Protecting Your Investment

A new home is the single biggest investment most of us will make in our lifetime. It is very important that we do everything we can to make sure it is a good investment!

All Homeowners should expect to receive a written, third-party warranty with their new home purchase. The Atlantic Home Warranty Program (AHWP) offers a great seven-year warranty, with an option for 10 years of coverage. The AHWP requires member builders to meet a high standard of professionalism and quality, and it provides clearly documented guidelines as to what is acceptable and what is expected.

In the unlikely event that your builder does not honor its commitments, the AHWP will step in and make sure your concerns are addressed. Just knowing your builder is a member of a reputable warranty program offers you peace of mind.

Learn more about the AHWP as part of your research prior to selecting a builder. The AHWP website can be found at

The Sawlor process made the building at a distance much smoother than we had ever anticipated.
