Warranty & Coverage


What exactly is Home Warranty Insurance?

The quick answer is that it protects new homes in British Columbia against construction defects such as materials and labor, building envelope and structural defects. At WBI, we provide New Home Warranty Coverage for builders and homeowners in BC and Western Canada.

We understand what it takes to get a deal done and our flexibility is unique in the home warranty business and we know that time is money.

A few reasons why developers, large and small, are doing business with WBI:

  • Our 2/5/10 new home warranty is underwritten by Royal and Sun Alliance Insurance Company of Canada. (RSA)
  • Developer Deposit Insurance – up to 50 million single project capacity underwritten by GCNA
  • Purchaser Home Bond – we assist in presales by having the purchaser use less of their money to satisfy the deposit requirements. (RSA)
  • Course of Construction Insurance and Wrap Up Insurance through Wilson M. Beck Insurance (our parent company).

Our mandate is to simplify the process and make the experience easy and pleasurable for our clients and their homeowners at all times.
