New Home Construction (Tarion Warranty)
We also provide Pre-Delivery Inspections, 30 Day Inspections
and Year End Inspections for all new home construction and
your Tarion warranty requirements. The builder is required
to perform the Pre-Delivery Inspection and fill out the forms
with you. After that the home owner is on their own with
both, the 30 Day and Year End forms.
YOU have the right to have the builder repair all
outstanding and/or new defective items. To do so you will
have to submit 30 Day and Year End forms. Please note
all forms are required to be submitted on time or you risk
voiding the Tarion New Home Warranty.

PDI - Pre-Delivery Inspection (For new home buyers)
Most new home buyers don’t know or understand what they can have the builder correct or have Tarion (New Home Warranty Program) enforce the builder to correct. Unsure of what to look for during your Pre-Delivery Inspection? We are available to assist new home buyers through the Pre-Delivery Inspection (PDI). Tarion guidelines state: “During the PDI, you and/or an individual you select to attend (your designate) will be given the opportunity to examine the interior and exterior of the home with your builder or your builder’s representative”.
The Pre-Delivery Inspection documents visible defects and incomplete items. We also ensure that upgrades and builder’s features have been included.
