Hi everyone. I am in the process of buying a new build. I should be closing end of July or early August, and I’ve been going out to the property every other week or so for the last month and a half to see the progress.
This week, drywall was hung up and taped. This morning, texture was applied. Everything looked good to me so far, until yesterday.
Yesterday, I noticed that one of the windows looked crooked, and I couldn’t unsee it. Here’s some pictures, as well as two pictures from the builder’s website showing how the window is supposed to look. I brought out a tape measurer and noticed that from the inside, the space between the door and the window on the left side is 8” while on the right side it is 7.5”. This is why the window looks slanted towards the right.
I called it out in an email and sent it to the builder’s sales agent and my realtor, and the agent said they would take a look. What are the chances they actually fix it though? Is this even fixable? Is this something I could point out again in the blue tape walkthrough?
This builder is supposed to be one notch above DR Horton quality wise, and I believe it. But this does not look like quality. I’m paying lots of money for it and getting under contract in this market is hard enough already… I want it to be worth it.
