Tarion, Ontario’s new home warranty program, designed to protect the public from builder deficiencies, is not doing a very good job.

This according to J. Douglas Cunningham, a former Ontario judge hired to write a report on Tarion.

You can read a good article on Tarion’s own deficiencies, here in the Toronto Star.

    Permanent safety harness anchor installation should be mandatory on all roof renews and new home home and building construction. Painters often have nothing to hook onto and have to use a ridge anchor which is screwed into ridge of roof, requiring patching at end of use.
