General Contracting 101 - Tip #4 General Contractor Warranty

As with almost all builds, your general contractor should provide you with a limited 1-year warranty for their work. This may be a separate document or a part of your contract, but you should always request one in writing before signing a contract. The limited warranty should list out exactly what is covered and what is not. For example, if you are completing a remodel, the warranty will exclude any of the existing structure that was not touched by the contractor.

Here are some of the items to look for in your limited warranty agreement (note -this is not an extensive list):

  • Owner and Contractor

  • Location of the property

  • Start and end date of the warranty

  • What work is being warranted

  • What is excluded from the warranty

  • Any owner responsibilities

  • Steps to follow when requesting warranty claims

  • How claims will be remedied

  • Etc.

Next week we'll cover why having an architect is beneficial.
