Know Before the Warranty Goes

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.

Components of a Home Inspection


The roof is one of the most costly and important structures. We will examine the roof, its structure, shingles/tiles, flashing, gutters, downspouts and more.


This includes the exterior walkways and doors, siding, eaves and soffits, fascia, paint, and other such elements of the home’s exterior including sidewalks and mailboxes.


We will visually inspect the HVAC systems including ducts, filters, furnaces and air conditioning units inside & outside the property. Heat & cold blowing temps will both be tested.


We will visually inspect plumbing fixtures for proper function, including tubs, sinks, hoses, showers and water shut-off valves, if applicable, and look for leaks and other such flaws.


We will visually inspect both interior and exterior electrical systems including service drops, service masts, grounding, outlets, meters, circuit breakers, and other such systems.


We will test and examine all major appliances like hot water heaters, washers and dryers, dishwashers to look for any signs of potential failure or malfunction.
