What's Included in Your New Home Warranty?
Do you know what’s in your new home buyer warranty?
New homes in Alberta all require a home warranty – and your home builder is responsible for ensuring that the home they build has a warranty coverage that meets all the requirements.
Understanding your home buyer warranty is a huge part of the home buying and building process, which is why it is crucial to hire a home builder who is reputable, experienced, and reliable.
What is a New Home Buyer Warranty?
A home buyer warranty is insurance protection that offers coverage for defects after building a home. The warranty stays with the house and not the owner.
A home buyer warranty typically lasts for ten years.
Alberta’s legislation requires that every new home includes warranty coverage. When choosing your home builder, be sure to ask about their warranty options.
A home warranty gives you the peace of mind you need knowing that your home has protection for any damages or defects. A home buyer warranty saves you time, stress, and money.
Remember – repair costs can add up, and a warranty provides you with the protection and peace of mind you need so that you don’t have to worry about breaking your budget if you need a repair.
What Does My Home Buyer Warranty Cover?
A new home buyer warranty covers many things, including:
- 1 Year for Materials and labour: materials and labour coverage protect against defects in materials such as flooring
- 3 Years for Delivery and distributions: defects related to distribution systems, including heating, plumbing, electrical, and more
- 5 Years for Building envelope: effects in a system that separates the interior air from the exterior air, such as a roof
- 10 Years for Structural: defects in a home’s frame or foundation
Before hiring a builder, be sure to speak with them directly about what they offer in their warranty. Find out what the policy covers, including the expiration date and conditions. It is mandatory for you builder to review the warranty with you!
