Did KB Home use floor tiles for the exterior of these expensive houses!?  Did they have a warehouse full of discontinued tile and didn’t know what to do with them – so they stuck them on the outside of a house?  We’re going to sue the subcontractors for all the defects in your new million dollar home, KB Home tells owners.  That may be true.  So what?  KB Home is suing subcontractors in 46 Florida subdivisions.  For whose benefit?  My house still leaks like a sieve after being supposedly fixed.    (San Jose million dollar houses built as bad as the rest of us).

Owners in Orlando learned their KB Home houses were not waterproof after tropical storm winds gusted in Orlando. Same old story.  KB Home’s answer?  We’re suing the stucco contractor.  They sure are.  But for whose benefit?   They sued in Vero Beach & owners still got cheap patches and houses the kept leaking.  KB Home – ruining lives all over the state.

The same could happen in a KB Home built wrong.  Financial ruin. Read more

slabcrackCalifornia –  Owners in this Lathrop community had cracks in the slabs and walls. One owner was so tired of KB Home’s unsuccessful repairs that he created several websites to showcase his San Joaquin home.  He has a massive slab crack that appears to need major construction to repair.  His site is gone.  But see  California Slab Cracks.         North Carolina –  This owner was so frustrated she contacted WCNC NBC in Charlotte (here).  Her crack ran the length of the house and KB Home offered to caulk it (!), but then even reneged on that. CRACK LENGTH OF HOUSE

Florida’s Attorney General Pam Bondi’s settlement with KB Home excludes 1/2 of  the Carriage Lake WPTV KB Home AG Settlementneighborhood with an arbitrary cutoff date – even though the Attorney General’s office knew that repairs to stucco were incorrect.
