Builder’s Warranty Inspection
If you have purchased a new home in the last year, you should consider having a Builder’s Warranty Inspection before you reach the end of your one-year home warranty. We can perform a warranty inspection for any construction defects, improperly installed items, items that do not function correctly or any other issues that may be covered by the builder’s warranty.
Your builder’s warranty covers a great many items and systems in your home which may not have been installed properly, or without proper preventative maintenance measures taken. Negligence such as this is the cause for most of the problems a home will develop in its life.
Typical problems found in new homes include:
- damaged or improperly installed exterior siding
- damaged or ill fitting doors and windows
- improperly installed roof shingles and flashing
- ungrounded electrical outlets and plumbing leaks
Certain minor cosmetic issues such as popped nail heads in drywall are the result of the natural settling of the structure and can easily be fixed by the builder near the end of the warranty. It is a good idea to present the warranty inspection report to the builder so that any defects or concerns that may be discovered during the inspection can be addressed before the end of your warranty.
Protect your investment and call us today to schedule your Builder’s Warranty Inspection. Time is running out! Once the anniversary of your closing date has passed, your builder may not be responsible for many of the items that may be found.
