Damage resulting from alterations, deletions or additions by the homeowner, or improper maintenance, is excluded from the statutory warranty.
Where builder-supplied and installed appliances, ductwork and piping do not meet the acceptable performance, repairs shall be made.
Confirm proper operation of the HVAC system during the PDI. Defects discovered after the PDI will be covered by the statutory warranty if they result from the builder’s work.
