Warranties from GC after completion
We hired a general contractor to do a small room addition and deck, along with kitchen gut and remodel and it's just about done--waiting for final inspection from the city. We asked the contractor for the warranties on items such as kitchen cabinets, bamboo flooring, siding, decking, etc. He gave us a copy of each warranty (I think printed from each manufacturer's website), but nothing specific to us, such as warranty registration information. Don't we need some sort of date of purchase documentation that shows these warranties are in our name or something more official? Or is our original contract with him that specifies the products to be used enough?
I'm concerned that if we ever need to rely on these warranties, we'll be told by the companies that they have no record of us purchasing their product.
