11th Month Warranty Inspection

Most home builders include a one-year warranty with the purchase of their newly built houses. Warranties for newly constructed homes typically offer coverage on all appliances included in the sale along with the home’s systems such as HVAC, plumbing, and electric. Because these warranties usually expire one year from the purchase date, we recommend that an inspection is performed 11 months after closing.

The 11th Month Warranty Inspection is performed exactly like our other inspections. Once the report is completed, homeowners can then pass it on to their builder’s warranty department for adjustments, repairs or replacements of necessary items while they’re still covered.

FAQ.

Day of Inspection

Should I walk around the house with you?

Absolutely. I’m happy to explain everything I’m looking at. There will be times where I need to focus and evaluate, but feel free to tag along and ask questions.

Can my agent be there too?

Yes! Agents are encouraged to be there and be engaged so they can know what they’re writing up in your Repair Request Addendum.

The Report

What should I be looking for?

My reports have lots of images to help you recall what you’re looking at. I break down my reports into areas that are safety hazards and other recommended items to fix/ask for.

The summary will be the most helpful area of the report, right at the top.

Will there be recommendations on who to call?

With each defect I include which type of contractor you will need to search for to get quotes.

Follow-up

Can I call you if I have questions after I get the report?

Absolutely. This is one of my favorite parts. Call, text or email.

Contractors

Can you give me some preferred contractors to call?

I have a few contractors that I’ve worked with in the past that I can recommend. I still recommend you contact at least 3 in each area for quotes and do your own research.
