Hello,


I'm interested in house construction and I'd like to know if the government or the states requires you to have any construction warranty for the foundation systems and footings when building new houses (ex. interior concrete-2 years, slabs-4 years, etc).
I've seen that in Ontario-Canada, they have a manual of Construction Performance Guidelines where the builder must have some minimun warranty requirements for diferent parts when building

Do you know where can I find this kind of information, or a link that could have something similar? Do you know if the builders should have certain requirements for the house when you insurance it with an Insurance Company (or should we need to review it with the company)

I'd really appreciate your time, and thanks for your help.
