Original review: Sept. 18, 2022

Purchased and closed on a home about 2-3 weeks ago, which has started building since February/March 2022. Not only was I rushed to close on this property, but the company is dragging their feet to get anything properly done. After the first walkthrough, there were plenty of issues that needed to be addressed. Things were not done until I was basically moving into the house. In fact, I had to be the one to make sure things were getting done. As a consumer, this is not my job.

Not only is there a problem with their perception of priority and time, but the things that were actually worked on were done horrendously. The house looks cheap. It looks nice on the outside, but walking inside, you can tell that things were done without care and that shortcuts were made. They hung up a clearly scuffed, defective cabinet. They left a lot of uncovered holes in the process of installing light fixtures. They claim that they are low on resources for the stone on the outside of my house, however other houses were completed before mine. You can see the glue used to cement the sinks to the table in the bathrooms. There is still no doorbell. They did not wire the fiber cable to my house when it should have been done before I moved in. When contacted about that, it was somehow made my fault for not telling them about this sooner. I wish I did not close on this house. I feel cheated and lied to. I would not recommend this company to anyone. Now I'm stuck with this expensive problem.

We closed on our home 3/16/22. We were waiting for our exterior stone to be completed and when finally done they used left over stone from another home. Our stone doesn’t match and quality of work is poor. I’ve reached out to the Customer Service agent to see if they will come fix it and have not received a response back. The stone on the same style homes in the area and on model home does not look like the stone they installed at our property. Our home was not cheap and we decide to build with WOODSIDE because of the product they showed but the quality of work we received on our home is not the same. We’ve dealt with numerous issues since closing on our home 3/16/22 (i.e. wall not leveled, whistling hood, cabinet face missing, leaking tub, cracks in tub and etc.) which majority have been fixed but still waiting on a few things to come in or get redone but this coming will not acknowledge the poor quality work done on our stone.

    While our home shopping and buying process was exciting and fast, our experience as homeowners with Woodside Homes has been very disappointing. Woodside Homes' website speaks of quality and the pride of craftsmanship. However, all we have experienced as homeowners are slew of electrical issues, lack of craftmanship and cheap materials, delays and excuses. It is obvious they can't wait for the 1-year warranty to expire so they can move on and not worry about fixing the issues they created by not building these houses properly. Buyer beware!

    We signed on our Woodside home in Mesa, AZ in December 2021. We were so excited, and were repeatedly told by the women in the front office that they and the build team would keep us constantly updated throughout the process. From signing, they said, the home build process would take about 6-8 months. In January, we went in to make our design center selections. After those were sent off, we didn't hear anything for a few weeks and started to get concerned. We drove by our empty lot, and noticed that people who had signed for a lot after us were starting to break ground. Confused and frustrated, we emailed the front office women and were told that one of the women had unexpectedly quit, and she hadn't submitted our paperwork correctly, causing a delay in our groundbreaking. We were irritated, but figured it just a one-time mistake. Well, we were wrong.

    We're now closing in on 9 months from signing (today is August 18) with no end date in sight. Our cabinets were supposed to be in over 3 weeks ago, and there's still no timeline for their delivery. Every week, we're told that the cabinets could arrive "any day now" and every time we ask for an update, there's radio silence on the other end. We've been told that we'll receive an update by the end of the week, and still hear nothing by the end of the following week. Updates have been far and few between, and it feels like pulling teeth to even get a half-assed response from their front office or construction lead.

    We've been told that the "industry is a mess" right now, but we feel like Woodside is the real mess. Homes that broke ground after us have had their cabinets and flooring installed while our home sits empty. There is no explanation provided, and no attempt to make things right for us while we sit confused and losing hope by the day. I'm full of regret about trusting Woodside to build us a home. We feel misled and wouldn't recommend this experience to anyone.

    Original review: June 28, 2022

    My partner and I signed off on purchasing a new build back in March 2021, through many Covid related delays, we finally were excited to move into our home in December 2021. That week, we did a walk-through early in the week to call out any repairs that needed to be fixed before our move in date. On the day of our move-in (1 day before xmas) half of the items were still not fixed, replaced or finished correctly and still have many outstanding items. We received our keys a day before Christmas only to be rushed in and have the house with many outstanding items to be completed.

