New Home Warranty Inspection or 11th-Month Home Inspection
As home inspectors, we recognize that not every home-buyer will purchase a home inspection for their newly built San Antonio home. All these closing costs add up, and new home-buyers, who are often first-time home buyers, don’t always see the immediate value of a home inspection, especially on a brand new house!
Because of this, we offer the New Home Warranty Inspection to ensure that our clients who recently purchased a new home in San Antonio can make sure any structural defects present within their home are fixed before their home warranty expires!
What is an 11th-Month Home Inspection?
In short: A home inspection to address the flaws found in new homes. In a perfect world, buying a new home in San Antonio would mean the homeowner wouldn’t have to worry about expensive problems or repairs with their home for the next decade. After all, the wear of nature and time on a homes components should be non-factors on such new materials.
Back in reality though, your home was built as fast as possible by a for-profit developer, using the lowest bidder for each trade, with the absolute cheapest materials possible, installed by absolute cheapest laborers the contractors could find. This is why the p-trap in under your sink already leaks, your new roof is missing shingles that were never installed, your concrete is cracking all over the place, and that one bedroom is way hotter than the others. Luckily for you, your builder provided you with a warranty, often lasting 12-months from the close date, where any issues with the home that come will be fixed on their dime.
Why Do I need an 11th-Month Home Inspection?
The purpose of the Warranty Home Inspection: to inspect and detail any issues with the house so that you can make the builder fix their mistakes and avoid any costly repairs yourself. These inspections are typically preformed 4-6 weeks before the one-year anniversary of closing, hence the industry phrase “11th-month Inspection”. We prefer to preform the warranty inspection as early as possible so that any work or repairs preformed by the builder’s contractors can be reinspected before the warranty expires.
Our San Antonio 11th-Month Inspections are preformed to the same rigorous and comprehensive standards of our buyer’s inspection, so that you will see your home through the eyes of a buyer once again and can make your case to the home builder to have the required fixes performed on their dime.
