WHY BRIGHTON DISCLAIMER
8 QUALITY INSPECTIONS
We love to rise to a challenge and with eight independent quality inspections, we ensure that every home we build is of the highest level of quality. We start with (1) an inspection of the slab by our engineer and (2) inspection of the termite penetration and perimeter barrier by our accredited termite contractor. The (3) frame is then approved by a building certifier or engineer, followed by (4) a pre-lining walk through where the customer is invited to inspect and then again, (5) at pre-tiling inspection, along with the Site Manager. Finally, (6) council conduct a plumbing inspection and our (7) Construction Manager completes a quality control inspection, finishing with one last (8) independent inspection by handovers.com. These 8 inspections at key mile stones ensures you peace of mind knowing your home is of the highest quality. Applicable on all deposits after 21st October 2018.
24 MONTH WARRANTY PERIOD
With inspections at 3, 12 and 24 months, our warranty period is double the industry’s 12 month standard, ensuring you greater peace of mind. Due to building movement, settlement, normal wear and tear, or failure to maintain, newly completed homes can have minor defect items (non-structural) which is completely normal. That’s why Brighton offer 3 inspections after you have been handed the keys to your new home. The first at 3 months and then again at 12 months – and this is where the industry standard ends – but here at Brighton we allow your home to go through the 4 seasons TWICE and offer a 24 month warranty inspection. This warranty requires Brighton to rectify and/or reinstate any minor non-structural defect items which may have been caused by building movement or settling, and includes any warranty given by product manufacturers. Applicable on all deposits after 21st October 2018.
60 YEAR STRUCTURAL GUARANTEE
We take the time and make the effort to create a beautiful home for you that is built to last and last and last, and we guarantee it structurally for 60 years. This means that the foundation systems, concrete or strip footings, load bearing brick work, structural timbers and steel in wall or roof framing are all covered for 60 years on any Brighton Home deposit after 21st October 2018. This structural guarantee is specific to the initial purchaser and not transferable to future owners of the home.
This guarantee does not include the following:
Defects arising from failure to maintain the home in accordance to the CSIRO’s Guide to Foundation Maintenance and Footing Performance (refer to Brighton Homes Construction Handover Pack).
Damage caused by natural environmental factors – storms, fire, rain/flood, earthquake and strong wind.
Damage caused by tree roots or planting near the perimeter footings, poor surface drainage and leaking plumbing (drains and stormwater) in and around the home. For further information on how to prevent this type of defect, please refer to CSIRO’s Guide to Foundation Maintenance and Footings Performance.
Everyday wear and tear including minor cracking due to climate conditions after your initial 24 month warranty period, is not covered by this warranty.
Regular 12-month termite inspections. This is the owner’s responsibility to continue the Termite Protection Maintenance Program. Failure to do so will result in void of Termite Warranty and any subsequent damage to structural membrane.
Structural alterations, renovations or additions to the property including major landscaping or construction of a pool after handover.
For the avoidance of doubt this structural guarantee does not cover items of a non-structural nature such as marks, scratches, chips to cupboards, doors, benchtops, basins, baths, showers, appliances, floor and wall tiles, etc.
All Brighton customers are responsible to maintain their home in accordance with the Brighton Construction Handover Pack provided at handover. Failure to meet such requirement, will void your 60 year Structural Guarantee.
