A structural warranty provides a legally binding, written agreement between the home builder and the homeowner. It contractually defines the builder’s work-product obligations related to construction quality and continuing obligations. Under these kinds of agreements, the builder stands as insured and the homeowner is the prospective beneficiary. Also worthy of note, realize that warranty insurance is different from liability insurance. In a typical structural warranty agreement, the builder guarantees his structure will stand without defect for at least 10 years.
