"In 2004 I made the mistake of signing a contract with Pulte homes to build a house for me. There have been widespread problems in the 6,000+ home development where I bought (Sun City Hilton Head, SC) including substituting nails for hurricane clips in roofs (the building code requires that houses be capable of withstanding 130 mph hurricane-force winds in this coastal area) and widespread problems with cracking and failing stucco. Unfortunately, Pulte puts out so much BS on the internet and other media that most people are unaware of how bad a builder that Pulte is. I've tried correcting that with my blog (http://peretired.blogspot.com/); but, it's just about impossible to get the word out. Thanks to pissed consumer for their efforts."
