After moving in, Melgoza said her family started noticing the minor issues.
“I started to notice like the small pieces, the missing part of the island, the cabinet doors started to open and close, the bricks weren't sealed correctly, the wall cracking. It was like one thing after the other," Melgoza described.

Melgoza said the construction company called her back this week and a repairman stopped by her home to start repairs.
