Warranty and Service

(MN Statute 327a)

All Michael Lee Homes homes are covered under out 1-2-10 new home warranty which includes: a one-year craftsmanship warranty, a two-year mechanical warranty, and a ten-year structural warranty.

In Case of Emergency: All emergency numbers are listed on the major mechanical appliances in the mechanical room. Our mechanical partners have emergency contact lines to help you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Although we use the best materials and follow industry leading installations, many of these products are “maintenance free”, however, the home itself is NOT. Every home requires normal upkeep and maintenance as a homeowner.

Note: Improper maintenance or operation or any damage caused by the homeowner or made worse by negligence is excluded from warranty.

Craftsmanship Warranty


One-year warranty covers Craftsmanship. This includes materials, workmanship, and craftsmanship defects.  These items are covered and be in compliance with building standards and minimum performance standards as outlined by the Builders Association of the Twin Cities (BATC).

Example: Drywall cracks and screw “nail” pops. This is the most common item that needs addressing at the one year and is expected. Due to season changes in our climate your home will go through different humidity changes in its first year and these will occur.

Structural Warranty


Ten-year warranty covers structural. This is defined as MAJOR CONSTRUCTION DEFECTS means damage to the “load-bearing” function of the home which the home becomes unsafe, unsanitary, or otherwise unlivable.

Load-bearing components may include but are not exclusive to: footings and foundations, beams, girders, lintels, load bearing walls and partitions, floor systems, and roof trusses.
