Lifetime Warranty

Once unwrapped, your new home is backed by Bolster’s Lifetime of Ownership Workmanship Warranty TM (another industry-first) which ensures your home meets our Quality Standards for as long as you live in your new home.

FREE *     Appliance Package     Lifetime Warranty

Traditional builders offer workanship warranties for limited periods of time (most commonly 12 Months) and often end up charging for call-backs.

Bolster's transparent model and highly-trained workforce delivers the highest quality of workmanship in accordance with our documented Quality Standards. Offering you a lifetime workmanship warranty, free of charge, for the duration of your life in the property is a natural extension of this.
