A New Home 1 Year Warranty Inspection is an inspection performed prior to your 1-year builder home warranty expiring. If you never had a New Construction inspection prior to move in, there may be many errors made by your builder that are still undetected; if some issues were noted prior to move in and supposedly corrected, this is also a good time to make sure that all of the fixes were properly taken care of and the house is still functioning as it should be. Ultimately, this is your last chance to compile a complete list of items that need repair and hold the builder accountable for fixing them.

The inspection itself is as thorough as a Buyers Inspection and includes the same high-quality report after the inspection concludes. The inspection takes between 2-3 hours on average, depending on the square footage, age, and complexity of the property. Reports are delivered within 24 – 36 hours and include digital photos to help you understand the nature and general location of potential defects.

Also included in the cost of every New Home 1 Year Warranty Inspection are a Thermal Imaging Scan and Gas Leak Detection.

The team at Sound Structure makes the educational component as important as the inspection itself, so you can be confident that you will have the knowledge and support to ensure you take full-advantage of the warranty’s benefits which can save you from paying out-of-pocket for repairs that may otherwise have been the fault of the builder or OEM manufacturer.
