    We have had way too many problems with a new home for a builder that claims to be quality. Some of our problems were leaky roof, floor pops continually, window leak when it rains, broken bricks used, broken trusses on roof, poor paint quality on walls had crack in garage wall repaired 17 times before got fixed, used presure washer inside the garage which was sheet rock caused all the paint to bubble and peel of the walls, backed into the gargage door and knocked it off the track, Put down tile floor in kitchen and in front of stove the tile was pieced together in middle of square and it ran at an angle, they tried to cover it up with putty and after mopping the floor for a few months it exposed itself, it all had to be taken up and replaced. Americas Home Place had to be forced by our Attorney to come to our home take up all the hardwood, carpeting, and vinyl floor and screw down the osb board to the floor joist to try to fix the floor popping problem. Under the house they proped the floor joist up with a 2x4. We have reported them to the North Carolina Attorney General's Office. This place needs to be put out of business.

    My husband worked for a contractor that builds for them. That contractor promised him $14 an hour and more when they see what he knew. He worked with them for 3 days. He ended up getting paid $160 for 25 hours which averaged out at $6.40/hour. He is having a hard time getting his tools back. He knew more than anyone on the job. He said that they did things in the strangest ways. They couldn't even figure out the simplest truss roofs. They were trying to strike a hip into a ridge that was the opposite way of what it should have been. They hire illegals that won't complain and pack 9 people in a truck with one in the back and one on the console and others laying on peoples laps in the back seat and ride them up Interstate 85 from Georgia to South and North Carolina everyday. That was extremly dangerous. They have a bunch of flunkies that don't have a clue how to really build a house. If they can't build a roof with trusses right imagine what a stick built home would be like. I don't know about America's Home Place's other contractors but the one he worked for (for 3 days) did shoddy work. They just want to get it done quickly and move on to the next one regardless of the craftsmanship put into it. They say they can't keep good help and that is why they have had an add in the paper for 7 years. They could keep good help if they wouldn't screw them and pay them what they are worth and pay them what is promised. When you don't care about your employees they aren't going to get the best work out of them.
