 It would take too much room to note all that has occurred with the home that I purchased from Hunter Homes. At the advice of my doctor I had to move out of the home (let it go back to bank) due to the mold and health issues that it caused because Hunter Homes would not adequately restore the home to livable. But as you can see from the inspectors summary basically says that it would not be worth repairing.

I contacted numerous agencies for help and received none.

Hunter Homes refused to buy the home back and made no offers of replacement.

This is one re-inspection of two that I had done by private inspectors in which they both basically stated the same.

Inspectors Summary:

I have reviewed photos by client and others. It appears that cracks in slab and

drainage have resulted in mold and unhealthy situations.

Conclusion:

There are numerous code and industry standards violations. Due to previous

issues with moisture intrusion and the poor construction practices I do not believe the problem

has been solved. There are too many areas of possible moisture intrusion to determine if repairs

have relieved the problem. We have issues concerning the lack of proper flashing at brick

veneer, improper roof assembly, drainage issues, foundation height above grade and cracks at

concrete slabs. These are all issues concerning moisture intrusion. The front walkway may need

some excavation to determine if there is adequate support for veneer and support posts. All of the

issues need to be resolved to provide an adequate structure. The best materials, equipment and

preparations can not compensate for poor construction practices. The repairs will be expensive

and time consuming.

When you're ready and able to buy again you might consider looking at some older homes this time, there are some older homes in the Huntsville and Madison areas that have great bones since they were built in different times. There is a new home builder called Breland Homes that seems to really build a great product for new construction but their prices are a bit higher.

I am inclined to agree about the county inspectors as I could never get a response from them to come out and reinspect the property once I discovered the defects. NOONE bothered to get back with me, and I tried more than once. I don't care to disclose the community. I have and am still trying to put the experience behind me; it was very painful, stressful and disappointing to say the least.  I thought that I had purchased my dream home. I have chosen to move on and am preparing myself to purchase another home in a year or so but I will go into it this time much wiser,

 There have been rumors that the building inspections that are done while new homes are under construction are more laxed out in the county than in the city limits. What Hunter Homes community were you at?

Obviously you did not understand the complaint which states that the damages listed were AFTER I had been in the home about a year. Of course, homes, especially new ones, are required to be inspected. Who would move into a NEW home without an inspection report. Unfortunatley, the home passed the new construction inspections. Again, the damages to the construction APPEARED after being in the home, which is why I had to get additonal ones.

Hunter Homes VALUE

AUTHOR: mmkbama - ()

Hunter Homes has filled a much needed niche for VALUE priced new construction homes in the Huntsville, Al area. They are the only builder that offers new construction homes in some of their price ranges and have offered the most square footage for the money by far than any other builders in Huntsville, Al. I hate to say it but the home inspection report that you have copied and pasted here should have been done before you purchased and closed on your brand new Hunter Home, not after you started to experience problems. Home buyers are legally permitted to have home inspections done prior to closing on the home and that is the norm these days-most Realtors (buyers agents) will recommend and sometimes insist that a home inspection should be done prior to closing and if there are any major defects the buyer has the option to back out of the sale but will still have to pay for the cost of the home inspection.
