One Year Builder Warranty Inspections

Most people do not realize the importance of having an inspection on a new home, 11 months into ownership. It is always a good idea to have a new home inspected before closing, as new does not always mean the house does not have any issues that may need to be addressed. It is always easier to have a builder address the issues during the stage when the home is nearest completion and ready for move-in. But if you have not, there is still time to have your builder do the repairs before they become YOUR repairs.

After one year, anything cosmetic such as cracks in the sheetrock, binding doors, minor cracks & separations in your brick and stone would all normally fall under free repair. After the one year is up, the builder is no longer obligated to fix some items so be sure and follow up on the warranty for your builder. Some builders have items that fall under the two year warranty rule as well. It is best to verify all warranty requirements and extensions before closing, but it is still not too late.

We have done many one and two year warranty inspections for homeowners to document issues that may need to be addressed. Give us a call today to discuss your options.
