The appearance of our home when we bought it was excellent. Little did we or our inspector know that cheap materials and substandard construction were used to build the house.
Unbelievably, after 6 years, the 2 x 8 joists under the deck rotted since the company used untreated wood, even though they knew that the wood would be continually exposed to moisture. Other homes nearby had the same problem. They covered it up by painting the joists so the inspector could not detect the poor construction practice. Moreover, our driveway cracked and spalled after 4 years of exposure and NO we did not use salt on it...
Further, the paint used was the cheapest one could buy and did not stand up to the weather. The did not prime bare wood on the deck rails and the paint quickly flaked off.
Calls to Standard Pacific were not returned and when we persisted we got a brush-off. Do not buy from Standard Pacific.
