In one forum, I read where someone was actually feeling bad that they gave Mattamy high scores in the J.D. Powerís survey they were asked to fill out. They were perfectly happy with their home but, after reading submissions of others on various forums, felt that they had just been lucky and that Mattamy really didnít deserve the high rating they gave them.

You get a house inspector to give you support on the large items but when it comes to cosmetic, just how far can you go. And, I guess the cosmetic part depends on just how much you want for the investment you made in the home. When you paid $500,000. for a home you probably want a house that reflects that input of your money. I mean, why pay that for a house that looks $250,000 in quality?

Some people have lists in the 100ís in terms of reported faults on their PDIís, 30 day and 1 year inspections. Others have only a few. Is that because the house is perfect or some people are just more picky than others?

I offer three examples and ask you, the reader Ė would you put them on your inspection list as sub-standard? And, they are examples that were done by Mattamy professional craftsmen...

There must be somekind of inspection racket in our neighborhood because every house that is sold seems to wind up getting new sidewalks from the same contractor. And yet the new owners wind up having a stream of contractors during the first years of occupancy-not the same unlike the sidewalk guys.
