New Construction / Builder Warranty Inspections
Most new home builders offer a warranty for either 12 or 18 months.During this period, if anything breaks or you notice something that the contractor may have missed you should able to contact the builder and he will fix it, for free. Unfortunately, this is not always the way things work in real life. Often, the builder will delay, or claim, “Hey, we built it to the code”. Or, maybe you waived your right to an independent home inspection because “it was a new home,” but now you are not sure if it was right. Do you want to live with excuses?
