Our trouble started ever since we hired Renaissance custom homes Albuquerque, we saw a house that we liked from the look of it and called the number and met the builder Gary Padilla, we thought he was the main person who is going to built our dream home, we went on line and gather all sort of construction and home pic to show him what we wanted in our new home to have, he gladly agreed to every thing and said he is very selective and only works for few people and he is not there for the money and we believed him .
we had may be 3 meetings at his house and we talked about the contract and stuff, any way house started getting built,
first stage we had concrete poured but next day it was full of cracked we showed our concern especially since we paid extra $ 3000 for rebar process so we didntt get cracks on concrter slab and mind that Gary is the one who recommended us to pay extra for rebar so concrete slab will be crack free, at that time he said it would be taken care of at the end of the construction but now he refuse to do any thing for this.
second step the lumber process, we ordered 8 feet door but the house frame was for 6.8 feet so we called several times to inform Gary and no answer, after several months of this agonizing time during the construction process we found out Gary Padilla is a second hand car salesman and this builder buissiness is only his side activity to make extra money, if we knew that we would have gone to some one who does building house for living and have some experience.At this point we should have fired the builder from his job but we thought we were too much in it and wanted to just get over this .
they hired subcontractor who did not speak english and not sure if any one had any legal status to even work in USA, we could not communicate with the subcontractors if we see any thing going in wrong direction with the construction and to make thing worse we could not get hold of any body from our builder, we had to check on our house every day to see what happening and check on thing knowing that we paid builder $95000 to manage construction of our house.
they hired cleaning crew to clean our house and now all the windows are scrached up and house need more money to fix it up then we can afford.
we still have alot of things need fixing, we have still to see any recipts for thing he paid for, we got loan for more then 700 thousand for the house seems like most of the money went some where else but our house, we are seeking some legal help also and process of moving to dream home has changed to a horror story ...
now it is passed a year and our house still not ready and we have to get out of this apartment we live in.
All this trouble just because we did not research much before we hired our builder to built our dream home...
I hope with this notice some people can learn and do things differently and be safe and find some one compatable.
God Bless us all
