Builder's Warranty Inspection Brandon

The Builder Of Your Newly Constructed Home Generally Warranties The Home With A One Year Builder’s Warranty.

A builder’s warranty inspection is a thorough evaluation of your newly constructed home before the warranty expires. Most builders provide a 12-month warranty that covers defects with workmanship and materials

Five reasons you should schedule a builder’s warranty inspection:

  1. Your builder will make the repairs: Any defects found during a builder’s warranty inspection will be taken care of according to the terms of your warranty. After the warranty period expires, all repairs and their costs will be passed onto you. For some defects, this could mean repair bills in the thousands of dollars.
  2. There are many people involved in building a home: The builder will generally subcontract work out to specialists. Plumbers and electricians may be hired to install certain components. While most subcontractors offer quality workmanship, there are no guarantees. A shortcut here or an oversight there can mean future trouble for the homeowner.
  3. Municipal inspections only cover the basics: Your county or city building official will inspect your home before allowing occupancy. This is not a full home inspection. The local building officials only check for building code compliance. Furthermore, municipal code inspectors are often limited to the amount of time they can spend at a property. They are scheduled to do multiple inspections in a single day.
  4. Even new home aren’t perfect: During a warranty inspection, problems may be found in a new home, including but not limited to: structural issues, defective materials, roofing issues, plumbing issues, and electrical hazards. Even if all was well when you first moved in, the environment and weather can affect building materials over time. There may be issues related to the initial construction that were not present 11 months ago.
  5. Protect your investment with a builder’s warranty inspection: Having a home built is one of the largest investments you will make. A builder’s warranty inspection will give you peace of mind to enjoy your new home and make it easier to sell in the future.

New homes should be inspected as well. Our final inspection is scheduled prior to the final walk-through, and is similar to a comprehensive residential home inspection. We inspect the home in its entirety and test the major systems including the electrical, plumbing, and HVAC to ensure they work properly. Any issues found during this inspection will be typically used as a punchlist for the builder to correct prior to closing.
