Obtaining Warranty Service

POST-SETTLEMENT SERVICE

It is Bob Ward Companies’ policy to consistently provide courteous and effective warranty service during the term of the warranty on a timely basis (weather and labor conditions permitting) for all warrantable (non-maintenance) items as defined by the provisions of the Quality Builders Warranty (QBW) Limited Warranty Agreement that you received prior to settling on your home.

In order to identify any non-maintenance warranty items, we offer both a 90-Day and 11-Month Review Inspection of your home. You can expect a Warranty Service representative to contact you at approximately 60 days after Settlement for the scheduling of the 90-Day Review Inspection, and then at approximately 10 months for the scheduling of the 11-Month Review Inspection.

Our Warranty Service Department is open Monday-Friday from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Inspections are typically scheduled to begin at 8:00-8:30 AM with the last appointment of the day scheduled for 1:30-2:00 PM.

URGENT AND/OR EMERGENCY ITEMS

If you experience a service issue that requires immediate assistance (a problem that affects the safety or function of your home),
please notify us via this link or you may contact the Warranty Service Department at (410) 679-5000 ext. 1031. We ask that you please refrain from directly contacting the Construction Supervisor or Sales Manager for service-related items. For your protection, please visit our website in order to report the issue you are having with your home. Our employees in the field do not have the ability to document service issues.

Should you experience an emergency outside normal business hours, refer to your Contact List and contact the appropriate vendor directly. Please then notify us of the issue via the above link.
