Building a custom home requires attention to a lot of little details, making the building process an exciting yet large commitment. Choosing the right home builder is key! Below are some tips for selecting your new Calgary custom home builder.

Quality is Essential When Selecting Your Custom Home Builder

When selecting your custom home builder it’s important to verify their attention to quality work. Throughout the entire building process, your Calgary custom home builder should be on top of all the little details. Ways to research the quality of a custom home builder include:

  • Read and watch testimonials: You can check Sunset Home’s reviews here.
  • Browse photo galleries of past projects: Click here for Sunset Home’s project page.
  • Ask to go on a site visit: Don’t be afraid to ask to see an ongoing project to get a hands-on look! Steer clear of an unwillingness to provide references, this may be a red flag.
  • Ask around.

At Sunset Homes, we work with amazing trades who help us build our quality custom homes.

Transparency and Communication are Important in Your Custom Home Build

A strong communication platform is vital when building a custom home. Ensure your Calgary home builder is transparent and uses strong tools to communicate effectively. Your builder should be a trustable guide throughout the entire home-building process.

At Sunset Homes, we use a software called CoConstruct to showcase your project’s budget, schedule, selections and all other important details. This software has a strong messaging system that allows you to remain in communication with us anytime you have a question or comment.

Look for a Custom Home Builder that You Can Work With for Years to Come

Custom home building is like a marriage. A strong relationship between your home builder and yourself ensures a successful project. You will be working with your home builder through design, pre-construction, construction and finally warranty. As you can see building a custom home requires a lengthy relationship with your Calgary custom home builder.

At Sunset Homes, each project is assigned a Project Manager who works one-on-one with you to make your dream home a reality. Your Project Manager will assist you in all aspects of your custom home build or major renovation.

Think Reputation and Experience When Selecting Your Calgary Custom Home Builder

Your Calgary custom home builder should have a great reputation with past clients and a strong network of reliable subcontractors and vendors. Industry experience is important, that way your Calgary custom home builder will have an organized, efficient process.
