That’s why she bought a brand-new home from Dream Finders.
“This is the first new home I’ve lived in my entire life. I’ve worked my entire life to have a home like this. And I couldn’t have been more disappointed when I received this information,” Cannon said.
In January, a home inspector reported that he spotted three roof construction problems at the home that could lead to leaks.
Cannon said she spotted three holes in the ceiling leaking water into a bucket before she closed on the home in January.
A form that Cannon said shows what Dream Finders promised to fix before move-in noted “roof leak and nail heads.”
Cannon's mother Elaine Sturgeon said the ceiling started leaking again in the same spot on Saturday.
“I looked up there and it was a little spot, where that little spot is right up there, it was bulged out like there was something behind it. And it was water,” said Sturgeon.
Dream Finders’ attorney Robert Riva said no one from Dream Finders was willing to talk on camera about this, but Riva answered Action News Jax’s questions by email.
Action News Jax asked Riva if Dream Finders is experiencing known issues with its roofing subcontractors leading to leaks in its new construction.
“To my knowledge, no,” Riva said in an email.
Roofers were supposed to come to Cannon’s house Thursday to fix the problem, but that did not happen.
Riva said the roofing subcontractor is supposed to fix the problem this week.
