1-2-5-10 Year Home Warranty Inspection

An owner should always confirm that the building components are performing as required by using a home inspector at the above milestone dates. The inspection report will document any deficiencies in a “punch list” of items needing attention under the warranty.  It is important that this inspection be done at least six weeks before the anniversary date, in order that notification is received prior to the expiry. Home builders in BC provide new home warranties  with:

  • 1 year on labour and material defects
  • 2 years on mechanical and electrical systems
  • 5 years on the building envelope
  • 10 years on the structure
