Understanding the HALO Guarantee

The HALO Guarantee (Homeowner Assurance Long-Term Option) is a comprehensive 10-year warranty offered by Coastal Construction, providing exceptional peace of mind for your Whananaki dream home. Let’s delve deeper into what the HALO Guarantee covers:

What is Covered Under the HALO Guarantee?

The HALO Guarantee offers extensive protection against a range of issues that could potentially arise in your new home. Here’s a breakdown of the key areas covered:

  • Structural Defects: This includes any issues that compromise the structural integrity of your home, such as foundation problems, roof leaks that lead to structural damage, or defects in load-bearing walls.
  • Workmanship Errors: The HALO Guarantee covers any issues caused by faulty workmanship during the construction process. This could include problems like improper installation of windows or doors, uneven floors, or faulty electrical wiring.
  • Material Failures: If any of the building materials used in your home fail prematurely due to manufacturing defects, the HALO Guarantee will cover the cost of repair or replacement.

It’s important to note that the HALO Guarantee is a detailed document, and we recommend reviewing it thoroughly to understand the full scope of coverage.  For your convenience, Coastal Construction provides a copy of the guarantee to all homeowners upon completion of their project.

The Importance of a Long-Term Guarantee

In the construction industry, a guarantee is a promise made by a builder to stand behind the quality of their work. However, not all guarantees are created equal. Let’s explore why the 10-year HALO Guarantee offered by Coastal Construction is a significant advantage for homeowners:

Why a 10-Year Guarantee Matters

A 10-year guarantee demonstrates Coastal Construction’s unwavering commitment to exceptional quality and lasting results. It provides significantly more protection compared to the industry standard. Many builders offer warranties that only last for a few years, typically ranging from 1 to 5 years. These shorter warranties may only cover major structural defects and often exclude workmanship errors or material failures.

With the HALO Guarantee’s 10-year coverage, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing that your investment is protected for a much longer period. This extended warranty offers greater security and reduces the financial risk associated with potential issues arising after the initial construction phase.

Comparison with Standard Guarantees

Here’s a table summarising the key differences between the HALO Guarantee and standard guarantees offered by other companies:

Feature HALO Guarantee (Coastal Construction) Standard Guarantees (Industry Average)
Duration 10 years 1-5 years (typically)
Coverage Structural defects, workmanship errors, material failures Primarily structural defects
Peace of Mind High level of security and protection Lower level of protection
Financial Protection Reduces risk of post-construction costs May leave homeowners responsible for repairs

By choosing Coastal Construction and the HALO Guarantee, you’re not just getting a builder; you’re gaining a long-term partner dedicated to the quality and longevity of your Whananaki dream home.
