An Introduction To Your Homeowner Manual
Congratulations on your decision to purchase a new home at Donovan!
This Homeowner Manual (“Manual”) has been designed to assist you following the purchase of
your new home. This Manual has been written specifically for the homeowners who purchase
their units directly from the Developer. That stated, subsequent owners may also benefit from
some of the information contained herein (for example, paint color codes in the “Finish
Specifications” section). Subsequent owners may also be entitled to unexpired portions of the
“2/10/10” warranty (please refer to the “Warranty Services” tab).
This guide is divided into eight main sections (see tabs). The first section takes a look at the
professionals that went into making your home the unique piece of craftsmanship it is today. It
also delineates items transferred to the purchaser on the possession date. The remaining
sections cover a great deal of information including the details of each home component,
maintenance/warranty guidelines, and customer service forms designed to enhance our customer
service relationship with you.
Please take time to review this material thoroughly. If you need clarification or additional details
about any topic discussed, please give us a call. We will be delighted to assist you!
Please note that this manual does not create any legal obligation or covenant between the
developer and its original purchasers, their successors, or their assigns. It is not a
document that “runs” with title.

CONDITIONS
1. Notice to Warranty Provider
The homeowner of a dwelling unit has a duty to mitigate loss or damage, including damage caused by
defects (including water penetration) if the defect requires immediate attention. This duty is satisfied by
providing the insurer or it’s duly authorized representative timely notice in writing of detection of loss or
damage. The duty to mitigate survives even if:
a. the dwelling unit is unoccupied;
b. the dwelling unit is occupied by other than the owner;
c. the defect (including water penetration) does not appear to be causing damage;
d. the homeowner advises the strata corporation (if the dwelling unit is in a multi-unit project).

Prior to the expiry date, a purchaser/homeowner shall give the insurer or vendor/developer/general
contractor written notice of any specific building defects claimed under this policy. Notice to the insurer,
setting out the building address and policy number, shall be deemed to satisfy the notice requirement to the
vendor/developer/general contractor.
6. Notice of Claim Prior To Expiry - Insurer
If the vendor/developer/general contractor fails to adequately undertake repairs in a reasonable and
timely fashion or repairs cannot reasonably be expected to be completed prior to the expiry date of the
policy, the purchaser/homeowner can protect the claim by providing written notice to the Insurer within 60
days after the expiry date of the policy. The insurer is entitled to require that such notice include:
a. the policy number;
b. a copy of the notice to the vendor/developer/general contractor;
c. a copy of other correspondence between the purchaser/homeowner and the
vendor/developer/general contractor.
7. Change of Dwelling Unit Ownership/Transferability
The coverage provided by this policy pertains solely to the dwelling unit. No notice of change of ownership
to the Insurer is necessary. All unused benefits under this policy are automatically transferred to any
subsequent homeowner. Notice of expiry of this policy shall be sent to the occupant of the home. This
policy is enforceable though there is no privity of contract between purchaser/homeowner and
vendor/developer/general contractor.
8. Disclosure of Claims History of Insured Dwelling Unit
The Insurer or its duly authorized representative will, upon the request of the homeowner, provide a
statement of claims made applicable to the dwelling unit. Such a statement shall include not less than the
following information:
a. type of claim made;
b. resolution of claim;
c. type of repair performed;
d. date of repair;
e. cost of repair.
9. Subrogation
Where the Insurer makes payment or assumes liability for any payment or repair under this policy:

of the Insurer, to enforce such rights;
Page 20 of 100
c.
where the Insurer has pursued subrogated rights, the purchaser/homeowner shall fully
support and assist the Insurer in the pursuit of those rights, if the Insurer pursues such rights.
10. Implied/Expressed Warranties or Representations
Implied or expressed warranties or representations made by the vendor/developer/general contractor to
the purchaser/homeowner are not binding upon the Insurer, except as set out in legislation or regulation.
11. Delay or Repair Permitted
After the expiry of the workmanship and materials portion of coverage, the Insurer may defer defect repairs
in the building envelope or structure until material loss damage or adverse effect occurs to the building,
provided such occurs on or prior to the applicable expiry date. Where damage has not occurred at the
applicable expiry date, but where it is likely that premature damage to the building will result from the
defect, the Insurer shall repair the defect.
12. Misrepresentation
This policy will be voidable in the event of material misrepresentation or misdescription by the
purchaser/homeowner. Such voidability does not transfer to subsequent purchaser/homeowner.
13. Fraudulent Acts
If any claim is fraudulent, or if fraudulent means or devices are used by the purchaser/homeowner or any
person acting on behalf of and with the consent or knowledge of the purchaser/homeowner, in order to
gain benefit under this policy or if any damage be occasioned by the willful act of or with the connivance of
the purchaser/homeowner, all benefits under this policy to the purchaser/homeowner will be forfeited.

The Product
Introducing Donovan, a glass and concrete building in Yaletown, Vancouver’s most
dynamic neighborhood. Donovan seeks to intertwine warm contemporary design with
cool urban style. It is a soulful private retreat, with natural materials and modern
interiors. Whichever direction you turn, the best of Vancouver surrounds you at
Donovan.
The Developer reserves the right to make modifications or substitutions should they be necessary to maintain the high standards of the
development. E.&OE.
Page 22 of 100
The Process
Long before you moved into your home at Donovan, the construction process involving numerous
craftsmen and hundreds of different materials was underway. We believe that the homeowner
should be aware of some of the interesting processes that went into each home.
Variations
Products used during the construction process may change due to circumstances beyond the
Developer’s control.
For example, variations in products may occur as a result of
supplier/assembly line changes, industry changes, and procurement changes. In all instances, as
required by your purchase agreement, any substitution of method or product shall be of equal or
better quality than the original specification. These changes may lead to variations within the
same type of unit.
Variations within the same type of unit will also occur if the purchaser elected to pay for an
upgrade option.
Quality Assurance Program
The Developer strives to produce the highest possible caliber of home. The Developer’s “Quality
Assurance Program” places company representatives on-site during the construction process to
review every stage and report on any deficiencies they may find. The goal of this program is to
identify problems before they are passed over to the next stage in construction. The “Quality
Assurance Program” endeavors to minimize deficiencies present at the time your take possession
of your new home.
Delivery Date
The delivery date for your home (the date the unit is transferred from the Developer to the first
homeowner) begins as an estimate. Until components are completed and the structure is
enclosed, this delivery date can be dramatically affected by weather conditions and the availability
of labour and materials. Even after the home itself is past weather-related delay potential, the
installation of utility services, final grading, concrete flatwork, etc. can still affect the delivery date.
City occupancy permits are acquired once these elements are complete. Please understand that
the trades are as eager as you to get caught up and deliver your home on time.
** Depending on availability of labour and materials, weather conditions, site conditions and the
construction process, some homes may not be completed by their scheduled delivery dates **

Maintenance – Protecting Your Investment
As with an automobile, your new home requires attention and maintenance from the first day of
your possession. For your convenience, we have assembled a “Home Components” section in
this Manual, which describes routine maintenance procedures for your home’s many components.
This section also provides information on home component warranties.
Please do not forget to read the care and warranty information provided by the trades; for
example, “iMAC’s Natural Stone Countertops Maintenance and Care Guide”. This
information was included in your Welcome Package. Where the trade information
contradicts information included in this manual, please defer to the trade care and
warranty guidelines.
Utility Service Account Responsibility
** Homeowners are responsible for utility costs from the date of possession (the day after
ownership is transferred from the Developer to the homeowner).
Your utility service account (electrical, natural gas) must be set up before your date of closing.
This is extremely important as your electrical and natural gas service will be discontinued if you do
Page 24 of 100
not transfer the account into your name. In addition, a penalty fee of $50 plus outstanding bills
from the date of closing will apply.
ELECTRICAL SERVICE: Your electrical service is provided by BC hydro. You can activate an
account by either calling BC hydro customer accounts division at 604 224-9376, or by filling out
and forwarding a BC hydro transfer form. A BC hydro transfer form is included in the appended
sleeve at the end of the Manual. If you have never had a BC hydro utility account, you will need
to supply some personal information and a reference from a friend or family.
NATURAL GAS, where applicable: The cost of natural gas is included in your monthly strata
fees. If you smell gas at any time, please call the emergency line at 1-800-663-9911. This
number should be recorded where it can be easily accessed in case of an emergency.
TELEPHONE and INTERNET: Telus requires lead-time to book your phone and internet

best to call before you take possession of your home. For information on Telus’ services, please
review the Telus information sheet that was included in your Welcome Package.
NEWSPAPER DELIVERY: The Vancouver Sun and Vancouver Province have access to
Donovan for delivery. For subscription or any other inquiry, please call 604 605-2111, or use the
web @ www.vancouversun.com.
Access and Security
When you received your Welcome Package, you were handed 2 suites keys and 2 radio
frequency remotes (“RF remote(s)”). The RF remotes will open your parkade gates, and any door
where there is a card reader. For example, you must use your RF remote to access the floor to
your suite, the amenity areas and the underground parkade. The only floor that will not require a
RF remote is the elevator access to the ground floor. As such, your visitors will not need to be
walked out of the building when they leave.
Each time you use your RF remote to access the building, your transaction will be monitored via a
computer. If you lose an RF, please report it immediately to your resident/building manager; the
manager will delete it from the system, thereby maintaining the security of the building.
Visitor Intercom System
A visitor intercom has been installed outside the main lobby entry, outside the rear lobby entry, on
parkade entry ramp kiosk and in the P1 level of the parkade. Owners may prescreen visitors via
television channels 116 analog or 399 digital. The intercom system operates when a telephone
is plugged into a phone wall jack. An active telephone line is not required. Your guest simply
dials your code or selects your name by scrolling through the electronic directory on the lobby
panel. Please note random codes, which do not identify your apartment, have been chosen for
security reasons. Once the code/name is dialed, your telephone will ring. When you answer, you
will be communicating with your guest. To unlock a lobby door/parkade gate, hit the digit “9” on
your telephone. To refuse entry, simply hang up. When you unlock the door, the elevator cabs
will be released to allow the visitor to get to your floor. The visitor has approximately two minutes
to reach the elevator, and enter their floor destination.
Page 25 of 100
If you have “call waiting” feature on your phone, and are engaged in a telephone conversation
when a guest dials your code, a distinct tone will be heard. Flash the hook switch to answer the
call. This action will automatically put your outside line “on hold”. While on line, you can open the
door by hitting the digit “9”, or flash the hook switch to refuse entry. Both actions will
automatically reconnect you to the previous “on hold” caller to continue your conversation.
For guests requiring visitor parking, a visitor intercom system has been installed both at the
parking entry ramp and on the P1 parkade level. Simply instruct your guest to proceed to the
parkade ramp, and select your name or code at the electronic directory. You can open the
parkade door by hitting the digit “9” on your phone. Once your guest is parked, they should
proceed to the P1 elevator lobby door. Again, your guest will select your name or code at the
electronic directory. Once you hit the digit “9”, your guest will be permitted into the P1 elevator
lobby. From there, your guest will have two minutes to enter the elevator and proceed to your
floor.
Camera System
Two pinhole and six dome security cameras have been installed on the site. The cameras have
been installed at the following locations:
Main front lobby pointing at the front doors
Rear main floor lobby pinhole camera in SES Enterphone
Inside main parkade gate pointing at the gate
Inside Inner residential gate point at the gate
P1 pinhole camera in the visitor SES Enterphone
Rear loading bay
Games room
Gym
Owners can view security camera information on channel 116 analog, or 399 digital. A DVR will
record all information on the security cameras. When the DVR is full (160 giga bites or
approximately 3 weeks of information), it will record over the most dated information.
