Buying a newly constructed home often becomes the biggest purchase you will ever make and one that you will want to protect. High on your shopping list should be selecting a builder who provides a new home structural defect warranty. Skobel Homes proudly provides every home we build with 10 full years of structural home warranty protection from the nation’s leading home warranty company, 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty® (2-10 HBW).
2-10 HBW only accepts the best builders into their program. To become a member, Skobel Homes went through an extensive screening process that measures our building practices against strict underwriting guidelines to ensure we maintain a high quality product in addition to a careful inspection of our workmanship.
When you buy a Skobel Home, you have the satisfaction of knowing that your builder’s warranty obligations are clearly defined in writing and backed by a strong warranty insurer. Skobel Homes will enroll your home in the warranty program at the date of closing. With the purchase of your new home, you’ll receive a copy of the structural home warranty contract that explains what is covered as well as a maintenance booklet to give you tips on how to care for your home.
From the date of closing, you will have the best in coverage and protection for 10 years on qualified structural defects. The warranty is fully transferable, increasing the resale value of your home. It is your responsibility to read the warranty and understand it, so please contact us with questions about any part of the warranty you do not understand.

Prior to Closing, you will have a scheduled Homeowner Walkthrough where we will provide you with your Warranty Booklet and New Home Maintenance Manual. These documents answer many common questions, such as use and maintenance guidelines, troubleshooting tips and emergency information.
As you settle into your home during the first year, you may find items that need further adjustment. In addition, you may have questions about the Builder’s Warranty, home maintenance, heating and air conditioning, or other home systems. Many of the answers are included in your manual and online in this Owner Care section. We also want to assure you that the Skobel Homes team is available to assist you in these areas if you have any issues or questions.
