Why Do I Need a One-Year Home Warranty Inspection?

All newly constructed homes include a builder warranty that covers workmanship and material defects. Prior to the 1-year anniversary it is important to ensure that any defect under the warranty is addressed by the builder. We facilitate this process with our exclusive Blue Tape Final Inspection. All too often, homeowners must pay for repairs themselves when it comes time to sell. With VBI, you’ll receive a detailed inspection that includes:

A list of specific items the builder must address

Documentation of any chronic issues

Assessment using Arizona Registrar of Contractors (ROC) Workmanship Standards

Blue Tape Final Inspection

Our valuable inspections are performed right before the one-year anniversary of your new home. If no prior inspections have been conducted, we perform a final inspection as detailed in our new construction inspection services, along with an assessment of the following:

  • Review any first-year issues.
  • Re-inspection of defects found during final inspection.
  • Blue Tape Final Inspection of cosmetic items.
  • Review roof again.
  • Check for plumbing leaks.

Benefit from the Full Value of Your New Home

Our valuable inspections are performed prior to the expiration of the 1-year builder’s warranty of your new home. If it is our first time on site, we perform a final inspection at this stage as detailed in our new construction inspection services. If we inspected the home during the initial construction process, we complete the 1-year warranty inspection as a re-inspection of:

  • Low insulation in attic
  • Bowed framing/walls
  • Damaged roof/tiles
  • Bath tile grout/caulking
  • Glass scratches or manufacturing defects
  • Stucco issues
  • Bath exhaust fan hoods stuck closed at exterior
  • Floor tile grout
  • Construction debris in walls or on site
  • Drywall cracks and nail pops
  • Paint defects

Our Blue Tape Final Inspection Method

Unlike our competitors, the highly trained inspectors at VBI administer a Blue Tape Final Inspection home warranty inspection. Blue tape is used in construction to denote where cosmetic items need to be addressed. We take this process a step further by reviewing each room and wall surface for defects and marking them with blue tape. By performing this specialized inspection, we are ensuring cosmetic issues, not simply the obvious ones, will be repaired.
