11th Month Warranty Inspections
Most builders offer a one-year warranty on a new home and one year warranties can at times be purchased for existing homes at time of purchase. If you have an existing warranty, before it expires give me a call and I will come out during the 11th month or sooner and perform a full home inspection before your warranty expires.
What you get with an 11th Month Home Warranty Inspection
My non-invasive inspection is based on observations of the visible and apparent condition of the interior and exterior of the structure, including its major systems and components. I also include a free home maintenance book which helps you know what components in your home will need maintenance and how often.
Infamous Black Mold (Stachybotrys chartarum)
Black mold acquired a very ominous reputation after being connected to a cluster of acute pulmonary hemorrhage/hemosiderosis (bleeding of the lungs) cases among infants in Cleveland, Ohio in 1994. Although black mold is less common than many other types of mold, it is not rare. While research into the connection between black mold and major health problems is still in progress, it should be treated similarly to other serious health threats like asbestos, lead, and radon.
After the Warranty Inspection
Following your inspection, you will receive via e-mail a comprehensive report, complete with photos, that includes information on any material defects observed on the date of the inspection. Armed with this information, you can take any necessary steps to hold your builder, his subcontractors, or warranty company to their warranties while they’re still in force.rs.
