Paint touch-up kits are provided to our homeowners upon closing. This includes each of your paint selections, a cabinet paint pen and ding filler for you to use on those on-going touch-ups, nicks, and scratches that are not covered by warranty.
While we utilize the highest quality caulking, over time it tends to shrink. This is a natural characteristic of this material. As such, over the course of your ownership, we highly recommend regular re-caulking of your home (interior, exterior, and “wet” areas such as tubs, showers, and backsplashes).
Granite countertops are made from a natural material, and as such, they will have minor imperfections. This is perfectly normal and to be expected. For their protection, your countertops were sealed upon installation, but are not stain-proof. Over time, countertops may develop a patina (i.e. a change in color). This is a normal occurrence and to be expected. To prevent unwanted stains and other damage, we recommend that you clean any spills as soon as possible, and protect your countertops from sharp objects, heat, and abrasives.
Cracks in your sheetrock and paint are a normal occurrence over the first years in your new home as it adjusts and settles. Your local hardware store has a large variety of products that can be applied to hairline cracks to address these issues. Hairline cracks are not the result of construction defects.
