It’s important to order a warranty inspection approximately 11 months after you close on your new home. Since the builder’s warranty is for one year, this gives you time to file claims and request necessary repairs before the warranty period ends.
I will examine the property for problems and safety hazards that might have developed during the first months of occupancy. After you have your warranty inspection, schedule a walkthrough with your builder. Show your builder the inspection report and ask for any problems or safety issues to be repaired that are covered by the one-year warranty. You’ll save money by having defective and hazardous items repaired as part of the warranty. Some of these issues might be small now but could cause more serious problems later. As your professional home inspector, I will complete a thorough inspection, giving you the peace of mind that your investment and family are protected.
