Maximize Your Builder’s Warranty with an Inspection at 11 Months

Building a brand new home is both an exciting and rewarding experience, as you get to customize each feature according to your family’s needs and wishes. However, it’s also a considerable investment of your time, money, and resources that you want to protect at all costs. Evolve Property Inspections offers 11-month warranty inspections to help secure your investment and ensure your home remains in top condition. Let’s explore this type of home inspection and why it’s critical for every owner of a newly-built house at the 11-month mark.

11-Month Warranty Inspection

Why Inspect a New Home at 11 Months?

The clock starts ticking on the builder’s warranty once you have taken possession of your new home. If any defects become apparent within the first year of living in your new home, the builder is responsible for the repairs. After the warranty is up, you are responsible for any necessary repairs. We recommend an inspection at the 11-month mark as your last opportunity to find something before the builder’s warranty expires.

What Will the Inspector Look For?

We will check many of the same interior elements of your home that we would check for a typical single-family home inspection, such as the HVAC system, plumbing, electrical, foundation, and structural components, just to name a few. We will also check the external elements on your property, like your driveway, gutters, decks, and framing.

What Defects Are Typically Found?

We have seen many minor and even some significant defects over the years at our 11-month warranty inspections. You might have hairline cracks in your walls, foundation, or flooring, which can unfortunately become structural damage after six months. We have also seen mold in the AC ducts, nails popping, and loose toilets. The are all issues that should be repaired on the builder’s dime.
