How To Certify Your Home
Three Basic Steps to a SAFERhome Certified Home
Step 1. Pre-Registration Form
Complete the pre-registration form for your project and mail it together with your pre-registration payment to the SAFERhome Society. Pre-Registration cost is $50 per home/unit. Alternatively, you can email us your pre-registration form and we will forward an invoice which you can pay online.
To safeguard yourself, add the following clause to your builder’s/developer’s or real estate contract “subject to proof of SAFERhome Standards Certification”.
With your pre-registration we will provide you with a copy of the SAFERhome Standards Manual with the technical details for each criteria of the SAFERhome Standards. We encourage you to contact our knowledgeable staff for help or any questions, Gordon Porter, Executive Director 778.255.2207 or gporter@SAFERhomeSociety.com.
Your pre-registration entitles you to technical and other support you may require to certify your home.
Step 2. Design & Build Your Home / Project
The SAFERhome Standards manual provides all the technical details for each criterion to meet the Standards. The Standards are grouped into three categories – Structural & Design, Electrical & Telecom, and Plumbing.
Step 3. SAFERhome Certified Building Inspection & Certificate
Before the dry-walling stage contact us to make arrangements for our SAFERhome Certified Building Inspectors (ASTTBC) in British Columbia for the inspection. Cost of inspection for each pre-registered home/unit is $149 each
Once you have passed inspection and paid the per unit registration fee, your inspector will register your home/units with the SAFERhome Standards central registry office.
You will receive a SAFERhome Standards certificate and registration number(s) for each unit.
