Personal Reviews of Unibilt Industries, Inc.
Lori from Ohio
We have purchased 2 Unibilt Homes, and we loved the first one as much as we love our second. The craftsmanship is very good, also very well insulated.
John Beasley from Raymond Ohio
The site advertises 3 -5 months after signing the paperwork is the average time until move in. Almost 14 months later we still aren't finished. Toured and been to the factory 3 times. Quality of the wood work and structure seem fine, However I understand from my builder they spray paint everything in the factory and the walls have a rough finish and show lap marks. Some areas look solid and others don't. The Drywall was the worst I've ever seen. I have been and around construction for almost 20 years. Drywall tape was showing throughout the house and horizontal seams were also showing. Corner bead too. Stress cracks after setting it on block which I had to fix myself. Month later coming back. Still don't have a shower door for the master bath. Dust and small pieces of wood in the spray paint along the base in areas where the floor wasn't cleaned before they sprayed the walls. Edges of ceiling not spackled well or sanded in spots leaving chunks of spackle showing. Concrete front porch has to be fixed because of cracks. Still waiting on the deck in the back. My biggest disappointment is delay after delay....
Linda from United States
We bought our home 12 years ago. We were so excited, My mother and father in law had a great experience. Unfortunately we did not have the same experience. We called our builder every week to see when it was going to be finished. We stopped by the house every day and nothing was being done. Apparently everyone knew what was going on except for us. We were being lied to by the builder every day we called. Needles to say our house sat for 7 or 8 months with out a thing being done. Sometime in the fall of 2004 they started working on our house. It was another person/builder. I feel that Unibult should have called us and offered to find us another builder. (We could have had a stick built house finished by the time it took the builder finished almost a year later.) Because it took them a year to finished, there were warrantees that were void, for example our front door. I called the manufacture and they told me that it was void because the door was to be painted exteriorly within one year from being installed. we did not move in until after the warrantee was void, our house was ready to shipped in Feb of 04. We moved in Feb 05. The builder who took over cut corners using cheap doors to finish the garage, cheep stairs to the basement. Our dryer vent went to the basement instead of outside. the mortar around the tub started cracking as soon as we moved in. I sealed it, but it continues to come off to this day even though we don't use the tub but once a year. I'm not sure who is responsable for the wiring, but all our electoral switches are backwards. the light switch that you would think would go to the back porch because it is closest to the door actually goes to the dinette. This is the case throughout the whole inter house. We've gotten use to it now, but it still irritates us. I've looked at the plans too and they are marked the logical way it should be, someone was playing a nasty jock. NOT FUNNY! We had no recourse because the builder went out of business right after we moved in. When it did come to issues that were directly linked to unibuilt they came and fixed it. Issues like the pluming not connecting correctly between the first and second floor, shingles not nailed down, bathroom vent on second floor crushed in moving process, leak from second floor shower. And they even came out to put our siding on correctly because it kept coming off after the builder did a poor job of putting it on. Would I ever build a unibult home again. I"m not sure. My friends who have built stickbuilt homes in the last year were able to move in and not have to worry about cleaning and painting after they moving in. With our home nothing was done, all the windows, doors, baseboards had to be calked and painted, walls, it was a lot of work.

Although I like my home there were many things that needed adjusting and fixing that should have been done and checked at the factory. The Freestanding counter back panel does not match the cabinets. All drawers and cabinet doors needed adjusting, the bathroom fans are very poor quality and we have to hold the handle down on the toilet 5 seconds for it to flush correctly. I did get the panel replaced after 6 weeks, it still does not match but it is better. I wrote a letter to the owner about the poor quality fans and toilet and did not get a response from him. My builder stated he would rather buy me new fans and toilet then try to get help from Unibuilt. I was told that the sawdust and dirt found throughout the house was not normal but that was all. I like the modular but it was very expensive for the size. Unless Unibuilt does something to make me feel better about our experience with them, I would not recommend using them!
Deborah Scott from Dayton, ohio
My husband and I had our home built by you 24 years ago. We have NEVER had any problems with our home! We love it! It so well constructed.. My father was a water well driller, he said of all the homes he has drilled wells for he told me the Unibuilt was the best. he was so right!
