Avoid Costly Repairs – Schedule Your Builder’s Warranty Inspection Before Your Warranty Expires
Building a new home is an expensive and stressful undertaking. Protecting your investment is significantly easier.
Even though your home isn’t a year old yet, there could be underlying issues that have not yet become visible to you. These issues should be noted and presented to your builder before your warranty expires. If you don't report these defects to your builder before the warranty expires, you could be liable for the repair costs — and the expenses could be significant.
Certified, Trained and Experienced
Your National Property Inspections inspector is trained to look for things that may have been missed during your city or closing inspection. We look for symptoms that might point to bigger problems: For example, a crack in the floor may indicate a more serious issue with the home’s foundation; water spots could indicate a faulty roof or poorly installed flashing; and improperly grounded electrical outlets could pose a fire hazard. NPI inspects your home top to bottom — roof to foundation — to identify any defects so you can report them to your builder before your warranty expires.
