Home Warranty Inspection

A home warranty inspection is performed 30 days prior to the end of your home warranty, which is typically given to you in the purchase of your home or by your builder. It’s essential to understand the condition of your home before your warranty expires, so that you have the time to address any issues before it is too late. In Washington State, builders are required to warranty all materials and labor on new constructions for a period of one year after closing/completion. Many times the one year warranty expiration marks the last opportunity to identify, document, and inform your builder of items that need repair or modification. All safety hazards, repairs, and modification should be professionally documented BEFORE your builder is relieved of their responsibilities under the one year warranty. Worthy Inspection Services specializes in working with buyers of new homes whose one year warranty is coming to an end.

We will thoroughly inspect your new home and develop a list of warranty issues that may be covered by your builder. A Worthy home warranty inspection offers the same professional and thorough evaluation of all major items inside and outside the home as those we perform for buyers. We’ll examine more than 600 of your home’s components for structural soundness, proper function, and code compliance. We will also conduct a thorough structural pest inspection on every home we inspect. In most cases, your inspection report will be delivered the same day, and we will explain our findings and recommendations.
