Your home is likely the biggest financial investment you’ll make in your life, and you definitely don’t want to cut corners with this process. One crucial thing you’ll need while working with a home builder is third-party warranty coverage.

Fortunately, when you choose to build a newly constructed home, your new digs will typically come with a one-year warranty. This greatly eases the stress of buying a new home, since you’ll be equipped with the tools and authority to fix any mistakes you come across. Most likely, this will include requests while the home is settling or something that you might have missed from your final walk-through, including nail pops, door adjustments, or paint adjustments.

Fortunately, many of these issues that you might encounter in the first few months in your new home can be easily resolved. A home warranty will protect you in the instance that you have a nasty discovery in your new home, saving you costly repair bills or a stressful legal battle. Having the peace of mind involved with knowing you’re covered in case of an emergency is one of the biggest benefits you’ll receive when you build a new home from scratch.

You can make the most of your warranty by hiring a third-party inspector just under a year after buying your home. This way, an impartial expert can walk through your new home and check for structural, electrical, or plumbing issues. You’ll receive a report, including photos, of any issues discovered and ensure that your builders’ contractors and subcontractors take care of it.
