From the roof and the walls right down to the smaller details like sealants and flashing; these building installations and components are vital, and they have to work right.
National Home Warranty offers 5 and 10 year Building Envelope Remediation programs. And as an added-value, the Maintenance Operations Program (MOP) has designed a program to compliment the Building Envelope Remediation Warranty.
Building Envelope Renovations in British Columbia are protected by 2-5 warranty insurance as set out by the Homeowner Protection Act Renovation Regulation. Mandatory warranty insurance includes the following minimum standards of coverage:
2 years’ coverage on labour and materials as follows:
- 24 months’ for any defect in materials and labour and for non-compliance with the building code*.
5 and optional 10 years’ coverage on building envelope as follows:
- 5 and optional 10 years’ coverage for defects in the building envelope renovation, including a defect which permits unintended water penetration that causes, or is likely to cause material damage to the residential building.
*Non compliance with the building code is considered a defect if the non-compliance constitutes an unreasonable health or safety risk, or has resulted in, or is likely to result in, material damage to the residential building
The MOP has two main components:
Maintenance Manual: This is the foundation of the MOP. It’s a concise and comprehensive collection of documentation that defines and schedules specific maintenance requirements.
It helps to ensure that proper maintenance of the building is planned for, and that an adequate reserve fund is maintained for future replacements and refurbishments.
You will will benefit from this easy-to-use reference package. It includes:
- Contingency Reserves Fund Plans
- Depreciation Reports
- Envelope Materials Information
- Warranty Documents
- Contacts Lists, and
- Maintenance Scheduling Information
Annual Reviews: We’ll be there throughout the duration of your program to ensure that defects in the envelope are brought to your attention before they grow into costly repairs.
