New Home Warranty: Your Questions Answered

When you build a new home, the last thing you want to worry about is what to do if something goes wrong. What happens if the furnace won’t light, or if a roof shingle comes loose? At Regal Homes, we’ve got you — and your home — completely covered with our new home warranty program.  

What is a Home Warranty?

Though it doesn’t happen often in new homes, systems and appliances can break down earlier than usual from routine use or even have unexpected defects. If this happens, it shouldn’t be the homeowner’s responsibility to pay for it or even spend time managing the repair work. That’s why Regal Homes offers a 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty to cover repair or replacement costs for up to 21 home systems and appliances in our new homes, including workmanship and structural elements. 

My Home is Brand New, Why Do I Need a Warranty?

At Regal Homes, we stand behind the quality of our construction which features superior materials, excellent design, and unprecedented value. But unforeseen problems can arise even in the best-built homes. That’s why we’re not afraid to offer a 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty for each and every home that we build. It’s not likely that there will be an issue with the workmanship, systems, or structure, but if something unexpected happens, we take care of it immediately, reducing any stress, worry, or financial burden on our customers. 

What Does A Home Warranty Cover?

The better question is… what doesn’t it cover? Our 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty covers up to 21 home systems and appliances, including the top five that cause issues in any home:

  1. HVAC repair and replacement
  2. Water heater repair and replacement
  3. Appliance breakdowns
  4. Plumbing leaks
  5. Stopped up drains 

It also includes these three major parts of new home construction:

Workmanship

Quality is important, especially in your new home. Your workmanship warranty establishes the standards applicable to the fit, finish, and materials used in the construction of your home. Fit refers to how well the parts of the finished product come together; finish refers to the completeness of work.

Distribution Systems

You will rarely see behind the walls of your new home, but essential functions such as electrical, plumbing, and mechanical systems are working behind the walls. Your distribution systems warranty establishes the standards for your home’s electrical, plumbing and mechanical systems. The wiring, piping and ductwork of your new home are addressed under this warranty.

Structure

While your home was carefully constructed and inspected, occasionally unforeseen problems arise even in the best-built homes. Your structural warranty addresses structural defects. A structural defect is actual physical damage to designated load-bearing elements caused by the failure of the load-bearing elements which affects their load-bearing functions to the extent that your home becomes unsafe, unsanitary or otherwise unlivable.

Shouldn’t Homeowners Insurance Take Care of It? 

No. A home warranty extends coverage to systems and appliances that a typical homeowners insurance policy leaves off. Particularly in a new home, when you’ve just made one of the most significant investments (of time and money!) of your life, the last thing you want to think about is any repair or replacement costs.
