Complaint Review: Bancroft Custom Homes
Bancroft Custom Homes5290 Smith Kramer St. NE, Hartville, Ohio United States of America
Bancroft Custom Homes, Bancroft Homes, Bancroft Construction, Claude Bancroft Homes Custom home project over budget, over timeline and never completed. Poor business practices. Hartville, Ohio
We have now been in the house for about 2 years. As it stands right now, we still have multiple leaks in our roof that started during construction. A wet basement. Doors and windows that do not seal or lock, Electrical issues, and an HVAC system that does not work properly. These items are just the beginning of the issues we have experienced.
We chose to go with a local custom home builder because of the horror stories we heard about the big national builders. Clearly that wasn't a good decision, because with a very small builder you have little to no recourse when things go poorly.
If you are considering building a home, and plan to use a custom builder, I strongly recommend you call references. Choose a builder that builds more than 2 or 3 houses a year, and plan at least 20% over budget in terms of time and money because the builder will not be able to see all costs. The way the fine print in their contracts works is that the customer is responsible for all changes, mistakes, and cost over-runs no matter whose oversight it was.
