Bathtub or shower leaks

Acceptable Performance/Condition

Bathtubs and showers shall be installed in accordance with manufacturer's specifications so they do not leak.


One-Year  Work and Materials
Damage resulting from improper maintenance or additions, deletions or alterations made by the homeowner is excluded from the warranty.   Secondary damage caused by defects, such as damage to personal property or personal injury, is excluded from the warranty.


Bathtubs or showers not meeting the acceptable performance shall be repaired.


Caulking and seals around bathtubs and shower enclosures and entry door seals require regular homeowner inspection and maintenance to prevent leaks.  If a leak is detected in a water supply pipe, the main water supply valve should be turned off immediately until the builder's representative can assess the condition.
