If you’ve recently bought a new home in Ontario from a builder, this home will include a 7-year warranty.

This warranty includes the major systems of your home such as:

Interior, Roofing, Exterior, Plumbing, HVAC systems, Electrical, Insulation/Ventilation for 2 years

Your home’s structure including;Frame and foundation which is covered for 7 years

For Graph: Average deficiencies, Power Home Inspection does not guarantee a set amount of mistakes found.

During this time you should submit 3 forms to your warranty company.

30 Day Inspection, Year-end Inspection and 2 Year Inspection

These warranty forms outline the warranty items required to be fixed by the builder.

 

Notched structural “I-Joist”

 

 The best way to find deficiencies in your home is by hiring a Certified Home Inspector to go through the home and find issues that you as a homeowner may not know should be resolved by your builder.

At Power Home Inspection we provide such a service. These inspections are more in-depth than a regular pre-purchase inspection you may have had when purchasing an older home.

We provide a digital copy of our report to submit online directly to your Warranty provider

Why hire us?

We have over 2500 regular inspections performed as well as hundreds of New Home Inspections. We take our time (often 4-6 hours) to fully go through your home and find as many warranty applicable issues as we can.

We make it easy to file your reports online, after your inspection, we will send you a digital file of everything found on your property. This eliminates the need for sitting and inputting deficiencies into the warranty providers website, which takes several hours.

PDI

Pre-Delivery Inspections are inspections usually performed by the builder and future homeowner to go through the home prior to closing. The main purpose of the inspection is to note any damaged, unsafe and/or unfinished areas/items. We generally recommend against hiring us for a PDI inspection strictly based on time restraints and the fact that PDI forms are NOT requests for warranty. All requests for warranty should be listed on the 30-day inspection form.
