Warranty End Inspection
FINDING ISSUES IN YOUR BRAND-NEW HOME? DON’T PAY A DIME, HAVE YOUR BUILDER FIX IT FOR FREE
What is a Warranty End Inspection?
Almost all builders offer a one year warranty that covers defects and issues with their new builds. A warranty end inspection is a service where a home inspector thoroughly inspects your house and supplies you with a detailed report on their findings.
Why Do I Need A Warranty End Inspection?
The goal of a warranty end inspection is to identify any defects or safety hazards found. Once the inspection is done, we will provide you with a detailed report that will outline the issues found. You can then take our findings to your builder and request that they make necessary repairs/corrections before they are no longer responsible for them. This helps ensure that your new investment is protected and saves you money from not having to fix it yourself.
What Is the Cost of Not Having a Warranty End Inspection Done?
Cost can range from a couple hundred dollars to thousands depending on the issues. Check out the pictures below to see some of our findings in newer builds.
“We had our new construction home inspected after noticing a few issues and couldn’t be happier with the result! Jeff was on time, professional, friendly, and extremely thorough. He spent a lot of extra time addressing our concerns and patiently answering every question under the sun. He really went out of his way to make sure that all of our questions and concerns had been addressed before he left, and has even followed up in the months since to ensure nothing else has come up.
Following the inspection, we were thrilled to receive an extremely detailed report of all of his findings in very user-friendly format. Their program even made it easy to consolidate the findings into a list to present to our builders! My only regret is that we didn’t hire these guys before we purchased the house. Overall, we couldn’t have been happier with L&H and Jeff. We recommend them to everyone and won’t hesitate to use them again in the future!”
Air vent never installed in ceiling
Fixing this requires getting in the attic, no thanks
Soffit panels not installed properly
This gap is large enough to allow squirrel to get into the attic
Thermal anomaly under window which lead to moisture
This window was not sealed properly which lead to faster deterioration which then lead to water getting into the wall below
Disconnected dryer vent and improper vent used
Lint is supposed to vent outside. Here we see lint blowing into the attic and a grate installed on the roof vent instead of a flapper. Fire hazard!
Burner on gas cooktop not working
Cooktop is brand new, it should work, right?
Outlet has no power which means no power for garbage disposal
