I have no idea who put the $400 loss up there, but re-water proofing the house was over $7,000 alone. I put out over $35,000 before I decided to give the house to Fannie Mae and stop bleeding money.
That was when I discovered the entire east side of the house had mold growing under the dry wall and between the siding. There were places insulation was non existent. I hired a Structural Engineer and his report showed many more problems I had not even discovered.
I took a $25,000 check to re-coup my losses and not wade through this in court. But I still have thousands of photos, reports, receipts, and videos to prove how inept these builders were.

Choice Homes was everything they claim not to be, and what they and their website claim to be is bogus and misleading. They lost their insurance in the third month of building, then everything stopped and they stopped all communication. Two months + later they started again but left the customer with thousands of dollars in interest fees from the building loan....charged when they weren't building! They double billed and outright lied about charges; saying they had to "bore under Pacific Street" to hook up the water and charged an extra $800+!!! After hearing this several times, proof was given to them from the county and MUD that these claims and charges were outright false. Three years later, having paid to have the home RE-waterproofed (flooding) because neither Choice nor their waterproofing company would honor their warranties, having the peeling paint scrapped off and put on again...this time with a PRIMER (duh!), having the sump pump replaced twice, and the yard RE-graded and sodded three times, having the correct exhaust vent put in over the oven ( a used one at half the power needed was put in behind the woodwork), having windows, patio doors and rotting woodwork fixed because they "forgot" to put in weather stripping and didn't hang things plumb.....now the siding needs to be RE-done as it was installed incorrectly and the insulation was also ruined by the gaps and leaks. Let's not forget this month faulty wiring had to be replaced and brought up to code so the fuses would stop blowing and sparking. There is a lot more. The BBB was a joke, the insurance settlement doesn't even cover the first year of repairs, so a lawsuit will be filed. CHOOSING Choice Homes (and believing they knew what they were doing and that they had expertise and good morals) was the WORST CHOICE of my life.
