Overhead garage doors shall manually operate with relative ease without binding. An automatic garage door opener supplied and installed by the builder shall not interfere with the emergency manual operation of the door.


One-Year  Work and Materials
Damage caused by improper maintenance or additions, deletions or alterations by the homeowner is not covered by the warranty.


Garage doors not meeting the acceptable performance shall be repaired.


Proper operation of overhead garage doors should be confirmed at the walk-through and any malfunction should be noted on the Certificate of Possession Form to avoid any dispute about whether the damage was caused by the builder.
