Atlantic Home Warranty introduces a Renovation Warranty for its Member Builders

There are two types of warranty available
 Non-Structural
 Structural

Non-Structural Renovation Warranty

The Non-Structural warranty covers renovations without a structural component. This is a two year warranty and covers the renovation as set out in the scope of renovation that the builder submits.

 As with our new home warranty, the first year is considered the Builder’s Warranty.  During this 12 month period, AHW will support the process with Conciliation Services should the need for an independent review of issues with the renovation be required. The Conciliation Service is included in the fee and all parties receive a written decision based upon the Program’s findings upon inspection. Decisions will be based upon the AHW Construction Performance Guidelines.

 Year 2 of the warranty covers defects arising from improper workmanship/labour. At eleven months, AHW will provide a complimentary inspection of the renovation to activate year 2 coverage. Defects arising in the second year will be covered by AHW.

 Coverage is as outlined in our wording. Please review these carefully. Amounts of coverage are in the aggregate $30,000 for all losses that occur over this 2 year period. For water penetration arising from improper workmanship/labour, $10,000 is the maximum payable by AHW. This sublimit of $10,000 forms part of the $30,000 limit and is not to be considered in addition to the aggregate limit.

 Structural Renovation Warranty

The structural warranty covers renovations that have a structural component. This is a five year warranty and covers the renovation as set out in the Scope of Renovation that the builder submits.

 As with our new home warranty, the first year is considered the Builder’s Warranty.  During this 12 month period, AHW will support the process with Conciliation Services should the need for an independent review of issues with the renovation be required. The Conciliation Service is included in the fee and all parties receive a written decision based upon the Program’s findings upon inspection. Decisions will be based upon the AHW Construction Performance Guidelines.

 In years 2 to 5 the warranty is limited to major structural defects. 

 Coverage is as outlined in our wording. Please review these carefully. Amounts of coverage are in the aggregate $30,000 for all losses that occur over this 5 year period. For water penetration arising from improper workmanship/labour, $10,000 is the maximum payable by AHW. This sublimit of $10,000 forms part of the $30,000 limit and is not to be considered in addition to the aggregate limit.
