TIME IS RUNNING OUT
YOUR ONE-YEAR BUILDERS WARRANTY
IS ABOUT TO EXPIRE
Don't let your Builders Warranty expire without having a professional home inspection.
Traditionally most builders offer a new construction one-year warranty which covers many aspects of repair
and replacement throughout the house. Now more than ever, smart homeowners of new construction
properties are taking advantage of having a professional home inspection to assist in discovering unforeseen
pitfalls affecting their home.
There may be defects that have not revealed themselves - yet.
There is no such thing as a perfect house. Beyond your own request for repairs, there are components that
should be repaired that can only be discovered by a skilled home inspector (improper wiring, attic framing,
furnace & A/C concerns, etc.).
"What could possibly be wrong, this is a new house."
Building a new home is a tremendously complex endeavor and the city/municipal inspector cannot check
everything in your home. With current city and municipal budgets under financial stress it is not unusual for
the average city Inspector to have a workload of 25-30 inspections in a single day. Even for the best builders,
it's nearly impossible to complete the building process without missing something.
Have defects discovered and corrected at the builders expense, rather than at YOUR expense.
When you consider the investment you have made in your new home, a professional home inspection is a
relatively inexpensive safeguard. We believe your investment in a new construction one-year home warranty
inspection will prove to be of significant value. Be a smart homeowner - get the facts and secure the ""peace
of mind"" you deserve!
