Newly constructed homes typically come with a “Limited One-Year Warranty”. If you have lived in your newly constructed dream home for about 9 months, your one-year builder’s warranty is about to expire. While each builder has their own warranty and limitations, home builders typically provide you a one-year warranty to give you peace of mind.
The inspection is designed to help reveal defects and issues so you can have them repaired by the builder without any cost to you. This inspection is especially important if you opted not to have the home inspected at the time of purchase. Often, the items covered under the limited warranty may not be visible to the inexperienced eye, that’s why it is important to hire a professionally licensed home inspector.
A one-year warranty home inspection will give you the knowledge you need to make sure your new home is of the quality you expect. It will also help give you the comfort you deserve when you invest in a newly constructed home. Additionally, it will identify any potential future defects and provide you with general recommendations for preventive maintenance, helping you maintain the value of your investment. Even a new home requires regular maintenance – and that preventative maintenance keeps your home in good condition.
The inspection report is a useful tool you can use to have conversations with your builder’s representatives and request they repair any defects that are covered in the builder’s warranty. The report will also give you a great list of home maintenance tips and recommendations to keep your investment in good condition moving forward. It is an investment in protecting the investment you’ve already made in your new home. The cost of a one-year builder warranty inspection is a small price to pay for the peace of mind you’ll have living in your new home for years to come.
While a one-year warranty may vary depending on the builder, the commonly covered repairs of defects are:
