A modular or prefab home is a factory-built home. It is manufactured and constructed indoors in our state-of-the-art production facility and then transported in modules to your lot and completed on-site.
Utilizing specialized equipment, your home is carefully loaded onto air-ride specialty 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 fully finished home including a poured concrete foundation. Add your furniture and appliances and you’re ready to enjoy your new Quality 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 Homeowners have to say!
Quality Homes builds across Central & Southwestern Ontario. Every home is built inside our production facility in Kenilworth, Ontario and then transported directly to your lot. Contact us to see if we build in your area!
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 Design 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 or cottage.
Depending on the complexity of your design, the level of finishes you select and your build location, we see most of our customer’s homes complete in 14 to 16 weeks from issuance of building permit. Our completion date is guaranteed under our unique HUG Program (Homebuyer’s Ultimate Guarantee). Should we not complete your home on time, we will pay you $250 per day for each day we are late.
We have a dedicated Permit Coordinator who is here to assist you with the permit process. We will contact your building department to find out all of the permitting pre-requisites for your lot including applicable site plan and conservation requirements. We will also provide you with a full set of architectural drawings for your application. While this service is complimentary, any building permit fees and development charges payable to your township are for your account.
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 will also assist you with securing a building permit as well as any other challenges that arise.
No. Quality Homes includes a poured concrete foundation as part of your home’s included specifications, which is also included in your purchase price.
We do not build additions. However, we can do auxiliary dwellings or “granny flats” which would be a complete living unit for independent living from the existing dwelling. Please contact us directly for more information.
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 design, the level of finishes you select, your build location, and timing, but we are now seeing most of our customers end up in the $300 per square foot range. Once we have your home designed, we will provide guaranteed pricing that will not vary. No cost over-runs or surprises. 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 the design, level of finishes you select, your build location and timing. 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.
