cracks and nail pops on a one-time basis. If an area needs to be touched up, it will not match the existing paint exactly. Repainting the entire wall or the entire room to correct this is your choice and responsibility. You are also responsible for custom paint colors or wallpaper that has been applied subsequent to closing. Due to the effects of time on paint and wallpaper, as well as possible dye lot variations, touch-ups are unlikely to match the surrounding area. Lighting Conditions Century Communities does not repair drywall flaws that are only visible under particular lighting conditions. For example, if you can only see a condition during the nighttime hours when different lighting is used, it would not be considered a defect. Shrinkage cracks and nail pops visible from a distance of six feet under normal light will be repaired. Nail pops that have cracked the surface or exposed nail heads are not acceptable and will be repaired. Related Warranty Repairs If a drywall repair is needed as a result of an issue such as a plumbing leak or other warranty repair, Century Communities completes the repair by touching up the repaired area with the same paint that was on the surface when the home was delivered. If more than one-third of the wall is involved, we will repaint the wall corner to corner. You are responsible for custom paint colors or wallpaper that has been applied subsequent to closing. The effects of time on paint and wallpaper, as well as possible dye lot variations mean touch-up may not match the surrounding area. Homeowner Use and Care Guidelines Easements are areas where such things as utility supply lines can pass through your property. They permit service to your lot and adjacent lots, now and in the future. Your lot may also include drainage easements, meaning the runoff from adjacent lots passes across your property. Likewise, water from your property may run across a neighboring lot. Easements are recorded and are typically permanent. Trees, shrubs, gardens, play equipment, storage sheds, fences or other items which you install in or across these easements may be disturbed if service entities — such as the gas, electric or phone companies — typically need access to lines for repairs or to connect service to nearby home sites. Utility companies, the United States Postal Service, and others have the right to install equipment in easements. These might include streetlights, mailboxes or junction boxes, to name a few. Neither Century Communities nor you as the homeowner have the authority to prevent, interfere with, or alter these installations. Plans for the location of such items are subject to change by the various entities involved. Because they have no obligation to keep Century Communities informed of such changes, we are unable to predict specific sites that will include such equipment. EASEMENTS
