PROPERTY WARRANTIES

At HolaEcuador Property Development, our commitment to you is not only a beautiful home, but also a safe edifice and an investment that you will be proud of for many years.

Our construction service providers in Ecuador are chosen based on our common values of security, reliability, efficiency, precision and integrity.  Here is our service providers’ commitment:

INSURANCE

WHAT OUR PROVIDERS DO:
Before commencing construction of a new home, they obtain a “builder’s risk” insurance policy. Insurance coverage is maintained for the entire construction period. They will return your money in the event of a covered disaster.

IMPACT ON YOUR HOME AND FAMILY:
In case of losses due to, amongst other things, natural disaster, you keep your hard earned money. Many people have unfortunately lost everything because their builder did not have insurance for damages incurred during the April 2016 earthquake.

BUILDING CODES AND SUPERVISION

WHAT OUR PROVIDERS DO:
Our providers adhere to Ecuador’s NEC-2015 building code, which is very strict with regards to ensuring resistant and durable building envelopes. They further enhance the quality with the use of Canadian and internationally accepted building standards for interior finishing, electrical and plumbing requirements, etc.

IMPACT ON YOUR HOME AND FAMILY:
They have full time foremen and experienced, senior site supervisors dedicated to ensure each employee strictly follows the building standards so your home will be safe and resistant.

SEISMIC TESTING

WHAT OUR PROVIDERS DO:
During the design process for any new home configuration, they conduct seismic analyses with advanced computer aided design and analysis tools such as the ETABS software (https://www.csiamerica.com/products/etabs)

IMPACT ON YOUR HOME AND FAMILY:
Prevents major damages in the eventuality of an earthquake.

SOIL TESTING

WHAT OUR PROVIDERS DO:
The key to a long-lasting construction begins with the soil upon which a structure is built. For each home our providers build, they conduct a ground sample analysis (material, compaction). If the soil is not appropriate to support the type of construction requested, we will advise you and suggest valid alternatives.

IMPACT ON YOUR HOME AND FAMILY:
Instead of risking your hard-earned money in a “house of cards”, with HolaEcuador, you can rest assured that we do the maximum to provide you with a safe and durable investment.

FOUNDATION

WHAT OUR PROVIDERS DO:
A home is only as good as its foundation, and this is all the more true in seismically active regions such as Manabí. All of the homes we sell are currently built using tied strip foundations (“zapatas corridas”) over compacted ballast backfill.

IMPACT ON YOUR HOME AND FAMILY:
Prevents structural cracking and other potential damages.
In the event of a future insurance claim, this process proves to an insurance company that everything was done properly and in accordance with required specifications.

HOME FRAME

WHAT OUR PROVIDERS DO:
Rust inhibitors for steel reinforced concrete
Waterproofing admixtures for concrete
Waterproofing membranes
Concrete load bearing capacity compression tests following a specific schedule.

IMPACT ON YOUR HOME AND FAMILY:
Ensures safety, strength and durability of structure and other building components.

ELECTRICITY

WHAT OUR PROVIDERS DO:
Electrical grounding, including the use of GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupt) for outdoor outlets and within 1m of indoor water sources (kitchen, bathroom, etc.)

IMPACT ON YOUR HOME AND FAMILY:
Greatly reduces the risk of electric shock, added fire safety.

GAS LINES

WHAT OUR PROVIDERS DO:
Pressure tested to well above NFPA 54 standards (National Fire Protection Association Standard).

IMPACT ON YOUR HOME AND FAMILY:
Reduces the risk of explosion and related damages.

PLUMBING

WHAT OUR PROVIDERS DO:
Use of stack vents which are not typical in Ecuador but present in all their homes, clean-outs, etc.
Hydraulic pressure test of water lines.

IMPACT ON YOUR HOME AND FAMILY:
Helps fluid evacuation and odor control.
Make sure the plumbing system is properly sealed and has no leaks before you take possession.

GLASS

WHAT OUR PROVIDERS DO:
Standards for laminated and tempered glass for patio doors, large area windows, showers, guard rails, windows in proximity to doors, windows that are close to the ground, etc.

IMPACT ON YOUR HOME AND FAMILY:
Improves temperature control and durability. Also improves resistance to impact and minimises potential injuries in case of accidental breakage of glass.

WARRANTIES

WHAT OUR PROVIDERS DO:
1 year full coverage warranty on interior/exterior finishes, in addition to the legal 10-year warranty on the structure.

IMPACT ON YOUR HOME AND FAMILY:
Warranties on interior/exterior finishes are rarely offered in Ecuador. With HolaEcuador, you have peace of mind!
