I am wondering if anyone on here has a Centex Home in the Wesley Oaks, NC division. I bought my house in Nov 2007 and last night I was walking in my kitchen and my heel of my boot went through the vinyl in the floor leaving a nice hole in it. I almost hurt myself and I thank god it was me and not someone visiting my house. Who do I contact with Centex to get this fixed and has anyone else experienced this in their house. I looked in the hole that was made and its nothing but dirt??? I was told we were on a cement slab? I am open for any suggestions. Thank you.

Go to the Centex website. There is a link there for homeowners to put in a warranty request.

Default Did it get fixed? I am also an owner of Wesley Oaks

The house is supposed to be built in Cement Slab!

Did Centex tricked us?

Keep me posted.

You created a new ID to bash Wesley Oaks again and this is the best you can come up with, lol? You got the zip code right, so are you trying to sell your house in a competing neighborhood?

Are you saying that Centex invented a new super glue that will attach vinyl to dirt for over two whole years, without coming up? I say two years because there weren't any new homes available during the date you specified, it must have been an early resale, not that your story is true.

Have you ever seen how vinyl is installed? Was it dirt or mud or frozen solid clay, as we've had all of those conditions in the last week? Was your dirt floor harder in the summer, when the clay bakes or softer during rainy spells? Is your carpet nailed into the dirt, as well? Did the builder do an amazing job at leveling the clay, so that there wasn't a single indent or soft spot, until now?

Very funny post but it's funnier that people responded in a serious manner to it. Next time, at least say it was tile, that's my suggestion. You're welcome.

Glad you posted this! I'm buying a Centex home and was seriously like WTF?! I didn't understand how that could happen and now I know it CAN'T. LOL. Thanks.

I was going to suggest taking up more of the vinyl floor to see what you find. Perhaps the concrete slab deteriorated at that spot. In fact, I would certainly take up more vinyl to make sure that I didn't have a vinyl-on-dirt kitchen floor. You are lucky you don't have a crawlspace, or you might have fallen right through!

Guess that's why some people refer to Centex homes as dirt-cheap.
