mitchell and best homebuilder did not guarantee their home

Dear sir or madam, I am a resident of the Kentlands, Gaithersburg, MD who owns a 5 year-old

townhouse built by Mitchell and Best. They did a poor job repairing brickwork at the stoop in front of the house and don't claim responsiblity.

The mortar used for the repair and the bricks are falling apart. We have contacted them several times already and their explanation is that 'warranty has expired". The also said that it is caused by ice-melting salt, however, we all know that these salts causes only efluorescence, and that mortar falls apart this soon because of poor craftmanship. This has been confirmed by the expert opion of an independent mason. Just 5 years of warranty for brickwork is all that a homebuilder offers? Although it is not much money involved, the fact that a builder that claims such a reputation of 'quality homes' does not stand by the quality of their work is upsetting. I was wondering if your organization can make other homeowners and potential

buyers aware that buyinga Mitchell and Best home means their bricks may fall

apart 5 years after the house was built. Their reputation should not be advertised as such if it is not true. House prices go up based on the reputation of a builder Thanks for your attention ot his letter Javier C Javier C
