The NHBRC warranty scheme was established to cover consumers against major and defined structural defects for a period of up to five years. Enrolling your new home with the NHBRC is not only a statutory requirement but also affords consumers protection against contractors who deliver substandard design, workmanship and poor quality materials.

We understand that building a home is a key milestone in anyone’s life.
