Custom home construction involves many complex variables. Making informed decisions on developing a suitable design, selecting the right materials and keeping on budget can be challenging for most clients. Sundre Home Builders can help you with every stage of the building process, including hiring the right subcontractors and trades. We can manage your custom home project from start to finish.
Sundre Home Builders is experienced in working on custom home projects of various types and sizes. Homes have become more complex over the years and building code requirements more stringent. This has affected the timeframe it takes to obtain building permits in the Sundre area.
Many of our customers have found that it is helpful to understand the building process before construction begins. Sundre Home Builders gives you realistic expectations and can help you make informed decisions about what is involved in construction in the following areas:
The cost to complete your home to occupancy will be dependent on the size, location and complexity of the project. The time taken, availability and quality of trades-people used will affect the labor component. The reality is that it is more important to consider the value of work being done than simply choosing trades based on a low hourly rate.
Choosing the right people can save on a lot of labor cost and fixing problems later on. Generally the use of higher quality material gives you a better finished result, less waste and lower maintenance as well as substantial cost savings during construction. Sundre Home Builders uses best construction practices in all of their projects.
A new addition may be just what it takes to accommodate a changing family or special lifestyle needs. You can expand a kitchen, add a bathroom or change your existing home into the home of your dreams. Whatever you have in mind, Sundre Home Builders can help.
As with any construction project, an addition to your home requires careful planning. Before you decide to go ahead with the project, it is important to clearly identify the features you want. Just as important is a thorough inspection of the current structure so that any existing problems can be corrected at the same time.
The key challenge is to make sure that your addition meets your living requirements and looks like an integral part of the existing home. You will likely need help from a professional designer who can take your ideas and prepare blueprints that will meet structural and permitting requirements.
At Sundre Home Builders, we have the experience to assemble the resources needed and perform the work to professional standards.
A professional renovation makes your home more appealing, more efficient and more durable. Sundre Home Builders has the right kind of experience to make you comfortable that your project will be successful. We provide you with realistic estimates and perform the work to meet building code standards. We can also assist you to source experienced designers and prepare blueprints that will meet structural and permitting requirements.
Before renovating, it's important to assess the condition of your home to determine if there are any significant underlying problems that must be addressed before or during your planned renovation. You will need to consider:
Good up-front planning is crucial before you start work to keep costs under control and get the best result. A thorough inspection will help you to assess the condition of your home. Sundre Home Builders can arrange for a professional home inspection for you that assesses signs of deterioration and the possible causes.
Sundre Home Builders can then help you plan your project and make your home look better, last longer and be more comfortable.
Most homeowners require external expertise to take their project from concept to completion. Technical advice and support are often required prior to and during construction. This is especially true if the nature of the property presents construction challenges.
No matter if you are building a new home, renovating an existing one or adding an extension, Sundre Home Builders has access to the building resources required for custom projects.
You get a much better finished result and more value in your home when you use the right materials and hire the right expertise. The cost to fix problems caused by the use of the wrong materials or poor installation can be substantial. Better quality materials and skilled people will pay for themselves during the construction process because building goes faster with fewer problems and less waste.
Critical areas where homeowners need external expertise usually include:
As registered builders with the Alberta Builder Network we have full access to technical experts including designers, drafts-people, engineers and specialty trades. We can also help with choosing materials that perform well in the Sundre area.
Working with Sundre Home Builders you can be confident that your project will come in on time and on budget.
The design you choose will determine what kind of construction method needs to be used to build the home. More complex structures can include elements of post and beam or timber-frame construction combined with conventional framing. Homes can also include solid log rafter systems instead of posts and timbers. This means that different structural techniques are needed to support the roof and floors.
All structures have the advantage of being able to incorporate open plan living, vaulted ceilings and large expanses of glass to maximize the use of natural light. Although they are a little more costly to build than conventional homes, they generally have a much higher appraised value.
Sundre Home Builders can help you determine the right kind of design for your budget. Your choices of design, materials and construction method also play a major role in the look and feel of the finished home.
Building different types of homes takes special skill sets. Sundre Home Builders is capable of building a wide variety of custom homes and uses premium quality building materials to give you a better-finished result.
