New Construction/One Year Warranty Inspections

A one-year warranty inspection (sometimes called an 11-month inspection) is relevant to homeowners who purchase custom homes or move-in-soon properties, such as those in a residential community like West Lake.

When you purchase a new-construction home, the builder typically extends a one-year home warranty guaranteeing specific issues that may arise in the first year of homeownership.

Scheduling a 1-year warranty inspection can help you address any existing or potential issues while they are still covered under your builder's warranty. You'll want to schedule this inspection at least a few weeks before the end of your builder's warranty to ensure there's enough time to submit any claims on it. This is why it's sometimes called an 11-month inspection.

A recent customer shared a testimonial of their experience hiring 5th Avenue Building Inspections to perform a one-year warranty inspection:

"I was asked by my builder to hire an independent company to inspect an issue that has been going on and has had no resolution…Once I called 5th Avenue Building Inspections, explained the issue, and [shared] that the 12-month window from the builder was coming up, they fit me right into the schedule. Joey came out, listened to what has been going on, and got working. I received a detailed report that showed some gaps that need to be addressed. I sent the report to the builder and they have scheduled a date to come out to address those issues. More importantly, he [Joey] educated me on a few other things in regards to a new home. He even pointed out another issue that was not relevant to what I called him for…and since has been fixed." - T. Jaber
