The Benefits of a Custom Home


Consistency in Quality

One of the biggest advantages of a custom home is that you have the opportunity to start with a brand new, well-constructed home that meets all current building codes and uses the latest technologies. Unlike an existing home, a custom home is built to your exact specifications, so you can rest assured that everything is brand new and built right from the ground up. This means you won’t have to worry about the lifespan of any of the components used in your new home or what construction techniques were used. Plus, you won’t have to deal with any of the problems that come with renovating an existing home.


Cost Effectiveness


While it may seem counterintuitive, building a custom home from scratch can actually be more cost-effective than a full home renovation. This is especially true when it comes to homes built before 1950. In many cases, it’s easier and more cost-effective to demolish the existing structure and build a brand new home. This is because over time, everything sags and shifts, and trying to fix these issues in an older home can be challenging and expensive. Additionally, when renovating an existing home, you’re really just saving some outside walls and roof framing, which still requires a significant amount of work to bring up to current standards.


Repairing and Reworking vs. Building New

When comparing the task of repairing and reworking an existing home to building a new one, building new comes out on top. With an existing home, you’re essentially doing two jobs: building what you need and fixing what’s already there. In contrast, when building a custom home from scratch, you can build the walls, floors, and roof the way you want them from the beginning, without having to deal with the constraints of an existing structure.


Ultimately, building a custom home can provide better value for your dollar, as it requires less energy consumption to build and run, and provides a better end product for comparable money to what a complete home renovation would cost. While building a new custom home may not always be possible in Toronto, if you have the opportunity, it’s definitely worth considering.
