They were formerly known as Axis Heating and Cooling, and I've used them twice in the past 12yrs. Both for a new A/C at a new house and I was pleased with their price and installation.

No issues.

Every other builder has lot depths larger than Mattamy's, FYI, so while higher density is a thing...it's not the factor in this case.

Just saying...if you're fine with the tiny lot, all good. ;)

I sure hope they started giving more than 82' lot depths. :rolleyes:

That was a major turn off for many buyers, myself included (and I've owned 2 Mattamy homes...Barrhaven & Kanata).

Same issue. It sucks.

The builder tried to repair it after 1yr and the "repair" flaked off after 2yrs and I've just learned to look past it as it wasn't worth my time/energy for multiple repairs....

I believe the upgrade is usually listed as approx. 12", meaning it is not an exact measurement. Provided you're not losing 6"+, I believe a small variance is acceptable per building standards.

Not sure, but the company who installed it should. Typically their sticker is on the inside of the door...I'd give them a call since you could be waiting a while with Tarion.

~7mth delay? You could build an entire home from scratch in that time and they already have the foundation in? :rolleyes:

Sorry to hear that. :(
