When buying a new build, you want to be sure that there won’t be a list of jobs to be completed in terms of property maintenance just months, or even weeks, into your residence. Moving into a new build to learn that ‘this and that’ needs repairing or improving is frustrating. Our builders in Exmouth and Exeter have noted a few things to look out for when purchasing a new build home and what you should be checking if you have already moved in.

Exeter & Exmouth Builders – Sorting New Build Defect Issues

Maybe your repair warranty has run out, you don’t have a warranty or the new build company that built your house are failing to fix the issues that have arisen to an acceptable level. Our builders Exmouth are here to solve the issue once and for all by, firstly, identifying the cause of the issue before going on to carry out the right solution. There can be a whole host of issues that occur with new builds, and as an established construction company in Devon, there’s not much our Exmouth builders have not seen.

Typical & Grating New Build Defects

The majority of new build companies work in clauses to the warranty, which hold them responsible for a small portion of the defects that might rear their head. This means that they are only contractually obliged to sort out a small number of defects, leaving you to fend for yourself. If you discover any of the following defects that need sorting, give our trusted builders in Exmouth a call:
