I recognize all of your complaints. I have cracks in my walls. Floors are creeping, cracking, unleveled. Floors are so terrible they cannot be repaired. The entire house will have to be torn down. The roof leaked until we had it repaired. The floors leaked messed up carpet and molded room walls. I have had the kitchen and bathroom floors replaced. Yes the faucets were very cheap. They leaked until I replaced them. Read more

My Jim Walters home was built in 1977. My walls inside are not straight,they have a slight lean to them. My outside walls all so lean. I am still in the house but had to make a few repairs where I could. Particleboard for your sub flooring (not a good idea). Once it gets wet, it buckles. Rain got inside the house in one bedroom on the particleboard flooring, solution was just remove where it buckled and put a piece of plywood there. Read more

This is more information I meant to include in previous review # 775674. Some of the wood exterior boards that they used are toxic and they have rotted and falling off the house. These boards were spareradic, ie, they used two or three boards of the correct and then substitute four or five of these cheap ,toxic boards which is rotting and falling off the house. Add comment

I had a the Victorian style house built by Jim Walter Homes. I have recently learned that some of the siding used on my house was not supposed to be used for exterior purpose and that it causes health problems. I need for them to give serious attention to fix this problem or I will pursue further actions. Ellarease Johnson. 229 995 3184 Add comment
