Owning a home is one of the biggest investments that can be made in life. As with any big investment, you want to ensure that there is enough coverage to keep it protected. When it comes to a manufactured home, there may be several separate warranties required to cover different parts of the home.
When you are considering which warranty options to choose, do your research wisely. Always request copies of the warranty so that you can later compare and contrast different packages from different retailers in order to determine what is best for you.
Some things to look out for and consider when researching and purchasing a warranty for your manufactured home are:
– How long the warranty lasts
– What is covered and what is excluded in the warranty agreement
– Keep copies of all of your records in a safe place. This should include any receipts, guarantees, canceled checks, contracts, serial numbers and other sensitive documents.
– If you have gotten work done by service professionals and it is not completed to your satisfaction, do not sign off on any orders that state that the job has been completely satisfactorily.
Your new manufactured home should come with a homeowner’s manual as well as a warranty for the manufacturer, retailer and appliances. The manufacturer’s warranty will cover any defects there may be in the structure of the home including plumbing, heating and electrical systems that were installed at the factory before the home was placed in its current location. This warranty may also include coverage for appliances that were installed in the home at the factory, but they may also be covered by a separate warranty. The retail warranty will outline the home warranty terms and what kinds of services are provided by the retailer.
It is very important that you take the time to read, study and research your warranties. Know what the warranty does and does not cover and research reviews about the different warranty companies you are considering. If there is anything you have a question or concern about, contact your retailer or homeowners association.
