There are many types of home warranties and we tailor our inspections to meet each specific need.

New Construction - One Year Warranty Inspection
This inspection is intended for newly constructed homes just prior to the end of the first year of ownership. The State of Minnesota requires all builders to provide a minimum of one-year warranty for most items in a new home. In addition, there is a two-year warranty covering all electrical, plumbing, heating and cooling systems as well as a ten-year warranty covering major structural items.

Most builders offer repairs through their service department but they ask the homeowner, to notify them of any deficiencies. If the contractor does not receive proper notice, they may not be required to make repairs.

Many manufacturer and construction defects are not visible to the untrained eye until it's too late. Experience tells us that most major construction defects go unnoticed for 3 to 5 years or more. Our experience and trained eye can often help reduce this risk.
New Construction - Two-Year Warranty Inspection
This inspection is intended for newly constructed homes just prior to the end of the second year of ownership. The State of Minnesota requires all builders to provide a two-year warranty covering all electrical, plumbing, heating and cooling systems.

Most builders offer repairs through their service department but they ask the homeowner, to notify them of any deficiencies. If the contractor does not receive proper notice, they may not be required to make repairs.

Home Warranty Insurance Coverage
Many Realtors provide, and home sellers obtain insurance policies that are intended to provide a home warranty for buyers. Some of these policies require a home inspection prior to providing full coverage. Home Inspections of Minnesota is authorized by insurance companies to perform these inspections. If we are to perform a buyer inspection we can perform a warranty inspection at no additional charge as long as we are notified in advance.
