Empire has made us as first time homebuyers, the most disappointed regretful, unhappy people you can imagine. Do not buy from this builder- Do your research and find one that actually cares. Our front door leaks water- our basement (4 month old home) has mold growing in the insulation already- (yes, we have been running a dehumidifier from day one) They had our house key for 4 months to come in and fix all the other issues, like the trim work which is disgusting, or our front door, or the grout work of our backsplash, and did nothing. only to find out when we asked for the key back that they couldn't locate it. Yes, the lost our house key- and we had to wait over a week before they considered replacing the lock for us. They service guys showed up a half hour late to tell us they didn't have the part they needed, and that they would come back the next day- all this missed time at work hits the pockets really hard. If you want to see pictures of the "beautiful" work this builder does, please email me at email@example.com- If anything will stop you from purchasing a new home from these people, it will be these pictures! I don't want to see any other person go through what we are going through right now.
