RESALE VALUE – Your home is warranted for 10 years as shown on the front cover of your Warranty book. If you sell your home during that term, the balance of the warranty transfers automatically to the next buyer. That transferable home warrant is an excellent marketing tool when you offer your home for sale to prospective buyers.

PROTECTION – When Idea Homes LLC chose HOME of Texas as our warranty provider, we made the decision to provide you with a written and insured commitment that your home will be free from specified defects. Your HOME of Texas warranty is independently written and administered and remains in place for 10 years, regardless of what the future holds.

EXPERT SECOND OPINION – Even with a written warranty, misunderstandings may arise. If you disagree with us on whatever or not something should be considered as a defect, the limited warranty can be a valuable “measuring stick” for evaluating the issues. You benefit from third-party assistance with home warranty issues. The warranty standard included are based on accepting industry practices. The process to get HOME of Texas involved to mediate the issue and determine coverage is spelled out in your warranty book.

The HOME of Texas 10 Year Limited Warranty on your home identifies what is warranted, what is excluded and the duration of the Warranty.

  • In the first year, the Warranty applies generally to workmanship and materials.
  • In the first two years, portions of the major systems in your home are warranted. These systems include wiring, duct work and pipes.
  • For all 10 years, the Warranty includes protection on warranted structural elements in your home, as defined in your Warranty book. The Warranty identifies which part of a home are warranted, and the criteria for establishing a structural defect.
  • Your Warranty book spells out who is responsible for warranted repairs, defines basic terms that are important for you to know, and describes the process you will use if you think you have a warranted problem in your home.
  • Note that the Warranty is “limited” which means you are responsible for maintaining your home, from changing light bulbs to maintaining proper drainage patterns. Areas which are not part of the primary residence, such as driveways, are excluded from your Warranty and some products come with a manufacturer’s warranty.
