HOME WARRANTY BUSINESS
WBI’s core business of new home warranty insurance can be provided to both the single-family builder and the larger multifamily developer in each of the four Western Canadian Provinces BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
The home warranty is a limited policy of insurance covering defects in a new home and designed to give homeowners a peace of mind on their investment. It protects the homeowner in case certain types of defects arise after construction is complete. It is legislated in BC & Alberta and the limits of coverage differ from province to province; therefore it is important to understand what your responsibilities and obligations are as a builder and or developer.
Don’t hesitate to give us a call, our staff is here to help you every step of the way.

KEEP YOUR INVESTMENT PROTECTED
Following good maintenance practices are the best way to protect your investment. It is best to establish a routine for yourself and you will find that the work is easy to accomplish and not very time-consuming. A regular schedule of seasonal maintenance can reduce and in some cases eliminate the need for costly repairs later on.
Fall is the time to get your home ready for the coming winter, which can be the most gruelling season for your home. During the winter months it is important to check your home carefully for any problems that may arise and take corrective action as soon as possible. Spring is the time to assess for winter damage, start repairs and prepare for warmer months ahead. Over the summer there are a number of indoor and outdoor maintenance tasks to look after, such as repairing walkways and steps, painting and checking your chimney and roof.
While most maintenance is seasonal, there are some things you should do on a frequent basis year round:
If you have an issue with your home and it falls under the new home warranty coverage, your first step is to make your builder / developer aware of your concern. It is always best to communicate and cooperate with your builder as they have an obligation to fix any warrantable defects. Your policy is a limited policy and not all aspects of your home are covered under the warranty. Please be sure to read your policy wording carefully as there are certain conditions and exclusions that may apply.
If you need to submit a claim under your warranty policy, please submit a written submission including an itemized list of the issues to our office within the applicable expiry dates as noted on your policy.
