    How much toxic waste does it take to make a smog eating tile? How bad will someone be poisoned when the dust from these tiles end up in the swimming pool? Just Google “KB Home Sucks”, KB Home should just try to stick to building a home not these PR gimmicks. The trouble is they can’t build a quality home. FTC Consent order violators, if they built a good home and didn’t lie about it in advertising they wouldn’t have the Federal Trade Commission Consent order forcing them to satisfy the home buyer. If your not satisfied with your home for any reason, KB Home is to buy back the home – just another lie as KB IGNORES YOUR COMPLAINTS. Good luck with the roof tile shenanigans KB!
