What is a Tarion warranty on a new home?
A new build home that is registered under Tarion comes with a warranty split into three sections:
➡ 1 Year for things like material defects or missed upgrades.
➡ 2 Years for things like water penetration. Defects in work or material on windows and doors. Heating distribution, electrical and plumbing.
➡ 7 Years for major structural components of the home.
You also have a Pre-Delivery Inspection (PDI) with the builder – a few days before taking possession. ✔
During this inspection, you are testing everything you can think of.
✔ Flush the toilets.
✔ Check the light switches and fans.
✔ Inspect the trim and drywall for any popping screws.
Errors sometimes happen, and the builder will be happy to get them documented and fixed.
See the PDI checklist above!
