It is common practice that most new home construction builds come with a 1-year warranty on the entire home. In some situations, especially with large-scale community building plans, these homes are often rushed to get people in quickly. This opens up the odds for many things to go wrong. It is ideal to schedule an 11 month warranty inspection in order to ensure everything is up to par, so it can be brought to the builders’ attention prior to the warranty expiring.
An 11 month home warranty inspection is a complete comprehensive inspection of the home.

This includes, but is not limited to, HVAC, foundation, electrical, water systems, and more.
