ABOUT YOUR WARRANTY
FCB Homes stands behind their workmanship. Owning an FCB home ensures you a timely response to your warranty requests. Please review the following summary below to learn more about the warranty process before submitting a warranty request. Please see the "what your warranty includes" section below for more information on what your warranty covers.
WHAT YOUR WARRANTY INCLUDES
Scheduled Check-Ups in the First Year
At FCB Homes we want you to rest easy knowing we will be back to check-up on you and your home at least three times in your first year of ownership. The goal of these check-ups is to ensure:
- All major systems in your home are functioning properly.
- Your warranty needs are met, and,
- To educate you about your new home and the necessary maintenance required to keep your home looking as beautiful as the day you moved in.
Appointments for your check-ups will be set at approximately: 30 days, 90 days, and 11 months with your Customer Care Coordinator.
Other Service Items
In addition to scheduled check-ups we realize that other items of concern may come up from time to time that may need immediate attention. These items can be handled by submitting a Warranty Request to the Customer Care Department. Warranty requests should only be scheduled for service items that need to be addressed prior to a regularly scheduled check-up. You, or your authorized representative must be present to provide access to the home for this type of appointment. To submit a request please click on Warranty Request above and an FCB Homes representative will contact you within 48 hours of your submission. Appointments can be made Monday- Friday 7:30 am to 3:30 pm.
Emergency warranty service is available after hours, on weekends and holidays by calling (209) 957-8112. For more information on what to do in an Emergency, please click here.
WARRANTIES WITH YOUR NEW FCB HOME
While we strive to build a defect-free home, we know that sometimes products don't always perform as they are intended to and that mistakes can be made. When either occurs, we will make the necessary corrections. Your new FCB home has a One Year Fit and Finish Warranty, an Enhanced Protection Agreement and a 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty. These documents were provided to you at contract when you purchased your home. Below, is a brief outline of each:
One year Fit and Finish Warranty
Your one-year fit and finish warranty was provided to you as part of your purchase agreement in your informational binder. It describes your rights and obligations as a homeowner in connection with the quality of specific materials and workmanship used to construct your home. This warranty covers original materials or workmanship as of the date of your close of escrow and continues for one year thereafter, unless otherwise noted.
Many manufactured items in your FCB Home may be warranted for more than one year. Examples of such items may be: your windows, front door hardware, faucets, etc. (warranty, manufacturers and timelines for coverage may vary from home to home). In order to have a manufactured item repaired please contact the manufacturer directly. If a manufacturer is not on the list below please feel free to call us and we will help you with getting you the information you need or inspecting the item, free of charge you are concerned about.
