The majority of our yard is on the side of the house and the builders cut off the yard in the back with woods and a water runoff. There is also a retainer wall. The noise from the street is so loud as the primary bedroom windows face the street. It also poses as a safety risk for our pets and children for anyone walking down the main road sidewalks to walk into our yard or break into our home. No other home has this issue. The site map is not reflective of the true allotment of the yard- AND they are refusing to let us put up a fence. At this point we regret even purchasing this home and if the interest rates weren't through the roof we would just sell it and be done. WE were lied to for profit. We have been trying to get this resolved now for months.

We built our home in 2017 and have had tons of problems. AC has gone out every summer, wiring for recess lighting flickers on and off, floor tile cracks, and dry wall nails are everywhere. The paint they use is builder's paint, and if you breathe on it, it stains. The dry wall crumbles off any corners in the house. The windows were different sizes, so the same size blinds couldn't fit windows next to each other in the living room. When they sent someone, they told us it would be better for us to cut our blinds to make them fit the smaller window!
For a long time I thought a square area on the ceiling was a shadow cast from the window until I finally realized it was a spot they had patched, and the white is a different color than the rest of the ceiling. The latest issue is a pipe leak. Yesterday, water was flowing down the kitchen pendent light that is right under the upstairs bath. The light attaches with a round part that's about 1" deep and houses the wiring. I took the light down, and the part attached to the ceiling was full of water, and the dry wall was wet and soft. I called Beazer Warranty, who sent someone out. He was told to "recreate" the leak because some people have lied. By lied, he means the kids overflow the tub and it leaks, and blame the piping.
My 24-year-old uses that bathroom and doesn't take bubble baths with toys, so no flooding! Geez. The technician turned on the tub/shower above the kitchen and let it run. Water did not pour out the open electrical hole where the pendant had been hanging, and since he couldn't recreate it, the boss said they couldn't cover it. What?! If it's a slow leak that finally fills up the pendant light until it flows over and runs down it, you're not going to recreate it by running water for 10 minutes. They want me to let them know when I can recreate it! So they want me to let the slow leak fill up the pendent light that houses wires until it overflows again, or it falls from rotted drywall, or burns down the house? Probably want to wait me out until warranty expires!
I forgot to mention they messed up the grading between our house. They didn't realize our yard was as wide as it was so the grading slope goes through part of our backyard not between our house and the neighbors. *As for the cracked tile the warranty guy at that time was awesome and he did send someone out to fix the tiles even though of course it was out of warranty... Problem is one year later the crack came back in the exact same spot. These homes are thrown up quick and cheap!

I am filing a complaint because the builder didn't uphold their end of the deal. They made many empty promises and failed to lock me in at a lower rate of 5.99%, and then they expected me to come up an extra %4,000 for closing and my payment rose up over $400. I excused my contingency clause to withdrawal but now they are stating I'm not eligible for a refund of my earnest money. They've also pushed back my closing date several times and there were serious issues with the yard, very little sod and water would pool in certain areas.

Year ago we purchased a home in Texas. We thought buying new would be a great experience as we wouldn't have to worry about anything breaking or needing to fix anything. Boy were we wrong. Let me preface this by saying this is not just my experience, but my neighbors who also have Beazer homes have had serious issues with their homes as well.
In my home alone we have had our kitchen cabinets replaced twice and are on a third time due to improper plumbing. Last week they were supposed to come out. So I waited at home Monday And Tuesday. Monday the granite people came out to take off the counters, the plumber (Cathedral Plumbing) never showed so the granite people just took the counter off and put it in the garage. I waited all day Monday for the plumbers, Tuesday the cabinet people came out and began asking about the plumbing. Hello I am not a plumber. I know nothing, hence I bought a new home. Needless to say after many phone calls the plumbers never showed Tuesday so the cabinet people couldn't take the cabinet out and replace it. By Friday we still had no plumber, no new cabinet or counter top so I asked to have everything put back together which again was a nightmare. Another day I had to stay home and wait for people to come to my house. So now my kitchen is a mess.
In the meantime they didn't slope our master bathroom shower correctly so they had to pull out the shower floor out (they did this twice because they didn't do it right the first time around). During this they broke some tile. After looking everywhere we were told there was no more tile like we have so they would need to replace our flooring. Mind you they had to take our shower doors off so we've been without a working master shower for months now. They are supposed to be out today. Note another day off and it will take 3 days to complete.
Next week supposedly the kitchen will be fixed. Another 3 days I have to take off work to hopefully be done with that. Then they will need to come and paint because of the damage that happened, so another day off. We still have issues with our yard, so we're fighting with them on French drains, which they put in by our neighbors already because of their yard flooding. We had sprinkler issues, electrical issues, problems with the whirlpool appliances (that's a whole different nightmare). Door handles falling off, doors not put on properly, engineers come check stability, painters, plumbers, contractors, rocks on the back wall falling off, our floors are completely uneven but fall into the reasonable flaw agreement and there's so much more. There have been many days were no one showed. All in all in one year I am going on having to take off over 50 days to be at home.
Overall the quality of Beazer is a one, only because my house is still standing. This was not a cheap home by any means and the amount of days off, headaches and tears cried because of this has been endless. What should have been a joyous occasion has been one headache after another. I would never buy a Beazer home, I would never recommend a Beazer home.

