11th-Month Warranty Inspection

An 11th-Month Warranty Inspection is the last phase of the New Construction Process. You have moved into your new home, and there might be some leftover problems that need to be addressed. Take advantage of your builder’s warranty by getting an 11th-Month Warranty Inspection

Why Get an 11th-Month Warranty Inspection

You want to get an 11th-Month Warranty Inspection because this is the final chance to inform your builder of any items in your home that need to be addressed. After this warranty expires, your builder is not responsible for addressing any issue you may find.

How will This Help me?

An 11th-Monty Warranty Inspection will provide documentation of any issues found in the newly built home. You will be in a stronger position and have legal leverage to have your builder fix any defects for you before the warranty expires.

What Makes This Different From My Pre-Settlement Inspection?

The difference between an 11-Month Warranty inspection and a normal home inspection is really just in the timing. We complete 11-month warranty inspections with the same thorough eye for detail as we do all our other home inspections. As this is often the last time you can work with your builder to address issues, your 11-Month Warranty Inspection is an invaluable time to get you as complete information as is possible.

Your inspector will treat this inspection as a new inspection, and check all aspects of the home for any potential problems. You will be given a complete overview of the state of your home, both inside and out.

Foundation and Footing Inspection

The footing supports the foundation or the concrete slab that the house ultimately rests upon. An inspection will check for deficiencies before the concrete being poured—the Phase before Pre-Drywall.​

Pre-Drywall Inspection​

The Pre-drywall inspection will help look for any deficiencies that otherwise might be overlooked or hard to determine once the drywall goes up.—the Phase after Footing and Foundation

Pre-Settlement Inspection​

An inspection will help assist in discovering any defects at the property before settlement—the Phase after Pre-Drywall. ​​
