Warranty Inspections
Getting the most out of your warranty from the builder

"Why does a recently constructed home need a warranty inspection?
I always thought a new construction is perfect and safe!"


Even builders with the best reputation subcontract the majority of tasks (foundation, framing, plumbing, electrical, etc.) out to the lowest bidder, with speed, not quality being an important consideration. With many separate activities going on at the same time, it's nearly impossible for the builder to personally monitor all phases of the home construction.

The general assumption that the builder and contractors are overseen by state or local government officials and that the local town or city building inspector checks the house out, is only partially true. Besides code violations, there could be problems with the home that have serious consequences for the new home owner. Ask any ASHI® home inspector about the deficiencies and safety issues discovered in newly constructed homes!

Be aware that some builders have prevented ASHI® home inspectors from inspecting newly built houses. If you are in the process of buying a new home and the builder does not allow you to bring your own home inspector on site, this poses a couple of questions; "Why won't the builder allow the home inspector on site?" What does the builder have to hide? At this point you should be thinking hard about proceeding with the purchase and you should also be consulting with your attorney.

If a home buyer has missed the opportunity to have an inspection during the construction phase and final walk through, there may be time to come in afterwards. Most new builders offer a warranty period for the new homeowner, however, there are usually many items not covered by the warranty as well as limitations on those that are.
Warranty Inspections allow the new homeowner to more completely fill out the Warranty Forms provided by the builder before they ask for a release of liability.  This inspection like all Home Inspections follows the ASHI® Standards of Practice and provides an in-depth review of the condition of the home including the structural and mechanical systems, as well as cosmetic features.  Click on What We Inspect for more details.
