After researching several "custom" home builders in the Mckinney area, my fiance' and I chose Jered Custom Homes to build our dream home. No more than 8 weeks after the foundation was poured, we were not even fully wired yet, we discovered a large crack in our foundation. Bringing this crack to the attention of Jerry Carlton and Ed Boughtin of Jered Custom Homes, we expressed serious concern. Both Jerry and Ed suggested the crack was "shrinkage", a very common occurrence after a fresh slab pour. Watching the crack grow in length and width, we hired an independent engineer to assess this crack. After we were given a report of very disconcerting news, we hired two more independent engineers. All three engineers had the same assessment of our foundation: The Larry Smith Engineered design plan was weak: not having ANY re-enforcement in the beams, the beams being undersized and too far apart. There were also numerous key elements Jered Custom Homes left out during the construction phase of the foundation: the design called for a control joint, which was omitted, the plans called for "select fill", which was omitted, the plans called for a drainage system and pond liner before the pour in a courtyard area to avoid standing water, this was omitted. The plans called for "strands" which were omitted and a poly liner in the beams, which were omitted. The crack has now grown to 17 feet long, going from one outside beam to another and measures as wide as 1/8.
Jered Custom Homes and Larry Smith Engineering have denied any failure on thier parts to design and construct a proper foundation.
Neither of these companies is bonded and the "general liability" insurance they carry does not cover "such things".

A family owned and operated business that brings years of experience to McKinney and the surrounding area. If it is the historic look you want these are your guys. Builds mainly in the historic district of downtown McKinney. Small company that pays attention to detail. Visit their website with a quick GOOGLE search, Jered Custom Home