Alarm System
Alarms have been installed in the Donovan penthouses (level 20), the sub-penthouses (level 19)
and the townhomes. To activate monitoring, you need to contact a monitoring company. The
cost of monitoring shall be borne by the homeowner. Please remember to test your alarm on a
regular basis – once a month is a good rule of thumb.
For all other units, we have included an alarm installation/monitoring quotation in your Welcome
Package. It is titled “D&L Security Systems Ltd Alarm Quotation”.
All installation/monitoring
costs shall be borne by the homeowner.
The Developer makes no representation that an alarm system will provide the protection for which
it is installed or intended.
Page 26 of 100
Garbage Pickup
As of the date this Manual was printed, your garbage/recycling contract had yet to be negotiated.
Please look for signs posted in the common areas for details regarding garbage collection.
Alternatively, you may contact the Donovan strata manager for more information (Crosby Property
Management: 604-683-8900).
Water Shutoffs
As soon as possible, please re-familiarize yourself with the location of the water shutoff valves in
your home. These were pointed out to you during your initial orientation. Shut offs are usually
located in the storage rooms of your suite (concealed behind the removable panels), below the
sinks, behind the toilet, and/or in the laundry closets. Should you notice a plumbing leak, turn the
water off at these shutoffs, and immediately contact your property manager or our Customer
Service Department. Refer to the “Emergency Procedures” tab for contact information.
Main Bathroom Fan
As required by the British Columbia Building Code (BCBC), principal exhaust fans, such as those
in the main bathrooms, must be on for a minimum of 8 hours per day. This requirement can be
increased, but it will never be decreased. To comply with this requirement, your main bathroom
fan has been set to run between between 9 am and 5 pm daily.
Please be aware that tampering with the fan timer operation (and not
meeting the minimum requirements) will void your entire home warranty.
Dryer Booster Fan
A booster fan has been installed to work in concert with the dryer. This fan will engage when the
dryer is on to assist in moving condensation out of the building. If a disconnect switch is present,
it will be installed in the laundry closet beside/adjacent the dryer - please note this switch has
been set in the “on position” for optimum dryer performance.
Please be aware that tampering with the disconnect switch, by turning it
to the off position, will void your entire home warranty. This switch
should be used for service reasons only.
Geothermal Heat Pump
Please see handouts provided by Connelly Mechanical. These were included in your
Welcome Package.
Your new home is equipped with 1 or 2 geothermal “water source” heat pump(s).
This heating system delivers efficient heating and cooling for your home, but it is complicated and
should only be serviced by professional air conditioning mechanics. Your Strata Corporation, as
part of the monthly maintenance fees, will change your filters as required. Failure to maintain your
unit, and to ensure the filters are clean to allow the designed air flow to pass through the unit, may
result in costly repairs. The airflow across the coil is important, and if it is insufficient, ice may build
Page 27 of 100
up on the coil and result in condensation dripping from your unit outside the drainage pan. THIS
IS NOT COVERED UNDER WARRANTY.
The operation of a heat pump is different than that of a conventional gas fired furnace. As a
result, you will notice differences in how the temperature is maintained. The size of the unit is
based on a “heat loss” calculation, determined by the mechanical engineer. For example, unit
size is based on your individual home’s square foot size, amount of glazing and exposure (north
or south) etc. Although it is designed to maintain temperatures under normal conditions (doors
and windows closed), you should note that under extreme weather conditions the unit may not be
able to maintain a certain set point temperature. THIS IS NORMAL FOR THIS TYPE OF
SYSTEM, AND DOES NOT MEAN YOUR UNIT IS NOT WORKING CORRECTLY.
In simplified terms, your unit operates as follows. In winter, when you require heat, it extracts heat
from the closed loop geothermal system water that is piped throughout the building. It then injects
that heat, by way of a fan coil, into your unit. In summer, the reverse happens. It extracts the
heat the unit absorbs from the return air, and injects that heat into the water to be piped away
from your unit. This type of system requires more time than a conventional gas fired furnace to
increase or decrease temperature, and will function better if you leave the thermostat set at a
certain temperature. If you set the temperature significantly lower at night, it may take a bit longer
to regain the temperature in the morning. THIS IS NORMAL.
It is also important to know that your unit contains both a compressor and a fan. YOUR UNIT
WILL MAKE A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF NOISE UNDER NORMAL OPERATION. SILENT
OPERATION IS NOT REALISTIC. Please expect a level of noise similar to the noise you would
expect from a conventional furnace.
The electric panel provides shutoff breaker(s) for (among other things) the geothermal heating
and cooling system. The electric panel is normally located in the 2nd bedroom, the master
bedroom or the storage room, behind the applicable room door. Please take the time to note its
location.
Thermostat
Your thermostat is a Honeywell TH2110D.
Package.
The operating manual was included in your Welcome
Your thermostat is programmable.
Please familiarize yourself with the operation and
programming of your thermostat, as warranty does not cover improper operation or improper
setting of your thermostat. If you require further assistance please call Honeywell’s customer
service at 1 800 468-1502.
Manufacturer’s Literature
The products installed in your home come with manufacturers “Use and Care Guides” and
“Warranties” – please take the time to read them. These guides and warranties were provided to
you on your possession date. They were included in your Welcome Package. The information
contained in the manufacturer’s literature will not be repeated here.
We make every effort to keep the information in this Manual current. If any detail in our
Manual conflicts with the manufacturer's information or recommendations, follow the
manufacturer's recommendations.
Page 28 of 100
Activate specific manufacturer's warranties by completing and mailing in registration cards
(which should be located in the manufacturer’s literature). In some cases, manufacturer's
warranties may extend beyond the first year; therefore, it is in your best interest to know
about such coverages.

Warranty Service
Warranty Description
The Developer has constructed your home with carefully selected materials and the effort of
experienced craftsmen. Although this group works from detailed plans and specifications, no two
homes are built exactly alike. Each home is unique; in fact, a home is one of the last hand-built
products left in the world.
Each home requires care administered by the homeowner from the very first day. Regular
maintenance is essential to maintaining a quality home for a lifetime. Neglecting routine
maintenance can not only erode home value, it can also affect the overall desirability of the
community. Most importantly, it can void warranty coverage on all or part of your home!
The Developer is a licensed builder registered with the Homeowner Protection Office. Our
licensed builder’s warranty is backed by third party insurance, as per the BC Homeowner
Protection Act. Willis is the third party insurance provider at Donovan.
The Developer, in conjunction with Willis, has arranged for one of the most comprehensive
warranties in the industry. The following table describes the timelines and lengths of the “2/10/10”
coverage:
Warranty length
Coverage description (please consult the Willis home warranty
policy for more details)
12 months
Coverage for any defect in materials and/or labour
15 months
Coverage for any defects in materials and labour in the common
property of a multi-unit building **
24 months
Coverage for any defect in materials and labour supplied for the
electrical, plumbing, heating, ventilation and air conditioning
delivery and distribution systems. In addition, coverage for any
defect in materials and labour supplied for the exterior cladding,
caulking, windows and doors that may lead to detachment or
material damage to the dwelling unit.
10 year
Building envelope warranty
10 year
Structural defects warranty
** Common property is considered all the areas outside of your home bounded by your strata lot.
For the purpose of this warranty, limited common property (areas outside of the outer walls
exclusively for your strata lot’s use) is also included under the coverage.
Should a dispute arise between the homeowner and the Developer regarding a warrantable
construction item, both this Manual and the Willis home warranty will serve as the standard to
settle such disputes.
Page 30 of 100
Deficiency and Warranty Repairs
There will only be one initial orientation per suite. A subsequent purchaser will not have an
opportunity to conduct a second walkthrough with the Developer. Further, all purchaser
warranties will be linked to the initial sale closing date. As such, a subsequent purchaser will only
benefit from the unexpired portions of the warranties. For example, a subsequent purchaser’s
Year End Warranty will expire one year, less one day, after the initial sale closing date. Please
refer to both the Year End and 2nd Year End Corrective Periods for warranty information. .
The closing date between the Developer and the purchaser will be called the “initial sale closing
date”.
Initial Orientation
Inspection Period:
Approx. 1-8 weeks prior to the initial sale closing date
The Customer Service Department will contact the purchaser to set up an initial orientation
appointment to view the purchaser’s new home. The target appointment date is approximately 18 weeks prior to the initial sale closing date. During the inspection, a customer service
representative will:
a. Introduce the purchaser to the various components of his/her new home (for example,
water and gas shut off locations etc); and
b. Make a deficiency list of any outstanding construction deficiencies.
The Developer will endeavor to complete any outstanding deficiencies within a reasonable period
following the initial sale closing date. As noted above, if the purchaser sells the unit after the
orientation, he/she must inform the subsequent purchaser that the orientation has been
conducted, and that only those deficiencies found during the initial orientation will be remedied.
It is not the responsibility of the Developer to obtain a subsequent purchaser’s contact information.
If the Developer cannot reach a subsequent purchaser, the file will be closed and the deficiencies
deemed completed.
Year End Corrective Period
Inspection Period:
No earlier than 12 months from warranty commencement
date
One full year less one day after the initial sale closing date, the homeowner has a second
opportunity to report construction defects (please see notes under “Corrective Period Rules
and Regulations”). This is the best time to report defects such as cracking drywall and other
cosmetic deficiencies due to shrinking and settling. To facilitate repairs, please complete and
forward the “Service Request Form” found at the back of this Manual under the tab “Forms”.
Warrantable service requests will be entered into our database and dealt with in a timely manner
(following the expiry of the Year End Corrective Period).
Corrective Period Rules and Regulations
1.
Requests for either emergency or non-emergency warranty service will only be honored if
same is in writing. Homeowners must record all warrantable requests on the “Service
Request Form” found at the end of this Manual (under the tab “Forms”). The homeowner
must then either e-mail, mail or fax the form to the Developer using the e-mail/address/fax
Page 31 of 100
information noted on the form. If the homeowner mails the “Service Request Form”, he/she
must do so by registered mail. We will not accept either emergency or non-emergency
service requests that contravene this procedure.
2.
The Developer must receive written request for warranty service on or before the day the
applicable warranty expires. If the homeowner does not deliver his/her written
request to the Developer on or before the day the applicable warranty period expires,
then that warranty will be deemed expired. The Developer will begin inspecting nonemergency “Year End Corrective Period” warrantable items/”2nd Year End Corrective
Period” warrantable requests after the applicable warranty period has expired.
3.
The Developer will only attempt to contact a homeowner twice to arrange a warranty
appointment. The Developer will use the owner contact information written on the “Service
Request Form”. If the Developer does not hear back from the homeowner within a 30 day
period, the warranty work will be considered completed and the file will be closed.
4.
The homeowner must be present when the Developer is responding to either emergency or
non-emergency warrantable claims. Please ensure that you schedule your service
appointments so that you can remain at home until the repairs are completed.
5.
The Developer, in its sole discretion, will determine whether or not a service request is
warrantable.
6.
The Developer will determine whether or not a call is an emergency. Emergencies may
include:
• Plumbing and/or gas leaks; or
• A total loss of heat, electricity or water.
Before requesting emergency service, please refer to the “Table of Contents” section
of this Manual for electrical and plumbing troubleshooting tips.
Note: the Developer will not reimburse homeowners for warrantable emergency corrective
actions that contravene the “Emergency Procedures” section of this Manual. Please refer to
the table of contents for the “Emergency Procedures” page number.
7.
