Currituck Homes’s Home Warranty Program

Currituck Homes is proud to partner with Residential Warranty Company, LLC., one of the nation’s oldest and largest providers of written insured new home warranties.

We now offer a Customized North Carolina State Warranty on each of new homes, and RWC also allows Currituck Homes to offer written insured remodeling warranties on any remodeling project that we complete.

Who is RWC?

Residential Warranty Company, LLC is one of the nation’s oldest and largest providers of written insured new home warranties, providing homeowners with a strong foundation of security for their home.

What does Currituck Homes’s Membership with RWC mean to you?

RWC does not have an open door policy when it comes to Membership. Not every Builder is able to attain Membership with them the way Currituck Homes has done.

Potential Members are examined for financial stability, customer satisfaction, and technical competence.

As an RWC Member, we agree to comply with specific construction standards in order to have our home warranted by them.

This is our assurance to you that Currituck Homes is committed to standing behind our homes and providing you with peace of mind long after the sale.

What’s Covered in an RWC Warranty offered by Currituck Homes?

The RWC Customized State Warranty on your home identifies what is warranted, what is excluded and the duration of the Warranty.

In the first year, the Warranty generally applies to workmanship, materials, and portions of major systems (wiring, ductwork, pipes).

For the length of the warranty, it includes protection on warranted structural elements in your home, as defined in your warranty book. The Warranty identifies which parts of a home are warranted, and the criteria for establishing structural defect.

Your Warranty book spells out who is responsible for warranted repairs, defines basic terms that are important for you to know, and describes the process you will use if you think you have a warranted problem in your home.

Note that the Warranty is “limited” which means you are responsible for maintaining your home, for changing light bulbs to maintaining proper drainage patterns. Areas which are not part of the primary residence, such as driveways, are excluded from your Warranty. It’s also important to note that some of the products that are installed in your new home might have a manufacturer’s warranty.

What’s the Value of an RWC Warranty to you, the Homeowner?

Resale Value

Your home is warranted for the length of time as shown on the cover of your warranty book. If you sell your home during that term, the balance of the warranty transfers automatically to the next buyer. That transferable home warranty is an excellent marketing tool when you offer your home for sale to prospective buyers.


When Currituck Homes chose RWC as our warranty provider, we made the decision to provide you with a written and insured commitment that your home will be free from specified defects. Your RWC warranty is independently written and administered and remains in place for six years, regardless of what the future holds.

Expert Second Opinion

Even with a written warranty, misunderstandings may arise. If you disagree with us on whether or not something should be considered a defect, the limited warranty can be a valuable “measuring stick” for evaluating the issues. You benefit from third-party assistance with home warranty issues. The warranty standards included are based on accepted industry practices. The process to get RWC involved to mediate the issue and determine coverage is spelled out in your warranty book.
