New House Advantages
Advantages of Purchasing a New House
When it comes to buying a house, we know that it can be very overwhelming at times. There are many things you must take into consideration when searching for the perfect place for you and your family. If you are on the fence about buying a new home or a home that has previously been lived in, continue to read for our list of advantages when it comes to purchasing a new house.
Peace of Mind:
With a new house, you will receive a new home warranty package that will cover the repairs for any issues your new home may have, free of charge. This will give you the comfort and peace of mind to enjoy your new home. All three of our home builders in Henley Heights are members of the Alberta New Home Warranty Program.
What is the covered by Alberta New Home Mandatory Coverages?
1 year- Labour & Materials: coverage for defects in materials and labour (ex. baseboards, flooring and fixtures)
2 years- Distribution Systems: coverage for defects in materials and labour related to delivery and distribution systems (ex: heating, electrical and plumbing systems)
5 years- Building Envelope: coverage for defects in the building envelope, which is considered in the Act as the system of components that separate the controlled interior air from the exterior (ex. Roof and exterior walls)
10 years- Structural: coverage for the key structural components of your home (ex: frame and foundation)
*It is to be noted that wear and tear, cosmetic damage and acts of nature are not covered by the Alberta New Home Program.
Along with the coverage listed above, some of our builders offer extended coverage. Visit their websites to learn more.

Our new homes are innovatively built to use less energy when compared to older homes. In general, new homes “tend to have a tighter-sealed building envelope that helps prevent conditioned air—cool air in the summer, warm air in the winter—from escaping”. Another way in which new homes are energy efficient are their appliances, which are usually new “green” appliances, such as high-efficiency stoves, refrigerators, washing machines, water heaters furnaces or air conditioning units. Not only will a new house reduce your carbon footprint, but it will also save you money each month on your utility bill.
When purchasing a new home, the work is done for you. There will be no need for you to do costly and time-consuming renovations. Upon moving in, your new home has been designed for living today! Our homes have all been thoughtfully designed with modern architecture, and offer features such as open concept kitchens, walk-in closets, and large master baths.
As everything is brand new in a new home, it will require fewer repairs and less maintenance when compared to an older home. Making life hassle free!