Maintenance duties such as sink plug cleanings and burnt out light bulbs will not be
attended to, as this maintenance is normal wear and tear and the responsibility of the
homeowner.
8.
If the Developer is called to a suite to repair a plumbing clog that has been caused by a
homeowner, the Developer will bill the homeowner for same.
9.
Damages incurred as a result of condensation and/or poor ventilation will not be remedied.
Please review the “Avoiding Condensation Problems” literature that was included in your
Welcome Package. For more information, please visit www.cmhc.ca. From this site, search
for the article “Measuring Humidity in Your Home”.
10.
Hardwood damages resulting from either inadequate or excessive suite heat will not be
remedied. According to your Kentwood warranty, environmental conditions must be
maintained with a temperature of 65-75°F (18-24°C), and humidity of 35-55% at all times. A
copy of your Kentwood Warranty has been included in your Welcome Package.
Page 32 of 100
11.
Tampering with the automatic bathroom fan will void your entire home warranty.
Tampering with your booster fan switch, by either setting it to the “off” position or otherwise
disengaging it, will void your entire home warranty
12.
The Developer is not responsible for appliance repairs after the initial sale closing
date. To facilitate an appliance repair, the owner must contact the appliance service
company directly. Please refer to the “Contact Information” tab for the appliance service
phone number(s).
13.
The Developer will only repair some warrantable items once during the term of the warranty
(please refer to the “Home Components” section of this Manual for details regarding
warranty guidelines). For example, the Developer will come once, within the applicable
warranty period, to remedy reported cracks in either the drywall or the ceiling. The
homeowner will be responsible for remedying subsequent cracks, at the homeowner’s cost.
14.
The Customer Service Department will sign off on either a construction or warrantable
deficiency if, in the Customer Service Department’s opinion, the applicable deficiency has
been remedied to industry standards.
2nd Year End Corrective Period
Inspection Period:
No earlier than 24 months from warranty commencement
date
This is the final scheduled corrective period in the “2/10/10” warranty. During this period, the
homeowner should only report defects in the electrical, plumbing, heating, and ventilation. In
addition, any defect in materials and labour supplied for the exterior cladding, caulking, windows
and doors that may lead to detachment or damage to the home is also warrantable. To arrange
repairs for warrantable items, please fill out and return the “Service Request Form” found at the
end of this Manual under the tab “Forms”. Either e-mail, mail or fax this form to the Developer
using the e-mail/address/fax information indicated on the form. If the homeowner mails the
“Service Request Form”, he/she must do so by registered mail. The Developer will use its best
efforts to complete warranty repairs within a reasonable period of time (following the expiry of the
2nd Year End Corrective Period).
Please refer to the “Corrective Period Rules and Regulations” recorded under the “Year
End Corrective Period”. Where applicable, they also apply to the “2nd Year End Corrective
Period”. For example, if the homeowner does not deliver his/her written request to the
Developer on or before the day the applicable warranty period expires, then that warranty
will be deemed expired.
The Developer, in its sole discretion, will determine which “Corrective Period Rules and
Regulations” apply to the “2nd Year End Corrective Period”.
Warranty Reporting After 2nd Year End Corrective Period
After the 2nd Year End Corrective Period, the warranty covering materials and labour is complete.
For the next 8 years (since 2 years have already passed), the Developer covers warrantable
defects in both the building envelope and structural integrity of your home. Report any building
envelope and structural integrity problems to your property management company. We will work
directly with the property management to remedy warrantable issues.
Page 33 of 100
Common Property and Limited Common Property
Service and warranty on all issues relating to areas outside of your home are dealt with through
the property manager. Our customer relations team will work directly with the property manager
to have a warranty defect in the common property solved. Please report any defects you notice to
your property management company.

Emergency Procedures
While emergency warranty situations are rare, when they occur, prompt response is essential.
You may be able to mitigate or solve plumbing and electrical problems by referring to the
troubleshooting tips in the “Home Components” section of this Manual (see table of contents for
electrical and plumbing trouble shooting tips). For natural gas and poison control emergencies,
please phone the numbers noted on the chart below.
The “Home Components” section of this Manual contains care hints for the maintenance of your
home. Care by you may prevent a problem or emergency. Please note that the home
warranty issued by Willis requires the homeowner to mitigate any damage to the home
(including damage caused by defects or water penetration as set out in the warranty
certificate); failure to do so may prejudice the homeowner’s entitlement to coverage under
the warranty.
An emergency constitutes a:
• total loss of heat when the outside temperature is below 50°f
• total loss of electricity
• total loss of water
• plumbing leak that requires the entire water supply to be shut off
• gas leak
During normal business hours, the homeowner may contact either the Property Manager or the
Developer for any warrantable emergency repairs. Please refer to the “Emergency Contacts”
table below for contact numbers. After hours, the homeowner may contact either the Property
Manager or the applicable local utility company. If this does not solve the problem, the
homeowner may then contact the applicable trade contractor listed in the “Contact Information”
section of this Manual.
Please note that the Developer will only reimburse the homeowner for after hours
emergency costs if the Developer, in its sole discretion, determines that:
1.
A warrantable emergency exist;
2.
The homeowner did everything and anything necessary to mitigate the damage;
3.
The homeowner did not contravene procedures noted in the Manual;
4.
The repairs were facilitated by contractors listed under the “Contact
Information” tab in this Manual;
5.
The emergency occurred during the warranty period; and
6.
The emergency is not covered by another insurance policy.
Note: If a service (gas, electricity, water) is out in an entire area, attention from the local utility
company is needed.

Cabinets
Homeowner Use and Maintenance Guidelines
For information regarding your cabinets, please refer the “Bensons Industries Limited Care and
Cleaning” letter that was included in your Welcome Package. Here are some additional tips:
Page 42 of 100
Grain Differences
Your home contains wood or wood veneer cabinets. Due to the natural variations in wood (and
the way wood takes stain), you must expect grain or colour differences between and within the
cabinet components.
Hinges
If hinges catch or drawer glides become sluggish, a small amount of silicone lubricant will improve
their performance.
Moisture
Cabinet surfaces can become damaged or warped when moisture generating appliances are
placed too near the cabinet (such as a crock-pot or kettle). When operating such appliances,
place them in a location that is not directly under a cabinet. Please note: we will not correct
damage to cabinets due to heat/moisture generating appliances.
Initial Orientation and Warranty Guidelines
During the initial orientation, we confirm that all cabinet parts are installed and that their surfaces
are in acceptable condition. For warranty information, please refer to the “Bensons Industries
Limited Warranty” letter which was included in your Welcome Package. During the limited
warranty period:
Alignment
Doors, drawer fronts, and handles should be level and even.
Operation
Cabinets should operate properly under normal use.
Separations
We will correct gaps between either the cabinets and the ceiling, or the cabinets and walls by
caulking same if the gap exceeds 1/8 inch (locations behind appliances are exempted from this
repair).
Warping
If doors or drawer fronts warp in excess of 1/4 inch within 24 inches, we will correct this by
adjustment or replacement. Please note: the warranty coverage will not apply to cabinets that
warp as a result of heat damage from either a stove, kettle or other heat/moisture generating
appliance.
Wood Grain
As previously stated, readily noticeable variations in wood grain and colour are normal in all wood
or wood veneer selections. Replacements are not made due to such variations.
Carpet
Homeowner Use and Maintenance Guidelines
For care and maintenance information, please refer to the following documents:
• “Carpet Stain Removal Guide”;
• “Beaulieu Canada – Residential Flooring – Carpet Care – Basic Care”; and
• “Beaulieu Canada – Residential Flooring – Carpet Care – Professional Cleaning”.
This information was included in your Welcome Package.
Page 43 of 100
For additional care tips, please review the following. Where these tips contradict information
found in the manufacturer’s literature, please defer to the latter.
Burns
Take care of any kind of burn immediately. First snip off the darkened fibers, then use a soapless
cleaner and sponge with water. If the burn is extensive, talk with a professional about replacing
the damaged area.
Cleaning
You can add years to the life of your carpet with regular care. Carpets wear out because of foot
traffic and dirt particles that get trampled deep into the pile beyond the suction of the vacuum. The
dirt particles wear down the fibers like sandpaper and dull the carpet. The most important thing
you can do to protect your carpet is to vacuum it frequently.
Vacuum twice each week lightly and once a week thoroughly. Heavy traffic areas may require
more frequent cleaning. A light vacuuming is three passes; a thorough job may need seven
passes. A vacuum cleaner with a beater-bar agitates the pile and is more effective in bringing dirt
to the surface for easy removal.
Vacuuming high-traffic areas daily helps keep them clean and maintains the upright position of the
nap. Wipe spills and clean stains immediately. For best results, blot or dab any spill or stain; avoid
rubbing. Test stain removers on an out-of-the-way area of the carpet, such as in a closet, to check
for any undesirable effects.
Have your carpet professionally cleaned regularly.
Crushing
Furniture and traffic may crush a carpet's pile fibers. Frequent vacuuming in high-traffic areas and
glides or cups under heavy pieces of furniture can help prevent this. Rotating your furniture to
change the traffic pattern in a room promotes more even wear. Some carpets resist matting and
crushing because of their level of fiber, but this does not imply or guarantee that no matting or
crushing will occur. Heavy traffic areas such as halls and stairways are more susceptible to wear
and crushing. This is considered normal wear.
Fading
Science has yet to develop a colour that will not fade with time. All carpets will slowly lose some
colour due to natural and artificial forces in the environment. You can delay this process by
frequently removing soil with vacuuming, regularly changing air filters in heating and air
conditioning systems, keeping humidity and room temperature from getting too high, and reducing
sunlight exposure with window coverings.
Filtration
If interior doors are kept closed while fans are operating, air circulation from the closed room flows
through the small space at the bottom of the door. This forces the air over the carpet fibers, which
in turn act as a filter, catching particulate pollution. Over time, a noticeable stain develops at the
threshold.
Fuzzing
In loop carpets, fibers may break. Simply clip the excess fibers. If fuzzing continues, call a
professional.
Page 44 of 100
Pilling
Pilling or small balls of fiber can appear on your carpet, depending on the type of carpet fiber and
the type of traffic. If this occurs, clip off the pills. If they cover a large area, seek professional
advice.
Rippling
With wall-to-wall carpeting, high humidity may cause rippling. If the carpet remains rippled after
the humidity has left, have a professional re-stretch the carpeting using a power stretcher, not a
knee-kicker.
Seams
Carpet usually comes in 12-foot widths, making seams necessary in most rooms. Visible seams
are not a defect unless they have been improperly made or unless the material has a defect,
making the seam appear more pronounced than normal. The more dense and uniform the carpet
texture, the more visible the seams will be.
Carpet styles with low, tight naps result in the most visible seams. Seams are never more visible
than when the carpet is first installed. Usually with time, use, and vacuuming the seams become
less visible.
Shading
Shading is an inherent quality of fine-cut pile carpets. Household traffic causes pile fibers to
assume different angles; as a result, the carpet appears darker or lighter in these areas. A good
vacuuming, which makes the pile all go in the same direction, provides a temporary remedy.
Shedding
New carpeting, especially pile, sheds bits of fiber for a period of time. Eventually these loose
fibers are removed by vacuuming. Shedding usually occurs more with wool carpeting than with
nylon or other synthetics.
Snags
Sharp-edged objects can grab or snag the carpet fiber. When this occurs, cut off the snag. If the
snag is especially large, call a professional.
Sprouting
Occasionally you may find small tufts of fiber sprouting above carpet surface. Simply use scissors
to cut off the sprout. Do not attempt to pull it, because other fibers will come out in the process.
