To ensure your peace of mind that your new home has been finished to the highest standard it will be covered both during construction and after completion by the NHBC Buildmark Guarantee which provides you with a 2 year Builder Warranty in addition to cover by the NHBC from years 3 to 10 for the structure of your home.
Under the 2 year builder warranty we will provide a 12 month maintenance period at the end of which we will return to your home to rectify any items that have occurred as a result of the natural settlement of your new home. For the 2 year term we will rectify anything caused by our failure to meet NHBC standards which provide a benchmark for acceptable levels of design, materials and workmanship. During this period your boiler, appliances, fixtures and fittings will be covered by the appropriate manufacturers’ warranties.
During years 3 to 10 NHBC will provide insurance to cover the cost of putting right any physical damage caused in specified areas of your home such to floors, staircases, roofs, windows and doors as well as foundations, walls and below ground drainage for which you are responsible.
