New home buyers may not realize the importance of a builder warranty inspection. Or, if they already have a warranty that the warranty will usually expire within the first year after closing. Getting your home warranty inspection at the end of the one year expiration is your final opportunity to identify and inform your builder of any items that need to be repaired or replaced. Repairs including safety hazards should be documented by a professional home inspector like the knowledgeable inspectors at KEHI before your home builder is relieved of his responsibility to you under the warranty period.
KEHI will work with you as your one year builder warranty is about to expire. Once your home has been inspected we will provide you with a comprehensive report so you have the knowledge and detailed documentation to discuss any problems regarding the quality of materials or workmanship with your home builder. Statistics indicate that an educated homeowner is better equipped at getting the builder to correct or repair any items that are not up to standard.
