Do not let your 12 month warranty expire before getting a home inspection on your new home. By letting the warranty period expire, there is a very good chance you will be throwing away money. The builder must be notified prior to one year from the date you signed your contract.
One Year Warranty inspections are very meticulous, and all owner issues are noted along with all the issue we find during the inspection. All homes settle in the first year and we are there to make sure the home is still solid. You will get a full home inspection including cosmetic issues. We will note the deficiencies and have associated photos to expound on the issues. Your builder is required to repair any defects found. Not completing this inspection would possibly be devastating if there are any structural issues.
We will inspect the home’s structure, exteriors, roofing, electrical systems, plumbing systems, air conditioning systems, garages, appliances, and many other items. We are sure you would want the builder to repair any issues and we agree, they should. You spend a lot of money on your home, and you bought it new, not used. You should definitely get your monies worth. That is why we will meticulously inspect all areas and report them to you and the builder.
The local builders, I find, do not like our inspections because of the meticulous details and all the issues we find. Most of the time, they downplay or dismiss our findings. But we remind them; We work for the customer and not the builder.
Getting your inspection in the hands of the builder puts the onus on the builder to repair all the items in the report. Your job is complete, and the builder must do their part to repair all deficiencies.
This inspection is crucial to ensure your home is built right and retain its value. The inspection will also ensure your home will last for many years to come.
