1-Year Warranty Inspection – Most builders provide a one year warranty for new construction. Generally during this period of time the buyer develops a “punch list” of corrections for the contractor to repair under the warranty coverage. However, many defects will not be obvious to the untrained eye.
It is a smart idea to have the home inspectedbefore the 12th month of ownership so that a full list of repairs (from cracked tiles to inadequate attic insulation) can be submitted and repaired by your builder at no cost to you.
It is a new home, but its not perfect. You will be reassured in knowing that potential problems were addressed before they grew into something that could cost you a great deal of headaches and money down the road.
