I entered into contract with Deanhard & Davis to build my home. Everything was proceeding well until about two weeks from closing. They started to push to close when the house was not completed and had numerous workmanship issues, some which jeopardized the structure and occupancy of the home.

We agreed before the contract was signed that Deanhardt and Davis would resolve a serious drainage issue. Russ Davis said not to worry that it would be completed by the end of construction and this issue was minor. A week before closing Brian Deanhardt told me that if I didn't close he would start charging interest. He said no home is ever complete at time of closing and that they would fix any items after we closed. Being the first time homebuyer I fell for that scheme and closed.

Of course, even though our contract said all items would be resolved within 30 days of notice, it has been almost three months and my house is not complete. In addition, it is still not built to contract specifications and now they are trying to bill for items they put on the home (an upgraded HVAC) accidentally without our permission. We are also dealing with severe cosmetic issues, door leaks, and poor workmanship that devalue our home.

In addition, the drainage problem is washing out our septic system and putting water directly on our foundation.

The breached their contract, employed fraudulent business practices to close on an incomplete home and bill for items not agreed upong. In addition, their incompetence is jeopardizing the structure and occupany of my home.

Deanhardt and Davis has worked with me to resolve the problems.

AUTHOR: Michael - (U.S.A.)

Deanhardt and Davis has contacted me and promised to resolve my issues with my home. They have told me also that they have put in place new quality policies to ensure that this would not happen again to future customers; that they would be quicker to respond to open items. In return I have contacted the boards that I posted the complaints and requested that they be removed.

Deanhardt & Davis Wilson NC finally addressed my problems only after promise of legal action

AUTHOR: Michael - (U.S.A.)

Deanhardt & Davis, the contractors that I hired to build my house and the ones that I filed the original rip off report on finally responded towards the end of 2004 and took care of about 90% of the problems on my house only after I talked to a lawyer, sent them letters promising legal action, made several forceful phonecalls, and prepared to seek legal action.

I still have several outstanding problems that they did not repair, not to mention the fact that the house still is not built to contract specifications.

They called me February 2005, surprised when they discovered that I had filed a consumer response to their conduct on this web site and several others. They asked me to remove these postings quickly. I said that they were in no rush to complete my house and fix my problems, why should I be in a rush to take down a report that alerts consumers to these issues? However, in an effort to take care of the problem and put the issues to bed, I simply stated that even though I shouldn't take these postings down, if you take care of the other problems at my house, I'll remove the postings. Sounds more than fair.
