COMMON WARRANTY Q&A’s

You may occasionally encounter a switch, outlet, or circuit that is not working properly. Before requesting warranty service, please check for burned out or loose bulbs, tripped breakers, faulty electrical appliances, or tripped GFCI breakers that need to be reset on the outlet or surrounding outlets.

Due to the nature of organic materials used in construction, some contraction and expansion is expected as temperature and humidity change. All buildings undergo normal settling that may lead to minor cracks, chips, and nail pops in walls. To repair, clean off any loose edges. Then use a putty knife to apply and spread spackling across the area. For nail pops, set the nail before covering with spackling. Allow the area to dry thoroughly, then sand the area and a fine grit sand paper or sanding sponge to blend the repaired area with the surroundings. Once the area is dry, apply touch up paint to complete the repair.

It's your responsibility as the homeowner to recaulk as needed to improve cosmetic appearance and reduce the risk of high repair costs. When exposed to temperature and moisture changes over time, all caulking will shrink and lose effectiveness. Caulking should be regularly inspected and repaired as necessary. If any caulking around sinks, tubs, showers, toilets, windows, doors, siding, or ceramic tiles appears cracked, hardened, discolored or damaged in some way, it should be replaced.

To remove your window screens, raise the bottom sash of your window several inches and then flip open the sash tilt locking clips while pulling the sash towards you. Then, loosen the clips, tabs or pins on your window screen and gently pull the screen towards you and up through the opening. Please be aware that screens can be easily bent or torn and should be handled with care. To clean window screens and/or glass, use warm soapy water. Allow the screens and windows to dry thoroughly before reinstalling the screens.

Your HVAC system relies on clean filters to operate efficiently. As part of your regular home maintenance, your air filters should be replaced every 30 days or as needed. To improve performance, please ensure that your registers and returns are not blocked with furniture or other items and remain in an open position. Your HVAC should never be turned off for an extended period of time, and interior doors should be kept open as much as possible to allow air circulation to all parts of your home.

In the case of plumbing emergencies, the water to your entire home can be shut off. You should take time to familiarize yourself with the location of the emergency shutoff valves ahead of time. The main shutoff valves are usually located where the main water supply pipe enters the house, typically in a closet or pantry. In addition, there are usually individual shutoff valves located just below the plumbing fixture in bathrooms and kitchens. If you suspect a leak in the walls, attic or crawl spaces, you should turn off the main water valve to the home. The location of the main water shutoff valve will be pointed out to you during your homeowner orientation.

Maintenance of plumbing and toilets is a very important homeowner responsibility. Please note that the toilets in your home may be water saver or low water use toilets, meaning they use significantly less water than toilets found in older homes and may appear to be flushing slowly. You should never dispose of cotton swabs, dental floss, diapers, or other personal hygiene or care products in your toilets. To prevent clogging of pipes, never pour grease down your drains. Most pipes are easily cleared with a plunger. However, in the event of a stoppage or overflow, turn off the water at the shutoff valve below the fixture until the problem can be corrected.

The smoke detectors in your home are powered by the the electrical system, but also have a battery backup in the event of a power failure. You should periodically check and test all smoke detectors for proper operation as a safety precaution. If you notice a smoke detector with a red light or making a chirping noise, this indicates the detector needs attention. Most often changing out the battery corrects the problem. As a general rule, all smoke detector batteries should be replaced once a year. The easiest way to remember this is to change then when the time changes in Spring or Fall.
