Homeowner Maintenance Tips and

Performance Standards

Homeowner Maintenance Tips

We provide this portion of the New Home Handbook to offer maintenance suggestions. It does not imply any guarantees or warranties other then those specifically contained in the 2-10 Warranty. Please read the following and keep it handy for reference when questions or emergencies arise. It can save you money by helping you keep up with the occasional minor repairs and by keeping major repairs to a minimum.

There are several thousand component parts in a new home. The information contained herein will assist you when questions arise regarding the maintenance and care of the products used in construction of your home. As common to many products, proper use and care during the initial ‘breaking-in' period will assure greater service during ownership.

A general knowledge of proper maintenance and an understanding of the materials used in the construction of your home is helpful. The following information provides maintenance suggestions and the extent of the limited warranty of each product in your home.
