Housing Foundation Problems Found In Copperas Cove Homes

Posted:
COPPERAS COVE -

Some brand new homes in Copperas Cove are being deemed structural failures while homeowners are saying that foundation issues and soil problems are to blame.

Homeowners in the House Creek North housing edition in Copperas Cove are saying that after numerous attempts from builders to patch the problems and multiple structural engineers checking the property, their homes are cracking and crumbling around them.

Angie Vanlandingham is one of those homeowners, and she and her family moved into their brand new home back in November of last year.

Now, less than a year later, after finding dozens of cracked tiles, large visible holes in the walls, gaps between molding, and doors that will not close, Vanlandingham says she's been told foundation problems are causing her home to be deemed a complete structural failure, which is something she was never warned about prior to buying the home.

"The most stressful and frustrating part is waking up every day and wondering what I'm going to find, because every day I'm going to find something," Vanlandingham said. "The house is bowing, and therefore, it's causing everything to pull apart."

Vanlandingham says that she is no longer trying to get her builder, Neely Homes, to fix the problems. Instead, she is working with the 2-10 Homebuyers Warranty company. They're saying it could still be another 1 to 2 months before they can figure out what to do next.

"It's frustrating as a homeowner to have to wait knowing that this house is continuing to drop and sink," Vanlandingham said. "Ultimately, we don't want this house. We don't want to call this house our home, because it's not. We want to go start over somewhere else and it be the right way, and hopefully we'll enjoy a home the way it's supposed to."

Vanlandingham says that the best possible outcome would be for the builder to buy back the home so that she and her family can ultimately move somewhere else.

Neely homes was reached for comment on the situation, but they declined.
