Engle Homes' Poor Quality and Construction Has Lead to Misery 10 years later.
It's too late for us; we went with Engle Homes because of the location. There were other builders but we ended up choosing Engle.
Ten years later, it never ceases to amaze me how cheap Engle Homes is. As an example, our shutters flew off after a few years. Repair guys couldn't believe it and asked who our builder was. When we said, "Engle" they weren't surprised.
Today, we found out that we have a crawl space in our closet that can be opened. Behind there is a spot with light fixtures, etc... Yet, we never knew about this since Engle slapped together a piece of wood and covered it up. This area was meant to have drywall and flooring. Instead, there was a 3 foot board which was screwed in - not even nailed. It took us a half hour to undo the screws. The reason that we had to go back there was because of a leaky roof!
This brings me to another thing: They ended up hanging our gutters so that they drain towards our house! We have had to pour money into contractors to get this fixed. Additionally, they noticed that shingles have not been put tightly and Engle never did put water proofing under the shingles.
If you have a choice, you should avoid Engle at all costs. I haven't outlined our other headaches with these guys, but now with the advent of ratings systems, I hope that the word spreads.
