Bristlecone Homes — Home builder
We attended the Christmas Show Market/Builder Expo this past weekend and some discussion ensued with this ‘builder’ we had run into this 'builder' a little while back. The discussion was along the lines of how/what product was cycling through their video display. The representative not only mentioned at the show but in previous discussion that they had not produced the builds/houses showing on their display/brochures, nor have they built in the past …. They are a financial group that intends to ‘sub’ out to builders they deem fit to partner up with.
We have a problem with this practice on so many levels;
- The fact they were approved as a builder on the Alberta Municipal Affairs website without proper documentation filled out, there is no mention of previous builds in Alberta or anywhere, no quantities on how many are mentioned .. in fact page 3 of required paperwork is not filled in at all.
- SRK is mentioned as a potential previous incarnation of this company but that doesn’t appear to ever have existed, in this province or country.
- The phone number on the application appears arbitrary and random, 058 area code doesn’t appear even as a potential dyslexic entry.
- Progressive Warranty has mentioned no previous work with this group, only that they may be in the process of the approval process.
The illusion that we feel was being portrayed at the home show of this ‘approved builder’ is misleading and egregious and we would like to know what Municipal affairs is to do about this or any other builders that appear to be taking advantage of what is already a stressful and challenging time for all involved in this rebuild.