Stains
No carpet is stain-proof. Although your carpet manufacturer designates your carpet as stainresistant, some substances may still cause permanent staining. These include, but are not limited
to, hair dyes, shoe polish, paints, and india ink. Some substances destroy or change the colour of
carpets, including bleaches, acne medications, drain cleaners, plant food, insecticides, and food
or beverages with strongly coloured natural dyes (as found in some brands of mustard and herbal
tea).
Refer to carpet care and maintenance brochures for recommended cleaning procedures for your
particular fiber. Pretest any spot-removal solution in an inconspicuous area before using it in a
large area. Apply several drops of the solution, hold a white tissue on the area, and count to ten.
Examine both tissue and carpet for dye transfer and check for carpet damage.
Page 45 of 100
Static
Cooler temperatures outside often contribute to static electricity inside. To avoid the problem, look
for carpets made with anti-static. You can also install a humidifier to help control static build-up.
Initial Orientation And Warranty Guidelines
During your initial orientation, we confirm that your carpet is in acceptable condition. We will
correct stains or spots noted at this time by cleaning, patching, or replacement. Will also ensure
that the edges of carpets (along moldings and stair edges), are held firmly in place. Please note
that in some areas, metal or other edging material may be used where carpet meets with another
floor covering. Please note, we are not responsible for:
• Carpet seams - carpet seams will be visible. We will only repair carpet gaps or frays
noted during the initial orientation.
• Dye lot variations - the Developer is not responsible for dye lot variations if
replacements are made.
For information concerning your product warranty, please refer to the “Beaulieu Canada 10 Year
Limited Residential Carpet Wear Warranty”. For information concerning your carpet installation
warranty, please refer to the “Determination Flooring Carpet Installation Warranty” that was
included in your Welcome Package.
Ceramic Tile
Homeowner Use and Maintenance Guidelines
For detailed information concerning the care and maintenance of your tiles, please refer to the
“iMAC Tile and Stone Care and Maintenance Guide” included in your Welcome Package. For
further care tips, please review the following:
Cleaning
Ceramic tile is one of the easiest floor coverings to maintain. Simply vacuum as required.
Occasionally, a wet mopping with warm water may be appropriate. Avoid adding detergent to the
water. If you feel a cleaning agent is required, use a mild solution of warm water and dishwasher
crystals (they will not result in a heavy, difficult-to-remove lather on the grout). Rinse thoroughly.
The ceramic tile installed on walls or countertops in your home may be washed with any
nonabrasive soap, detergent, or tile cleaner. Abrasive cleaners will dull the finish.
Grout Discolouration
Clean grout that becomes yellowed or stained with a fiber brush, cleanser, and water. Grout
cleansers and whiteners are available at most hardware stores.
Sealing Grout
The grout in your suite is unsealed. Sealing grout is your decision and responsibility. Sealing your
grout may keep your grout cleaner for a longer period of time. Please visit your local hardware
store for grout sealant products and applicators.
Separations
Expect slight separations to occur in the grout between tiles. This grout is for decorative purposes
only; it does not hold the tile in place. Cracks in the grout can be filled using premixed grout
purchased from flooring or hardware stores. Follow package directions.
Tile around bathtubs or countertops may appear to be pulling up after a time. This is caused by
normal shrinkage of grout or caulk and shrinkage of wood members as they dry out. If this occurs,
the best remedy is to purchase tub caulk or premixed grout from a hardware store. Follow
Page 46 of 100
directions on the container. This maintenance is important to protect the underlying surface from
water damage.
Initial Orientation and Warranty Guidelines
For warranty information, please refer to the “iMAC Tile Warranty Letter”, included in your
Welcome Package. During the initial orientation, we confirm that tile and grout areas are in
acceptable condition. We will repair cracked tiles or grout as follows:
Tile, One-Time Repair
We will repair or replace cracked, badly chipped, or loose tiles one time, at the Year End Corrective
Period (please refer to the “Warranty Service” tab for more information.) We are not responsible for
variations in colour or discontinued patterns. New grout may vary in colour from the original.
Grout, One-Time Repair
Cracks appearing in grouting of ceramic tiles at joints or junctions with other materials are
commonly due to shrinkage. The Developer will repair grouting, if necessary, one time at the
Year End Corrective Period (please refer to the “Warranty Service” tab for more information). We
are not responsible for colour variations in grout or discontinued coloured grout. Any grouting or
caulking that is needed after that time is your responsibility.
Closet Shelves and Organizers
Homeowner Use and Maintenance Guidelines
Please refer to the “Glass World Maintenance Guide” for maintenance of standard closet shelving.
If you purchased a closet upgrade, also refer to “Sunburst Cleaning Instructions for Lifestyle
Closet Systems”. These materials were included in your Welcome Package that was handed to
you upon possession.
Warranty Guidelines
Please refer to the “Glass World Warranty” for a copy of the standard closet shelving warranty. If
you purchased a closet upgrade, please refer to the “Sunburst Product Warranty”. The applicable
warranty was included in your Welcome Package.
Condensation
Homeowner Use and Maintenance Guidelines
When warm, moist air comes into contact with cooler surfaces, the moisture condenses. Outside
we see this as dew; inside you may see it as a layer of moisture on glass windows and doors.
This condensation comes from high humidity within the home, combined with low outside
temperatures and inadequate ventilation.
Some experts have estimated that a typical new home contains many gallons of water. Water is
part of lumber, concrete, drywall texture, paint, caulk, and other materials used in building. Wet
weather adds more moisture. This moisture evaporates into the air as you live in your home,
adding even more moisture to that which is already generated by normal living activities. Over
time, this source of moisture will diminish. To reduce in-suite moisture, please:
• Do not cover or interfere in any way with the fresh air supply to your suite;
• Keep the dryer exhaust hose clean and securely connected;
• Keep the dryer lint trap clean;
• Do not interfere with the dryer booster fan. Where applicable, there may also be a
booster fan disconnect switch (located beside/adjacent your dryer). If installed, do
not turn it off.
Failure to follow these instructions will void your entire home
warranty;
Page 47 of 100
• Develop the habit of running the hood fan when you are cooking;
• Run you bathroom fan(s) when taking a shower or bath. Continue running the fan(s) for
approximately 1 hour following your shower or bath. Failure to follow this instruction will
void your entire home warranty;
• Do not tamper with the main bathroom fan timer. It is wired to run 8 hours each day.
Tampering with same will void your entire home warranty;
• Leave several windows slightly open during spring, summer, fall and winter. This will allow
humidity to escape (we have found that the fan alone does not lower humidity enough
during the wet, cold winter). This will also prevent excessive moisture from forming on the
inside of your windows. Keeping windows slightly open throughout the year will help:
a. Keep the air in your suite fresh;
b. Prevent damage to your possessions; and
c. Prevent damage to your suite.
• Avoid setting your thermostat at extreme temperatures. Heating your home will cause the
materials to dry out faster, generating more moisture into the air. Drying materials out too
fast also increases shrinkage cracks and separations
Examples of damage are:
• Mold growing on window frames, drywall and other surfaces (very unhealthy!);
• Cords on the window blinds swelling, making the blinds hard to operate and likely to break;
and
• Water filling the bottom window track and damaging the drywall and wood sill beside it.
If your windows are fogged up or wet on the inside, you are damaging your home.
Normal Activities
As you live in your home, your daily lifestyle contributes to the moisture in the air. Cooking,
laundry, baths and showers, aquariums, plants, and so on all add water to the air in your home.
Your daily routine can mitigate the amount of moisture in your home, and reduce condensation on
interior surfaces.
For more information, please review the “Avoiding Condensation Problems” literature that was
included in your Welcome Package. You may also visit www.cmhc.ca. From here, search for the
article “Measuring Humidity in Your Home”.
Warranty Guidelines
Condensation usually results from weather conditions and a family's lifestyle. The Developer has
no control over these factors. The warranty coverage excludes condensation.
Countertops
Homeowner Use and Maintenance Guidelines
To extend the life of your natural stone countertops, please review the care tips provided by
iMAC; specifically, the “iMAC Natural Stone Countertop Maintenance and Care Guide”, the “iMAC
Quartz Countertop Maintenance and Care Guide”, and the “iMAC Tile and Stone Care and
Maintenance Guide”. These letters/guides were included in your Welcome Package. It is
extremely important to review and implement the recommended care requirements. If
countertops are not cared for in accordance with iMAC’s guidelines, iMAC’s warranty
covering same will be void. If you have ANY questions about the maintenance of your
natural stone countertops, please contact iMAC directly at either 604-783-7199 or 604-3248288.
Page 48 of 100
To care for your Acri-Tec vanity top with integral sink, please read the “Zen Sink Collection
Care & Cleaning Guide” included in your Welcome Package. Again, failure to follow maintenance
instructions may void your warranty.
Here are some additional tips:
Cutting Board
Use a cutting board to protect your counters when you cut or chop. Protect the counter from heat
and from extremely hot pans. If you cannot put your hand on it, do not put it on the counter.
Caulking
The caulking between the countertop and the wall, along the joint at the backsplash and around
the sink may shrink, leaving a slight gap. Maintaining a good seal in these locations is important to
keep moisture from reaching the wood under the laminates and to prevent warping.
Mats
Rubber drain mats can trap moisture beneath them, causing the laminated plastic to warp and
blister. Dry the surface as needed.
Natural Stone Cleaning, as per the iMAC literature included in your Welcome Package
Keeping your natural stone clean is critical to maintaining the original appearance of your
countertop. “Don’t just pick up any cleaner from your local grocery store and use to clean your
stone and grout. You would be surprised how many cleaners contain at least trace amounts of
acid that can cause quick or eventual damage to fine stone and grout. Most stone and ceramic
tile outlets carry cleaners that are specially designed to properly care for these fine surfaces.”
A stone cleaner may be purchased through the iMAC store, at the address noted below.
11488 Eburne Way
Richmond, B.C.
V6V 3E1
604-324-8288
Natural Stone Sealing, Where Applicable
Please refer to the iMAC literature, included in your Welcome Package, to determine
whether or not your countertop requires sealant. If you require additional information,
please contact iMAC directly at 604-324-8288.
Keeping your natural stone sealed is also critical to maintaining your countertop’s original
appearance. Material should be re-sealed until it no longer accepts additional sealant. Coats of
sealant are usually applied 24 hours apart, so that the sealant may soak in and harden. This
process of re-sealing will help eliminate stains from occurring. Where applicable, countertops are
factory sealed; however, they will require frequent re-sealing throughout their life span. Sealing
should be re-applied once a year for granite products, and more often for marble and limestone
products. Please refer to the iMAC literature for information regarding sealants. Sealants may
also be purchased through the iMAC store, at the location indicated above.
Initial Orientation and Warranty Guidelines
During your initial orientation, we confirm that all countertops are in acceptable condition. Please
remember that stone countertops are a natural product, and will have variations in grain and
texture. Stone surfaces may even have fissures and/or tiny pinholes. Grain variations, fissures
and tiny pinholes are all acceptable conditions, as they occur naturally in the formation of stone.
We will repair the following surface damage noted during the initial orientation:
• Chips; and
Page 49 of 100
•
Cracks that extend from the surface of the slab, into the stone and through the grain. All
other cracks will be deemed fissures, and will not be repaired.
Repair of surface damage noted subsequent to the closing is one of your home maintenance
responsibilities.
Please refer to the “iMAC 2 Year Limited Warranty on Stone Countertops” for more warranty
information on natural stone. Please refer to the “Zen Sink Collection Warranty” for warranty
information on your Acri-Tec Vanity Top with Integral Sink.
