I have been in a Pulte home for 5 yrs now. I have started to realize quality issues very soon after we moved in. We are fooled by the quality of the model house. When we asked the sale person is telling us that the model is mostly standard with a few exceptions. When we moved in we started to see lower quality material through out the house. I upgraded my entire first floor to hardwood. All we got was engineered wood with wood surface. After 5 yrs, I think I now need to replace it.
The interior doors are made with also faux wood. The high end handles are not able to stay on it because of their weigh.
i have built with Centex, St. Lawrence Builder, Beazers, and Pulte. I would not build again with Pulte or Beazers. I would say Pulte is the worst. Here is your problem :) now that Centex merged with Pulte - which one will win out. So pick your builder carefully.
