Builders or sellers generally provide a home warranty of one year, which covers the plumbing and electrical system, interior and exterior, ventilation and structure. This means that if there are any defects in these systems within the warranty period, the expenses of repairs will have to be borne by the seller or the contractor, only if you can prove that it was the seller’s fault. Different states have different standards, and the policy may also vary according from company to company.
Make sure that you always take warranty from your sellers. A warranty is a buyer’s protection. If you purchase a house without any warranty (which is mostly offered for a 12-month period), you will be the one who will be needed to bear all the costs that are thrown at you by the repairman.
The inspectors are often invited for home warranty inspection in the 11th-month. Many prefer opting for professional services over checking it all by themselves.
Now, before the expiry of the warranty, you can call us to inspect your home for defects. It is easy for you to overlook defects and damages, which is why it is important to take home warranty inspection services. We will help you identify defects and prove that it is the seller’s or builder’s fault, and then get them to bear the expenses.
It is , after all, very important to seek external help so as to be sure that your seller or builder are not hiding defects from you.

Just like a pre-purchase inspection, home warranty inspection is also expected to be extended and thorough.
In the warranty inspection, the inspector starts by examining the exterior of the house. This includes the paint, faults on doors or windows, status of the weep holes, installation of plumbing and electrical systems, and also checks for gaps or cracks for pest intrusion. The roofs are checked for visible flashing or damaged shingles. The inspector makes sure the quality of the foundation is fine, examines the drainage systems, and also ensures the functionality of the garage, if any.
In the interior house inspection, he checks out the drainage and looks for leakages in various spaces in the bathrooms. He thoroughly checks the kitchen installations and looks for sink leakages. The walls, floors, ceiling, outlets, and windows are inspected for damages. The inspector also examines cabinets, light switches, fans, and other significant interior elements of the house. HVAC systems are given proper attention.
A builder usually offers a home warranty for the initial one or two years to the buyer. During this time, the homeowner is protected from any and all expenses involved in the repairs of the home.
Once the home warranty expires, the repair costs are borne by the homeowner. For this reason, it is advisable to get your home inspected before the warranty runs out. If found, all the significant problems and repairs will be undertaken by the builder, but only till the time your home is under warranty. While many homeowners ignore this inspection, it is actually critically important.
In our home warranty inspection, we check every major and minor component of your home. Our inspection includes everything starting from the roof to the basement including components like HVAC appliances and other electrical appliances. We follow the construction inspection protocol that helps to spot any hidden damages. Our inspectors are certified by the InterNACHI and adhere strictly to the highest standards of service. Equipped with the best equipment and years of experience, our inspectors will help you ensure you make the most of your new home’s builder warranty.
It is recommended to get the home inspected before you buy, even if it’s a brand new property. If you skipped the pre-delivery inspection, you must ensure you get your home inspected in the warranty period. A typical home warranty program covers any damages and issues found during the warranty period. Once the home warranty period has passed, the repair costs will not be recovered by the seller/builder. Thus, get your warranty inspection now, before your warranty period runs out.
Most of the time, buyers get an inspection report from a builder’s representative real estate agent, whom you cannot count on every time. They may have their own motives. Get your new homes inspected during the first year as most home warranty programs cover the first year only.
If you walk through your home, you may not find the hidden signs of damage. But with modern tools and equipment, our home inspectors can spot those signs and provide you with a detailed report that you use to get the builder or seller to pay for the necessary repairs. Your home inspection cost is much lower than the repair costs you would incur after your warranty runs. So, get your home inspected during the warranty period and live peacefully from thereon.
