My Toll Experience

Leaks

There are major leaks all over the house, many of which appeared within the first year we lived in the house.

1. In the Princess Suite, there is a huge leak in the ceiling just outside the door to the closet. (See Criterium-Lockatong Report, Dowling Report, and photos.)

2. In the Shared Bath, water comes through the ceiling vent whenever there is a heavy rain, and collects on the floor. If I am not home to mop it up, it leaks through the floor and into the ceiling above the Living Room. As a result, part of the Living Room ceiling is now collapsing, and the hardwood floors beneath it are ruined. (See Criterium-Lockatong Report and photos.)

3.  In the Master Bedroom, there is a leak in the ceiling directly over the bed, and another in the ceiling of the dressing area immediately outside the walk-in closets.  This leak is of particular concern, because the water drips right into the light fixture.  (See Criterium-Lockatong Report, Dowling Report, and photos.)

4.  In the Front (Extra) Room adjacent to the Master Bedroom, there are several leaks in the ceiling.  (See Criterium-Lockatong Report, Dowling Report, and photos.)

5.  In the Master Den, there are leaks in two places in the ceiling.  (See Criterium-Lockatong Report, Dowling Report, and photos.)

6.  In the Master Bathroom, there is a large leak along the left side of the rear window, and another at the south-east corner of the skylight.  (See Criterium-Lockatong Report, Dowling Report, and photos.)

7.  Above the Open Landing, there are leaks in the ceiling that run almost the entire length of the landing.  (See Criterium-Lockatong Report, Dowling Report, and photos.)

8.  There are leaks around both chimneys along the southern end of the house, because the flashing was not installed properly.  (See Huffman Report.)

Five engineers, two builders, and a roofing specialist have spent a total of not less than fifty hours in the attic and on the roof trying to identify the source of all of the leaks, to no avail.  Yet by some miracle, engineers Harald Greve and Peter Wilner were able to determine within five minutes that all of the leaks were due to “just one tiny hole in the roof.”   

And Toll Brothers has refused to repair even this!
