1-Year Warranty Home Inspection FAQs

It’s important to make an informed decision when purchasing a home, and our 1-year warranty home inspection is designed to give you the information and peace of mind you need. However, many of our clients have questions about the inspection process, what’s included, and much more. We’ve taken the questions we see most frequently and answered them for you below. Our goal is to ensure that you’re armed with the right information at all times, and that includes information about our 1-year warranty inspections.

A builder’s warranty typically only lasts a year or two for material and workmanship. However, major structural elements are often covered for up to 10 years. “Major structural elements” is a term that includes things like the roof and the foundation. Plumbing, electrical wiring, HVAC, and the like generally fall under the shorter one-to-two-year warranty.

At Kei Home Inspections, we pride ourselves on being as thorough as possible. We see issues with brand new homes all the time, and we want our clients to be armed with the information needed to protect themselves from predatory builders, shoddy workmanship, and poor construction practices. That’s why our 1-year home warranty covers such a wide range of concerns. These include the following:

  • The HVAC system, including the AC, furnace, etc.
  • The roof
  • The foundation
  • The framework
  • The plumbing/sewer system
  • The stovetop and range
  • The dishwasher
  • The water heater
  • An inspection for mold

We strongly recommend having a full 1-year warranty inspection performed before the builder’s warranty expires. Most of our clients are unaware that many of the systems and appliances in their homes are only covered for a year or two by the builder. They find themselves in a difficult situation when things go wrong and they have no coverage.

All of our home inspections come with a free 120-day warranty. Our warranty also pays 100% of the repair costs for covered items, and there is never a deductible to meet.

This is another name for a 1-year warranty inspection. It should be conducted roughly 11 months to a year after the purchase of a new home before the builder’s warranty expires.

How much do you really know about your builder and the subcontractors that work for them? Even the most reputable builders can make mistakes, and not all construction companies are on the up and up. A 1-year new home warranty inspection offers peace of mind, protection, and support.

You can purchase some home warranties without the need for an inspection. However, those come with deductibles that can be shockingly high. With our 1-year inspections, you never need to pay for support.

Our 1-year home inspections come with a free 120-day home warranty.

Yes! Our home warranty covers your major appliances, such as your stovetop, oven, dishwasher, water heater, AC, furnace, and more. Some other home warranties do not cover all appliances, so if you’re not purchasing through Kei Home Inspections, make sure to read the fine print for any exclusions.

While home warranties are not required, they are highly advisable. Simply put, they help hold your builder accountable for their actions, decisions, and failures during the construction process. You cannot count on inspections during construction to catch all potential problems – only an in-depth 1-year warranty inspection can do that.

Absolutely! We’re happy to provide you with a 1-year home inspection and a free 120-day warranty after you go through closing. Most builders will offer one to two years of warranty protection, so the most important thing is to have your home fully inspected before that period ends.

A home warranty inspection can take many forms. At Kei Home Inspections, we do more than the basics – we check all your major structural elements, but we also make sure that your appliances and home systems are in good condition. We also offer add-on services for detached structures, pools and spas, termites, and so much more. It’s really all about giving you the peace of mind that you deserve.

At Kei Home Inspections, we provide a full 120 days of protection after our in-depth home inspection. We’re also happy to offer additional coverage if you want further protection.

Most home inspections do NOT come with a warranty. The inspector will go over the home, provide you with the results of their inspection, and that’s it. At Kei Home Inspections, we’re different. We give you a 120-day warranty after the initial inspection.

Man start using sewer inspection camera.

Sewer Camera Inspection Services

Conventional plumbing solutions don’t really get to the root of the problem. That’s because they can’t see what’s going on inside those pipes. With our sewer camera inspection, we get a live view of the inside of your home’s plumbing and sewer pipes, including the pipes that connect your home to the municipal sewer system. Our sewer line camera inspection pinpoints problem areas, reduces the costs of repairs, and delivers the peace of mind you deserve.

You can add a sewer scope inspection to any of our home inspection services.
