Pre-delivery inspection (PDI)

Before you take possession of your new home, we will conduct a pre-delivery inspection (PDI).

The PDI will be the first opportunity to view your new home. A manager will guide through a thorough inspection and will demonstrate how the home operating systems work such as ventilation, plumbing and heating.

The PDI form is used to list damaged, incomplete or missing items prior to occupancy. All items are to be listed in detail on the Builders PDI form. When the inspection is complete, you will be asked to sign the form. This form will then be sent to Tarion You can also print a copy of the Tarion PDI Checklist or the brochure Getting Ready for the Pre-delivery inspection to help you through the process.

NOTE: You must send a copy of your 30 day and year end list to Tarion to maintain your Tarion warranty
