Often called an 11th-month inspection or 1-year warranty inspection, this service is provided to new home buyers near the end of their first-year builder warranty period. It is used to identify any deficiencies that may be covered under the builder’s warranty.
A warranty inspection is a complete inspection of the home, not a limited one: foundation to roof, inside and out.
Most new homeowners realize, after a few months in the home, that everything is not perfect. The construction of a new home requires an enormous amount of materials, workers, and methods of construction. With so many moving parts, it is common that issues will develop within the first year of occupancy and some may be hidden.
The inspection is a cost-effective way to identify repairs or deficiencies in the structural, mechanical, and installed appliances in the home. A written report will be produced with a summary of recommended repairs that can be provided to the builder during the warranty period.
