A large number of construction defects go unnoticed for 3-5 years. However, most home builder warranties run out after only one year. Having your home inspected before the warranty expiration by a professional can save you thousands in future repair costs. Surveys have shown that 95% of newly built homes between 2000-2002 had a significant defect resulting in unexpected expense for the homeowner.
Why Would a New Home Need Repair?
When constructing a new home or commercial building, the builder or supervisor is seldom actually on site. Most have numerous sites they are responsible for and only spend 60-90 minutes a day at any given location and in some cases, not all job sites are visited every day. Most of the supervisor’s time on site is spent dealing with a large number of subcontractors and vendors. Each of these third parties serves a particular function and they want to work on their time schedule. The problem with this is there is a process to building a home or business and sub-contractors don’t like to wait on each other to complete the job. This chaos leads to corners getting cut that may go unnoticed for months or years leading to costly repair bills for the property owner.
