How hard to push builder on two issues after move in
We moved in on a tight schedule that left builder with a lengthy punch list. We were OK with this and for the most part builder has taken care of everything on the punch list items. We are a few months into our 1 year warranty.
This is a fairly high end home/quasi custom home with superior finishes. The builder has been super easy to work with, truly a good guy and very attentive to all ur requests...to my eye the workmanship was top notch.
But There are two nagging issues that have to been resolved. The exterior had to be repaired due to a splotchy stucco patch that could not be matched. Problem is, they only repainred part of the building giving it a two tone appearance. The effect is subtle and you can't see it in direct sunlight, but I see it in the shade and drives me a bit crazy.
Second issue, we have stained concrete floor on bottom level which are fairly beautiful. The problem is the concrete seems to pick up stains very easy and I'm not hundred percent certain it was sealed correctly.
The builder has been responsive to date to everything but the above two issues. I don't know whether he's ignoring me and going I'll forget them, or is trying to schedule the repairs or maybe he just thinks I'm bonkers and there's nothing wrong. Honestly, if he just came UT and walked the property with me and told me he disagreed, I'd probably just drop it. But not hearing anything is a bit maddening.
I don't want to use up whatever complaint capital I have left (if any, but I don't think I've been bad).
The home is unique also and the guilder has asked for us to open it up on a number of occaisions to potential new clients and others...we've alway complied with his requests. Up until now our relationship has been great and we really love our home...just want it to be perfect. Am I expecting too much?
