PRIME Home Inspections is committed to strictly following the Standards of Practice provided by InterNACHI and the State of Washington, which governs all rules and regulations for professional home inspectors. We will go above and beyond to give our customers the best value, protection, and decision making power for their money.

New Construction 1-Year Builder’s Home Warranty Inspections (11th Month Inspections)

Most “New-Construction” homes come with a 1-year builder’s home warranty and your 1-year builder’s home warranty will usually expire within the first year after closing.

Many times the 1-year warranty expiration marks the final opportunity to identify, document, and inform your builders of items that need repair or adjustment. All safety hazards, repairs, and adjustments should be professionally documented BEFORE your builder is relieved of their responsibility under the 1-year warranty.

PRIME Home Inspections, LLC specializes in working with buyers of new homes whose 1-year builder’s home warranty is coming to an end. Once you have your home inspected by a licensed, InterNACHI Certified Professional Inspector from PRIME Home Inspections, LLC, you will receive our written report, which will arm you with the knowledge and documentation necessary to discuss any problems with the quality of the materials or the workmanship of the home with your builder. Educated homeowners stand a better chance of getting the builder to correct those items that need repair, which is why 1-Year Home 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 builder. Our detailed and thorough inspections can reveal items that are safety hazards or are not performing their intended function.

Some of the elements we inspect in detail on 1-Year Home Warranty Inspections are:

✓ Potential Safety Hazards
✓ Exterior Paint and Stain
✓ Electrical System
✓ Plumbing System and Fixtures
✓ Fireplace and Chimney
✓ Exterior Siding
✓ Roofing
✓ Driveways and Walkways
✓ Garages
✓ Attic

✓ Insulation
✓ Exterior Windows and Doors
✓ Crawl Spaces and Basements
✓ Decks, Stoops, Porches and Railings
✓ Foundation
✓ Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning System
✓ Interior Windows and Doors

Annual Home Maintenance Inspections
