Move in with Peace of Mind

Move in with peace of mind

When you receive the keys to your new home, you are also receiving the keys to a Post Sales service commitment. Our one-year builder’s warranty, externally provided Extended Warranty, and applicable manufacturers’ warranties give you the confidence that should issues arise, they will be taken care of timely and to your satisfaction.

Post Sale Service

Upon taking possession of your new home our relationship certainly hasn’t ended; it’s just begun! Our In-House Post Sales service department will work with ALL buyers after the sale on a timely basis. Our client interface warranty database and lasting subcontractor relationships ensure that post-sales concerns are appropriately documented and tracked through resolution. Our satisfaction objective is to become your builder for life!

Our Builder’s Limited Warranty expires one year after closing, but you will still have the peace of mind of your applicable manufacturers’ warranties. Happe Homes is also one of very few local builders to provide an extended warranty through RWC (Residential Warranty Company). RWC builders must meet stringent performance criteria, and are rescreened annually to ensure performance remains consistent with membership standards. “If your builder provides the RWC Limited Warranty, you can be certain that your home was built by a qualified professional.” RWC

This extended warranty provides assurance that your investment is well protected. The RWC Limited Warranty is also an excellent sales tool. If you decide to sell your home during the term of the warranty, the remaining warranty protection automatically transfers to future owners.”
