Homeowner Protection Office
Your home has been built in accordance with, and to the standards prescribed by the BC Building Code and municipal authorities, the stringent requirements of the Homeowner Protection Office (“HPO”), and our warranty provider.
The Mosaic New Home Warranty covers the first 10-years of your Mosaic home ownership and is commonly referred to as a “2-5-10 year warranty.”
The first year of your warranty covers all items related to the materials and workmanship of your home, from drywall to appliances. Any defects to the materials and workmanship supplied for distribution systems such as plumbing, electrical wiring, heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) are also covered for the first 2-years.
Your home’s building envelope is covered for defects for up to five years. The envelope defects covered include those which permit unintended water penetration that could, or do, cause material damage to the home.
Structural defects warranty covers any defect in materials and labour that results in the failure of a load bearing part of the home, and any defect which causes structural damage that materially and adversely affects the use of the home for residential occupancy. This warranty is good for 10-years.