Also note:
Separation From Wall
Separation of countertops from walls, backsplash, and around sinks results from normal shrinkage
of materials. The Developer will re-caulk reported areas one time during the Year End Corrective
Period (see the “Warranty Services” tab). Subsequently caulking will be your home maintenance
responsibility.
Countertop Seams, where applicable
Laminated countertops will have one or more discernible seams. We will repair gaps or differential
at the seams that exceed 1/16 inch. We will only repair gaps or seam differentials one time
during the Year End Corrective Period (see the “Warranty Services” tab). Subsequent repairs will
be your home maintenance responsibility. We do not repair seams that have been swollen as a
result of the homeowner allowing water to stand over those seams. The seams must be kept dry
at all times. Please turn to the “Warranty Services” tab for more information.
Disposal – Food Waste
Homeowner Use and Maintenance Guidelines
For information regarding the care and maintenance of your food waste disposal, please refer to
the “Insinkerator Badger 1 Operation and User Maintenance Instructions” that was included your
Welcome Package.
Warranty Guidelines
For warranty information, please refer to the “Insinkerator Disposer Warranty” letter that was
included in your Welcome Package.
Doors
Homeowner Use and Maintenance Guidelines
Wood doors are subject to natural characteristics of wood, such as shrinkage and warpage.
Natural fluctuations caused by humidity, showers, dishwashers, temperature extremes, etc. can
result in interior doors needing minor adjustments. To best care for your home’s doors, please
read the tips listed below:
Bi-Fold Doors, where applicable
Interior bi-folds sometimes stick or warp because of weather conditions. Apply a silicone lubricant
to the tracks to minimize this inconvenience.
Failure To Latch
If a door will not latch because of minor settling, you can correct this by making a new opening in
the jamb for the latch plate (remortising), and raising or lowering the plate accordingly.
Hinges
Page 50 of 100
You can remedy a squeaky door hinge by removing the hinge pin and applying a bit of grease to
it. Avoid using oil, as it can gum up or attract dirt. Failing to lubricate hinges will cause them to
wear and deposit black soot on the carpet or flooring.
Shrinkage
Use putty, filler, or latex caulk to fill any minor separations that develop at mitered joints in door
trim. Follow with painting. Panels of wood doors shrink and expand in response to changes in
temperature and humidity. Touching up the paint or stain on unfinished exposed areas is your
home maintenance responsibility.
Slamming
Slamming doors can damage both doors and jambs and can even cause cracking in walls. Avoid
slamming doors.
Sticking
The most common cause of a sticking door is the natural expansion of lumber caused by changes
in humidity. During a damp season, a door may stick more frequently. Do not plane the door
during this time unless it continues to stick after the weather changes.
Before planning a door because of sticking, try two other steps: first, apply either a paste wax, a
light coat of paraffin, or candle wax to the sticking surface; or second, tighten the screws that hold
the door jamb or door frame. If planning is necessary even after these measures, use sandpaper
to smooth the door and paint the sanded area to seal against moisture.
Warping
If a door warps slightly, keeping it closed as much as possible often returns it to normal.
Weather Stripping
Weather stripping (sealer around door opening) and exterior door thresholds (bottom plate of
door) occasionally require adjustment or replacement.
Initial Orientation and Warranty Guidelines
During the initial orientation, we confirm that all doors are in acceptable condition and correctly
adjusted. We will repair construction damage to doors noted on the initial orientation list. For
door warranty information, please refer to “Shanahan’s Interior Wood Door Warranty”. This
warranty was included in your Welcome Package.
Please note, the following door defects are covered by a one year limited warranty:
Adjustments
Because of normal settling of the home, doors may require adjustment for proper fit. The
Developer will make such adjustments during the first year.
Panel Shrinkage
Panels of wood doors shrink and expand in response to changes in temperature and humidity.
Although touching up the paint or stain on unfinished exposed areas is your home maintenance
responsibility, we will repair split panels that allow light to be visible during the first year.
Warping
The Developer will repair doors that warp in excess of 1/4 inch during the first year warranty
period, within our warranty procedure.
Page 51 of 100
Dryer Booster Fan
A booster fan has been installed to work in concert with the dryer. This fan will engage when the
dryer is turned on to assist in moving condensation out of the building. If a disconnect switch has
been installed in the laundry closet, please leave it in the “on (up) position”.
PLEASE BE AWARE THAT TAMPERING WITH THE BOOSTER FAN AND/OR THE BOOSTER
FAN SWITCH WILL VOID YOUR ENTIRE HOME WARRANTY.
Drywall
Homeowner Use and Maintenance Guidelines
Please review the following drywall maintenance tips:
Ceilings
The ceilings in your home are easy to maintain: periodically remove dust or cobwebs as part of
your normal cleaning and repaint as needed.
Repairs
With the exception of limited one-time repair service provided by the Developer (see below), care
of drywall is your maintenance responsibility. Most drywall repairs can be easily made. This work
is best done when you redecorate the room.
Repair hairline cracks with a coat of paint. You can repair slightly larger cracks with drywall filling
compound. To correct a nail pop, reset the nail with a hammer and punch. Cover it with drywall
filler, which is available at paint and hardware stores. Apply two or three thin coats. When dry,
sand the surface with fine-grain sandpaper, and then paint. You can fill indentations caused by
sharp objects in the same manner.
Initial Orientation and Warranty Guidelines
During the initial orientation, we confirm that drywall surfaces meet industry standards. The “5
foot, 2 second” rule will apply during the orientation. Briefly, the “5 foot, 2 second” rule states
that a drywall imperfection will only be repaired if you can see same from a standing distance of 5
feet and within a time frame of 2 seconds. If not, it is not a defect.
The Developer will not repair drywall damage caused after ownership is transferred from the
Developer to the homeowner. Repair of drywall damage caused after completion is one of the
homeowner’s maintenance responsibilities. Please note it is our experience that drywall surfaces
may be damaged during the move in process. As such, please instruct your movers to use extra
caution to prevent same.
The following drywall defects are covered by a one year limited warranty. Please refer to section
7 of the “Corrective Period Rules and Regulations” for more information.
One Time Repairs
Slight cracking, nail pops, or seams may become visible in walls and ceilings. These are caused
by the shrinkage of the wood and normal deflection of rafters to which the drywall is attached. We
will repair drywall shrinkage cracks and nail pops one time at the Year End Corrective Period. It is
your responsibility to paint these repairs. Touch-ups may be visible.
Repainting the entire wall or the entire room to correct flashing is your choice and responsibility.
You are also responsible for custom paint colours or wallpaper that has been applied subsequent
Page 52 of 100
to closing. Due to the effects of time on paint and wallpaper, as well as possible dye lot variations,
touch-ups are unlikely to match the surrounding area.
Please note: we do not repair drywall flaws that are only visible under particular lighting
conditions.
Related Warranty Repairs
If a drywall repair is needed as a result of poor workmanship (such as blisters in tape) or another
warranty-based repair (such as a plumbing leak), it is completed by touching up the repaired area
with the same paint that was on the surface when the home was delivered. If more than one-third
of the wall is involved, we will repaint the wall corner to corner. You are responsible for custom
paint colours or wallpaper that has been applied subsequent to closing. The effects of time on
paint and wallpaper, as well as possible dye lot variations, mean touch-up may not match the
surrounding area.
Electrical System
Homeowner Use and Maintenance Guidelines
Know the location of the electrical breaker panel; it includes a main shut-off that controls all the
electrical power to the home. Individual breakers control the separate circuits. Each breaker is marked
to help you identify which breaker is connected to which major appliance, outlets, or other service.
Should a failure occur in any part of your home, always check the breakers in the main panel box.
Main Electric Breaker Panel
An electrical breaker panel provides the main shutoff breaker for all the electricity in your home.
The main electrical breaker panel is usually located in either the 2nd bedroom, the masterbedroom
or the storage closet, behind the applicable room door. Please take the time to note its location.
Breakers
Circuit breakers have three positions: on, off, and tripped. When a circuit breaker trips, it must first
be turned off before it can be turned on. Switching the breaker directly from tripped to on will not
restore service.
Kitchen Puck Light Transformer
In some homes, the kitchen puck light transformer is located behind the fridge. The fridge can be
removed by opening the fridge door, and unclipping the white clasps located on the frame – this
was demonstrated during the initial orientation. Please be careful not to damage the floor when
you remove the fridge. If you have any questions, concerning fridge removal, please do not
hesitate to contact our customer service office at 604-895-0428.
Breakers Tripping
Breakers trip as a result of: plugging too many appliances into the circuit; a worn cord; a defective
appliance; or operating an appliance with too high a voltage requirement for the circuit. The
starting of an electric motor can also trip a breaker.
If a circuit trips repeatedly, unplug all items connected to it and reset same. If it trips when nothing
is connected to it, you need an electrician. If the circuit remains on, one of the items you
unplugged is defective and will require repair or replacement.
Buzzing
Fluorescent fixtures use transformer action to operate. This action sometimes causes a buzzing.
Loud buzzing may mean the transformer needs to be replaced.
Page 53 of 100
Fixture Location
We install light fixtures in the locations indicated on the plans. Moving fixtures to accommodate
specific furniture arrangements or room use is your responsibility.
GFCI (Ground-Fault Circuit-Interrupters)
GFCI receptacles have a built-in element that senses fluctuations in power. Quite simply, the
GFCI is a circuit breaker. Building codes require installation of these receptacles in bathrooms
and kitchens (basically, areas where an individual can come into contact with water while holding
an electric appliance or tool). One GFCI breaker can control up to three or four outlets. Each
GFCI circuit has a test and reset button. Once each month, press the test button. This will trip the
circuit. To return service, press the reset button. If a GFCI breaker trips during normal use, it may
indicate a faulty appliance and you will need to investigate the problem. Heavy appliances are not
plugged into a GFCI receptacle, as they will trip the GFCI breaker.
CAUTION: if you plug a refrigerator or food freezer into a GFCI-controlled outlet, the GFCI
breaker will trip. The food stored in your fridge/freezer will be ruined. Our limited warranty
coverage does not cover such damage.
Grounded System
Your electrical system is a three-wire grounded system. Never remove the bare wire that connects
to the box or device.
Light Bulbs
You are responsible for replacing burned-out bulbs, other than those noted during your initial
orientation. When you do replace bulbs, avoid exceeding the wattage indicated inside the fixture
as this may cause a safety hazard and void the warranty on the fixture.
Modifications
If you wish to make any modifications, contact a qualified electrician. The strata corporation will
have a complete list of contacts, or you may reference our sub-trades in contact information of this
section. Having another electrician modify your electrical system during the warranty period may
void that portion of your limited warranty.
Outlets
If an outlet is not working, check first to see if it is controlled by a wall switch or GFCI. Next, check
the breaker. If no apparent reason is found, contact either the Developer (if the problem occurs
within your warranty period), or a qualified electrician (if the problem occurs after the warranty has
expired).
Troubleshooting Tips: Electrical
No Electrical Service Anywhere In The Home
Before calling for service, check to confirm that the:
•
Service is not out in the entire area. If so, contact the utility company.
•
Main breaker and individual breakers are all in the on position.
No Electrical To One Or More Outlets
Before calling for service, check to confirm that the:
•
Main breaker and individual breakers are all in the on position.
Page 54 of 100
•
Applicable wall switch is on.
•
GFCI is set (see details on GFCIs, earlier in this section).
•
Item you want to use is plugged in.
•
Item you want to use works in other outlets.
