What does Champion Builders Membership with RWC mean to you?
- RWC does NOT have an open door policy when it comes to Membership. Not every Builder is able to attain Membership with them the way Champion Builders has done.
-- Potential Members are examined for financial stability, customer satisfaction and technical competence.
-- As an RWC Member, we agree to comply with specific construction standards in order to have our homes warranted by them.
-- This is our assurance to you that Champion Builders is committed to standing behind our homes and providing you with peace of mind long after the sale.
The RWC 10 Year Limited Warranty on your home identifies what is warranted, what is excluded and the duration of the Warranty.
-- In the 1st year, the Warranty applies generally to workmanship and materials.
-- In the 1st 2 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 parts 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.
Value to you, the Homeowner
-- 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 warranty is an excellent marketing tool when you offer your home for sale to prospective buyers.
-- PROTECTION - When Champion Builders chose RWC 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 RWC 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 whether or not something should be considered 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 standards included are based on accepted industry practices. The process to get RWC involved to mediate the issue and determine coverage is spelled out in your warranty book.
