A modular or prefab home is a factory built home. It is manufactured and constructed off-site in our state-of-the-art facility and then transported and assembled on-site on your lot.
Utilizing specialized equipment, your home is carefully loaded onto an air-ride speciality trailers and transported to your lot. Our highly skilled delivery team cranes it onto your foundation and installs it in a single day.
There are many advantages of modular construction versus traditional construction. Modular homes offer you a hassle-free experience due to our ability to control materials, labour, superior workmanship, cost and timing within our indoor facility. Things you just don’t get from traditional construction!
Too many amazing features to mention! But in a nutshell, a move-in ready home including foundation. Add your furniture and appliances and you’re ready to enjoy your new home.
Established in 1987, Quality Homes has been in business for over 30 years. We have built over 4000 custom homes and cottages across Ontario. See what our Quality Home Owners have to say!
Quality Homes builds all across Ontario. Every home is built inside our production facility in Kenilworth, Ontario and then transported directly to your lot.
We have launched new communities in select cities and towns across Ontario. An offering that includes lots and move-in ready homes. This is in addition to building custom homes on your land, your way.
Absolutely not. While we have a huge selection of designs in our own collection to choose from, you can modify a plan or work with us to design a completely custom home just for you. Or bring us a design and we will assess building it for you!
No. Our homes are not sold off the shelf as kits. Quality Homes provides a complete home, which includes a foundation. We offer turnkey services under one roof in-house so you only have to deal with one reliable company for the construction of your entire custom home.
The time from start to finish depends on the size and finishing of your home. On average it takes 12 to 16 weeks to build your home – from the day you receive your building permit to the day your home is complete. But, most importantly, our Homeowner’s Ultimate Guarantee (HUG) program guarantees the initially agreed upon completion date. Should we not complete your home on time, we will pay you $250 per day for each day we are late.
You are responsible for providing a lot as well as services such as well and septic (where necessary), and hook-ups to municipal services such as hydro, cable and phone services. Quality Homes can assist you with securing a building permit as well as any other challenges that arise.
No. Quality Homes includes a full-height, poured concrete foundation as part of your home’s included specifications.
In some cases, yes. Quality Homes builds additions on a selective basis. We need to be sure that we have good access to the building site, and that the existing structure is conducive to receiving an addition. We do not do second storey or upper floor additions.
Quality Homes offers a full 10-year extended structural warranty, which is three years longer than Tarion Home Warranty Corporation’s 7-year standard. Quality Homes is registered with the Tarion Home Warranty Corporation. In partnership with Tarion, we guarantee that every Quality home is free from defects in workmanship and materials. Quality Homes has been nominated for the Tarion Award of Excellence.
All new home purchases are subject to HST. However, a 6% rebate up to a maximum of $24,000 may be available on your new home if it is your primary residence. Talk to us. We can help!
Since we are a custom homebuilder, the price per square foot varies depending on your home’s design, finishes and structural items such as deck, porch and garage. Once we have your home designed, we will provide guaranteed pricing that will not vary. You will never find extra charges in a Quality Homes home. The price we quote is the price you will pay. Period.
There are so many options that factor into the pricing of a Quality home. Price is dependant upon things like size, geographic location, design modifications and finishing options. We are happy to give you a price range once we know where you want to build and what type of home you are looking for. Just call us! We’re here to help.