• Bulb in the lamp is good.
Even if the troubleshooting tips do not identify a solution, the information you gather
will be useful to the service provider you call
Initial Orientation and Warranty Guidelines
During the initial orientation, we confirm that light fixtures are in acceptable condition and that all
bulbs are working. The warranty excludes any fixture you supplied. We provide the following
limited electrical warranty:
Designed Load
During the 1st two years of the warranty, the Developer will repair any:
a. Electrical wiring that fails to carry its designed load to meet specifications (with the exception
of alarm pre-wiring); and
b. Electrical outlet, switch or fixture that does not function as intended.
Please note this warranty does not cover either:
• GFCI (Ground-Fault Circuit-Interrupters)
Food spoilage that results from plugging refrigerators or freezers into a GFCI outlet; or
• Power Surge
Power surges. Power surges are the result of local conditions beyond the control of the
Developer and are excluded from limited warranty coverage. These can result in burned-out
bulbs or damage to sensitive electronic equipment such as TVs, alarm systems, and
computers. Damage resulting from lightning strikes are excluded from limited warranty
coverage.
Gas Shut-Offs
Homeowner Use and Maintenance Guidelines
Gas Barbeque Shutoff Valve
Some of the units are equipped with a gas outlet for the barbeque. You will find the gas shut off at
the outlet. To turn the gas off, turn the yellow handle 90° perpendicular to the pipe.
Alternatively, to turn the gas on, turn the yellow handle parallel to the pipe. We recommend you
always turn the gas off once you have finished barbequing.
Gas Oven Shutoff Valve
There is a gas shut off behind each oven. To access the shut off, open the oven door, unscrew
the two screws at each corner of the appliance, and remove the stove. Please be careful not to
damage the floor when you remove the oven.
Gas Leak
If you suspect a gas leak, leave the home and call Terasen Gas at their emergency number, 1-800- 6639911, immediately.
Page 55 of 100
Warranty Guidelines
The gas company is responsible for leaks up to the main building meter on the exterior of the
building. The Developer will correct leaks from the meter to the home for a period of two years
after the closing date when the unit is first sold.
Hardware
Homeowner Use and Maintenance Guidelines
Door knobs and locks should operate correctly with little attention. Over time, they may need slight
adjustments due to normal shrinkage of the framing. Occasionally, you may need to tighten
screws or lubrication.
Initial Orientation and Warranty Guidelines
We confirm that all hardware is in acceptable condition during the initial orientation. For hardware
warranty information, please refer to “Shanahan’s Finish Door Hardware Warranty”. This warranty
was included in your Welcome Package. The limited warranty excludes repairs for cosmetic
damage subsequent to the initial orientation.
The Developer will repair hardware items that do not function as intended during the first year of
the warranty, and only through our warranty procedures (see “Warranty Services” tab).
Hardwood Flooring
Homeowner Use and Maintenance Guidelines
For proper care and maintenance of your hardwood floors, please refer to the “Kentwood Product
Warranty, Care and Maintenance Guide”. This was included in your Welcome Package. Failure
to follow floor care instructions will void your hardwood warranty. Please note the following
paragraph included in the warranty:
“Ensure that environmental conditions are maintained with a temperature of
65-75°F (18-24°C), and humidity at 35-55% at all times. Hardwood flooring
reacts to changes in the environment. Excessive heat or dryness can result in
gapping or splitting; excessive humidity can result in cupping. Gapping,
splitting, cupping or other problems resulting from exposure to improper
environmental conditions ARE NOT covered by the product warranty.”
We have included the following additional care tips:
Remove High Heel Shoes and Trim Pet’s Nails
Hardwood floors may be damaged by the extreme force caused by lady’s high heel shoes
(measured in pounds per square inch (psi)). For example, a car has a load of 28-30 psi, while a
125 pound woman with high heels has a load of 2000 psi!!. High heels will cause indentation
in wood flooring! As such, ask your guest to remove her heels to protect your floor!
A general rule of thumb is to avoid letting any sharp or pointed object come into contact with your
floor. This includes pets’ nails, which should be trimmed to minimize damage!
Felt Tabs
Insert felt protector pads on the feet of all furniture and accessories that will be placed directly
onto the floor surface.
Cleaning
Protect the floor from any exposure to liquids, water or other forms of moisture. Sweep or vacuum
the floor daily to keep it clean and free of dust. Please ensure that your vacuum’s wheels are not
Page 56 of 100
damaging the floor. For more thorough cleaning, use a wood floor cleaning solution approved by
the floor supplier (“Contact Information” tab). Do not use any household cleaners, oils, soaps,
waxes or any abrasive materials/scouring agents on your wood floor.
Hardwood Floor Color Change
Hardwood flooring will naturally undergo a change in color as it adjusts to the ambient light
conditions of your home environment. The degree of color change varies by species. To ensure a
uniform change, it is recommended that you do not place area rugs on the new floor for sixty days
after installation. Thereafter, periodic re-arrangement of furniture and area rugs will help ensure
that your flooring colors evenly.
Initial Orientation and Warranty Guidelines
Elevation/Gap Variations
Manufacturer guidelines state that strip hardwood flooring shall be installed to provide a surface
where adjacent strips have no more than a 2mm difference in elevation (a 2mm difference is
approximately the thickness of a dime). Flooring not meeting this standard shall be repaired. This
rule also applies to the gap variances between planks (for example, gap variances greater than 2
mm between planks will be repaired).
Colour and Grain Variations
Please note that wood is a natural product, and variation in colour and grain pattern from one
piece of flooring to another is normal.
Floor Finish
During your initial orientation, the Developer will review the hardwood floors and determine if any
scratches and gouges are present. The “5 foot, 2 second” rule will apply. Briefly, the “5 foot, 2
second” rule states that a gouge/scratch will only be repaired if you can see same from a standing
distance of 5 feet and within a time frame of 2 seconds. If not, it is not a defect.
It is important to note that the Developer is not obligated to repair hardwood damage caused after
ownership is transferred from the Developer to the homeowner. Repair of floor damage caused
after completion is one of the homeowner’s maintenance responsibilities. Please note it is our
experience that hardwood floors may be damaged during the move in process. As such, please
instruct your movers to use extra caution to prevent damage.
For more information concerning the product warranty, please review the “Kentwood
Product Warranty, Care and Maintenance Guide” that was included in your Welcome
Package. For information concerning the installation warranty, kindly review the “Cypress
Hardwood Flooring Installation Warranty” – this was also included in your Welcome
Package.
Heating and Cooling
Your new home is equipped with 1 or 2 geothermal “water source” heat pump(s).
This heating system delivers efficient heating and cooling for your home, but it is complicated and
should only be serviced by professional air conditioning mechanics. Your Strata Corporation, as
part of the monthly maintenance fees, will change your filters as required. Failure to maintain your
unit, and to ensure the filters are clean to allow the designed air flow to pass through the unit, may
result in costly repairs. The airflow across the coil is important, and if it is insufficient, ice may build
up on the coil and result in condensation dripping from your unit outside the drainage pan. THIS
IS NOT COVERED UNDER WARRANTY.
Page 57 of 100
The operation of a heat pump is different than that of a conventional gas fired furnace. As a
result, you will notice differences in how the temperature is maintained. The size of the unit is
based on a “heat loss” calculation, determined by the mechanical engineer. For example, unit
size is based on your individual home’s square foot size, amount of glazing and exposure (north
or south) etc. Although it is designed to maintain temperatures under normal conditions (doors
and windows closed), you should note that under extreme weather conditions the unit may not be
able to maintain a certain set point temperature. THIS IS NORMAL FOR THIS TYPE OF
SYSTEM, AND DOES NOT MEAN YOUR UNIT IS NOT WORKING CORRECTLY.
In simplified terms, your unit operates as follows. In winter, when you require heat, it extracts heat
from the closed loop geothermal system water that is piped throughout the building. It then injects
that heat, by way of a fan coil, into your unit. In summer, the reverse happens. It extracts the
heat the unit absorbs from the return air, and injects that heat into the water to be piped away
from your unit. This type of system requires more time than a conventional gas fired furnace to
increase or decrease temperature, and will function better if you leave the thermostat set at a
certain temperature. If you set the temperature significantly lower at night, it may take a bit longer
to regain the temperature in the morning. THIS IS NORMAL.
It is also important to know that your unit contains both a compressor and a fan. YOUR UNIT
WILL MAKE A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF NOISE UNDER NORMAL OPERATION. SILENT
OPERATION IS NOT REALISTIC. Please expect a level of noise similar to the noise you would
expect from a conventional furnace.
FOR MORE INFORMATION, PLEASE REVIEW BOTH THE “GEOTHERMAL HEAT PUMP”
AND THE “COOLING AND HEATING REFRIGERATION CYCLES” LITERATURE THAT WAS
INCLUDED IN YOUR WELCOME PACKAGE.
The electric panel provides shutoff breaker(s) for (among other things) the geothermal heating
and cooling system. The electric panel is normally located in either the 2nd bedroom, the
masterbedroom or the storage room, behind the applicable room door. Please take the time to
note its location.

Sink and Faucet Winterizing Instructions, 20th floor penthouses only
It is imperative that your outdoor kitchen be winterized BEFORE THE FIRST FROST of every
year. If water is left in the system, it can lead to a broken faucet or plumbing line, which can
further lead to a water leak within your unit. It may also damage units below yours!
Winterizing requires two steps:
1. First, the water must be drained from the piping and faucet. To do this, find the access
panel located in the wall off the master bedroom walk-in closet. Next, turn the water off to
both the hot and the cold lines, by turning the 2 yellow handles on the hot and cold water
lines 90 degrees (pull down). The handles should now be perpendicular to the pipe.
Then, go up to the roof and see if the hot and cold water is completely off at the sink
faucet. If it is, attach the provided short piece of garden hose to the hose bibs with the
blue handles (located right below the yellow handled valves (these hose bib’s have been
positioned facing forward for easy draining)), or place a bucket in front of them to catch the
water. Then, open up the hose bib and drain the water into the bucket. While the bucket is
still in position, turn on the faucet and the outside hose tap on the side of the outdoor
kitchen. This will allow air to enter the piping. Pull the hand spray out of the spout and
raise it high in the air - this will ensure that the water in the tap drains down the piping into
the bucket. Pour the bucket water down your bathroom drain. Make sure you do this for
both the hot and the cold lines.
2. Second, the water needs to be drained from the trap under the outdoor sink. To do this,
place a bucket below the trap, and unscrew the cap on the bottom of the trap. This will
allow the water to be drained. It is important to leave the cap off of the trap during the cold
season, as this will prevent rain water in the sink from building up in the trap. Cover the
sink to prevent it from filling with rainwater over the winter. Please remember to put the
cap back on before you use your sink and faucet.
If the above procedure is not followed, plumbing damage will ensue. THIS DAMAGE WILL
NOT BE COVERED BY WARRANTY.
Paint and Stain
Homeowner Use and Maintenance Guidelines
For tips on how to clean painted surfaces, please refer to the “ICI Paints Technical Service
Department Bulletin”. This literature was included in your Welcome Package.
Because of changes in the formula for paint (such as the elimination of lead to make paints safer),
painted surfaces must be washed gently using mild soap and as little water as possible. Avoid
abrasive cleaners, scouring pads, or scrub brushes. Flat paints show washing marks more easily
than gloss paints do. Often better results come from touching up rather than washing the paint.
Exterior
All exterior painting is considered a common area item and is controlled and maintained by your
strata corporation and property manager.
