NEW HOME WARRANTY INSPECTION
Don’t skip an inspection simply because the home is brand new!
A new home inspection is identical to any other inspection we would do on an older home. However because it is a brand new home we are more picky and detailed to the T. We pick on cosmetic issues and other items we would typically not fuss about in older homes because when you move into a brand new home, it is expected that it is just that - brand new. You waited quite sometime for the home to be built and in turn the home should reflect the perks of being the first occupant.
Another consideration is that most home builders provide a one-year warranty with their homes to ensure it will be free of defects at no extra costs to you within that year. Typically, during this period of time the buyer develops some sort of punch list of items for the contractor to repair under the warranty coverage. Some defects are not be obvious to the untrained eye and it is recommended you hire a professional home inspector. We usually recommend two inspections within this warranty period. First one within thirty days of possession for bench-marking purposes and at the 11th month for performance purposes. The outcome of both inspections will form a chunk of the items that should be presented to your builder for revision alongside those you have picked on. A lot can happen in eleven months and some problems will only become apparent as the home's systems and components get regular use. Once the warranty year elapses, any items to fix or repair will typically be your financial responsibility.
It is therefore wise and smart to have your home inspected before your new home warranty expires. Our Inspector verifies that systems and components of your new home are built and installed to last according to their life expectancy at minimum.
You will be rest assured knowing that potential problems were addressed before they grew into something that could cost you a large sums of money down the road. Allow our certified home inspector to conduct your Builder Warranty Home Inspection in Halfax, Bedford, Dartmouth and all of HRM Today!
