Your Andrin Warranty Coverage, backed by the TARION Warranty Corporation is divided into three coverage periods as outlined below:
One-Year: coverage ensures that your home is constructed in a workmanlike manner and free from defects in material, fit for habitation, constructed in accordance with the Ontario Building Code and free of major structural defects.
Two-Year: coverage includes water penetration through the basement or foundation walls, defects in materials, including windows, doors and caulking, or defects in work that result in water penetration into the building envelope, defects in work or materials in the electrical, plumbing and heating delivery and distribution systems, defects in work or materials which result in the detachment, displacement or deterioration of exterior cladding (such as brickwork, aluminium or vinyl siding), violations of the Ontario Building Code affecting health and safety (including, but not limited to, violations relating to fire safety and the structural adequacy of the home) and major structural defects. (Major structural defects are specifically defined in the Ontario New Home Warranties Plan Act and discussed in more detail in the Seven-Year Warranty section.)
Seven-Year: During the first two years of possession of your home, the seven year Major Structural Defects (MSD) warranty is provided by Andrin Homes. After that, during years three through seven, the warranty is provided directly by TARION. A major structural defect is defined in The Ontario New Home Warranties Plan Act as any defect in work or materials that results in the failure of a load-bearing part of the home’s structure or materially and adversely affects its load-bearing function, or any defect in work or materials that materially and adversely affects the use of the building as a home. The seven-year MSD warranty includes significant damage due to soil movement, major cracks in basement walls, collapse or serious distortion of joints or roof structure and chemical failure of materials
