Cumberland County family wants answers on 'faulty' construction

By Charlotte Huffman

A Cumberland County family is looking for answers after finding problems allegedly resulting from the "faulty" construction of their new home.

Michelle Wakeman says when her family bought their house in 2009, there were no noticeable code violations. Since then, Wakeman has found issues including cracks in the walls and mold. She says the construction issues have remained unresolved by the builder, Caviness Land Development.

Wednesday, Wakeman hired a private inspector to verify her findings and determine whether they are violations of the North Carolina Building Code, which could lead them to file suit against the builder.

Caviness Land Development Operations Manager Pamela Satterly stands by the company’s work and efforts to resolve any problems brought to their attention. 

“Anytime they have called we’ve always sent myself or a sub contractor or company to go to the house to see what issue they had," Satterly said.

Robert Wakeman maintains there are other homes on his street built by Caviness Land Development that have similar problems.

“There are a few other houses in the neighborhood with the same deal, they just don’t want to be bothered speaking up about it.”
