New Construction 1-Year Warranty Inspections

Your one year builders warranty will expire usually within the first year after closing. Many times the one year warranty expiration marks the final opportunity to identify, document, and inform your home builder of items that need repair or adjustment. All safety hazards, repairs, and adjustments should be professionally documented before your home builder is relieved of their responsibility under the one year warranty.

GreenLight specializes in working with buyers of new homes whose one year warranty is coming to an end. Once you have your home inspected by our professional, licensed, and certified home inspection company and you receive our written report, you will have the knowledge and documentation to discuss any home problems with the quality of the materials or the workmanship with your home builder. Educated homeowners stand a better chance of getting the home builder to correct those items that need repair which is why 1-Year Builder Warranty Inspections are so important.

We will thoroughly inspect your new home and develop a list of warranty issues that may be covered by your home builder. Our detailed and thorough inspections can reveal items that are safety hazards, construction defects or systems that are not performing their intended function.
