Why Does A Home Warranty Matter?
Purchasing a new home is one of the most important and size able investments you can make. Homeowners deserve to know that their builders are being held to standards and guidelines that guarantee results you can count on for years to come. Without the proper protection, you could be left hanging in the aftermath of shoddy workmanship; something no one should ever have to worry about!
The Alberta New Home Warranty Program Vision
Since its inception in 1974, the Alberta New Home Warranty Program has been dedicated to improving home builder performance, professionalism, responsibility and accountability. Over the past 40+ years, the Program has provided warranty for more than half a million of homes, granting security to Albertan’s in the process. The Program is Alberta’s largest warranty provider, and partners with builders who meet the following guidelines (among many more):
- A solid financial foundation
- A dedication to honouring promises and commitments
- A proven track record of success
Today the Alberta New Home Warranty Program is flourishing, and always looking for new ways to protect homeowners.
Alberta introduced the New Home Buyer Protection Act (NHBPA) in 2014, designed to ensure that all home buyers receive warranty protection, clear exception and protection from unexpected issues. Under the act, all homes built after February 1, 2014 will provide “1-2-5-10” coverage.” This coverage entails: warranty coverage of one year for labour and materials, two years for delivery and distribution systems, five years for building envelope protection and ten years for major structural components. This locked in coverage means that homeowners can rest easy knowing that they are protected, and that builders are held accountable for their work.
