New Home Warranty

As new home builders, we want to ensure that your investment is protected 100%. During the construction of your home, we guarantee that we will meet or exceed every building standard required by the BC Building Code. When we deliver your new home, we provide  you with a comprehensive 2-5-10 warranty plan certified by Travelers Canada. This is considered the most comprehensive new home warranty available in North America and protects your investment as follows:

  • 2 years – Materials and Labour
  • 5 years – Building Envelope (water penetration)
  • 10 years – Structural Defects

What’s Included in 2-5-10 New Home Warranty Coverage?


  • Covers any defect in materials and labour or violation of the Building Code2 for 12 months for all new homes, other than the common property of a strata corporation, and 15 months for the common property of strata corporations.
  • Covers defects in materials and labour supplied for the electrical, plumbing, heating, ventilation and air conditioning delivery systems, as well as for the  exterior cladding, caulking, windows and doors, that may lead to detachment or material damage to the new home and violation of the Building Code2, for 24 months for all new homes, including the common property of strata corporations.
1 This applies to new homes built under building permits applied for on or after July 1, 1999. In areas where building permits are not required, it applies to new homes if construction began on or after July 1, 1999.
2 To be covered, a violation of the Building Code must constitute an unreasonable health or safety risk, or cause (or be likely to cause) material damage to the new home.


The building envelope includes the components that separate the indoors from the outdoors, including the exterior walls, foundation, roof, windows and doors. The minimum warranty coverage is five years for defects in the building envelope, including a defect that permits unintended water penetration such that it causes, or is likely to cause, material damage to the new home.


The minimum warranty coverage is 10 years for defects in materials and labour that result in the failure of a load-bearing part of the new home, and for any defect that causes structural damage that materially and adversely affects the use of the new home for residential occupancy.
