Months after you’ve closed on your newly constructed home, a home inspection might be one of the last things on your mind. 

But there’s one more thing we highly recommend keeping in mind: a one year home warranty inspection.

Your warranty can protect you… but only as long as it lasts.

Many newly constructed homes are sold along with a 12-month builder’s warranty that covers the cost of repairs associated with constructional defects.

During a one year home warranty inspectionthe professionals at MKC Associates help homeowners identify and understand any repairs that should be fixed before their builder’s warranty expires. 

Don’t wait until it’s too late. Take action before your warranty expires.

The warranty is there to protect you; use it to your advantage while you can! This is your home and you shouldn’t have to deal with and pay for problems that are a result of poor work done the first time around.

You invested in this new home, so make sure you get what you paid for with a one year home warranty inspection. Let us help you get your home to exactly where it should be!



  • Structural issues (involving doors, windows, floors, roofs, etc)


  • Electrical system problems (wiring problems, circuit overloads, alarms & other systems, etc)


  • Plumbing issues (leaks, broken pipes, faucets, etc)


  • Heating and cooling issues (Overall HVAC system, air conditioners, heating, ventilation, etc)


  • Workmanship issues (tile, materials, drywall, paint, etc)

        One Year Home Warranty Inspection FAQs

        Still have questions? Check below to see if we’ve answered them. If not, check out our FAQ page or reach out to us.

        How long does an inspection take?
        Generally a buyer inspection takes between 2 to 4 hours. The time it takes to conduct a home inspection depends on the size, type, and age of the property. We take as much time necessary to fully and completely inspect the property.
        Can I just use the builder's inspector?

        We would not recommend this. Any inspector hired or brought in by the builder is their inspector. You want someone to inspect the building that is completely objective and who is there to look out for you, not the builder or contractor.

        And that’s exactly what you get with a one year home warranty inspection from MKC.

        Will all issues found be covered by my builder's warranty?

        Builder’s warranties can vary wildly in what they cover. You’ll need to look over your specific warranty to understand what specifically can be repaired under your warranty.

        What will my inspection report look like?

        Buyers Home Inspection

        Buyer’s Inspection

        Buying a home is likely one of the largest investments you’ll ever make. That’s why it’s so crucial that buyers understand exactly what they’re getting into. During a buyer’s inspection, we form a close partnership with the buyer. We’ll be your guide as we explain any property defects or issues we uncover. We’ll also answer any questions you have.

        Pre Listing Inspection

        Pre-Listing Inspection

        If you’re selling a home or property, it’s a good idea to have it inspected before it’s listed. Houses with a pre-listing inspection are more attractive to potential buyers. Pre-listing inspections give sellers the chance to work with us to uncover issues or necessary repairs. We’ll also give you our expert recommendations on what repairs to make before showing the property.

        New Construction Inspection

        New Construction HOME Inspection

        Before the final walk-through with the builder, a new home should undergo a new construction home inspection. We thoroughly search the home for building defects and anything that may have been overlooked during construction. This allows the builder to better prepare the home for its walk-through, which results in an easier and smoother move-in experience.

        11 Month Warranty Inspection

        ONE YEAR HOME Warranty Inspection

        Many newly constructed homes are sold along with a 12-month builder’s warranty that covers the cost of repairs associated with constructional defects. During a one year home warranty inspection, we help homeowners identify the repairs they should request before their warranty expires. This prevents you from becoming financially responsible for problems that should fall to the original builder.

        Re Inspection


        After a buyer’s home inspection, the buyer and seller of a home will come to an agreement about what repairs should be made before closing. Once those repairs are made, a re-inspection can be performed in order to ensure all agreements were honored and that the necessary repairs were made.

        Commercial Building Inspection

        Commercial Building Inspection

        During a commercial property inspection, we help buyers of commercial buildings better understand their potential new property before making the final purchase. Just like our home inspection services, we make sure that our commercial inspections are thorough and backed by our experienced and dedicated inspectors. We provide you with a detailed report that clearly breaks down our findings and recommendations.
