Warranty Protection Overview
Buying a new home is one of the largest investments you will ever make, which is why it’s important to ensure your home comes with protection. As a Centricity℠ (formerly Bonded Builders® Warranty Group) builder member, Southern Creek Homes provides every home we build with 1 year of workmanship, 2 years of systems, and 10 years of structural home warranty protection.
Workmanship, Materials, and System Defects
During the warranty period on your new home, Southern Creek Homes warrants that the home will be free from:
Major Structural Defects
The warranty provides coverage for major structural defects that occur during the term of the warranty. A “major structural defect” is defined as actual physical damage to designated load-bearing portions of the home. This damage must affect the load-bearing function to the extent that the home becomes unsafe, unsanitary or otherwise unlivable. The repair will include only the steps necessary to ensure that the home is restored to its approximate condition just prior to the defect, not “like new” condition.
Subject to the limits provided in the warranty, Centricity℠ will a) repair or replace a covered major structural defect or b) pay the homeowner the reasonable actual cost of repair or replacement.
Centricity℠ is fully responsible to you, the homeowner, for total liability of all major structural defects arising during the term of the warranty. Liability is limited to the amount of coverage provided under the warranty as specified in your warranty document, but shall not exceed the original purchase price of the home. Repair and/or replacement shall not extend the term of the warranty. Refer to the warranty confirmation page in your document and review the full warranty document for all coverage exclusions.
