Established in 1987, Quality Homes has been in business for over 30 years, and has built thousands of custom homes and cottages across Ontario.
Quality Homes is a custom homebuilder that builds homes across Ontario. Every home is built inside our production facility in Kenilworth, Ontario and then transported directly to your lot.
No. Quality Homes builds each home individually and to our customers’ specific requirements. We build your home, your way, on a lot of your choosing.
Absolutely not. Quality Homes is a custom homebuilder that offers all of the selections (and more) that you would expect from any custom builder. We offer an extensive choice of exterior options including brick and stone, and interior custom options – everything from hardwood, ceramics, carpet and high ceilings – to fine cabinets and custom decor details. You always have the option of using one of our home plans, modifying it or working with us to design a completely custom home just for you. At Quality Homes you have unlimited options.
No. Our homes are not sold off the shelf as kits. Quality Homes provides a complete home, which also includes a foundation. We offer turnkey services under one roof 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. But our Homeowner’s Ultimate Guarantee (HUG) program guarantees the initially agreed upon completion date. Should we not deliver your home on time, we will pay you $250 per day for each day we are late.
You are responsible for providing a lot, 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 challenge that arises.
No. Quality Homes includes a full-height, poured concrete foundation as part of your home’s standard 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.
