Why Should You Care if Your Builder Provides You
With a New Home Structural Warranty from HOME of Texas?
Home warranties issued by HOME of Texas are insured by a Texas Property & Casualty Insurance Company. HOME’s warranty plans are written for Texas builders who deal with unique soil conditions everyday.
HOME has been in the new home warranty business for nearly 40 years and, together with national affiliate Residential Warranty Company, has issued warranties on over 3.5 million homes. More importantly for you, we’ve managed the dispute resolution process between the homeowner and the builder on thousands of homes over the years.
Your home is warranted for the duration of the warranty period selected for your home by your Builder. If your home is sold during that warranty term, the balance of the warranty transfers automatically to the next homeowner. That transferable home warranty is an excellent marketing tool when you offer your home for sale to prospective buyers.
Expert Second Opinion
Even with a written warranty, Builders and Homeowners don’t always see eye-to-eye. If a dispute arises between you and your Builder regarding whether or not something should be considered a defect, the limited warranty document can be a valuable ‘measuring stick’ for evaluating the issues. You benefit from third-party assistance with home warranty issues. The warranty standards included are based on accepted industry practices. The process to get the warranty company involved to mediate your dispute and determine coverage is spelled out in your warranty book.
When your Builder selects a HOME of Texas warranty for your new home, you are being given a written and insured commitment that your home will be free from specified defects. Your HOME warranty is independently written and administered apart from your Builder. Regardless of what the future may hold for your Builder, your home warranty remains in place for the duration of the warranty period. The average cost to repair a major structural failure exceeds $30,000. Having a written and insured warranty in place on your home means that warranted structural components will be repaired without causing you serious financial hardship.
