New construction homes aren’t really done being built until they’ve stood a full year through the elements and weather that could possibly expose some unforeseen issues with the home.
Most builders understand this and offer a one-year warranty to assure you their work is a job well done, and that they intend to fix anything that may come up in that first year.
It’s the buyer’s responsibility to understand this warranty well; what is and what is not covered, how long it extends, and ultimately, hiring an unbiased, trained eye to help identify a complete list of anything that could possibly need repaired or replaced before that warranty expires.
What is a New Home Warranty Inspection?
The New Home Warranty Inspection, also known as the One Year New Home Warranty Inspection, is part of our New Construction Inspection services, where one of our qualified home inspectors complete a full home inspection, much like the one that may have been done before purchasing the house originally, including a full report and pictures of anything we find along the way.
This allows the buyer time to get in touch with their builder and share the inspection with them so that they may make the necessary corrections while still being covered under warranty.
Technically, you can schedule this service any time before your warranty expires, but to get the most coverage, you’ll benefit from waiting until the last month or so in case there are any last-minute issues that arise.
