Tarion New Home Warranty Inspections

 The statuary 30-day, 1- year and 2 year inspections

These inspections are very important as you will only have one chance to submit them (30 day and 1 yr).

The timing of these inspections is also very important as a late report could mean that instead of the builder fixing the issue you could end up having to pay for it yourself. Also, certain issues only have a limited time to be found and can not be carried over into the next statuary period if not found on the one prior.

During a Stone Home warranty inspection the inspector will determine whether the home and its systems are constructed and operating in a way that is consistent with the Tarion Construction Performance Guidelines. This will allow you to make a claim to the builder or through Tarion if any issues are covered.
 

PDI Inspection

 This inspection is done with the builder. A review of all of the systems of the home is done to insure that they are working and that the home is free from defects in work and materials. You can bring the inspector along with you, or if you can not attend, then the inspector may take your place.
 
The 30- Day warranty Inspection

This inspection is vital to protecting your home warranty. It can be done anytime after the date of possession but only once and before the 30th day. This inspection looks at any issues that arise while living in the home, as well as the home performance. It is also the time to report items from the PDI that have not been taken care of by the builder.

 
 The One-Year Warranty Inspection

This inspection is done during the last 30 days of the first year after the date of possession. The inspection will include a check of all of the systems of the home to insure that they are operating properly, and that there are no defects in the work and materials. This inspection is very important because if issues are not detected at this time, then they may not be covered under the second year's warranty if they have not been reported before the end of the first.

Other items that are covered but not exclusive to the one year warranty are:

- Water penetration through the basement of foundation walls;

- Defects in the materials or work (including windows, doors and caulking) that result in water
    penetration into the building envelope

- Defects in materials and work in the electrical, plumbing and heating delivery and distribution systems:

- Defects in materials and work which result in detachment, displacement or deterioration of exterior
   cladding (such as brickwork, aluminum or vinyl siding);
 
- Violations of Ontario Building Code regulations under which the Building permit was issued, affecting
   health and safety
 
-Major structural defects
 

The Two-Year Warranty Inspection

This inspection can take place any time after the first year of possession until the second year ends. This inspection includes a check of all of the systems of the home to insure that the home is free from:

- Water penetration through the basement of foundation walls;

- Defects in the materials or work (including windows, doors and caulking) that result in water
   penetration into the building envelope

- Defects in materials and work in the electrical, plumbing and heating delivery and distribution systems:

- Defects in materials and work which result in detachment, displacement or deterioration of exterior
   cladding (such as brickwork, aluminum or vinyl siding);
