How can I get builder and warranty company to repair new home?

Q: I recently closed on the new home I purchased pre-construction from a builder. The house has problems, and I am getting nowhere with the warranty company. To make things worse, the issues I reported at my walk-through have still not been fixed. What can I do to get them to fix these discrepancies?

“They both had backgrounds in the trade show industry,” Holdeman said. “They found retail display manufacturers rarely provided the level of brand immersion and focus on service that are hallmarks in the trade show industry.”

By integrating the knowledge of their customer’s products and marketing initiatives, the pair found they could provide more than just a platform or shelf to hold a product, he said. They were able to build a consistent in-store experience around it.
