I was wondering if anyone had any experience with third-party warranties?  How much do they cost?  Where do you get them (or recommend getting them)?  Anything that we should know about them? 

Thanks,
Doug

Doug - can you be more specific? Are you looking for an extended home warranty (i.e., the type usually provided when buying an existing home)?  Or a third-party warranty on an item in particular?

We used a company called StrucSure.  They have several products available. We bought the standard 1-2 year (workmanship and materials) and 10-year (major structural defects) warranty. The price depends on the house and our coverage cost about $3,000.

I am looking for a warranty that covers my house for at least the state minimum so that the builder of record has no warranty liability.

I used Bonded Builders for the last five homes I've built. I never had to use the warranty (thank goodness), but they made it easy to get all the paperwork done. Cost is $2.95 per $1,000 so a half-million dollar house is covered for $1,475.

The TRCC website used to list all the state-approved warranty companies:

trcc.state.tx.us/Consumers/state_min_warranties.asp

Hope that helps,

Mark M.
