New Home Warranty Inspections

The Tarion/Ontario New Home Warranty Program has four distinct intervals, 30 days, one year, two years, and seven years. Building Insights Inc. offers inspection services at each one of these intervals. These interval inspection services are concentrated on identifying problems or deficiencies of a warrantable nature. Any potential defects or problems then become the responsibility of the builder or subsequently the warranty provider TARION

The most common type of new home warranty inspections are performed prior to the submission of your thirty-day form and in the eleventh month, prior to the submission of your one year form. Most builders will resolve any issues on a one-to-one basis, however, filling out the appropriate Tarion paperwork is prudent to avoid potential disputes. Tarion is very strict on the submission deadlines.

This old abandoned boiler was in the basement of a home where the children had been carving their names into the asbestos parging and unknowingly breathing in the hazardous fibers.

This deteriorated brick chimney will be an expensive repair and could only be observed by climbing the roof.

This plastic vent is discharging the moist air from the bathroom into the attic space where it can form condensation and cause damage. All fans are required to vent to the exterior. There is also some dangerous wiring evident at the bottom of the picture.

The electrical installation in this two year old pool house looks like a neat professional installation at first glance. However a closer look reveals that there is no ground fault protection for the lights and outlets near the pool. This is considered a shock hazard and a high priority repair.

This home was getting free natural gas for the BBQ. The quick connect fitting is located on the wrong side of the gas meter. I don't think the Gas company would have been too pleased.