Touch-Up
When doing paint touch-ups, use a small brush, applying paint only to the damaged spot. Touchups may not match the surrounding area exactly, even if the same paint mix is used. When it is
time to repaint a room, prepare the wall surfaces first by cleaning with a mild soap and water
mixture or a reliable cleaning product.
Page 60 of 100
Please turn to the “Finish Specifications” section of this Manual for details regarding original paint
colours.
Initial Orientation and Warranty Guidelines
During your initial orientation, we will confirm that all painted or stained surfaces are in acceptable
condition. The “5 foot, 2 second” rule will apply. Briefly, the “5 foot, 2 second” rule states that a
paint deficiency will only be repaired if you can see same from a standing distance of 5 feet and
within a time frame of 2 seconds. If not, it is not a defect.
The Developer will touch up paint as indicated on the initial orientation list. You are responsible for
all subsequent touch-up, except painting we perform as part of another warranty repair. Please
note that paint touch ups made during a warranty visit may:
• Be visible under certain lighting conditions; and
• Not match the surrounding area. Over time, paint colours fade. Due to the effects of time
on paint, as well as possible dye lot variations, touch-ups are unlikely to match surrounding
painted areas).
A copy of the sub-contractor warranty has been included in your Welcome Package. It is titled
“New York Paint and Coating Warranty”.
Phone/Cable Outlets
Homeowner Use and Maintenance Guidelines
Your home is equipped with numerous outlets. Initiating service, adding additional outlets or
revising outlet locations for decorating purposes or convenience is the homeowner’s
responsibility.
Initial Orientation and Warranty Guidelines
The Developer will correct faulty outlets that are discovered during the initial orientation. For
example, if a kitchen phone outlet is positioned too close to a cabinet and prevents a wall phone
from being installed, the Developer will remedy same.
The Developer will also repair faulty wiring from the outlet service box into the home. The
warranty period for same is two years, and begins on the closing date when the unit is first sold.
From the service box outward, care of the wiring is the responsibility of the local telephone service
company.
Plumbing
Homeowner Use and Maintenance Guidelines
Your plumbing system has many parts, most of which require little maintenance. Proper cleaning,
occasional minor attention, and preventive care will assure many years of good service from this
system.
Aerators
Even though your plumbing lines have been flushed to remove dirt and foreign matter, small
amounts of minerals may enter the line. Aerators on the faucets strain much of this from your
water. Minerals caught in these aerators may cause the faucets to drip because washers wear
more rapidly when they come in contact with foreign matter. Please note that as part of normal
maintenance, you will need to occasionally clean your aerator.
Page 61 of 100
Cleaning
Follow manufacturer's directions for cleaning fixtures. Avoid abrasive cleansers. They remove the
shiny finish and leave behind a porous surface that is difficult to keep clean. Clean plumbing
fixtures with a soft sponge and soapy water (a nonabrasive cleaner or a liquid detergent is usually
recommended by manufacturers). Then polish the fixtures with a dry cloth to prevent water spots.
Clogs
Many plumbing clogs are caused when foreign materials are inserted into plumbing lines.
Examples of foreign materials include disposable diapers, excessive amounts of toilet paper,
sanitary supplies, q-tips, dental floss, and children's toys. Improper garbage disposal use also
causes many plumbing clogs. Always use plenty of cold water when running the disposal. Allow
the water to run 10 to 15 seconds after shutting off the disposal. You can usually clear clogged
traps with a plumber's helper (plunger). If you use chemical agents, follow directions carefully to
avoid personal injury or damage to the fixtures. Waste materials, including grease, fat and
petroleum products, should never be disposed of via the plumbing system. These materials
will accumulate in the piping, especially in the p-traps, and can significantly reduce the flow of
water through the waste system. These substances are also very detrimental to the municipal
sewage treatment systems. To clean a drain stopper (usually found in bathroom sinks), loosen
the nut under the sink at the back, pull out the rod attached to the plunger and lift the stopper.
Clean and return the mechanism to its original position.
Low Flush Toilets
Due to conservation efforts and by-law regulations, today’s toilets use less water. In fact, today’s
toilets use 2/3 less water than the old standard toilets. As a result, flushing twice is occasionally
necessary to completely empty the toilet bowl. Rest assured, even when you flush twice, you are
saving water and complying with the law.
Low flush toilets may clog more easily. As such, it is recommended that you do not dispose of
large volumes of paper or any feminine products in the toilet.
Water Flow Restrictors
Water flow restrictors are manufactured into most faucets and all showerheads and cannot be
removed. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
Dripping Faucet
You can repair a dripping faucet by shutting off the water at the valve directly under the sink, then
removing the faucet stem, changing the washer, and reinstalling the faucet stem. The showerhead
is repaired the same way. Replace the washer with another of the same type and size. You can
minimize the frequency of this repair by remembering not to turn faucets off with excessive force.
Please note that some manufacturers do not use rubber washers.
Extended Absence
If you plan to be away for an extended period, you should shut off the main water supply to your
home. The main shutoff is located behind the shutoff panel, which will be pointed out to you on
your initial orientation. Do not shut off the heating valve.
Freezing Pipes
Provided the home is heated at a normal level, pipes should not freeze at temperatures above
18°C.
Leaks
If a major plumbing leak occurs, the first step is to turn off the supply of water to the area involved.
This may mean shutting off the water to the entire home. Then contact the strata corporation or
your property manager.
Page 62 of 100
Main Shut-Off
The water supply to your home can be shut-off entirely at your main shutoff valve. We will point
out the location during your initial orientation.
Porcelain
You can damage porcelain enamel by either scratching or hitting it. Do not stand in the bathtub
wearing shoes unless you have placed a protective layer of newspaper/plastic over the bottom of
the tub. If you splatter paint onto the porcelain enamel surfaces during redecorating, wipe it up
immediately. If a spot dries before you notice it, use a recommended solvent.
Running Toilet
To stop running water, check the shut-off float in the tank. You will most likely find it has lifted too
high in the tank, preventing the valve from shutting off completely. In this case, gently bend the
float rod down until it stops the water at the correct level. The float should be free and not rub the
side of the tank or any other parts. Also check the chain on the flush handle. If it is too tight, it will
prevent the rubber stopper at the bottom of the tank from sealing, resulting in running water.
Shower Diverter
The shower must be turned off using the shower handle – not the diverter.
Shut-Offs
Each toilet has a shut-off on the water line under the tank. Hot and cold shut-offs for each sink are
on the water lines under the sink.
Stainless Steel
Clean stainless steel sinks with soap and water to preserve their luster. Avoid using abrasive
cleaners or steel wool pads, as these will damage the finish. Prevent bleach from coming into
prolonged contact with the sink as it can pit the surface. An occasional cleaning with a good
stainless steel cleaner will enhance the finish. Rub in the direction of the polish or grain lines and
dry the sink to prevent water spots.
Avoid leaving produce on a stainless steel surface, since prolonged contact can stain the finish.
Also avoid using the sink as a cutting board; sharp knives will gouge the finish.
Local water conditions affect the appearance of stainless steel. A white film can develop on the
sink if you have over-softened water or water with a high concentration of minerals. In hard water
areas, a brown surface stain can form appearing like rust.
Tank Care
Avoid exposing the toilet to blows from sharp or heavy objects, which can cause chipping or
cracking. Avoid abnormal pressures against the sides of the tank. It is possible to crack the tank at
the points where it is attached to the bowl.
Temperature
Expect temperatures to vary if water is used in more than one location in the home at the exact
same time.

Troubleshooting Tips: Plumbing
No Water Anywhere In the Home
Before calling for service, check to confirm that the:
• Main shut off in your home is open.
• Main shut off to the building is open.
• Individual shut-offs for each water-using item are open.
Leak Involving One Sink, Tub, or Toilet
• Confirm shower door or tub enclosure was properly closed.
• Turn water supply off to that item.
• Use other facilities in your home and report problem on next business day.
Back Up At One Toilet
If only one toilet is affected, corrections can be carried out during normal business hours.
• Shut off the water supply to the toilet involved.
• Use a plunger to clear the blockage.
• If you've been in your home fewer than 30 days, contact the Developer’s Customer
Service Department (turn to “Contact Information” tab).
• If you've been in your home over 30 days, contact a repair service. You will be responsible
for the cost.
Initial Orientation and Warranty Guidelines
During the initial orientation, we will confirm that all plumbing fixtures are in acceptable condition
and are functioning properly, and that all faucets and drains operate freely. We will repair
deficiencies as follows:
Broken Shower Diverter
The Developer will not replace a diverter that has been damaged by a homeowner.
Clogged Drain
The Developer will correct clogged drains that occur within 30 days of the initial sale. If we are
called to a suite to repair a clog that has been caused by the homeowner, we will bill the
homeowner for the cost of removing the clog! Please note this includes toilet and sink
clogs caused by the homeowner!!! After the first 30 days, the homeowner is responsible for
correcting clogged drains, at his/her cost.
Cosmetic Damage
The Developer will correct any fixture damage noted during the initial orientation. Repairing chips,
scratches, or other surface damage noted subsequent to the initial orientation is your
responsibility.
Leaks
The Developer will repair leaks in the plumbing system that occur within the two-year warranty
period. The warranty begins on the closing date when the unit is first sold. If a plumbing leak
caused by a warranted item results in drywall or floor covering damage, we will repair or replace
items that were part of the home as originally purchased. We do not make adjustments for
secondary damages (for example, damage to wallpaper, drapes, and personal belongings).
Insurance should cover these items.
Page 64 of 100
Noise
Changes in temperature or the flow of the water itself will cause some noise in the pipes. This is
normal and requires no repair. We will repair persistent water hammer that occurs within the first
two years of the warranty. Again, the warranty begins on the closing date when the unit is first
sold.
Remote Controls
Homeowner Use and Maintenance Guidelines
When you move in, you will be given two radio frequency remotes that control access to your
main lobby entry door, your parkade gates and any other door with card access readers.
The remotes require no maintenance, and operate on batteries which will require replacement
from time to time (please refer to the “Alarm Pre-Wiring, Residential RF’s, Visitor Intercom
System, and Camera System” subsection for battery details). The remote controls are susceptible
to damage by moisture and impact, and should be handled gently. We have included a copy of
the “K-TX (HID), K_INTX (Indala) RF Transmitters” brochure in your Welcome Package.
Initial Orientation and Warranty Guidelines
During the initial orientation, we will confirm that the remote controls are in good operating
condition. For warranty information, please review the “Important Keyscan limited Warranty
Information - Wireless Transmitters” document that was included in your Welcome Package.
Shower Doors, Frameless Shower Doors and Tub Enclosures
Homeowner Use and Maintenance Guidelines
For shower enclosure maintenance guidelines, please refer to the “Glass World Maintenance
Guide”. This guide was included in your Welcome Package.
Tub enclosures require minimal care and maintenance. Use a squeegee to remove water after a
bath/shower to keep mineral residue and soap film to a minimum. A coating of wax can also help
prevent build up of minerals and soap. Use cleaning products suggested by the manufacturer to
avoid any damage to the trim and hardware. Check and touch-up caulking on an as needed
basis.
Avoid hanging wet towels on corners of doors - the weight can pull the door out of alignment and
cause it to leak.
Many of the Donovan homes feature “frameless shower doors”. Frameless shower doors apply to
a heavy (3/8” or ½”) glass shower enclosure that may be constructed using glass clips, continuous
glass channels or simply silicone sealed to adjacent surfaces. These glass panels may be
freestanding resting on a tiled curb, floor or bathtub / manufactured shower base. The glass
panels may also be full height fixed to the ceiling as opposed to freestanding.
