We dipped into our bank account and used every penny we had, and this is our finished product…We want justice and would like our money back along with the other victims.

In the comments section of the YouTube video by First Coast News, People reached out with their thoughts. Moist of them seemed to care very much.

  • Sorry Sandy. This is to everyone and anyone. Be very careful when you do anything in Florida. The Sharks take no prisoners. We had a home built in Nocatee three years ago. I was on the job every day including weekends cleaning up debris left by workers. Warranty work was a total HEADACHE. The warranty department always had an excuse for everything. For Sandy and everyone else in her neighborhood I wish you the best of luck.
  • Never. Ever. Give more money than the work completed, should always be progress payments.
