Why New Home Buyers Should Ask for Structural Warranty Protection

There are a variety of different reasons why buyers prefer purchasing new construction homes from builders who include structural warranty coverage. Here are some reasons any new construction home you purchase should have a structural warranty.

It makes your home easier to sell. If you ever decide to sell your home, your structural warranty can be transferred to the new owner. This type of comprehensive risk management can help instill confidence in risk-averse buyers who are aware that a failing foundation can cost tens of thousands of dollars to repair. A structural warranty can also make your home stand out from similar properties in your area, making it a valuable asset if you’re trying to sell your home in a market with a lot of available inventory.

It doesn’t just cover the foundation. In addition to covering critical foundation systems, structural warranties are invaluable safeguards that insure against key load-bearing components, usually including:

  • Columns
  • Floor framing
  • Girders and beams
  • Load-bearing partitions and walls
  • Roof framing systems
  • Footings and foundation systems
  • Floor framing

It streamlines the repair process. If you ever do suffer some type of structural distress, your warranty won’t just save you money; it will save you time and worry. Without warranty protection, you will have to find experts and coordinate repair work that may include several different crews from several different companies. If you have a structural warranty, the provider will take care of everything, so you can continue with your work and other obligations without having to worry about planning or paying for repairs.
