Summary: we’re reasonable people – if something is out of place that obviously shouldn’t be, we’ll fix it.

We put extra effort in to avoid home defects from the start. You can find a list of common deficiencies that we cover here.

  • First 12 months – coverage for any defect in materials and labour

  • First 15 months – coverage for any defect in material and labour in the common property of a multi-unit building.

  • First 24 months – coverage for any defect in materials and labour supplied for the electrical, plumbing, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning delivery and distribution systems. In addition, coverage for any defect in material and labour supplied for the exterior cladding, caulking, windows and doors that may lead to detachment or material damage to the new home.

  • 5 Year Building Envelope Warranty
