Another exclusive service from Palm Harbor Homes

After your final walk-through with your Gold Key Technician, you'll receive a commemorative "Gold Key" and "Gold Key Card." Much more than emblems of home ownership, these symbolize the Palm Harbor commitment to your complete satisfaction.

The Gold Key is a Palm Harbor Homes exclusive: one key fits both locks and deadbolts on all exterior doors, excluding sliding glass doors. It's just the kind of unique convenience you'd expect from the most respected builder of high quality manufactured homes.

The Gold Card features a toll-free number that you can call anytime for repairs covered by your 5-Year Protection Plan. This blanket protection, the most complete plan of its kind on the market today, covers everything from your home's structure, plumbing system, electrical system and air distribution systems to special features such as fireplaces, doors and windows. Our goal is to completely satisfy each customer. At Palm Harbor Homes, we take customer satisfaction personally.

Our inspection process insures your peace of mind

In our continuing commitment to absolute customer satisfaction, Palm Harbor Homes' Gold Key Care extends our Factory Quality Process directly to your home site. Palm Harbor Homes' Gold Key Care professionals will thoroughly inspect, adjust, test and completely detail your home inside and out, above and below for hassle-free home ownership. Palm Harbor Homes' technicians are trained at the factory to finish out your new home to model center standards quickly, economically...and correctly for your peace of mind!

Exterior Inspection
We closely examine your homes exterior, including the roof, chimney, flue stacks and vents. Plus, all doors and windows are inspected for proper installation, tight seal and smooth performance.

Factory Interior Close-Up and Trim Out
Utilizing factory material and factory engineered methods, Gold Key technicians complete the interior of your multi-section home at the mating line. No matter what decor you've selected, our crews have trim to match.

Interior Inspection
For multi-section homes, we assure that your home is properly sealed at the mating line from top-to-bottom and end-to-end. We'll examine all floor, ceiling, and wall surfaces for marring or damage caused by transportation or installation. If necessary, touch-up or repairs will be made adhering to factory requirements.

Electrical, Plumbing and Mechanical Systems
Each of these systems was thoroughly tested at the factory beyond federal requirements. If your utility services have been connected, we'll test them again to make certain that all factory-installed plumbing, electrical components, fixtures and appliances are operating properly for additional peace of mind.

Interior & Exterior Doors
We adjust all the doors in your new home so that they close easily and latch tightly for efficiency, privacy and security.

There's More!
We know a beautiful gourmet kitchen requires lots of easy opening cabinets and smooth operating drawers and we make certain this demand is met. We make any adjustments necessary in kitchens, baths, utility rooms and other rooms with cabinetry. We also check all counter tops for proper fit and caulking.

Final Detailing
Because we pay close attention to detail, you can be assured that tubs and showers are clean and enclosures properly adjusted, appliance shipping straps are removed, all screens are in place, lighting fixtures are properly installed. We'll remove all debris, clean all counter tops, and sweep the floor.

Your Walk-Through
You can join our Gold Key Technician for a complete walk-through, inside and out, answering your questions and explaining all that was accomplished. He or she will then review your Home Care and Maintenance Guide with you and explain your New Home Warranty.
