ONTARIO NEW HOMEOWNERS SELECT BUILDING INDUSTRY'S FINEST FOR 2011 TARION AWARDS

Awards Reflect Consumers' Choice for Best After-Sales Service

TORONTO, April 19 /CNW/ - Tarion Warranty Corporation is pleased to announce its 2011 Awards of Excellence recipients.  These are the top new home builders based on after sales-service performance as determined by builders' own customers.  Awards are being presented to the following builders:

  • Domicile, Ottawa - High-Rise Category
  • Pidel Homes, Guelph - Large Volume Category
  • Wrighthaven Homes Limited, Fergus - Medium Volume Category
  • Cara Custom Homes, Ancaster - Small Volume Category

"These builders understand that a quality product and good customer service are paramount. They take pride in what they do, and this has garnered them a high honour from their customers—who have recognized them for going above and beyond," said Howard Bogach, Tarion President and CEO. "In addition to these four builders, congratulations are due to all of 20 finalists for so capably representing the industry."

To determine the award recipients, a survey was sent to more than 48,000 home buyers who took possession of a new home in Ontario between October 1, 2009 and September 30, 2010.  More than 8,000 responses were received and the results were tabulated by Harris/Decima and Crunch Research.  Questions covered every stage of the after-sales homeowner-builder relationship: from the signing of the agreement of purchase and sale, through construction and the pre-delivery inspection to after-sales service.

The Tarion Awards of Excellence are the only awards that recognize home builders from across Ontario exclusively for their after-sales customer service performance.
