If you have just purchased a newly built home direct from the builder you probably feel confident that everything has been inspected and completed correctly and to the highest standard. The builder will usually offer up to a one year warranty that covers any problems with the construction build itself. During this first year, while your home is still under warranty is the best time to have an independent inspection done to find building mistakes. These mistakes can be sent in a report to the builder to cover the cost of the repairs are per the terms of the warranty. Be sure to take advantage of the warranty that is offered and have your newly built home inspected without delay.
Why Do I Need A Builder Warranty Inspection?
The thought that your home is brand new and doesn’t need an inspection within the first year is false. The builder will not have made any mistakes intentionally but things can easily get overlooked; especially with all the components that go into the building of a house. The many contractors that had a hand in the building of your home could have made errors that will only get worse over time. These mistakes, if left unrepaired can turn into bigger problems and end up causing you stress and inconvenience; and costing you more money out of your pocket later on. It’s best to let the builder cover the costs of problems while they are detected early and can be repaired quickly and easily!
