10-Year Home Builder Warranty

America’s Premier Provider of 10-Year New Home Warranties

builder Home warranty Program

Providing home builders with a quality warranty product they can trust is what every builder hopes to do. Quality Builders Warranty helps make this possible by offering builders the 10-year new home warranties they need to provide their customers the peace of mind they deserve. Backed by Liberty Mutual, QBW is the only 10-year home warranty program backed by a national insurance carrier of this size.


What is a Builder Warranty?

A builder warranty is different from a home warranty that’s purchased by a homeowner. Builder warranties apply to new home construction and usually cover any issues with materials, central in-home systems that were installed, workmanship, and other structural elements of the home.

At QBW, our warranty standards use clearly stated language to ensure complete understanding of coverage between the customer and the builder. When it comes to limiting liability for the nation’s best builders, QBW’s nationally licensed insurance backing is the industry gold standard.

The standard 10-year Warranty for Home Builders

Our 10-year warranty for home builders offers a comprehensive timeline of coverage:

Year 1

The builder warrants the home against specified defects in workmanship and materials that are the result of non-conformity with QBW’s warranty standards, as well as any major structural defects as defined in the warranty.

Year 2

The builder warrants the home against specified defects in the wiring, piping, and ductwork, as well as any major structural defects as defined in the warranty.

Years 3 - 10

Should any major structural defect (as defined by the warranty) occur during this period, QBW will replace, repair, or pay the reasonable cost of the repair or replacement through its insurer.
Throughout the 10-year period, the warranty is automatically transferrable to subsequent buyers, protecting both the builder and the homeowner for the long-term. As a member of QBW, builders’ obligations are limited to only the first two years of the warranty.* Programs that operate under the Risk Retention Act can increase the builder’s liability beyond this two-year period.
* Due to state requirements, coverage in Indiana and Virginia differs. Contact our office for further information.
