    We were SO excited to move in to our house. We loved the location and layout. We moved in June 2016. At the time our home was one of the first in our subdivision and was already halfway into construction and had everything picked out. We have owned homes in the past but they were existing builds so this was our first new home purchase! We noticed little inconsistencies in the beginning. Our door was not hung exact. Electrical issues, upstairs floor seemed uneven and cracks... Let me talk about those... These weren't hairline cracks. They were long and over doorways like they didn't tape around correctly.. or not sure but they are around a lot of our windows and doorways.

    The one thing I advise. Which we didn't do is even if it's a new home get a home inspector! We thought we had an extended warranty because we have a calvet/va loan and it's only for foundation and structural. We now have a nice, pretty deep and long crack in our ceiling which is from a leak that when I talked to customer service said happens when you plunge the toilet after it backs up..it loosens the seal? We have had few issues of doing that and I sure hope my toilet is more durable than that (LOL).

    I also tried to get inspection documents from the my city. VERY little notes and no documentation on any issues found (what it was and what was fixed). We are now going to pay out of pocket for a home inspector (which we should have done awhile ago) to really take a look at our build. I now believe and after reading of similar issues this is a systemic issue with Woodside and their poor craftmanship. Will never buy a woodside home again. Nor will I recommend.

    We purchased our home in Aug 2019 in the Brighton Landing Community in Vacaville Ca. We had initial things that needed to be fixed such as nail pops and crack in shower wall in master bedroom. The microwave kept shutting off causing the whole wall plugs to go out. We reported to maintenance they came and checked the microwave and not sure what else but said there was no issue yet it continued to happen and we continually had to flip the breaker. We had the downstairs bathroom over flow only to find out the pipes were less than subpar and had to be replaced after contacting the city of Vacaville water company, we had water damage so we had to have all the floors replaced and the kitchen island and cabinets and in the remodel we got rid of the faulty microwave.

    In 2022 we had some torrential rainfall in which our downstairs bathroom developed a bubble in the wall which was water coming in from somewhere, we reported it and the builder had someone call only to say they couldn’t fix it it was probably due to moisture. It was never fixed, during that time the upstairs laundry room Started leaking from the vents, it was reported, nothing was done. So since 2022 went had intermittent leaks in our laundry room, now with water spot damage and the room next to the laundry room has water stains on roof. I have submitted a work repair request as of today so they can take responsibility for building these homes cookie cutter and cutting corners and the roof where the solar panels are is faulty and need to be fixed asap. The next step is legal action. There are way too many familiar complaints here with the same builder

      I have been fighting to get my AC fixed for 7 years (since we moved in). They undersized my units, forgot to put in vents and left me hanging in the summer. They can’t keep their employees which then falls on the customer trying to get work done on the home! Be aware!

      Typically, people are more inclined to post negative reviews rather than positive ones, although I believe the majority of experiences people have are neutral or positive. My husband and I have had a fairly positive experience with Woodside homes. We purchase a 4 bedroom single family house in American Fork in January 2024. We’ve lived in the home for about 3 months now. We had a third party inspector check out the home before we closed and he pointed out minor flaws that were quickly fixed by Woodside’s team before we closed and moved in. After moving in, we discovered minor paint spills on the stair carpet. While we've managed to remove many of them using soap and water, it has still been a nuisance.

      The biggest obstacle we encountered was our HVAC unit. We had no idea that it wasn’t properly wired until a few days ago. I came home from work and realized that the upstairs portion of our home was 79 degrees (it was only 70 degrees outside) The AC on our lower level was functioning properly. However, when I turned on the upstairs AC, the temperature failed to decrease even after several hours. Fortunately, we had already scheduled an appointment with the company to install a towel rod in our master bathroom (after some deliberation, we had decided we wanted it up). They had offered to install it for us if we chose to proceed.

      It took a few weeks for the guy to come do it, but we weren’t too pressured for time. The guy was able to put our towel rod and identify the problem with our AC. We are still waiting for someone to come later today to (hopefully) fix it, but regardless we are grateful for their help and for honoring the 1 year warranty. Despite these issues, we have loved our home. The home itself is built quite well. The neighborhood is quiet and beautiful, and we love the upgrades in our home. No problems with HOA. Overall, we are satisfied with our choice to purchase through Woodside Homes.

      One week before closing, my inspector pointed out to the superintendent that the fridge wasn’t working. He promised to fix it before closing, but almost two weeks after closing, my fridge is still not working. He still has garage door and keys to my house on the pretext that he was going to come in and fix it. I have tried contacting him several times, but he is not responding. I tried contacting higher management but no luck there as well. Even on the day of closing, the appliances were not hooked up.

      Purchased home in Lathrop in 2015. Discovered eventually that they had installed plumbing and electrical into the house using the WRONG elevation drawing and original building inspection approval was denied due to this. Corner shelf in master shower fell off. Discovered it was not installed correctly, review and claim denied by Woodside Homes. Exterior stucco fell off in several locations, same response by email, not even courtesy of a phone call. Issues with landscaping and irrigation system prior to moving in but finally got that settled after several meetings with Woodside Homes VP.

      3 and a half years of trying to get our 9-page "new home punch list" even halfway completed is unconscionable. By the time we submitted the one year punch list we had 11 pages of work to be done. The outside of our home had stucco repairs done early on (one year mark) which was left unpainted for TWO YEARS. We still have problems with uneven floors, cracked tiles, unsatisfactorily painted interior, squeaky and uneven upstairs flooring and much more.

      Horrible customers service to repair issues they left behind from construction. 2 years later my microwave is still not properly installed and it's still missing parts! They do not answer their phone. They simply let it go to voice mail and do not call back. The representatives are constantly being fired like it's a revolving door. I have had to repair or finish work they did incorrectly or simply would even pass code! (Bad electrical work.)

      Their motto after sales is deny deny I think and I'm pretty sure 90% of just our community alone has problems still! I had to fix my own garbage disposal external drain port because the plumber left the dishwasher plug in it and it flooded my kitchen right when I moved in. Put in a ticket and no one has ever responded back! Don't walk away from Woodside but run away! And should you buy from Woodside, get everything in writing. I have email trails and messages saved but they still tell me in writing or it's null and void what the previous rep agreed to.

      Very frustrated... Bought and built a home with Woodside Homes in Prescott AZ. Let me start off by saying this was supposed to be their flagship development in the area. The home was priced over 1 Million dollars. Wow, what a disappointment. From the finishes or lack of to the missing materials such as ceiling fans, Vent hoods, Holes in the granite for accessories. It's been 60 days since we took ownership and we were promised that everything would get fixed. We were so disappointed we hired a private certified home inspector.

      He found over 37 pages of issues, From air ducts not connected, to gas lines not hooked up, vents not sloped the wrong way. We even found an attic access drywalled over. Drywall patches not painted, walls not textured or painted, HVAC systems not working properly, the list goes on and on. Sad and frustrating that Woodside doesn't seem interested in making it right.

      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.
