It is common for new construction homes to come with a one-year warranty. Before the one-year warranty expires, around the 11th month, it is a great idea to have the home professionally inspected. The inspection will allow you to take advantage of any problems or defects that the builder is responsible for correcting. Armed with this information, you can take the necessary steps to hold your builder and his subcontractors to their warranties while they are still binding. After the warranty expires, a homeowner could be financially responsible for repairs that could have been identified during the warranty period. The best time to get one of these inspections is around the eleventh month of ownership.
Even though the home is new to you, it can still have issues related to all areas of the home. A year of running water through the pipes, electricity through the wires and seasons that may have affected the exterior of the home all can be found while using the right inspectors.
