Lately, we’ve noticed a trend with custom home builders in the Niagara Region. There are indeed many incredible builders out there in our industry, and there are also mass project/kit home builders.
It’s important to understand the differences between a luxury custom home and a home labelled as “custom” that is not, and is not of the same quality standards that you’ll receive with a builder such as Homes By Hendriks. Let’s dig in!
Custom Homes in Niagara
It doesn’t matter if you’re in Niagara-on-the-Lake or St. Catharines, or anywhere else. When you’re looking to have a home custom-built for your family: it should be exactly that. Here are some examples of “custom” features that some builders tout, that might not necessarily signal quality:
- Doorknob finish/colours
- Bathroom fixture finish/colours
- Drawer pull finish/colours
- Countertop material and colours
Yes, these items should all be custom, but choosing from a list of 5-10 different options isn’t truly custom. That’s a constrained choice. With Homes by Hendriks, you’re getting the level of experience you deserve when you’re building a truly custom home.
Our trusted home-building process starts with you, your vision, your goals, and your lifestyle. As you progress, we begin to understand the styles you like or don’t, then begin to craft plans around that and the land you’ll be building on.
We connect you to our in-house design team that works with you to bring your full vision to life; with far more attention to detail than just choosing finish colours.
We walk you through design styles, matching your preferences and budgets to the right subcontractors for the job. From custom cabinets to landscaping, we will build the connections you need.