    We paid for a brand new house and we're pulling teeth to get items completed correctly one by one. Our garage floor had cracked concrete and it's taken four separate visits to have our garage fixed. Our house was handed to us with it still having dirty cabinets, and putty still visible throughout the house. It's been 6 months and we've asked to have our issues escalated to management and yet to hear back. Completely absurd and would definitely not recommend buying a home through Woodside. They're rushing their jobs and passing on the crappy unfinished jobs to their customer service team. I know many other residents who moved in around the same time encountering the same issues. Awful, awful communication amongst their team as well.

    Original review: May 17, 2022

    The sales team did a great job, not sure if I was supposed to receive a gift or not from Woodside. After moving in for a few days, some items in the house did not function. I called the site supervisor and he was extremely helpful, tried to repair things himself. After being unsuccessful, he forward my concerns to Woodside's representative and it has been two weeks with no response. Our Woodside realtor can't get a hold of him too. I was patience enough but now it seemed like as long as they get your money, communication stops.

    Woodside Homes response

    Hello! We apologize for any frustration you're experiencing. Woodside is dedicated to taking care of our homeowner's needs, so this gap in communication is irregular for us. We will provide your feedback to your Customer Care Team for their review and they will reach out.

    Buying a home from Woodside Homes was the biggest financial mistake of my life. Woodside Homes not only has the worst quality control and workmanship of any builder or any home I’ve ever been in, they will also provide zero communication and help after they’ve rushed the house to their idea of “completion.” Six months later, and I’m still missing essential items (cabinets that were promised shortly after closing are still undelivered) and have had zero additional work or fixes completed despite the multiple promises, “I’ll get back to you”s, etc etc.

    The fact of the matter is, the house you are getting is built poorly throughout the entire process. I wouldn’t be so upset about delays for fixes if it weren’t for the house itself being of such poor construction to begin with, but the quality issues in these builds are undeniable. I have a brother-in-law who works in construction who I had come inspect the work, and he could do nothing but laugh at the low effort, corner-cutting methods utilized. Every contractor I’ve had in the home to do work since moving in has shared a similar sentiment. For Woodside Homes to take such little pride in their work and not back up the big talk that the sales team will feed you throughout the entire process is nothing short of disappointing.

    In addition to all these issues, the purchase price you’re quoted at the initial sales meeting will go up by $30-50k by the time you are finally through the waitlist and it’s your time to sign the purchase agreement. The whole process leaves a horrible taste in your mouth, and the overpriced home is not at all worth the poor level of quality put into it.

    On 3/29/22 we are experiencing another plumbing leak in our 2nd story plumbing that is leaking down to the 1st story roof. We experienced a leak from our shower upstairs in 2020 because our shower was sealed incorrectly. Now another plumbing leak. The plumbing was not done correctly. We highly do not recommend purchasing a Woodside home as their workmanship is not per riverside county code.

    I bought my 1st house from Woodside Homes and spent 450k. Since day 1 facing a lot of problems- water stands on driveway, indoor outdoor walls are full of cracks, paint wearing off near the windows, not properly insulated as you will feel a cold air flowing though closed doors and electrical outlets. All these stuff is normal per warranty manager and I have to wait for the cracks to widen up so can patch up and paint them. Per warranty manager the cracks are normal as the house was built fast and build in summer and given references of other houses In the neighborhood. Pathetic experience- Worst, worst and worst home builders.

    Initially we were extremely happy with our Woodside Home. Our building process was amazing! Great communication and super helpful getting things corrected. Since living in our home our opinion has changed completely. We are within our first year of living in our home and naturally have repairs that need to be completed. The communication with the woodside representative has been sporadic at best. Trades come to our home and have no idea what they are there to fix and they do not have the correct supplies and because of this need to be rescheduled. The same trades have been scheduled multiple time and either do not show up or cannot make the repair. We are extremely frustrated and disappointed with this part of our process.
