Burning Bridges

The hardest thing in life to learn is which bridge to cross and which to burn.

As is stated in the ‘About’ page, our aim on Mistakably Premier is not to discourage people from building or buying from Unmistakably Premier Homes, but to educate and, hopefully, encourage UPH to live up to their own mission statement.  We’ve documented our own headaches with our home, and, where appropriate, highlighted some business issues that UPH is facing.  Granted, we’re not the most objective party, nor do we regard ourselves as a paragon of journalism, but we believe we’ve been fair and factual (if somewhat irreverent) in our coverage of UPH.

However, we fear our reporting may have resulted in the souring of any diplomatic relations we have with UPH.  But what do you think?  Should we continue our documenting of UPH issues?  Are we doing the right thing?  Have we gone too far?

Leave your answers in the comments below…

    Doing the right thing which UPH obviously is not!

    I would be interested in seeing a Public Announcement from Premier surrounding their Financial troubles, accept some blame for being months behind in production and post-production work, and steps they are taking towards resolution. I think a lot of people, yourself included would be comforted to know that your choice/decision to build local, to support an american company, was not misplaced. WIth so many builders going out of business in this day and age, you’d think they would want to do everything in their power to maintain happy customers.

    There is a reason each and everyone of us has chosen to either build or buy from Premier.

      What an interesting and excellent comment… Although we never really thought about it, the fact that UPH is local should mean something to those that placed their faith in the company. However, in our particular case, I would say that actions would speak louder than words. Admitting they have a problem, and outline a plan to correct all the issues would go a long way, the proof is in the pudding…

    Yes, information direct from the horse’s mouth would be appreciated.
    I have spoken to several individuals outside of the company (city inspector & medina county builders association) and received some information but nothing directly from UPH

    I am in process of refinancing with the drop in rates and found out today that there is a lien on my property. Waiting now for return phone call from UPH about this new “twist” but not holding my breath that this will happen.
