Uncover Hidden Defects and Optimize Warranty Protection

A Crucial Step Before the Builder’s Warranty Expires

The 11-month warranty inspection is a critical inspection just before the builder’s warranty expires, which can last up to 2 years. This inspection is important to identify any defects in the home that may have occurred during ownership or were not previously discovered. Even if you missed the inspection when you bought your home because of the tight market, this is your chance to hold the builder responsible for any defects.
