Project Completion

At Ridgewater we are always excited to unveil your completed project and hand over the keys, but one final step is required. Before occupancy we must perform a final inspection and walk-through to familiarize you with your new home. This includes all exterior and interior finishes, products, services and operations including maintenance schedules. As well, familiarize you with your 2-5-10 New Home Warranty or 2 year Renovation Warranty and Manufacturer Warranties.

Walk-Through Inspection

At Ridgewater we use a categorized inspection sheet that will guide you through the final inspection stage. Together we will indicate that each phase of the construction contract has been completed. As well, note any deficiencies which will be scheduled for prompt repair or replacement.

  • Siding
