My Husband and I purchased a home from Tidewater Homes in March, 2016. Shortly after moving into the home our flooring began separating from the slab. It was caused by excessive moisture penetrating the slab. Over time, theproblem has gotten worse. Moisture from the slab has also caused excessive mold growth. It is now May, 2018. Tidewater has not fixed the problem. We retained an engineer who advised us that Tidewater Homes did not place a vapor barrier under the entire slab as required by the building code. When I made Facebook posts about our terrible experience with Tidewater Homes, they sued meand my Husband for Defamation. We retained a lawyer. Based on the advice ofour engineer and lawyer, we filed a counterclaim against Tidewater for the construction defects. Tidewater accused us of filing a frivolous counterclaim. They filed a motion to have the counterclaim dismissed and threatened to seek sanctions against us. Earlier this week, the Judge denied Tidewater's motion to dismiss our counterclaim. In the mean time, excessivemoisture is still penetrating our slab; our flooring is still separated from the slab; and we still have excessive mold due to the excess moisture. Choosing Tidewater Homes is the worst mistake we've ever made.

He Did a great job with our backsplash in our kitchen. he showed up on time stayed until the job was completed and was very professional. I did some digging and there are no police reports or complaints with the police department about him scamming this person below. Parker homes did the work I requested and even saved me some money when they didn't use all materials and I could take them back for a refund.
If you are looking for a new home builder, look no further. I think you will be hard pressed to find another builder who will build you a better home. We visited multiple homes by various builders priced at a similar price point at different phases of construction before deciding on Collins Builders. All the builders we considered final product looked great. However, the process of getting there, well, lets just say, many builders 'covered up' mistakes on a regular basis. Collins appeared to get it right the first time or got any mistakes corrected before it got covered up. Most builders we spoke with only required a boundary survey. Collins Builders did a boundary, tree, topo and elevation survey before construction. They also had an environmental engineer dig test bores were the foundation of the home was to be positioned to ensure that the soil would support the weight of a new home. This was done to help reduce/prevent foundation settling in the future. During the design process, my wife and I met with Ashley Collins and Danny Britt . We had our own house plans drawn up by an architect. Danny and Ashley were very knowledgeable and easy to work with during this process. They provided good input, suggestions to complement/enhance our home design. Steve Boure handled the oversight of our day to day build process. Steve did a great job ensuring that we got a quality built home! We cant thank him enough. Job well done Steve! He was on site most days of construction. The few days that he was not able to be on site, Danny and/or Ashley Collins were. Our home was completed on time and on budget. Steve Boure ensured any and all issues were resolved quickly and to our satisfaction. It has been 12 months since we completed our home. We have only experienced 2 minor problems during ownership. Both problems were corrected quickly to our and to our satisfaction. I highly recommend Collins Builders.
Susan Severson!!!This is an agent with some real common sense and zeal. She has a great attitude, while also being very nice and friendly. She has a great amount of experience and education, but more than that she is just real. I like how well she knows her local and surrounding communities. She is very on the ball too, getting back to you very fast with updates and always answering her phone. Buying and selling can be difficult, and with a teammate like her on your side it is so much more seamless. I am excited to finally have the whole process behind me, and a new friend. Thank You
Poor customer service and zero follow-thru. Emails go unanswered and staff is unprofessional. Reached out to Broker/Owner to provide feedback regarding my experience with Christy Pintar and even that email went unanswered. You would think a company founded on Military values would respect such. A true disappointment.
If your considering this builder think again. The same board members previously owned and operated Mercedes Homes which eventually went bankrupt due to the number of home owner claims and issues. I myself purchased a Mercedes Home in 2003 which resulted in the builder failing to pay the warranty company the money that I paid for the 10 year warranty. Only after filing a claim in year nine of my ten year warranty did I find the company kept the funds went bankrupt and I was out of luck. All I can say is "Caveat Emptor" with this group after a little research I didn't have to look too hard to find my issue was a small one compare to the others.
Called them about a roof leak on Friday. Called me back and was at my house on Monday to fix the problem. Great service and reasonable. If I ever need a new roof I know where to go. The other roofing companies on the island did not call back or promised to call back to schedule an appointment but never did. Typical island service.
From the time I closed on my new home with seda construction in 2004 until today, 2014, I have had nothing but problems. Poor construction quality inside and out. Stucco, and windows were never installed properly and now I'm stuck with an un sellable house. I have spent thousands of dollars to hire professionals to determine my house has to be torn down to the studs and redone. I no longer have homeowners insurance ,and seda will not stand behind their warranty. Buyer beware!
