End of Home Warranty Inspections
Does your home builder warranty on your new construction house expire soon? Have you conducted your own thorough home inspection yet to file claims before it is too late? If not, you might be at risk for holding responsibility for expensive repairs!
Did you know a large number of construction faults are ignored, go unnoticed, or are dismissed by the homeowner for three to five years, yet the coverage for the majority of building materials in a home builder warranty expire after just a year? Thus, having your property inspected by a certified home inspector before any part of your home builder warranty expiration can save hundreds and even thousands of dollars in future repair expenses.
What is Covered in a Home Builder Warranty?
It is common practice for home builders to include a warranty for their work on a new construction home. The terms of this warranty are typically grouped into timeframes based on the type of work covered. Under a home builder warranty, a buyer of a new construction home will often receive:
- One-year warranty on materials and labor (tiles, paint, drywall, shingles, etc.)
- Two-year warranty to cover mechanical failures (HVAC, electrical, or plumbing systems)
- Ten-year warranty that covers structural defects
These warranties may include responsibilities for the homeowner to adhere to keep the warranty valid such as timely maintenance.
