MY builder's brick guys did a horrendous job. Is there anything I can do?
I am buying from KB Homes, and we are about halfway through building the house, and we gave $1000 in earnest money. The construction manager has said there is no chance of them redoing the work. The brickwork looks as if it was done by kindergartners. Absolutely unacceptable. The house stands out from the rest of the development like a sore thumb. Can anyone tell me who to contact for some relief? I am in Houston, Texas.

Yes, you can hire another contractor and have the work redone. Take photos of the work and contact the parent company if there is one. Hold payment on further work until this is resolved. Get a written estimate from at least two contractors and include the state of the work done in their estimates. Have them... More
