If you want a project completed on time with general good quality, EG Stoltzfus can fit the bill. If you want to have interaction with the builder during the building process or input into the design/options beyond the standard choices then this is not the builder for you. EGS builds what they offer, for the prices they quote (and increase along the way) and are largely unwilling to make customer requested adaptations.
There were some options of the house that were skipped over during the design process that would have been nice to know. for example the front door not having windows or a deadbolt, also the garage door not being insulated. These options were not mentioned to us and now we have to pay extra to have them done after the fact.
Lots of shoddy work, including hunks out of the wood, and then just painted over.
I found Craig and Stephanie very helpful in my decision to build this house.
They knocked it out of the park as far as the actual finished living area. My issues are with the lack of holding their subcontractors to the same standard on the mechanicals and appliances as the actual end structure outcome. I would have easily given them 5 stars had there been any focus on how the mechanicals are run in the basement. Whatever was the easiest for them to run the water and air conditioning was fine on the final walk through. I really wonder if it is all really code compliant, more to come on that? If you want to finish the basement to the full level of the ceiling, good luck. It will cost thousands of $$ to come close. LH Brubaker is a complete nightmare on the appliances. I would never recommend them for anything. Everything is the fault of Covid 19 and they have zero responsibility for anything. If it was just us I would say okay maybe a bad experience. But every neighbor I talked to had the same experience and when I called EG, they said I had to deal with their captive vendor. I did and I am done with LH Brubaker forever. Beautiful house, great location, just expected a little more when spending what we did. Very responsive on follow up to issues but zero follow up to see if the outcome was acceptable to their valued customer. In my line of business, I am responsible for the service and job my vendors do! We love the location and the house, we were expecting a little more from all of the feedback I had gotten from others on EG. I think they are trying to build too many houses too quickly.
The process from start to finish was horrible with customer service and follow-through.
We have certainly had our problems but EG has tried to solve them and for that we are thankful. Now that our year warranty has expired , we trust that they will follow through with the identification of the cause and remedying our moisture problem made evident in the cupping of our hardwood floor and replacing it. We are still looking forward to getting our powder room flooring temporarily replaced so that our toilet can be reseated and usable after 4 months of being torn up. Our recommendation can change depending on how our situation is finally resolved.
I moved in last September and I did not asked them to come in to fix anything. The dishwasher was not hooked up the dryer was not connected to the fuse box. It was not ready for me when I moved in. The toilet overflowed and it was a disaster. I have had trouble two times. I have paid all those time and never reimbursed. They had to put in a new flusher. They were very difficult to get a hold of and I spend $1000 to fix the issue and I thought it was not right for a new build. I did not asked them to fix it, but I feel like it was not as I would have liked. I should have been paid for the issue that was out of my control. They all added up and it was expensive.
The overall buying experience has been positive, with a result we are happy with!
Craftsmanship is exceptional. Quality build home at an affordable price.
It takes the company a very long time to fix something and they don't always do it right.
It's a great neighborhood and a nice assortment of home styles with a lot of nice people involved.
EGStoltzfus has a good reputation that was echoed by everyone we talked to. Home owners were very satisfied with the quality of their homes and the fact that they were easy to work with. Our experience found all of this to be true.
Some minor issues but overall good builder and company.
Very pleased with the quality and professionalism of the entire process from beginning to end: sales, construction, delivery and beyond. Among the best we’ve ever seen!
We will be sure to tell them to not be afraid to ask any questions and look at all their home options as there are many to choose from.
I would recommend them to anyone who is going to build, I thought they were great.
It was an easy process going through building a new home. They were very cooperative when we asked questions and needed anything to be done.
Keep a watchful eye on all subcontractors.
nice area - nice quiet community - nice home (so far)
Want to give 5 stars for everything, as we love our home, neighborhood, and town, but are so disappointed in the way our lawn and drainage issues have been mishandled, and not responded to.
We already have!
As noted below:Craig Smoot was a pleasure to work with. He was a significant help in the entire process. Debbie Meenan has always been pleasant and responsive. The members of the design team that assisted us also were helpful. The exterior of the house reflects the good choices the entire EGStoltzfus team helped us make.
I would give EG Stoltzfus three stars because the only issue we had was we were promised at closing things and they weren't done in a timely manner.

This means that any reviews you see on a GuildQuality profile page are real comments left by the customer and verified by GuildQuality.
Each item listed under "Customer satisfaction" represents a specific question asked by GuildQuality to customers of EGStoltzfus as part of our survey process. The bar graph and percentage next to the question stand for the percentage of respondents that were "Satisfied" about that particular question.
A customer is considered satisfied about about a question if they answered with 4 or more stars out of 5. For example if the "Communication" question is at 95% satisfaction that means that 95% of survey respondents answered that question with 4 or more stars out of 5 possible stars.More about surveys
