The Basics of the Alberta New Home Warranty Program

The Basics of the Alberta New Home Warranty Program

The Alberta New Home Warranty Program is Alberta’s most experienced, most trusted new home warranty provider. No matter how thorough your builder is, there may be unforeseen issues that come up, but with the new home warranty program, you can rest easy knowing you’re covered.

The Alberta New Home Warranty Program has four tiers of mandatory protection; 1-2-5-10 year coverages. Let’s take a look at what they are below.

1 Year Labour & Materials

Mandatory warranty includes one-year coverage for defects in materials and labour. This includes issues with the way your home was built or the materials it was built with, such as flooring, trim, and fixtures.

2 Year Distribution Systems

The new home warranty will cover defects in labour and materials related to heating, electrical and plumbing systems for two years from the warranty start date.

5 Year Building Envelope

For the first five years of the plan, you are protected against things that occur in the “building envelope.” This includes things like roofing, exterior walls and windows. Even with our harsh Edmonton winters, you can rest assured that your roof will be covered, should anything happen.

10 Year Structural Integrity

This ten year coverage is for the key structural components such as the frame and foundation. Coverage applies to defects in material and labour or structural damage that adversely affects the owners’ ability to live in the home.

Choosing a Builder

Working with a quality Edmonton builder [ ] is one of the best ways to prevent issues in your home. The Alberta New Home Warranty Program has approximately 700 Builder Members. If you choose a builder that is a member of the Alberta New Home Warranty Program, you will have the protection outlined above.

Building a home is an exciting process for many people. Knowing that you’re covered by the Alberta New Home Warranty Program when you build a home with a quality builder is peace of mind that you just can’t get with resale homes.
