7. General: Chips, scratches and mars on any surface such as countertops, cabinets, woodwork, walls, tile, fixtures, carpeting, etc., not recognized at the time of final inspection are not warrantable.

9 Sodding and seeding: Sodded and seeded areas become the responsibility of the homeowner from the time of certificate of occupancy or occupancy, whichever comes first. Whether or not sod roots and grows depends on the care given.
10. Asphalt Shingle Roofs: Solid-colored roofs may show some variation in shade of certain angles of reflection. This is caused by the varying absorption and reflection of light from the granules that make up the surface of the shingle.
