesore in the neighborhood. What goes with the McGrath Builders? Money, money, money!

John McGrath is a good man.The other guy Pat”..,is a Thief.

The scoundrel used illegal aliens to build my foundation The concrete block used was leftover scrap that got mortared together. The porch was poured on top of construction trash. When reported to the County, their response was. “May not be perfect, but it’s OK. This Pat also tried to short cut the number of vents in the ceiling and roof until McGrath caught it and made them do it right. If there’s a problem of any sort, it’s not McGrath, it’s that weasel “partner” . In Newtown, that same weasel cut down a 300yr old Oak Tree to expand the development. He’s the problem anywhere you build by McGrath. They use his name then try to squeeze profit outta “some people” more than others. Any diverse buyer outta watchout for that devil..!! I moved outta the State.,

Mcgrath Homes Review from Royersford, Pennsylvania

I live in the Villas at Linfield, a McGrath developed community. Keeping this short, upon settlement of the final home this builder abandoned the community and Limerick Twp without completing driveways, roadways and many public improvements that were required. This seems to be a consistent method of operation by McGRATH and I suggest anyone considering a purchase from this unethical builder do their diligence in his past performance. His actions have been consistent in the past few years in both Bucks and Montgomery county. ,

MCGRATH HOMES = AWESOME PEOPLE

I bought a home in the VIllas of Newtown and did it years ago. The Builder McGrath Homes fell on hard times and things got delayed - but they always said that I would move in one day . I am happy to say that I am celebrating my 1 year anniversary there. Things are just awesome -sure I had some issues in my house - but McGrath homes service manager and worker David really kept me at EASE and met every need along the way (probably more then he was supposed to just dont tell his bosses that - HAHA). I say that because I see all people across america full of NEGATIVE that I thought I would bring the POSITIVE back for a moment. McGrath Homes did build me my dream home and I am forever in DEBT. my Friend put in a DEPOSIT with another local builder and lost all their money. I did not lose anything and I gained alot. BUY HOMES FROM MCGRATH - if you have any questions message me....This COMPANY is a LOCAL FAMILY RAN BUSINESS and they build a good home - PERIOD

McGrath builders liars

Our Experience with the McGrath Builders at the Linfield National site has been awful. It has been many months and we still do not have our home. I understand the excuses of weather in the months of Jan, Feb and even March. The excuse of the World Cup being on is ridiculous. I drive by several times a week and no one is working. What is the excuse then? I am aware there are many sites this builder works on however I feel this site has been unethically ignored with the hopes to get other possibly pricier homes completed first. They continue to lie to us and tell us time-frames. The time-frames come and go. I will never advise anyone to use McGrath builders.

WHOMEVER POSTED this comment about McGrath HOMES has not kept up with the facts. The fact is that the Buidling Business went down the TUBES - McGrath Homes did all it could to stay alive and in THE END THEY FINISHED THE JOB - PERIOD!!

= McGrath Homes builds great homes that last and has even greater staff working for them to satisfy its customers all day every day. They DO CARE.

you clearly have some affiliation with mcgrath homes and are making the reputation worse. GeT yOuR fAcTs StRaIgHt.

you sound like a child arguing with people about their reviews. flat out of it was a good company the reviews would not look like this.

maybe take some action to improve the look of the business and quality of work rather then being a keyboard warrior. that’s solves nothing

Angry Buyer

Has anyone listened to what is going on with McGrath Builders -Villas of Linfield PA? They have not completed what they promised -driveways, roads, warranty issues, entrance to back of development, sink holes you name it. How much longer can this go on? We made settlement Three (3) years ago and still do not have what we put our hard earned money into. McGrath Builders will not respond to calls or letters -But they want residents to be Ambassadors for them - Why is this not being brought to the attention of anyone? They are not a reputable company to do business with.

GET your FACTS STRAIGHT WHOEVER YOU ARE>McGrath HOmes has stepped in and completed this community 100% and all homes just settled in the past 6 months. THIS COMPANY LIKE SO many other small companies fell on IMPOSSIBLE times and sure things got ROUGH with no way to turn and they would never RUN and McGrath Homes STAYED and THEY ARE FINISHING WHAT THEY STARTED.

Hard times fell on small BUILDERS - 99% of them filed and left CUSTOMERS with ZERO - McGrath Homes stuck it out - all over AMERICA small family businesses suffered - I know this family well and they would all give you their last dollar if you needed it. bottom line is THE FACTS here in this situation and that is ALL THAT MATTERS HERE and here are the FACTS = all homes just settled out there and now the REMAINING WORK is being done this year.

THAT SHOULD BE GOOD ENOUGH for you whoever U R - if it is not then I am sure your one of those sorts of people out there that complain about everything and nothing is good enough ever - in that case please spread your hate somewhere else = because MCGRATH HOMES BUILDS HOMES THAT LAST and they finish what they start.

We have lived at The Villa's of Linfield for several years and agree with what has already been said.

Still waiting for our 30 day inspection list to be completed. Calls and certified letters go unanswered.

What are we to do? Very frustrating situation!
