Protecting your margins and managing risks are crucial to continued success during a housing downturn. The average cost of a structural defect ranges between $75,000 and $125,000 per claim. Without a solution, these unexpected and expensive issues can eat into your margins and do devastating financial harm to your business.

Whether you’re a volume builder or custom builder, a 2-10 HBW Structural Warranty can mitigate this risk. With a 2-10 HBW Structural Warranty, you can transfer the financial risks that structural defects can create off your books.

Additionally, a 2-10 HBW Structural Warranty provides you with access to local experts and timely solutions to structural defects.

As a 2-10 HBW Builder Member, you get access to the following:

  • Sales training and materials to help your sales team show the value of a structural warranty from the buyer’s perspective, which shows the added value they’re getting when they work with you.