Although the design is stunning, water may escape at the door perimeter. Care should
therefore be taken to ensure not only that bath mats are present, but also that any water
outside the enclosure is mopped up after a shower.
Initial Orientation and Warranty Guidelines
During your initial orientation, we will confirm that all shower doors and tub enclosures are in
acceptable condition.
Page 65 of 100
For warranty information on the shower enclosures, please review the “Glass World Warranty”
that was included in your Welcome Package. Also refer to the “Glass World Warranty Disclaimer
on Shower Doors”. Although Glass World warrants that water should not escape past glass
channels, or silicone perimeter glass panel seals to adjacent surfaces, it does not warrant
that water will not escape at the door perimeter of a frameless shower.
Smoke Detectors
Homeowner Use and Maintenance Guidelines
Each home is equipped with smoke detectors. Smoke detectors are installed in accordance with
building codes, which dictate locations. The Developer cannot omit any smoke detectors, and you
should not remove or disable same. The number of detectors per home depends upon the size of
the home.
Testing your smoke detector is very important. The homeowner should:
a. Test the smoke detector once a month;
b. Hold the test button on the detector for 10 seconds to ensure that the device beeps or rings
loudly;
c. Avoid lighting candles under the detector to see if the alarm goes off. Repeated use of
smoke to activate can case detectors to fail when a real fire occurs;
d. If applicable, change the batteries at least twice a year – at the start and end of daylight
savings time is a good rule of thumb (also, if your smoke detector starts chirping or beeping,
it’s time to change the batteries); and
e. Clean the smoke detector twice a year with a vacuum.
Please remember, if your smoke detector goes off, you literally have seconds to respond. There
is absolutely no time to gather possessions. Your best response is to leave your home
immediately and call 911 from a phone outside your home.
Your home may be equipped with common area fire alarm strobe lights that are controlled and
maintained by the strata corporation and/or property management company. If so, they may be
connected to the main fire alarm system and should never be obstructed or tampered with.
Please contact your strata property manager to confirm same.
Thermostat
Your thermostat is a Honeywell TH2110D. The operating manual was included in your Welcome
Package. Your thermostat is programmable. Please familiarize yourself with the operation and
programming of your thermostat, as warranty does not cover improper operation or improper
setting of your thermostat. If you require further assistance please call Honeywell’s customer
service at 1 800 468-1502.
Ventilation
Homeowner Use and Maintenance Guidelines
Homes today are built more tightly than ever. This saves energy dollars, but creates a potential
concern: humidity. Humidity is generated by people breathing, bathing, cooking and living in
homes. Humidity must be ventilated to the outdoors; otherwise, condensation, cooking odours,
indoor pollutants, and carbon monoxide may accumulate indoors. We provide mechanical and
passive methods for ventilating homes; however, your attention to ventilation is equally important
Page 66 of 100
to your family’s health and safety. Please take the time to review the following recommended
daily living habits – adopting these habits will reduce humidity by improving ventilation.
Daily Habits
Your daily habits can help keep your home well ventilated. Please:
• Do not cover or interfere in any way with the fresh air supply to your suite;
• Keep the dryer exhaust hose clean and securely connected;
• Keep the dryer lint trap clean;
• Do not interfere with the dryer booster fan. Where applicable, there may also be a
booster fan disconnect switch (located beside/adjacent your dryer). If installed, do
not turn it off.
Failure to follow these instructions will void your entire home
warranty;
• Develop the habit of running the hood fan when you are cooking;
• Run you bathroom fan(s) when taking a shower or bath. Continue running the fan(s) for
approximately 1 hour following your shower or bath. Failure to follow this instruction will
void your home warranty;
• Do not tamper with the main bathroom fan timer. It is wired to run a total of 8 hours each
day. Tampering with same will void your home warranty;
• Leave several windows slightly open during spring, summer, fall and winter. This will allow
humidity to escape (we have found that the fan alone does not lower humidity enough
during the wet, cold winter). This will also prevent excessive moisture from forming on the
inside of your windows. Keeping windows slightly open throughout the year will help:
a. Keep the air in your suite fresh;
b. Prevent damage to your possessions; and
c. Prevent damage to your suite.
• Avoid setting your thermostat at extreme temperatures. Heating your home will cause the
materials to dry out faster, generating more moisture into the air. Drying materials out too
fast also increases shrinkage cracks and separations
Examples of humidity damage are:
• Mold growing on window frames, drywall and other surfaces (very unhealthy!);
• Cords on the window blinds swelling, making the blinds hard to operate and likely to break;
and
• Water filling the bottom window track and damaging the drywall and wood sill beside it.
If your windows are fogged up or wet on the inside, you are damaging your home.
Warranty Guidelines
The Developer’s warranty guidelines for active components, such as exhaust fans, are discussed
under the appropriate headings (electrical systems, heating system, and so on). Please review
these sections for more information regarding same.
Damage caused by humidity is not covered by a home warranty. If the homeowner fails to
follow the recommendations noted above, he/she will cause damage to the home - for
which the homeowner will be held accountable! Further, in several instances, failure to
comply with the recommended daily living habits will render the Developer’s entire
warranty null and void.
Windows
Homeowner Use and Maintenance Guidelines
Contact either the building manager or the property management company if a suite window
breaks. They will be able to assist you in remedying same (accidental breakage may be covered
Page 67 of 100
by the strata building insurance). Please refer to the “Emergency Contacts” section of this Manual
for building/property manager phone numbers.
To care for your windows, please review the following:
Vinyl, if applicable
Clean vinyl surfaces with warm, clear water. Do not use powdered cleaner. After each cleaning,
apply a silicone lubricant. Clean glass as needed with vinegar and water, a commercial glass
cleaner, or the product recommended by the window manufacturer.
Condensation
Condensation on interior surfaces of the window and frame is the result of high humidity within the
home and low outside temperatures. Your family’s lifestyle controls the humidity level within your
home. If your home includes a humidifier, closely observe the manufacturer's directions for its use.
You may also review the sections on “Ventilation” and “Condensation” (see table of contents) for
tips on reducing in-suite condensation.
Sills
Window sills in your home are made of ultra lite. The most common maintenance activity is
dusting. Twice a year, check caulking and touch-up as needed. Protect sills from moisture. If you
arrange plants on a sill, include a plastic tray under the pot.
Sticking Windows
Most sliding windows (both vertical and horizontal) are designed for a 10-pound pull. If sticking
occurs or excessive pressure is required to open or close a window, apply a silicone lubricant.
This is available at hardware stores. Avoid petroleum-based products.
Tinting
Applying tinting and/or foil lining to dual pane windows can result in broken windows due to heat
build-up. Some manufacturers void their warranty on the windows if you apply tinting or foil lining.
Contact the manufacturer to check on their current policy before you apply such coatings.
Weep Holes
In heavy rains, water may collect in the bottom channel of window frames. Weep holes are
provided to allow excess water to escape to the outside. Keep the bottom window channels and
weep holes free of dirt and debris.
Initial Orientation and Warranty Guidelines
We will confirm that all windows are in acceptable condition during the initial orientation. We will
also confirm that windows operate with reasonable ease, and that locks perform as designed.
The Developer will repair or replace broken windows noted on the initial orientation list. The
Developer will also make adjustments to windows and locks that do not function as intended
during the initial orientation. In addition:
Condensation
Condensation that accumulates between the panes of glass in dual-glazed windows indicates a
broken seal. We will replace the window if this occurs during the warranty period.
Condensation that accumulates on the surface of interior windows and frames is not covered by
warranty. This condensation indicates high humidity in the home, and low temperatures outside
the home. As the homeowner influences the level of humidity within the home, the homeowner will
be responsible for damage arising from same.
Page 68 of 100
Scratches
The Developer confirms that all window glass is in acceptable condition at the initial orientation.
Minor scratches on windows can result from delivery, handling, and other construction activities.
We will replace windows that have scratches readily visible from a distance of 4 feet (if same is
noted during the initial orientation). The Developer does not replace windows that have scratches
visible only under certain lighting conditions.

Access and Security
When you received your Welcome Package, you were handed 2 suites keys and 2 radio
frequency remotes (“RF remote(s)”). The RF remotes will open your parkade gates, and any door
where there is a card reader. For example, you must use your RF remote to access the floor to
your suite, the amenity areas and the underground parkade. The only floor that will not require a
RF remote is the elevator access to the ground floor. As the ground floor is always accessible
from the elevator, your visitors do not need to be walked out of the building when they leave.
Each time you use your RF remote to access the building, your transaction will be monitored via a
computer. If you lose an RF, please report it immediately to your resident/building manager; the
manager will delete it from the system, thereby maintaining the security of the building.
Visitor Intercom System
A visitor intercom has been installed outside the main lobby entry, outside the rear lobby entry, on
parkade entry ramp kiosk and in the P1 level of the parkade. Owners may prescreen visitors via
television channels 116 analog or 399 digital. The intercom system operates when a telephone
is plugged into a phone wall jack. An active telephone line is not required. Your guest simply
Page 98 of 100
dials your code or selects your name by scrolling through the electronic directory on the lobby
panel. Please note random codes, which do not identify your apartment, have been chosen for
security reasons. Once the code/name is dialed, your telephone will ring. When you answer, you
will be communicating with your guest. To unlock a lobby door/parkade gate, hit the digit “9” on
your telephone. To refuse entry, simply hang up. When you unlock the door, the elevator cabs
will be released to allow the visitor to get to your floor. The visitor has approximately two minutes
to reach the elevator, and enter their floor destination.
If you have “call waiting” feature on your phone, and are engaged in a telephone conversation
when a guest dials your code, a distinct tone will be heard. Flash the hook switch to answer the
call. This action will automatically put your outside line “on hold”. While on line, you can open the
door by hitting the digit “9”, or flash the hook switch to refuse entry. Both actions will
automatically reconnect you to the previous “on hold” caller to continue your conversation.
For guests requiring visitor parking, a visitor intercom system has been installed both at the
parking entry ramp and on the P1 parkade level. Simply instruct your guest to proceed to the
parkade ramp, and select your name or code at the electronic directory. You can open the
parkade door by hitting the digit “9” on your phone. Once your guest is parked, they should
proceed to the P1 elevator lobby door. Again, your guest will select your name or code at the
electronic directory. Once you hit the digit “9”, your guest will be permitted into the P1 elevator
lobby. From there, your guest will have two minutes to enter the elevator and proceed to your
floor.
Camera System
Two pinhole and six dome security cameras have been installed on the site. The cameras have
been installed at the following locations:
Main front lobby pointing at the front doors
Rear main floor lobby pinhole camera in SES Enterphone
Inside main parkade gate pointing at the gate
Inside Inner residential gate point at the gate
P1 pinhole camera in the visitor SES Enterphone
Rear loading bay
Games room
Gym
Owners can view security camera information on channel 116 analog, or 399 digital. A DVR will
record all information on the security cameras. When the DVR is full (160 giga bites or
approximately 3 weeks of information), it will record over the most dated information.
Alarm System
Alarms have been installed in the Donovan penthouses (level 20), the sub-penthouses (level 19)
and the townhomes. To activate monitoring, you need to contact a monitoring company. The
cost of monitoring shall be borne by the homeowner. Please remember to test your alarm on a
regular basis – once a month is a good rule of thumb.
For all other units, we have included an alarm installation/monitoring quotation in your Welcome
Package. It is titled “D&L Security Systems Ltd Alarm Quotation”.
All installation/monitoring
costs shall be borne by the homeowner.
The Developer makes no representation that an alarm system will provide the protection for which
it is installed or intended.
