New Home Warranty

The New Home Buyer Protection Act: Ensuring Quality Homes in Alberta

Since February 1, 2014, all newly constructed homes in Alberta are safeguarded under warranty. This protection covers various types of homes such as single detached family homes, duplexes, multi-family homes, condominiums, manufactured homes, and recreational properties. Here are some key aspects of the warranty:

  • 1-year coverage for labour and materials

  • 2-year coverage for labour and materials related to delivery and distribution systems

  • 5-year coverage for building envelope protection, with the option for the consumer to purchase additional years of coverage

  • 10-year coverage for major structural components
