Once your addition has been built, your Design Build Firm or Building Contractor begins their final quality check process. All systems such as HVAC, Plumbing and Electrical go through a testing process to ensure proper operation. The entire construction area is thoroughly cleaned. The interior windows are cleaned, the floors get vacuumed and the outdoor area is swept with a magnet for any loose nails.
Upon full completion a your Design Build Firm or Building Contractor representative will do a walk-though with you and show you all of the features your new addition has. This is the time where you can see demonstrations on how to operate your new whirlpool tub, or get a quick lesson on replacing the air filter in your furnace. This will also be a good time for you to conduct a quality inspection of your own. If you see something that needs to be addressed, make sure you tell the representative right away. If it's a small item like a missing cover plate for a wall switch, they will be able to take care of it right away. If it's a more complex issue, like a window that doesn't operate smoothly, your contractor will schedule time to take care of this for you.
Once you have conducted a walk-through with your representative and are fully satisfied, we will ask you to sign a statement confirming your satisfaction. This form will be the release for the last payment. Once the last payment is received the dumpsters get hauled off, the porta-potty gets picked up and your Design Build Firm or Contractor will hand you a written structural warranty along with a materials and systems warranty. A comprehensive warranty covers all of the work performed by Your Design Build Firm or Building Contractor and its subcontractors.
