I still don’t have a mailbox! I was told it would be about 3 weeks. It is now 2 months. They put up a temporary but the post office will not deliver. I have to go to the post office to get my mail. I called but still no resolve.

Home was not cleaned as expected. Since we had to be out of the area until move in, we were not ready for the movers to bring things into the new home. Wall dust was everywhere and many areas had not received a final wipe down after walkthrough as directed. ... More

When I did the walk through I did realize there was so many issue with the house. I moved in and immediately found several poor workmanship problems that had to be fixed. The good thing thing is Pulte has a good warranty team/program.

I found the overall finishing of the house not up to par. A lot of items that were basic and standard were missed. Seemed liked a rushed job to get the home completed.

When we closed on our house and did our inspection we were told by our construction manager that we had 30 days to report any issues we found with house that may have been missed in our final walkthrough. Once we identified these issues however, the people in customer service/repairs did not want to fix things. They claimed that we may have damaged them when we moved in. So here we are with a damaged garage, bathtubs, roof tiles, stucco and cabinet. So disappointed with our "dream home." ... More

It is really important to identify and get things fixed before move-in. The biggest mistake I did during the home celebration was not paying attention to each and every detail as I was under the impression that any defect can be addressed later on due to a 12-month warranty. It has been 6 weeks since I moved and so many issues are coming up. The service team is really poor to address any issues. ... More

Love the home but lacks in detail and finishing touches that I would expect from this builder. The structure is amazing but there are some items that you would expect to be of higher grade in a home built by Pulte.

Requirements from builder were met however, do not expect anything over and above what I ws absolutely necessary for builder to pass inspections. Less than expected finishing work. For example, the on the front porch were covered in cement although we were told they were already "cleaned up." Not a great welcome present to walk into. Outside trim paint was missing or "thin" in many areas. Ceiling vent in the guest bathroom was askew. The list goes on. Nothing horrendous but very disappointing considering these are not cheap homes. We are not big complainers or trouble makers but we had originally had been very excited to move here after leaving a long-time beloved home. The landscaping wasn't done when we moved in and we were OK with that but there was a brick in the driveway that we had to move when we pulled up and then trash was everywhere in the yard. Again, we understood that would be taken care of when the landscapers came (and they did a great job, by the way) but very disappointing to see. We did a "final walk through" the day we closed and the home hadn't been cleaned yet (they were doing it that morning and we closed in the pm). We thought it would look great; even the porch had dirt all over it. We were just disappointed. ... More

I waited a while to do this survey as I did not want to do it right when frustrating feelings were taking place as I could not be factual in my comments. The overall process with the purchase of the house went well. From the sales representative, which was always kind, responsive and engaging to the closing team, and everyone in between. I moved in over 2 months ago, and a week later, and encouraged by the field manager and even the closing team, I checked the house in more detail to see if there were things that needed to be taken care of, and indeed they were some, and may be more to come in the future. I placed the work order on the builder’s portal and after the reviewing of It, the repairs started to take place. Not wanting to give into specifics, what I can say is that almost two months later of placing the WO the repairs have not been completed just yet. Vary of reasons have happened, and I’m not trying to blame anyone, truly, but at the end there is still work pending to do. My advice to new buyers is to look in detail the conditions of the house prior closing and point them out. It is really easy to miss things when you do the walk throughs with the field manager as the happy feelings of getting the house can “blind” the buyers. Please know that the house in general is fine and I love living in it, good the laid out, it is spacious and so, but there are things that the more I’m in the house, the more I realize that they were not supervised properly to deliver a house close to being perfect (with exceptions as in everything and completely normal) as it is a brand new house what I was getting. I’m giving this review not to talk bad at all about Pulte and their employees as a corporation, but to share my ongoing experience. I’m not mad for the time it has taken to fix the things I pointed out, although I got to admit that I’ve been frustrated at moments, but I know they will be fixed at one point. I know I’ll place another WO in the mid future and that’ll I have to wait, but as long as they get fixed, and fixed well, not just in a surface level, I’m going to be ok. Regards. ... More

It's obvious that Pulte rushed to complete with cracks appearing in less than a month in the basement in areas that are not engineered to crack. The magnitude of building building waste left on the garden is definitely a disappointment. Not providing a real solution for gutter drainage means that water washes top soil away, so adding in solutions to complete such a basic function as exterior water drainage to the nearby storm sewer is just a nuisance an what should be a basic water management add-in which would also reduce the risk of standing water around the basement. A smart decision on this from Pulte would reduce risk of basement leaks. They already installed a sump pump pipe to the storm drain, so using gravity from the gutter pipe straight to the storm drain would be better for the environment as less work would be needed by the sump pump to lift water back up and out again for maintaining a dry basement. ...

The only thing i would give 5 starts to is the response and effectiveness of Customer Care Manager Chris and the Building Home Manager Loren. Anything else i would rate very poorly. The quality of the materials and home is very poor. Not withing 32 days and the brand new dryer breaks. The poor quality of the paint in the house. Not even a good welcome from the sales department. You are pretty much left alone to figure out you way around with the community. Was not given any directions or instructions as to how to get into the community with the sticker and fab was not even activated, if it wasnt for Loren we would be so lost. We have bought cheaper homes and gotten far better welcome than what we have gotten from Pulte. The quality of the materials used in the homes are very cheap. ... More

We are very disappointed in the representation of Pulte through their sales representative Jane. She was extremely aggressive and rude when we asked about a drainage system that was placed in our backyard.The drainage system was not represented on any surveys, nor was it disclosed to us. When we saw the house it was covered. Instead of trying to come to a solution we were told "Just cancel" multiple times. This was very unprofessional and unreasonable as we were to close on the property in a few days. After speaking with her supervisor a solution to the issue was presented to us but not to our expectations. On the other hand Our Site Manager Bobby was amazing. He went above and beyond fixing everything that needed to be fixed. He was always reachable and completed any task quickly and with a smile. He was a pleasure to work with. ... More

Too many decisions made for the customer, not by the customer. Mirrored floor plans create windows facing neighbors windows. Electric switches & conjoining lightening fixtures aren’t conducive to clients lifestyle. No rear porch option available. Would appreciate concrete driveway option and finished interior of garage.

Would be a plus if Pulte hired some carpenters who know what a framing square was. Walls are so out of square it is hard not to cast your eyes on the defect. One short wall between doorways is 11 inches in length and 1inch out of square from end to end. It is a common problem through out the house, Very disappointing. Also a damaged washing machine that should have never been accepted or installed flooded our home and ditto for the dysfunctional water softener that re flooded our home a week later. There were other issues that have been addressed such as failing to cap the gas line to the dryer after replacing the damaged flooring in the laundry room. This is not a favorable opinion of the Pulte Brand. ... More
