To be honest when we were in TV visiting and house hunting I was having too much fun to worry about siding and ceilings that much. We're not likely to go for vinyl siding as I'm not keen on it and much prefer CBS in addition I'm not convinced of the sturdiness of vinyl in the face of high winds but if it were a choice between living in TV or not well I'll suck it up and live with vinyl. Popcorn ceilings, YUCK but again it's the lifestyle I'm buying so again I'd have to say I'd put up with them. As a result of that unless we find the perfect home right away we'll rent until we find the home of our dreams, 024

The vynal siding problem is not as bad as many people think. I would get a good inspection done before I bought a house and get it on record if there is a problem. The Villages most likely would not sell to you if you had a list of problems at closing. I believe they will take care of most problems. Remember you get more with sugar than you do with vinegar. I was in the building business for 25 years and I find the villages do a very good job.

I had issues with my siding up here in Duval,mostly not properly nailed space wise, some places had a nail only every 48 inches, also had to have proper channels installed which were omitted originally.
Had my builder check it and it was completely removed and reapplied correctly,had few other issues after the reinstall and those were addressed as well.
I'm completely satisfied with the actions taken and the issues as far as I'm concerned was addressed. :beer2:
I must add that several homes here were done 4 or 5 times,my neighbor behind my house was one,but they continued to work to finally get it right.
