Life in Alberta’s Heartland has never been more vibrant!

At Abbey Platinum Master Built, we couldn’t be happier to help families create the perfect space for their needs. We also understand that it can often feel a little overwhelming to find the right homebuilder for your project. To help eliminate any confusion and to leave you feeling confident during the construction process, check out our short list of 5 Questions to Ask Prospective Homebuilders below!
1. What Sets Your Building Process Apart?
Regardless of the size and scope of your project, you deserve to know that a builder is capable of making your home as unique as you are. Experienced teams will not only have an expansive portfolio readily on hand, but should be able to identify what sets their process apart from the rest of the crowd.

2. How Do You Keep The Construction Process On Track?
Moving into your new home shouldn’t feel like a hassle. Mismanaged projects and lack of experience can translate into unfortunate (and avoidable) delays for homeowners. Ask potential builders how they keep their crews accountable, as well as what kind of guarantees they are able to offer you when it comes to taking possession.
3. How “Cookie Cutter” Will My Home Be?
As we said above, every family deserves a home that’s as unique as you are. Even if your new build will technically fit into an existing “spec” or design, experienced builders will have plenty of small ways to add custom touches to your home. If there’s a particular area you’d like to have more say in (i.e. kitchens, bathrooms), the interview process is a great time to bring that up as well.
4. How Does My Mortgage Work?
While there are certain regulations that every home builder must abide by, it’s good to know exactly how your prospective contractor handles finances throughout the project as a whole. At Abbey, we believe in making home financing as simple as possible, and will work closely with you to ensure you know exactly what to expect.
5. What Kind of Warranty Do You Offer On Your Work?
Quality matters. You should never have to worry about your homebuilder standing by their work. Inquiring about warranties will give you peace of mind after construction is complete, and help you feel confident in your new home.
Overall, if you’re feeling nervous about building your dream home, the best advice we can give you is this: don’t be! With the right builder, you’ll be in good hands. Asking the questions above will help you find the perfect fit and guarantee a smooth building process!
