Care & Maintenance Tips

Your home has been constructed with quality materials and the labor of experienced contractors. Prior to our using any material, it must meet our specifications for quality and durability. All work is done under supervision to attain the best possible results.

A home is one of the last “hand built products” left in the world. Although quality materials and workmanship have been used in your home, this does not mean that it will not require care and maintenance. A home, like an automobile, requires care and attention from day one. General homeowner maintenance is essential to providing a quality home for a lifetime.

We are very proud of the homes we build and the neighborhoods we build in, and we strive to create long-lasting value. This cannot be achieved unless you, as the homeowner, properly maintain your home and all of its components. Periodic maintenance is necessary because of a number of factors, such as normal wear and tear, climatic conditions, the inherent characteristics of various materials used in your home (such as wood), and normal service required by the mechanical systems. Over time, natural variations in temperature and humidity also impact your home. Many times, a minor adjustment or repair done immediately saves a more serious, time consuming and sometimes-costly repair later. Note also that failure to perform routine maintenance can void applicable limited warranty coverage on all or part of your home.

We recognize that it is impossible to anticipate and describe every detail that may be needed for good home care; however, we have covered many important topics. In addition, be certain to read the literature provided by the manufacturers of consumer products included with your home. Although much of the information may be familiar to you, some points may be significantly different from homes you have had in the past. The information from the manufacturers of consumer products in your home is not repeated here. Activate specific manufacturer warranties by completing and mailing the registration cards included with their materials. In some cases, manufacturer warranties may extend beyond the first year; it is in your best interest to be apprised of such coverage.

By caring for your new home attentively, you insure your enjoyment of it for years. The attention provided by each homeowner contributes significantly to the overall desirability of the community.

Below you will find warranty information and maintenance tips to help ensure your home is maintained at its highest potential. Take time to read through these tips in order to gain a better understanding of the different components of your new home.
