The First Year
The builder warrants the home against specified defects in workmanship and materials that are the result of non-conformity with QBW’s warranty standards, as well as any major structural defects as defined in the warranty.
The Second Year
The builder warrants the home against specified defects in the wiring, piping and duct work, as well as any major structural defects as defined in the warranty.
The Third through Tenth Years
Should any major structural defect (as defined by the warranty) occur during this period, QBW will replace, repair or pay the reasonable cost of the repair or replacement, through its insurer.
Throughout the 10-year period, the warranty is automatically transferable to subsequent buyers, protecting the builder as well as the homeowner.
As a member of QBW, the builder’s obligations are limited to only the first two years of the warranty.* Programs that operate under the Risk Retention Act can increase the builder’s liability beyond this two-year period. When it comes to limiting liability, QBW’s nationally licensed insurance backing is simply the best option.
Green Warranty Option
Recognizing the growing demand for energy-efficient and increasingly “green” homes, QBW has become the first to create a warranty that is specifically designed to comply with the National Green Building Standard set forth by the NAHB. The warranty serves as an ideal complement to certified green and energy-efficient homes. Additionally, the warranty communicates to homebuyers that each home with a QBW Green Warranty meets the National Green Building Standard™.
