All about our Warranty Program

Saskatchewan New Home Warranty Program

All homes built by Homes by JMS are registered with the Saskatchewan New Home Warranty Program.  This warranty program is put in place to ensure you that we are building with the highest standards and will provide warranty to the home should something become an issue.

Below is an outline of what is covered:

1) DEPOSIT PROTECTION

 For all houses registered after January 1st, 2016, the initial deposit for the purchase of your new home is protected up to a maximum of $50,000 in the event the deposit becomes legally refundable and cannot be recovered because of bankruptcy, default, insolvency or fraud on the part of the builder. It does not cover reimbursement because of a contract dispute between the parties.

 

2) WORKMANSHIP AND MATERIALS PROTECTION- ONE YEAR*

 All Registered Builders are required to warrant that the house is constructed in accordance with the building standards prescribed by the Province of Saskatchewan and the New Home Warranty "Construction Performance Standards" that the house is free from defects in workmanship and materials for a period of one year from the date of possession.

 

3) WATER LEAKS PROTECTION - TWO YEARS*

 Registered Builders warrant that the building envelope (roof, exterior cladding, windows and doors) and the basement foundation walls will be free of exterior water penetration for two years from original occupancy.

 

4) MAJOR STRUCTURAL DEFECTS PROTECTION - FIVE YEARS*

 All Registered builders warrant that your home will be protected against Major Structural Defects for five years from the date of possession. Major Structural Defects mean defects in workmanship or material which have or are likely to have an adverse effect on the performance of the load bearing portion of the home such as footings, piles, basement walls, beams, floor joists, teleposts, load bearing walls, and roof trusses.

 

5) OPTIONAL EXTENDED WARRANTY- MAJOR STRUCTURAL DEFECTS

 An optional 5-year Extended Major Structural Defect Warranty is available for eligible single family houses. This would protect your home against major structural defects from the sixth year to the tenth year. The maximum protection would be $75,000 for all houses registered on or after January 1st, 2008 and $100,000 on all houses enrolled on or after January 1, 2014. (Note: Extended warranty coverage is not available on condominium units).
