  • For Efficient After-Sales Service

    Solmar knows that making sure your new home is beautiful and well cared for is important to you. It is important to us too! To help us provide you with the most efficient after-sales service, please follow the steps outlined below.

    Step 1: Pre-Delivery Inspection

    Prior to occupying your home, you will be asked to meet with a Solmar representative for a pre-delivery inspection (PDI).  This appointment is done during regular business hours so you will be required to take time off work.  Our appointments are from 8am – 4pm.  Our last booking is at 4pm.  We give approx. 2 hours for each PDI, although there is no rush if you require more time going over items your Solmar representative will accommodate this.  During your PDI your Solmar representative will list all deficiencies in the home, if any.  You will also be shown how things work in your unit, discuss warranty, maintenance and what you should expect from your home over time.  At the end of your inspection you will be given a copy of your PDI form and a copy of your Warranty Certificate which should be shown to your lawyer for closing purposes.  Barring unforeseen circumstances, any items you list on the PDI form will be repaired within 30 days.

    Step 2: 30-Day Form

    After you have owned your home for 30 days, you should fill in another form — referred to as the 30-day form. This is your second opportunity to list any problems you may discover with your home. Remember, nicks, chips, bumps and scratches that were not listed on your PDI will not be covered. However, you may discover some doors need adjusting for proper closure. Any plumbing, electrical or roofing issues you have can also be listed at this time.

    Step 3: One-Year Mark

    As the one-year anniversary of you owning your home approaches, you have the opportunity to send in another form. Your year-end form should cite all shrinkage items such as nail pops, corner bead cracks, baseboard separation and cracks around door frames. All such shrinkage issues will be addressed during one visit. These are generally taken care of at the one-year mark as your house will continue to settle during the first year.

    Step 4: Tarion Warranty

    After you have owned your home for one year, all warrantable issues must be put in writing and sent to Tarion, who administers the warranty from this time forward. All Tarion information will be provided to you before you close, so you can send the proper forms to the right people. You can call Tarion with any questions, at 1-877-9TARION.

    If you have any issues with your home which affect your ability to live in it comfortably, or any plumbing or electrical emergencies, you can call Carlos at (905) 660-9222. Or, you can e-mail your concerns to carlos@solmar.ca.

    • Fit for habitation.
    • Free of major structural defects.
    • Constructed in accordance with the Ontario Building Code.
    • The most common warrantable occurrences in the first year include the effects of shrinkage of materials, such as nail pops and cracks around door and window frames.

  • Tarion

    Tarion Warranty Corporation is a private corporation that was established in 1976 to protect the rights of new home buyers and regulate new home builders.

    Tarion is responsible for administering the Ontario New Home Warranties Plan Act, which outlines the warranty protection that new home and condominium builders must provide, by law, to their customers.

    The primary purpose of Tarion is to ensure that builders abide by this legislation, and to step in to protect consumers when builders fail to fulfill their warranty obligations.

    Tarion is financed entirely by builder registration, renewal and home enrolment fees and receives no government funding.

    As the regulator of Ontario’s new home building industry, Tarion registers new home builders and vendors, enrols new homes for warranty coverage, investigates illegal building practices, resolves warranty disputes between builders/vendors and homeowners, and promotes high standards of construction among Ontario’s new home builders. Tarion also works with the building industry to help educate new home buyers about their warranty rights, and about how to protect and maintain their warranty.
