Tarion Warranty

The Tarion Home Warranty:

North Loring Inc. operating, as Marc Deroo Fine Homes is a registered Tarion Builder. Marc works with Tarion to ensure that your investment in your new home is protected.

Your new home is required to meet or surpass the structural requirements and health and safety standards of the Ontario Building Code. And like every new home in Ontario, it is protected by a mandatory warranty provided by your builder and backed by the Tarion Warranty.

Tarion, a non-profit, private corporation established in 1976 to protect new homebuyers according to the terms of the Ontario New Home Warranties Plan Act not only requires builders in Ontario to provide new home warranty coverage, but they must also be registered with Tarion and enrol every new home prior to the start of construction.

The Act also gives Tarion responsibility for managing a guarantee fund to ensure that the builder’s warranty will be honoured, and for enforcing the overall terms of the Act.

The following outlines how your home is protected by the Tarion Warranty:

  • Deposits Made to Your Builder
  • Delays in Closing or Occupancy
  • Pre-Delivery Inspection
  • One-Year Warranty
  • Two-Year Warranty
  • Seven-Year Warranty

Energy Star

Energy Star:

Energy efficient choices can save families about a third on their energy bill with similar savings of greenhouse gas emissions, without sacrificing features, style or comfort. ENERGY STAR helps you make the energy efficient choice for your wallet, for your family, and for the environment—bringing these important benefits:

  • Lower Utility Bills

By using less energy for heating, cooling, and water heating, ENERGY STAR certified homes deliver approximately 20% savings on annual utility bills. Over the 7 to 8 years that a typical family lives in a home, you can save thousands of dollars in maintenance cost.

  • Enhanced Performance

In ENERGY STAR certified homes, comfort is ensured with consistent temperatures between and across rooms; indoor air quality is enhanced by reducing dust, pollen, bugs, and excessive humidity; and durability is improved with comprehensive water protection, windows that block damaging sunlight, and better grade equipment.

  • Environmental Protection

The energy used in our homes often comes from the burning of fossil fuels at power plants. So, by using less energy to operate, ENERGY STAR certified homes help to prevent air pollution—an added benefit for today’s environmentally-conscious consumer looking for “green” choices.
