Our specially-trained new construction inspectors evaluate your home according to the Construction Performance Guidelines of the Tarion Warranty Program.

When should the inspection be completed?

We recommend that the inspection is performed within 30 days of taking possession so we can identify issues early, and have them corrected promptly. Alternatively, the inspection can be done when the house is 10 or 11 months old. The house will have settled in and lived through almost 4 seasons. Many parts of the New Home Warranty expire after 12 months, so the inspection should be done prior to the first anniversary.

Some people have the inspection performed during the Pre-Delivery Inspection (PDI). Others prefer to leave the builder and buyer alone during the PDI. The choice is yours.
