The Kerr Warranty

The Kerr Warranty

Ours Is the Industry's Best for Homeowners' Peace of Mind

3 Year Material and Labour Warranty

We warranty against all defects in workmaship and materials.

3 Year Mechanical Systems Warranty

This covers any defect in materials and labour supplied for the gas, electrical, plumbing, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning delivery systems, as well as exterior cladding, caulking, windows and doors.

6 Year Building Envelope Warranty

Kerr Construction Inc. warranty includes coverage against water penetration for 6 years.

12 Year Structural Defect Warranty

Kerr Construction Inc. will cover any defect in materials and labour that result in a failure of load bearing components of the home or the structural damage that might result from such a failure.


In general terms, our warranty covers defects. Defects are defined as any damage that requires repair or replacement due to negligence by Kerr Construction Inc. and their associates. For instance, this would include work performed by the Trades under a Kerr Construction Inc. Supervisor and would not cover defects in materials or labour supplied by the owner.

On new construction, the home will be covered by the legislated “Home Warranty Insurance Program” as well as the Kerr Construction Inc. 3/6/12 Warranty.

On new construction, where another builder has started the project which was later taken over by Kerr Construction Inc., the whole project will be covered by the New Home Warranty 2/5/10. Only the work that we performed will be covered by the Kerr Construction Inc. 3/6/12 Warranty.

On renovations, the Kerr Construction Inc. 3/6/12 Warranty will only apply to the work that Kerr Construction Inc. performed on the home. It does not apply to the rest of the building or work done by others that is not part of our contract.

In addition, weathering, normal wear and tear, normal shrinkage of materials such as concrete and wood, material design or labour provided directly by the owner, damage caused by animals or insects, fire, windstorm or other acts of nature, are also not covered under warranty.

Manufacturers’ specifications or instructions should be followed when materials are supplied or installed in the home and would be used to determine the acceptable performance/condition for warranty coverage. However, it’s important to note that manufacturers’ specifications or instructions are not always available, may not be relevant to local conditions and building practices and do not cover all installation situations. In these cases, normal, local industry standards would determine the acceptable performance/condition for warranty coverage.

Damage resulting from work performed by the owner or under the owner’s direction after occupancy, such as renovations, alterations, deletions or

additions, is not covered under warranty.


Commencement Date of Kerr Construction Inc. Warranty is the earliest of either the actual occupancy of the new home or area renovated, the

granting of an occupancy permit, or substantial performance of the project. Substantial Performance is defined as being used or able to be used for its intended purpose. Substantial performance does not mean all completion list or deficiency list items are completed.
