After addressing dozens of cracked homes, builder tells homeowners to seek warranty coverage instead


Bob and Kay Lynn say their home, which they've owned for five years, began showing cracks almost as soon as they moved in. It's one of a hundred homes in the South built since 2000 that have had severe problems with cracking. After years of addressing problems, the builder, Reynen & Bardis, is telling the homeowners that further repairs need to be done by the warranty company.

The house on Murieta South Parkway was about a year old when Bob and Kay Lynn bought it as a second home in 2002.
