California Builder RW HERTEL & SONS, Inc. builds Defective homes, Sues his buyers if they complain of Leaks, MOLD and Defects is UNDER Investigation's for building Shoddy Homes, and Criminal Acts related to illegal dumping of Construction Dirt into the Clean Rivers of California. EAGLE POINT DO A search before you buy a Hertel home and get it inspected for MOLD, Leaks and other defects.. Be warned they will sue you if you find leaks in your Home !!!!!!

I know we bought a home from Hertel and it leaks and then we found mold, broken pipes, leaking windows, leaking roofs ceiling you name it the homes Hertel builds leak and they will NOT fix them they lie, cheat and cover up, I know of several owners who got sued for telling them the builder (Hertel) of the defects and Mold and leaks Hertel then sues to silence them so my advise and opinion is NOT to BUY any home built by Hertel even as they sneak into Oregon to build under different names Hertel is a corrupt and lying cheating builder do not be scamed..

Many of us home owners in Cental Coast of California have been screwed by Ron Hertel and his Buddy Bob Fowler and Jim Burns, so join the club good news is a Grand Jury is investigating them for Fraud, Theft, tax Evasion etc.. so hand tough there Lawyer is also under a Criminal Investigation as well it takes time so just gather any evidence you have and send it to the CSLB under the Hertel investigation or to the Dept. of Justice Civil Rights white collar division in DC they will contact you.

More Hertel leaking and cracking homes today Hertel had to break off the major part of the foundation of 1753 Singletree Ct. owner Frank Luna says the homes are defective and leaking because the homes are built on a marsh and now the Builder is having to re-do the slab since it is causing the homes to sink in the marsh. so much for RW hertel's building homes. Rancho Obispo Homes are a mess with leaks and mold two more homes now have more leaks and mold after the builder was told by CSLB to replace all the defective roofs. the new ones are worse than ever.

If your house is defective in some way, you should seek legal help. I used http://www.homelemonlaw.com for my defective house. They do a great job and even give you a free review just for calling.

I was wondering when this builder would be exposed for his " Crappy" Building of Homes and Town Homes.

As one of his many victims, it is of no surprise he is finally get his do. I know far too many people who have been cheated and lied to by him from Santa Maria, CA to San Jose, CA and then some. I have since learned he is trying to dupe and scam the people once again. So in searching i found you thank you and i hope to be called as a Witness against RW Hertel and his lying scams in the building industry.

The State of California has a website where you can check the status of a contractor's license. It also has an area for checking a contrator's reputation. Go to: http://www.cslb.ca.gov/ and click on the "Check A License or His Reputation" link.

THANK YOU, I used your information and found several CSLB issues against Hertel and I called them as well they informed me they have a still open many cases against them and an ongoing investigation. RW Hertel is the "Target" of a multi agency enforcement action with several State, Local and Federal Investigations. They apparently according to one investigator are one if not the most corrupt and dishonest substandard builder in California.

I was also told that back in May they started a phony front company called 5 Mile Bridge for a "New Wine operation to hide the money they stole over the defective homes they built. Ron Hertel Bob Fowler are the two principals and RW Hertel & Sons other crook Tom Habbick is suppose to run it. If it is like there building it will FAIL and the Wine will be just as defective as their MOLD ridden homes

Probably that is where Hertel got caught building substandard homes and is facing legal action and that is where so many owners got cheated by him. Makes sense to me
