Your brand new home is almost complete, and it is time to start thinking about moving in. Before you do, there are some additional things you should consider. One of those things is getting a home warranty. With your house being brand new, appliances breaking down or structural damage are the least of your worries, but it is always best to plan ahead. Here is why you should have a home warranty.
Protect Against Structural Damage
A home warranty for the structure of your home is a good idea, even if you trust the contractor who supervised the building of your home. Sometimes defects in materials are not easily noticed by the contractor, but can cause structural issues later on down the road. A home warranty for this purpose lasts ten years on average, and it is a worthwhile investment just in case something happens, particularly to a load bearing wall.
Protect Your Appliances
Your appliances are also brand new, and you probably don’t have to worry about them breaking down anytime soon. But appliances do sometimes have issues, and you don’t want to have to come up with money at the last minute for a repair or replacement. A home appliance warranty will cover any necessary repairs for the duration of your warranty, usually no more than ten years.
Just in Case
Of course, if your home is built by a reputable contractor such as Gloger Construction, you probably don’t have anything to worry about, and you might decide to forego the home warranty. Any builder who offers a home warranty should automatically be trusted more than a contractor who does not warranty their work.
