We would never recommend or buy a Tribute home after our experience with our 9 year old house. Our patio doors in our walkout basement recently had to be replaced because there was condensation in between the panes of glass, we paid extra originally for e argon, how there could still be any in them when there was obviously a gap between the panes. The patio door in the main floor kitchen now also has the same problem. The worst part about the house is that we started having problems with our roof when it was only five years old, we were told "the installation of the shingles isn't guaranteed" Last year our insurance company changed and they wanted to do an evaluation of our property. In the report they said we had to have our roof inspected and either repaired or replaced. We have just had an independent roof inspection and they said we need a new roof. A just less than 9 year old roof needs replacing! Obviously the roof was defective from the beginning. We lived in our previous house for 24 years (not a Tribute home) and replaced the roof when it was 20 years old. We have been looking at other houses in our subdivision and the majority of the roofs have the same problem we have. It's unbelievable that a builder who is supposed to be reputable obviously used inferior quality shingles on our roof.
