Is my New House Broken?

When you build a new home, you expect things to be perfect right? Com'on now, you know you do! I don't blame you when you see a crack in the drywall or loose tile that you can jump to conclusions about the overall practices used when constructing your home.

The first step is simple, be sure to look at all the information related to warranties, repairs and defects from your builder BEFORE buying. This will put all the worst case scenarios to bed and allow you to peacefully enjoy your new home without being stressed.

If you do experience problems, also understand that certain types of imperfections are normal. Very often a builder will set a 30-90 day check up point where they will go around the house and inspect for any popped nails, cracks in the drywall seams etc.

As your home ages things will change as well. There are certain things with new homes today that there really is no true method of avoiding... read about an explanation of what Truss Uplift is for one example - you will see that the fix is simply planning for eventual movement.
