Additional Notes

Complaint: Shoemaker Homes was contracted to build our home in Madison, MS. We did not own the home until the day of closing on April 2, 2015. When they laid the sod in March during a drought, they neglected to water it, causing it to die before closing on our home. The sod remains dead and because of that, is now overrun with only unsightly weeds and crabgrass. Because of their absolute negligence during the time that they were responsible for the home and all things included in the contract, we are now faced with possibly having to completely resod our entire yard.

Desired Settlement: We would like for Shoemaker Homes to accept responsibility for their oversight and do what is right by having our yard resodded or at the very least, have a reputable landscaping company try to repair the yard.

Business Response: We wish for all of our homeowner's to be happy with their new home.
The sod at *** ********* ** * in Madison was watered adequately prior to closing.
After closing while in transit to nearby job sites of other houses we have under construction, it was noticed that ******* and *******'s yard was not being watered adequately. We do not warranty sod for this reason. Our policy is noted in our New Home Orientation.


***** *********

Consumer Response:

Complaint: ********

I am rejecting this response because:
     The sod was dead before we even closed on the home. Please note the attached photo which was taken on April 3rd, the day after closing on our home. It did not die after closing because WE did not water it. It was dead before we closed, during which time Shoemaker Homes was responsible for it, and the photo is proof of their negligence.


******* *****

Business Response: The yard was adequately watered prior to closing.  We have pictures, documentation and water bills to illustrate this.  Shoemaker Homes does not warranty sod because we have no control over how the sod will be cared for after closing.  Also please see attached punchlist where there is no mention of dead sod.
Unfortunately we simply disagree.
