Hello. I purchased a new construction home back in May 07, in CT. I bought a new home thinking that I wouldn't have any or many problems. I've had some problems with a leak in the basement due to a crack in the foundation (The builder has came to fix that once but started leaking again. He'll be back to fix that when the ground thaws.He said he'd have to add dirt to grade the ground there too.) I've had a leak up in the attic due to a gap in the plywood(I have an open question about how to fix that). I've also had a leak in the bathtub which the plumber came and replaced (the gasket was bad).
Since I've had problems I'm wondering what other problems I might have with a new house so I can look for those before my warranty runs out.
