Builder Warranty Coverage

Providing Coverage for America’s Builders of Integrity

Covering your newly built homes

Quality Builders Warranty is proud to offer builder warranties to the nation’s finest homebuilders. Designed to protect a broad range of home systems throughout the lifespan of the warranty, QBW’s builder warranties offer the robust liability protection that homebuilders can trust.

How Does a Builder Warranty Work?

During the first two years of coverage, builders assume liability for specified defects in workmanship and materials that occur as a result of non-compliance with QBW’s warranty standards. Additionally, builders will also assume responsibility for any major structural defects as defined in the warranty during the first two years. Once this two-year period passes, QBW assumes the responsibility to repair or replace any major structural defect through Liberty Mutual.

Our 10-Year Builder Warranty Explained

Quality Builders Warranty offers a clearly defined timeline of coverage so builders fully understand the breadth of their liability protection.

Throughout the duration of the 10-year period, all QBW warranties are automatically transferable to subsequent buyers, offering continued protection for the builder as well as the homeowner.

Year One

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 Two

Builder warrants the home against specified defects in 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.

Liability Protection

QBW members’ liability is limited to the first two years of the warranty*. Programs operating under the Risk Retention Act, however, may increase the builder’s liability beyond this two-year timeframe. QBW is proud to be the nation’s only home warranty program backed by a nationally licensed insurance carrier like Liberty Mutual. When it comes to limiting liability, there’s no better option than QBW!

* Due to state requirements, coverage in IN and VA differs. Contact our office for further information.
