Clayton Homes - Purchase Complaint

Buying a home was probably one of the first biggest experiences of my life. Being a single mom at that time, you want to give your children everything. Trust is given and you pray that you will be taken of. I found my mobile home at the Clayton Homes in New Iberia, LA in 2009. My experience was not a pleasant one. First, there was tear in my linoleum, in front of my stove that was covered with a piece of carpet. They came back to fix it. Then my light fixture by the back door was not screwed in properly so my wall started swelling by my light switch. They fixed that. Today my husband pulls out the...

Clayton Homes - South Carolina, Pelzer - Power

I was told that my power would maybe take 2 or 3 days to get turned on. Its been 10 days. I was told that it could take another 3 weeks. When I call the home office all I get is the run around of its out of our hands. When I call the power company they told me that Clayton made the mistake. My sales Rep was very nice up to the time we signed the paperwork. Now he is nowhere to be found. I also had a deck added to my home. The stairs are uneven and not level. Was told that they would be fixed the next day. That was a week ago. The list goes on and on.

Will never buy from Clayton again...

Clayton Homes - Colorado, Denver - cannot get my downpayment back

My family put in for an application to buy a Clayton home in March. The customer service seemed great and very helpful at the time. We live 3 hours from Denver so we were not able to come down often but we made the trip in early April to put the down payment of $2500 down. They gladly accepted the money and immediately deposited it. After leaving numerous messages and no returned calls we were frustrated and called the mortgage company. The paper work Clayton had submitted was not complete even though we were told numerous times everything is good we were going to be getting our house. I again had...

I purchased a Clayton home in 2011. It's the biggest piece of JUNK known to man. Floors are warped. Tile is coming away from the wall. Also has nails coming through it. Footings were not laid before brick foundation was laid. Siding is fading. you can hear birds chirp inside. Windows won't open. Have had to replace all faucets. Toilet seats and sinks which are made of plastic. If you want something to live in don't buy from this company. Was told I had a year warranty when sold the home. At first the came right out and fixed things. Then I was told they had been out twenty two times....

My name is David. I purchased my "cardboard box" in June 2010 and have nothing but problems ever since. Not just little things, serious problems. Everything was great when I purchased it. People would call me and they couldn't hurry fast enough to get me to sign the paperwork and get me in here. That was the second everything changed. When we moved in, the dishwasher had to be replaced immediately. I could bore you with my story but I know you have experienced the exact same, but I will tell you some of my problems: Central Air breaking, Multiple problems with the toilet...

Clayton Homes - Virginia, Fredericksburg - Lies, Delays, Extra Costs

Complaint Rating:  80 % with 5 votes
We got lies, delays, and $10, 000 in extra costs after contracting for a mobile/modular home to be placed on our undeveloped property. The contract called for a turnkey operation that would take 2-3 months and include everything needed for us to move in. It was like a bad car salesman movie. They told us everything we wanted to hear and we thought it was all in the contact. We sold our existing house and rented for the few months needed on the clayton home. You might say we shouldn't have sold until we had the new place, but in the poor market we had to sell when we could & we needed the money...

Clayton Homes - Mobile Home

I purchased a mobile home, 2010 mobile, from Clayton Homes in Paducah, KY. First they promised a 2 week delivery, which turned into 2 months. They never put the underlayment under the mobile, they never sealed all the open holes around the plumbing, furnace, etc. The mice literally invaded my home. The mobile home was nothing but problems. The thin 3/8 drywall had cracks throughout the entire mobile ceiling's. The bath tubs were cracked, they never chaulked around the sinks or showers, the paper cabinets were all pilling within a few months, the laminate flooring had a nail left under it. After...

My husband and I have bought our first home in June 2010. The salesperson that we had helped us tremendously than when they delivered our home is when the problems started!! The people who set up our home put down sand instead of limerock or gravel and now the whole back of our house is washing downhill. The smoke detectors are falling off the ceilings. The front door is not hung right and sometimes when it storms our door blows open. When the people were putting the trim and the inside of the house together they tracked mud on the carpet and I have scrubbing the carpets since we moved in to get...

Clayton Homes - North Carolina, Wilkesboro - Terrible construction

My husband and I purchased a 2011 Clayton Home. The house was constructed in TN. Our home was built by workers that apparently have NO pride in their workmanship. I really don't know where to start. First of all they built the house in a week. That should have been a big red flag. None of the doors or windows in the house are square. The floors and the ceilings have ridges in them. The cupboards are not square so the drawers will not fit right. The counter top in the kitchen has chips and cracked edges. All the knobs on the drawers are crooked. There are several wallboards that are cracked....

Clayton Homes - Colorado, Evans - home water heater

Clayton Homes sold me a used mobile home that they had refurbished. One of the things they did was replace the water heater. unknown to me at the time, they had actually rigged a regular residential water heater instead of a closed-air mobile home water heater, which is not only illegal, but is extremely dangerous. They were trying to save time and money by cutting corners, which could have killed my entire family. Because of the way they rigged it and failed to install proper fresh air intake, there was not enough ventilation for proper combustion for the pilot light, which caused carbon monoxide...

I was a retailer for Clayton Homes. I have several different manufactures & Clayton promised to offer the world to my buyers. They are Full of $H!T. The homes are junk, I had nothing but complaints from all my Clayton buyers! AND a lawsuit! The 1st Ever in over 10 years in Business. Thanks Clayton!

I had to remove & install entire roofs & siding on homes just set. That's right, brand new home, rip off & replace roofs/siding so I wouldn't have a problem 6 months down the road. The PA plant is as bad as it gets. The worst of the worst. They Lie, Cheat & Steal & leave the builders/retailers...

I purchased a clayton home. If your thinking about purchasing a home from clayton homes please stay away from these frauds. Buy yourself a real stick built house. MY doors need replaced after 2 years. I bought the home in 2008 and the doors will not shut. I would call them up to complain, but they would just replace it with the same garbage.

I told them I wanted a small deck built on the front. I told them a deck and they put a concrete slab out front. When I hear deck I think of wood. I was going to tear down or add on in the future. I now have to get a jack hammer to remove the...

Made a deposit on a 32' X 64' Riverland "floor model" home, spent 3 months looking for a suitable site, negotiated and made an acceptable offer on the land with deposit, was approved for mortgage financing with rates acceptable to me.

This is a 2008 model, fully furnished that we were told they were "looking to move because a newer show model was coming". List was 129, 900. Sale price was 99, 900. The lot is already cleared, has city water and adjacent elec, culvert and driveway already in, needs to have septic (modad) installed and a pad.

All-in all, with...
