I just saw your post.....sorry! I think it is in a good location, close enough to wake forest and all of the "things" it has to offer. The schools are good, although currently they are all over the place - meaning, rolesville elementary, wake forest middle and knightdale high. Who knows what that will mean in two years though.

I think st.lawrence builds good homes, it looks like excellent pricing and nice amenities. I have not been to the neighborhood, but I have sold clients st. lawrence homes and they have been happy.

Hope this helps!

Leigh

St. Lawrence cuts many corners. For one, they do not use a home wrap. They'll tell you they don't think it's necessary. This is just to cut costs and corners. They do it throughout. They build them as cheap as they can and charge top dollar.

When we toured a St Lawrence home we were very, very disappointed in the quality. We loved the floorplan we saw on paper, but in person there were lots of obvious shortcuts and shoddy craftsmanship (mouldings, baseboards, etc.)

Please keep in mind that ALL builders, whether custom or production MUST adhere to the BUILDING CODE. Our inspectors here are very responsible and very busy! Vicki

Default St Lawrence

I actually just got back from looking at a St. LAwrence home and I come from a family involved in building. The workmanship was actually very good. They do use a house wrap and all the building materials are top notch. Another thing is that they give you beautiful base and crown standard, among a lot of other standard features other builders would consider upgrades. i was very happy with the homes and thought they were a great value for the price.

Exclamation St Lawrence Homes

I'm a home owner in Charlotte and have experienced St. Lawrence as a homebuyer and owner. The one thing that sticks out to me is their shady way of handling the customer. The builder rep was very underhanded and seemed to try and pull one over on us when we were trying to purchased. When she found out we weren't naive, she changed her tune. Also the warranty person was similar, at first he wanted to fluff off the claim and then when persisted, he did what was expected. My advice, if you buy a St. Lawrence home, be prepared to expect them to ********* and you'll be able to handle the situation much better from then forward.

The building codes here are a joke. You need to protect yourself.

They actually don't use a house wrap, but recently started using the Zip system which is somewhat of an improvement. Overall they do a fairly good job, but I think there are better builders out there in the same price range. The biggest thing that I have noticed is the finish work and attention to detail could be better, although it could vary from neighborhood to neighborhood.
