Kon-strux is a proud member of the Alberta New Home Warranty and Renovation Program
The Alberta New Home Warranty Program (the “Program”) is a leader and innovator in home warranty products. We introduced Canada to the concept and importance of new home warranty back in 1974, and we recently expanded the scope of our products and services to include home renovation warranty and homebuilder business insurance.
We are an independent, not-for-profit new home warranty provider serving approximately 700 Builder Members – the very best of Alberta’s best homebuilding companies.
As we journey into our fifth decade as Alberta’s premier new home warranty, renovation warranty and home builder insurance provider, we remain focused on the key pieces of the homebuilding picture that spurred our creation and have guided our growth: professionalism, performance, responsibility and accountability – the cornerstones of every relationship between our Builder Members and their customers.
Canada’s first new home warranty provider is now offering renovation warranty
The Alberta Renovation Warranty Program (the “Renovation Program”) Members are the elite of Alberta’s home renovation industry, well known for building excellence, outstanding customer service and performance that far surpasses industry standards. How do we know this?
- The Program imposes the province’s most stringent requirements for membership, and we hold our Members to the highest standards of performance, professionalism and accountability
- Our Members must complete formal, industry-specific education to improve competency, performance and service
- Our high standards of membership ensure each of our Members has a history of honouring promises, a proven track record of successful projects and a solid financial foundation
Through all these assurances, the Renovation Program gives homeowners something invaluable: complete confidence that their renovators of choice are the best of ALBERTA’S BEST RENOVATORS.
What is the Renovation Program?
Combining Deposit Protection Insurance up to $100,000 with Warranty Insurance that covers materials and labour up to $100,000, the Renovation Program provides comprehensive protection – and welcome peace of mind – from the moment a homeowner engages with a home renovation company until two years after the work is substantially completed.
The Program is Alberta’s only home warranty provider with dispute resolution processes designed to bring closure to issues builders and homebuyers cannot resolve on their own. We have members of staff trained in mediation – a quick, confidential process that’s highly effective in resolving issues and preserving business relationships; and we have a well-defined Claims Assessment procedure that aligns with the standards set out in Alberta’s Insurance Act.
