I started this blog in 2007 when I discovered that Pulte Homes was putting out false information about the nails that they substituted for hurricane clips in the house that I owned, and THOUSANDS of other houses, at Sun City Hilton Head in Okatie, SC. (SCHH is located near the coast where the SC building code requires that houses be capable of withstanding a 130 mph wind gust from a hurricane.)
In late 2011 we put our Pulte house at SCHH on the market; it finally sold in mid-2013. We are now part of a VERY large group: FORMER owners of Pulte homes.
Unfortunately, Pulte Homes, or Pulte Group, or whatever they're calling themselves these days, isn't the only bad builder; and, unfortunately, shoddy construction isn't limited to private construction. Check out http://silverspringtransitcenter.blogspot.com/ . Not only is government failing to protect us from shoddy construction in the houses that we buy; but also, government is taking OUR money (taxes) and using it to fund shoddy public works' projects.
