Clayton Homes — 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. All the ceramic sinks and toilets are crooked. The picture window is sitting at a slant and coming loose from the inside on the marble sills.We noticed the hallway wall did not look right and the boards they used throughout the house are warped. The floors squeak. We expected some minor things to be wrong;recaulking, loose battons. But the way it is looking they are going to have to tear my house apart and practically start over. It makes us literally sick to our stomaches to see this happening. The dealer we went through is being cooperative but it does not change the fact our home was built by uncaring employees at the White Plains facility. The repair man from the dealership has already been here twice and is on his way today. The only thing that has been fixed is the crooked sinks and the knobs. There is much more that is wrong with the home. Our advice: Do your research before purchasing a home and do not buy from Clayton Mobile homes.
