What Is Specifically Covered Under a 2-10 HBW?

The one-year workmanship warranty begins on the day of closing. It covers any defects in the quality of the construction or materials during the first year of ownership. Items covered under this portion of the warranty include:

  • Door panels
  • Countertops
  • Exterior siding
  • Hardwood floors
  • Drywall
  • Fireplace
  • Interior trim
  • Carpet
  • Paint
  • Exterior siding
  • Ceramic tile
  • Roof covering

The two-year systems warranty offers surety coverage for your electrical, HVAC and plumbing systems for two years from the closing date. Under that agreement, Cayman Builders agrees to fix any defects in these systems, such as:

  • Ductwork
  • Electrical wiring or panels
  • Waste piping
  • Supply piping

The 10-year structural warranty offers complete coverage of any structural defects from the day of closing. The home structure refers to the load-bearing elements of your home, so any defect that compromises their function can make it unsafe. Items covered under the structural warranty include:

  • Floor framing
  • Foundation
  • Columns
  • Beams
  • Load-bearing walls
  • Roof framing

What’s the Difference Between a Warranty and Insurance?

Home warranties sometimes get confused with homeowner’s insurance. They are distinct, yet complementary. A homeowners insurance policy covers the losses from unfortunate events over which you or the builder have no control, such as:

  • Fire
  • Storms
  • Vandalism

On the other hand, warranties offer coverage for fixing or replacing parts of your home from normal wear and tear. HBWs cover:

  • Building materials
  • Mechanical systems
  • The building’s structure

What’s the Basis of the 2-10 HBW?

The 2-10 HBW is based on recommendations by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requirements for homeowners trying to get Federal Housing Administration (FHA) mortgage insurance. These requirements are spelled out in their Code of Federal Regulations at Title 24 CFR 203.200 et seq. 2-10.

The HUD also requires the 2-10 HBW. While HUD doesn’t specify what defective workmanship means, the HBW uses the Residential Construction Guidelines’ standards, which is published by the National Association of Home Builders. These are the guidelines followed closely by Cayman Builders in the best neighborhoods in Florida and Georgia.

The 2-10 HBW wasn’t designed to include every conceivable problem that could occur with a home because it has to be affordable for consumers. Since the year 2000, slightly more than $100 million has been paid out in claims. The low number is due to the HBW’s stringent qualifications for their builders. They look at factors that make the company credible and trustworthy, such as:

  • Financial strength
  • Construction experience
  • Building volume requirements
  • Risk management requirements
