Homeowner’s Handbook

Use your Homeowner’s Handbook to take inventory of your house or condominium’s systems and equipment to get a clearer picture of their condition, and in turn better plan and schedule maintenance and repair work.

Fact sheets to complete at your own pace

The Homeowner’s Handbook is provided free of charge as a PDF file, so it’s simple to download, save and print.

The guide consists of fact sheets about your home’s various systems and equipment:

  • General information
  • Foundation
  • Exterior cladding
  • Doors and windows
  • Balconies and decks
  • Roofing
  • Mechanical ventilation F
  • ire and electrical safety
  • Plumbing system
  • Heating and air conditioning

Complete the various sections gradually to create a comprehensive checklist of the most important information about your home, its systems and its equipment. Don’t worry about leaving blank spaces; you can fill them in later—if you decide to renovate, for example.

Why keep all this information in one place?

  • By tracking the history of your equipment and appliances, you’ll have a better idea of when to replace them.
  • You’ll be able to prove the condition of your property when the time comes to sell it.
  • You’ll have all relevant information handy when you renew your home insurance policy.