WARNING: If you are considering a Beazer home, investigate the HVAC enclosures for the home, and talk to the neighbors. I bought a Beazer home 8 years ago, it was 10yrs old at the time so the homeowner warranty has done. The HVAC was dying when I bought it. Replaced it with a robust unit. Per multiple subject matter experts who evaluated my situation, the new replacement unit died 7.5 years later due to faulty design and duct work by Beazer. I will NEVER buy another Beazer home. Beazer declined to provide any assistance given the warranty expiration. Not their problem is what I was told.

We haven't even moved into our home yet and have had a horrible experience with deceit upon deceit. Call us the lucky ones (not) in that our house is being completed a full 4 months ahead of schedule! Despite my attempts to get Beazer to nail down a timeline, they have strung us along only to drop the bomb that the house will be ready on May 27th instead of the Oct-Dec deadline they were originally telling us.
To add insult to injury, VP of Sales, Janise Turner, told me the closing would be near the end of June. I asked her to work with us and requested a closing date of the second week of July. So not only did we not get a direct response, we received a letter today telling us the closing is scheduled for May 31st! What the hell happened to the end of June? I'm so disgusted.
Our liaison, Cary **, has also been deceitful from the get-go, dodging my questions about when the house will be ready, stringing us along as if we were still looking at the Oct. deadline. What the hell good are weekly updates when you're completely blindsided that your house is ready 4 months ahead of schedule?? No problem for them - just pay 2 mortgages. Meanwhile, I have 1 kid in college and another one starting this year. Screws up all of our plans and sours what was supposed to be a really joyful event in our lives. We can't just disrupt our lives, sell our house, and move 4 months sooner. May karma get all those working for Beazer who perpetuate lies and deception.

We build a new house 6 months ago and we paid more than 900K for the house itself and upgrades. We are really disappointed. Their quality of control is the worse. Since the beginning everything was poorly managed from the builder. Their contractors are not really good and professional. We have crooked walls everywhere in the house. Our expensive “Calacata Gold” in the kitchen was damaged during the process when they try to fix something else. We still have a big list of a lot items to be fix and to be done, but we only have a messages from the builder promising things since last September/22. We have a corporate visits in our house more than twice, but it's all **.
We upgraded our garage door and paid for it and of course and we still don’t have it. We also upgrade our master bedroom door and we still don’t have it. We upgrade our living room doing 1 more cabinet and paid a lot money for that and buy the end we have a crooked door with bad shape when you see the cabinets. My cabinets was replaced 3 times. It's like a joke, but it's true and they still did not finish it. The last week before our closing our wood floor was damaged because they did not use the protection to prevent it. We did regular visits to follow up and I have a lot pictures of it and what I understand It was poorly managed and of course their contractors was the worse, so that way, they did more money with less costs and less quality. I will NEVER recommend this builder.

Over all sales force only seems to care until you give them the deposit check. (10 percent of purchase price). After that point, no is their default answer. You quickly discover that project superintendent does not check work performed by subcontractors. Simple things which could be easily accommodated are dismissed with a standard corporate reply. Quality is seriously lacking in many of the areas that you would expect to find in a property at this price point. You find them cutting corners at almost every turn. It seems that their approach is to rush it to closing and then toss it to the warranty department. If you're looking for a typical cookie-cutter community, there are many other options available at a far better price. If you take about 2/3 of what they say as accurate, you'll be about on target.

Research home builders before buying a home! I assumed the name Beazer meant good, we were wrong. We have had numerous warranty claims since living in this brand new home for only two months. Ac and heating issues in which the plumbing was not set up right. Our home could have had a serious leak had the heating unit not shut off. Whoever installed the drain did not do it properly.
We have had major cracks in the homes interior and exterior. Cracks between two walls, cracks from windows to ceiling and a very large crack across the living room ceiling. On the exterior cracks in the brick on both sides of the house. One side of the house the cracks run almost the whole length of the house. Put a warranty claim in December and still waiting resolution. No feedback given to me after inquiring on the engineering report. I wish I had read these reviews before. Buyer beware!!!

Thank God we pulled our contract with Beazer 2 weeks before closing in The Highlands of Porter, Texas. During the building process, I saw numerous flaws in the product and craftsmanship. Where is the quality control? The area doesn’t have that many homes under construction or completion. The building manager has plenty of time to make sure there is quality work being done…but NO! We were basically told that this is what you get at the $400k price range. Are you kidding me. We had put down $4k in earnest money and of course forfeited that because our explanation didn’t warrant a refund. Again, are you kidding me? Do yourself a favor and think twice about buying from Beazer…or at least hire a home inspector to save yourself future agony.
