What does a warranty tell you about your purchase?

For one thing, you’re assured that, if anything goes wrong, your investment is protected, with the promise of repair or replacement. A warranty reduces the risk of buying a particular item, but more than that, the company communicates its confidence in the product, reinforcing your own confidence in the decision to buy. Think about this peace of mind and consider the real value of a builder’s warranty for a new home.


When you purchase a new home, you’re making perhaps the largest single financial investment in your life. You have the home inspected, but what if there’s an unforeseen problem? How many times have you watched a home renovation show on television where demolition uncovered a major problem with the structure of the home? When you buy a resale, do you have any guarantees that everything under your roof is safe and sound?


When you buy a new home, you receive a builder’s warranty that guarantees the quality of your home and all the systems inside of it. Your appliances are new, so they are also protected by the manufacturer’s warranty. You can move in with the knowledge that you won’t incur any expenses-whether that’s fixing a squeaky step or replacing the roof.


For more than 30 years, McGuinn Homes has been building homes throughout the Columbia, South Carolina, area. More than the design and construction of new homes, we are invested in delivering the lifestyle our homebuyers expect. We work closely to tend to every detail. When we tell a homeowner that their dream home is complete, we mean it. We handle the walk-throughs with care, and often we’re more particular than our customers. We offer a builder’s warranty that’s as comprehensive as they come. Our new home warranty coverage includes:

  • Structural
  • Electrical
  • Heating and air conditioning
  • Plumbing
  • Appliances
  • Cabinets
  • Countertops
  • Hardware
  • Floor coverings
  • Siding
  • Fireplace
  • Gutters
  • Doors and windows


If something does go wrong with your new home, you don’t have to chase down someone for the repair. Just submit your warranty request, and we’ll send the right person for the job. Then, we’ll follow up to make sure the repair meets with your approval.


McGuinn Homes is dedicated to serving our homebuyers, and that means we’re committed to integrity. We pursued and earned the title of Certified Master Builder to give our customers a different type of warranty-that their trust is well placed.
