We are completely confident in the quality and workmanship of our homes. Platinum Homes and all our local teams are registered Master Builders and every new home we build is backed by the Master Build 10-Year Guarantee for complete peace of mind.

If you have any questions about the guarantee and what it covers, please talk to your Platinum Homes New Home Consultant.

Builders warranty & construction cover

Platinum Homes is serious about your investment. This is why all our homes come with an Independent Builders Warranty plus a Construction Works Policy to give you complete peace of mind. The Home First Builders Guarantee is issued by Builtin New Zealand Ltd and backed by Southern Pacific Insurance Corp. This Guarantee is completely independent of Platinum Homes.

If you have any questions about the Home First Builders Guarantee and/or the Construction Works Policy - please ask your Platinum Homes Consultant. We’re here to help.

Key benefits of The Master Build Guarantee:

  • Flexible: The Master Build 10-Year Guarantee can be tailored to meet your needs.
  • Non-completion: The guarantee will pay for another builder to finish your home and it will absorb any additional costs of doing that in the unlikely event that we are unable to complete the project for you. It also protects you if any remedial work needs to be done on the work carried out by your builder so far.
  • Loss of deposit: You are covered if your builder is unable to complete your building work and you lose your deposit.
  • Materials and workmanship: This protects you in the unlikely event of a problem with the expected standard of the work by your builder or with the materials used. You are also covered for reasonable costs and expenses relating to the removal and storage of your furniture and alternative accommodation if your home is unable to be lived in as a result of the damage or defect in your claim.
  • Structural defects: If an issue with the expected standard of the work done by your builder results in structural defects to your home you are protected – including for any weather-tightness problems with your home.
  • Transferable: The guarantee stays with the home, not the owner. If you sell your home, the cover transfers to the new owner.

In addition to the Home First Builders Guarantee, a Construction Works Policy (underwritten by QBE) will provide cover for accidental loss at the site during the construction period.
