Warranty Coverage

The most important person to satisfy is you. That's why we are a Registered Builder under the Tarion Warranty Program, thus safeguarding your investment in our product.

Your Warranty Certificate was given to you at the time of your Pre-Delivery Inspection during which you listed any deficiencies in your home prior to moving in.

We make every effort to correct any noted deficiencies within the first few weeks, and will revisit you to have the form signed, which signifies your acceptance of our completions/repairs. It is in your interest to have this form fully completed since it will have to be processed through our office and sent to Tarion.

Exterior work, which requires favorable climate and site conditions, will be looked after as conditions permit.

Your home, like a new car, will go through an adjustment period. During this period, you may find other items requiring our attention, mostly due to normal shrinkage of the materials your home has been constructed with.We will accept lists of such items during the warranty period and we stress that for your protection and as a matter of record, all complaints must be made in writing.

It is only by learning of your problems at our Service Office that we can be made aware of any shortcomings in our product and thereby continue to improve. Service Request Forms can be requested through Heathwood Service Office: 416-646-7163 or by emailing service@heathwood.com. Please note that these request forms are to be completed and submitted to this office at the time intervals indicated on the form – which is on your 30-day, 6-month and 12-month anniversaries of taking possession.
