Looking for a “Traditional” New Home Warranty?
Or Do You Prefer a More Customized Michigan Warranty?

Builders Warranty in Michigan

RWC allows Builders in Michigan to make the call.

When you use an RWC structural warranty, you’re using a better warranty for new homes than anyone else out there, especially all those builders who basically self-insure.  So you have to tell your buyers about it before they will understand what the value is to a homeowner.  And we are pretty certain that the average homeowner today will be impressed with the level of concern you demonstrate by adding this program to your Michigan new home construction project.

Check out your options:

Traditional 10 Year Warranty Coverage

Historically, the standard 10 Year Major Structural Defect (MSD) warranty is what this industry has provided and is the coverage Builders have become accustomed to over the last 35 years. Ten year new home warranties have been an effective way to deal with a variety of issues including customer service, marketing, government-financed loans and mandated new home legislation.

  • 10 Year Warranty Term.
  • 1 Year of coverage provided for workmanship & materials.
  • 2 Years of coverage provided for selected portions of the mechanical systems.
  • 10 years of coverage provided on major structural components.
  • Builders may choose from 2 types of structural defect warranties: either “Major Structural Defects” or “Designated Structural Elements”.
  • Options including Day 1 Structural Coverage provided by RWC’s insurer are available.
  • Pricing based on rate per thousand of final sales price.
  • FHA/VA approved warranty program.
  • Builder liability is limited to first 2 years.
  • “Structural Only” warranty coverage is also available.

Customized State Warranty Coverage

Our Customized State Warranty (CSW) Program is the most unique and specialized new home warranty program in the industry. Each individual state warranty is crafted to meet that state’s statutes regarding builders’ structural warranties. In Michigan, the statute is 10 years but requirements for other types of coverage are different than our traditional plans.

Other unique features of our Michigan CSW Program include:

  • 10 Year Warranty Term.
  • Day 1 Structural Coverage provided by RWC’s Insurer.
  • Workmanship, Materials and Mechanical Systems are covered for 1 year.
  • Structural Coverage on Designated Structural Elements is provided for 10 years.
  • Pricing based on low flat rates per home.
  • Builder liability in the Michigan CSW program is limited to 1 year only.
  • New homes with sales prices less than $2 million are eligible for the Michigan CSW program.
