Default Tarion - Construction Performance Guidelines (3rd ed.)

If anyone is looking for Tarion's Construction Performance Guidelines (CPG), see:

http://www.tarion.com/Warranty-Prote...uidelines.aspx

Quote:
The Third Edition of the Construction Performance Guidelines is now available, and will apply to all conciliations beginning on January 1, 2013.

The Construction Performance Guidelines is a handy reference guide intended to help builders and homeowners understand which work and material defects are covered under the statutory warranty.
Here is the final list of changes (highlighted in yellow) that have been made from the 2nd edition.

Default PDI reference

I figured my PDI is coming up, and this would be helpful in prepping. I'll just read like 20 pages a day. ;P

Also, I'm not sure how recently the 3rd edition was published, so just a heads up for anyone that was not aware of the change.

Edit/Update:
While skimming through the guidelines I noticed that some sections specifically mentioned the PDI Form. I copied and pasted the section names and remarks in a Google doc, and they are also listed below with links to Tarion.

3. WALL FRAMING
6. PLUMBING
7. ELECTRICAL
8. INTERIOR CLIMATE CONTROL
9. WALL AND CEILING FINISH
10. INTERIOR FINISH
11. CABINETS AND COUNTERTOPS
12. FLOORING
14. GARAGES AND EXTERIORS

FYI, for anyone that is having their PDI now or soonish, the 3rd edition Construction Performance Guidelines apply. (I checked with Tarion.)

Just bumping this thread, I have read all 294 pages of the 2013 revised CPG and then matched it with what ildara provided on google docs.

Those 11 pages are a must read before any PDI. I didn't want to print 294 pages but what ildrara provided was excellent and will be of great use during the inspection.

Glad you found this useful. I updated the links which I noticed were out of date. (I think they were pointing to 2nd edition guidelines.)

Beware of this comment that builders Reps often use during the PDI. That comment is "everything is covered for one year" because as you know everything is NOT covered for one year.

During the PDI you will want to focus on the interior issues, especially hardwood floors, floors, doors, counters, cabinets, cabinet doors, and the typical walls and ceilings.

Operate windows, turn on taps, look under sinks, flush toilets, but focus on the cosmetic stuff I.E. - dents, chips, scratches, sloppy work, damage, etc.

Bottom line is that during the PDI it does not really mater if an HVAC duct has a problem because all that is covered well beyond the PDI. What really matters are things like damage to hardwood floors and that proverbial chip in the granite counter top. In other words, do not waste time on things that do not matter.

Also remember that if anything is dirty, like a floor, or counters, etc. then it MUST be noted on the PDI form that these dirty things could not be properly inspected.

Remember - that after your PDI you leave the home but you still may have a few days before you take possession. During that time workers often enter the home to fix, finish, or improve things. On the day you take possession and before you move furniture into the home, you should walk through the home to make sure there are no new issues.

Don't forget to check the front door and garage door for damage or dents during the PDI.

If anyone in the Halton area wants advice on what to expect during the PDI then feel free to call me at 905 876 4761. www.haltoninspections.com
