Warranties

The job does not end when the last workman leaves your home.  The contract should specify a period of time for a warranty of the work done.  Usually this covers one year. 

There are two types of warranties.  The first is for minor things like nails not holding firm.  These minor repairs should be scheduled at your convenience.  The second is something major like a pipe leak or electrical issue.  In that case, contact your renovator immediately since this could have serious consequences for the home and your family. 

The products used can also have manufacturers’ warranties.  This would include appliances, flooring, HVAC, siding, roofs, etc.  At closing, you should get copies of all of those warranties, plus any operating manuals.  You should keep them in a safe place and date them to show when installed.
