How Pulte Homes treats their customers


Delay and more delay Pulte's tactic on stucco

Published Tuesday, July 31, 2012

We purchased our Sun City Hilton Head home in June 2006, and the builder began building our home in October.

Even before that, Pulte knew of the stucco issues and could have made the proper changes to the building process. This would have corrected the building procedures and saved so many of us from entering into a lawsuit to correct this problem.

Pulte has done nothing but delay, delay and delay, even to the point of initiating legislative action in the state Senate to eliminate our right to legal action in this matter. Thanks to our state senator, Tom Davis, and two hearings before a Judiciary subcommittee, that action failed. Now, after denial of motions brought by Pulte and South Carolina State Plastering, they have filed four appeals.

An estimated 4,300 homes have been built with improper flashing and control joints. Driving down Sun City Boulevard and throughout the side streets, one can see the homes with scaffolding on one or more sides as they are being repaired.

If it cared enough about its reputation as a builder, it would fix all of the stucco on all of the houses instead of this piecemeal job they are doing.

By the way, we were impressed that Pulte sent a court stenographer to take down every word the presenting attorney said at a recent meeting held to tell homeowners about the class action lawsuit. Even more impressive was the attempt to stop the attorney from presenting us information.

Thanks, Pulte.
