    It’s 3 a.m. and you’re up to check on the baby. Nightlights guide your way, but when you flip the light switch in the bedroom, illumination never comes. In the kitchen, the cabinet door’s soft close is, well, too soft. A blemish on the board-and-batten siding catches your eye every time you pass. It’s issues like these (and others, big and small) that are covered under a new home warranty.

    By far one of the greatest (and perhaps most overlooked) benefits of buying a new home is the builder’s limited warranty that accompanies it. Buying a new home is likely the biggest purchase your family will make — a new home warranty helps you protect it.

    Warranty 101: What is a new home warranty?

    Warranties vary from builder to builder. Every builder, especially the award-winning builders at Sterling Ranch, is proud of its product and stands behind its quality craftsmanship. But building a home from the ground up is never perfect. For these occasions, builders have new home warranties in place to ensure every homeowner is a satisfied one. Though the fine print may vary, most builders offer a:
    • Ten-year structural warranty: covers against defects in major structural elements;
    • Two-year mechanical warranty: covers the delivery of the home’s systems (wiring, ductwork, plumbing, etc.); and a
    • One-year functional warranty: covers workmanship and materials (paint, doors and windows, glass, carpentry, etc.).
    Manufacturer warranties, like those for a new roof, hot water heater and air conditioner, often carry even longer warranties. Appliances are often not included in the builder’s warranty, but upon registration, they do carry their own warranties directly from the manufacturers. Be sure to ask your builder for the details of the limited new home warranty it offers (what’s included, what isn’t, the lifespan of the warranty and so on).

    Enjoy the benefits of a new home warranty

    Every family in a new home at Sterling Ranch can rest easy knowing the home is under warranty. Here are some benefits this warranty provides:

    Peace of mind

    At Sterling Ranch, we wish for residents to live joyfully. But to live a life of joy, one must first have peace of mind. At its essence, this is what a new home warranty offers new homeowners. This warranty allows you time to move and settle into your new home without worrying about any unforeseen issues. High-quality craftsmanship is a foundation for this peace of mind, but it’s a relief to know that if a problem does arise, the builder will take care of it quickly and without cost to you.

    Financial protection

    Simply put, a new home warranty controls out-of-pocket expenses. These funds are then freed up to go toward the more exciting items in your home that add style and bring you joy, such as window treatments, floor coverings and furniture.


    Making a warranty claim is simple and convenient and saves time — no need to search the web for contractors in the area and spend hours corresponding with and vetting the right fit.

Other builders, such as Taylor Morrison, offer a warranty portal where you can view all warranty aspects of your home: what’s covered, claims submitted and the status of work completion. Best of all, it’s easy to make a claim:

    • Navigate to the warranty request page or portal
    • Add your contact information
    • Select a time that works best for your schedule
