Caring for Your Home

A home is one of the last hand-built products left in the world. Once we have assembled the natural and manufactured materials, the components interact with each other and the environment. While we strive to build a defect-free home, we are realistic enough to know that we may make mistakes or that something in the home may not perform as intended. When either occurs, we will make necessary corrections. In support of this commitment, Martin Building Group provided you with a limited warranty which you received at your HomeOwner orientation when we completed your new home. In addition to the information contained in the warranty, the NAHB Residential Performance Guidelines details our one-year material and workmanship standards. These Performance Guidelines are to let you know what our quality standard is for the typical concerns that can come up in a new home. The Performance Guidelines describe our standards for each item and what we will do to remedy items that do not meet our standards. Our criteria for qualifying warranty repairs are based on typical industry practices in our region and meet or exceed those practices for the components of your home. However, we reserve the right to exceed these guidelines if common sense or individual circumstances dictate, without being obligated to exceed all guidelines to a similar degree or for all homeowners.
