Traton Homes LLC has applied for a variance to build next door to my house. I concerned about the debris and poor construction. Any suggestions
They appear connected in Cobb County. They destroyed my neighborhood and decreased the value of my house by $300k by building houses that are $150k quality and selling them for
340k. I paid $689k from a much higher quality builder. So now the neighborhood has 32 high quality almost 4,000 sf houses and then 33 cheap falling apart $330 houses that should have sold for $150k. The quality of homeowners is night and day too. One is a bunch of tatoo wearing twenty year olds who let their children run wild at the pool while they get drunk. The other are middle age professionals.

The only code guy willing to give them citations is the grading and environmental control guy. He gave them 30 or so a day when we called. The rest of the inspectors must have been on there payroll because those house do not met code. Traton uses illegal workers who are laborers and not craftsmen. Their supervisors don't know what they are doing. They prebuild their walls off site, like a trailer factory. Except they have the quality standards of the cheapest trailer factory. They buy the cheapest materials they find on sale, but then their illegals can't read the instructions. For example they got a deal on real cedar shingles. Their illegal pAinters think they have to be painted like hardiplank . So they paint the Cedar shingles with watered down cheap paint. Wrong ! Now we find out that in some subdivisions they put the individual cedar shingles over foam insulation sheets they are falling off. You install individual shingles over obx or plywood sheets. But they are use to running hardiplank imitation shingles directly over foam insulation. In other subdivisions I saw them use old fashioned tar paper instead of TYVEX. Traton is a slimy builder. They are now suing the Homeowners who tried to take them to arbitration as their contract requires.

I am a expert witness in construction law cases. I would volunteer to help any homeowner against these slimes.

Traton used faulty siding and faulty pipes in our subdivision. We found out that those products were known to be bad before construction was started & they used it anyway. Would NEVER recommend Traton. They don't care about their customers, just about lining their own pockets.

We bought a Traton home in 2007 in Douglas County, Ga. Never again will I buy a Traton home. All of the appliances have been replaced including the garbage disposal and kitchen faucet. Much of the wood around many of the windows has been replaced.It was all rotted. We had to get the exterior painted last year and now this coming spring, we are going to have to replace the concrete driveway because it has cracked and sunk. The front porch is sloped wrong so that rain pools up against the front oof the house. Oh, I forgot we had to replace all the gutters since the ones they provided had a very poor capacity and sayed clogged with leaves. The inadequae gutters resulted in rain leaking into the house. Traton is really good at grabbing the money and running leaving you holding the bag! The construction site was incredibly filthy from foodwrappers/garbage and the workers even left a spilled can of coke in a drawer in the butler's pantry. Buyer beware when dealing with Traton.
