Many Home Warranty contract end on the 12th month after the home closing date. It is unfortunate to have the hot water heater, appliances, HVAC system, roof, and other home systems fail on day 366. Sometimes these systems show early signs of malfunction a month before it breaks down and at other times it breaks down without warning. An 11th-month inspection is an attempt to recognize the early warning signs so that a component or system can be fixed while the home is under warranty.
So much is going on when a person moves into their home the first year that they fail to look over and review their home systems before their home warranty expires. Why not let Atwood's Home Inspection, LLC services inspect your home again so you can concentrate on where to plant your rose garden or planning your trip to the Kansas City zoo.
If a component that has been inspected as satisfactory fails in the home 6 months after the 12-month warranty then Atwood's Home Inspection, LLC services will give you your inspection fee money back.
Case example: Mary had a home inspection performed by Atwood's Home Inspection, LLC prior to closing on the property. There were several components that were repaired in her home to include replacing a GCFI outlet, having faucets replaced, and other items. She then had an 11th-month inspection completed and it appeared that the components and system in her home were working and functioning as designed except for her water heater which now appeared to be leaking. She was able to replace the water heater which saved her money because had she waited one more month the Home warranty would have been void. Next, 5 months later her roof started to leak. She does not have a home warranty plan to cover this. However, she does have the 5-year platinum protection plan and she files a claim. She pays the $500 deductible and Atwood's Home Inspection company gives her back the $200 for the inspection.
