25 Year Structural Guarantee
We guarantee the structural integrity of our homes, no matter who is calling them home.
Whilst we are sure you will spend many years creating memories to last a lifetime with the ultimate level of confidence and peace of mind, if you decide to sell your home within the guarantee period, the new owner will enjoy the same level of assurance received when you built your McDonald Jones home.
It's Home. Made to last.
Peace of Mind
We commit to delivering noticeably higher standards in design and build quality, using only the best materials and finishes in your new home. It's with this quality in mind that McDonald Jones guarantees the structural performance of its frames and slab for 25 years*.
If it comes time to move on from your McDonald Jones home, any subsequent owner can continue to enjoy the same sense of security and peace of mind that you experienced for the remainder of the 25 year guarantee period*.
Whilst we are certain you'll love your McDonald Jones home, perhaps it won't be your 'forever home'. The one thing you can be certain of is that you are building a quality investment for the future. The 25-year structural guarantee* will add to the equity and value of your home if you ever decide to sell.
*Terms of Guarantee
The builder guarantees to the owner that it will rectify at no cost to the owner any structural failure of a steel frame, timber frame, concrete slab or footing erected in accordance with the contract, if a claim for that failure is made within 25 years from the date of practical completion of the works. Structural failure is damage classified as category 3 or higher as defined in Australian Standard 2870. The owner acknowledges that this extended structural guarantee may by voided, at the discretion of the builder, if the structural failure is the result of damage caused by storm, fire, flooding, subsequent building works, trees, retaining walls or site conditions or events outside of the control of the builder including latent conditions, or where loss or damage arises due to a failure by the owner to ensure site maintenance, termite treatments or site drainage requirements, including in accordance with advice from the builder at handover and the CSIRO guide to footing and maintenance.
A successor in title will have the same rights and benefits of the 25 year structural guarantee as the original owner, with the same terms and limitations if within 6 months of becoming the registered owner of the land they notify McDonald Jones Homes via the dedicated notification form at mcdonaldjoneshomes.com.au, produce a receipt of that notification generated by the McDonald Jones website form and provide access for an inspection. That inspection may include an assessment of any actions or omissions of the previous owner, or other causes that may have voided the guarantee.
This extended structural guarantee only applies to homes where a tender acceptance fee has been paid after 1 July 2022 and the original construction contract expressly includes the guarantee.
