The Niblock homes are very nice and are being sold in Huntersville, NC at their Latta development. I have searched the internet to get some input on the quality of their construction, how they are to deal with especially in month 11 after you own one of their homes but have not found to much on them. Please provide information if you can.

They are pretty good to deal with.

I agree -- I like them as a builder and in my experience they have been responsive when issues have arisen for my clients.

I built with & live in a Niblock Home. Can't believe it's 2 yrs already. They are excellent to deal with. I highly recommend them to anyone.

Feel free to PM me if you have any questions.

from the wife,
We bought a Niblock home in Oct. It was a resale that was only 2 years old. I have not had one complaint. So far everything is very good. Most of the neighbors that surround us went thru the building process w/ them and they said that it was not bad building w/ Niblock. Good Luck

I didn't build with Niblock, but they were my second-choice builder at Anniston in Davison. They are among the best I've found at the "non-custom" game locally (although you could lightly customize some of their floorplans if you didn't find one you liked).

That's true, they are a semi-custom builder & are easy to work with as far as changes go. I know of some people in my subdivision that bumped out & removed walls & doors to get what they wanted out of their floor plan.

They have a new community in Mooresville called Ashlyn Creek. I was there the other day checking out the model, it's a new floorplan for them & it's gorgeous.

Niblock built a fine home at one time. Their quality control is lax, their follow-up is non-existent, and you really have to know what you want in a home if you use them as they do not incorporate many things a homeowner comes to expect in a home. If you don't catch it before you close, you end up paying a contractor to come back and do things that you took for granted in a house.

They are very flexible as to their designs and will work with you if you are willing to pay for it. I know, we built a Niblock home.

Sorry to hear you had a negative experience with Niblock. Just curious, what "things that a homeowner expects" are you referring to??

A light over the kitchen sink for starters. That is a given I would think. Also, a light over the stovetop if you are not having the microwave over the stove. Lights were placed "around" the kitchen island instead of above the island where you actually use the work surface. A light above the shower in the master instead of one in the middle of the room - makes for a very dark corner where the shower stall is. Use of the correct paint on horizontal shelving - does everything you have on a ledge, shelf, or windowsill stick to it if left there a certain length of time? All the Niblock homes in my neighborhood have this problem. A shower head that is not facing the door of the shower stall so you get all wet just trying to turn it on. I also expect a warm master closet and not be told by the hvac contractor that if I want the closet to be warm, I should leave the master closet door open in the winter. UNACCEPTABLE! I have been running a space heater in the closet in winter since we moved in three years ago!

We have had the bottoms of the closet doors fall out, there are numerous dings in the trim work that was just painted over instead of a nice smooth piece of trim. Since they do not heat their homes when they are working on them in cold weather, this causes problems. We had to have two floors of carpeting restretched after two years because the house was cold when it was installed. They changed window contractors during our build and we were not notified we were getting different windows than we originally signed up for. We just recently discovered an attic fan which was supposed to be part of the upgraded package for our particular home, was not installed. The list goes on.....
