I posted a few months back about problems we are having in regards to our home in AZ. Long story short, we contacted a construction defect attorney and he advised us to have our builder correct any problems they were willing to correct and after they have completed their work we should then make our complaints to the AZ Registrar of Contractors. Basically he said that submitting all of our complaints together should hopefully prevent any possible delays. We have a pretty large list of problems we will be making complaints for. Our upstairs flooring is a nightmare. They send someone here a few week backs to pull the carpet and repair a few areas of our sub-floor. I knew we always had problem with some areas being uneven. There's an obvious spot down our hallway where the floor just drops off level. When he pulled back the carpet it was measured at close to 1/4". He said it should be like that but there was nothing he could do. Needless to say we have horrible differential creaks and noises because of the flooring being not level. It's even worse in our master bath. We were advised by our builder's rep that the floors in there would be fixed. We haven't been able to use our master shower for 6+ montsh because the shower tub creaks so bad due to the floors underneath it being so uneven. There are 3 different elevations in our master bathroom floor! The creaking when you walk through there is ridiculous. Again, our builder's rep said it's normal for the shower and tub and counters and walls to creak as you walk by them! Also, we hear creaking and popping noises from our windows all day and night. Each window is about 4'x5'. We were told we hear the popping noises because of the temps outside. We'be talked to neighbors with the same model as ours and they are not experiencing this. If you press against the drywall next to each window you can easily make the windows creak. Every night as I sit and watch TV I hear about 3-4 pops an area from any given window. Our most serious problem is with our driveway/walkway/garage. Basically the grading is way off. I posted about this before....We have standing water for days at a time after it rains. They attempted to repair a driveway slab before, but the problem now is much worse. In addition, we feel they created a trip hazzrd between the walkway/driveway. For the first 10 feet of driveway away from our garage there is pretty much a zero slope, thus when it rains the water just ponds. After complaining about this our builder sent the same sub out who did the original pour and the repair job. He did not water test the area or anything. He said it's fine and doesn't need to be repaired. No shock there! Anyway, I am back because this weekend we are going to write up our complaints. We did ask a city code inspector if there are any guidelines in our area about site drainage, etc. Again, he did not want to stop by to look at it. He said there are only codes against water ponding next to the foundation, but this doesn't apply to water standing on concrete next to the foundation. Our city still uses the IRC-2000 ed. So, I have no idea if there is anything in there states there should be a required slope away from the foundation. It just makes no sense to me that water can be allowed to pond for days at a time on your driveway. During heavy rains the water is also leaking into our garage. It's just frustrating to have a new build home with this obvious problem. It makes it worse when we are surrounded by hundreds of homes by the same builder and none has anything close to this same standing water problem. I've submitted some pics. Any advice or suggestions before we start our complaint process will be appreciated! Thanks!!
