“ I had just had Jacob
Mermin Inspections at my house for a mold problem,
so I asked him about his Warranty Inspection because
my builder’s one year warranty was about to
expire. I was glad that I made the appointment because
he found a few small cosmetic problems and one large
roofing problem. He took some digital pictures and
wrote a concise report and I passed it along to my
builder. My builder sent someone out and confirmed
the problems and had them repaired immediately. I
am so glad I spent the money to have the inspection
done. It probably saved me thousands of dollars in
future roofing problems. I highly recommend having
Jacob Mermin Inspections do a Warranty Inspection
before your warranty expires” -Carol

Having your home inspected prior
to your warranty expiring is very important. At the
11th month of home ownership the builder is still
responsible for most defects.
Will the builder call to remind
you that your warranty is about to expire? Most do
not provide that courtesy.
All visible defects will be noted
in a written report. As many photos will be provided
as need to show the problem and will be included and
ready for presentation to your builder.
Any type of mold testing can be
done if moisture, or air quality issues exist.
This last opportunity inspection
is essential in providing you with the piece of mind
you deserve. This is a warranty provided to you by
your builder. If you feel there is a problem with
your home this is your last chance to protect your
investment and insure your family’s safety.
Do not feel bad for your builder even if you have
become friends. Remember he didn’t remind you
about your warranty expiring.
Having a Warranty Inspection by
Jacob Mermin Inspections is just good business.
