Builder’s Warranty Inspection
Most builders provide a one-year warranty for a newly constructed home. We like to compare it to the 30,000 mile service you do for your new car.
During the first year of occupancy, a new home owner may compile a “punch list” of items that are not functioning as designed or construction items in need of repair. Your one year Builder’s Warranty will expire usually within the first year after closing. Many times the one year warranty marks the final opportunity to identify, document, and inform your Builders of items that need repair or adjustments. All safety hazards, repairs, and adjustments should be professionally documented BEFORE your Builder is relieved of their responsibility under the one year warranty.
We specialize in working with buyers of new homes whose one year warranty is coming to an end. Once we have inspected your home, you will have the knowledge and documentation to discuss any home problems with the quality of the materials or the workmanship with your Builder. Educated homeowners stand a better chance of getting the Builder to correct those items that need repair.
It is important that these issues be called out before your one year anniversary date so that your builder can make the repairs at no expense to you. Let SouthState Property Inspections help you find these minor problems now before they become costly repairs later on.
Protect your investment by scheduling your builder’s warranty inspection.
