Tarion Warranty Inspections:   PDI: $350      Tarion: $400     Tarion + Home Inspection: $450

   Rival Home Inspections will do a complete inspection on your new home looking for defects in construction and safety hazards. In the first year of your new home warranty the builder is to repair all deficiencies at their expense so this is the best time to get things fixed right and save money in the future. These inspections are generally done just in sync with the Tarion 30-Day, First Year and Second Year statutory claim periods (first 30 days after possession or final 30 days of the first year and second year possession).

    Investing in the construction of a new home can be both exciting and frustrating. While we recognize your builder is an expert, nearly every new home has some type of safety or building defect. Some deficiencies are as simple as a sticking door or a missing access cover. But a missing handrail on stairs could be a major life safety hazard. 

    A Rival Tarion New Home Inspection will find these defects during warranty period so that they can be fixed before the builder signs off on a finished job. Then you will get the gorgeous home you paid for, with the knowledge it is safe and sound.

"Thanks for doing the inspection. The buyers love the property and felt really educated on the long term plan you outlined. Thanks again for another job well done!"
