Today, the experience of buying a new home is very different than in the past. This is the era of customization. Whether you are buying your first home or finally having your “dream” home built, new home builders provide an incredible range of options and upgrades. The end result is a brand new home that is truly your home.
In order to provide consumers with the best possible new home options, many professional new home builders work closely with leading national manufacturers. The manufacturers provide the builders with complete product packages, including technical support and training for workers, to ensure the most suitable products are used and installation is done correctly.
Your new home builder can help you evaluate various product options and recommend those which offer you solid value in terms of quality, performance, warranty and after sales service.
First, choose products and materials that suit your lifestyle. Your family is unique and so are your new home needs. Whether you have young children, run a home based business or are an active senior, there are product and material choices designed for the way you live.
For instance, extra durable floor finishes make sense for families with young children, while lever handles on doors and bathroom fixtures make life easier for anyone with mobility impairment or arthritic hands.
Second, choose products and materials that offer real value. The lowest price rarely means the best value. Make sure that every product and material you choose is backed by a reputable manufacturer that provides a solid warranty and after sales service. There is nothing more frustrating than an expensive fixture or appliance that can’t be repaired because spare parts are not available.
When you choose brand name products for your home, you benefit from the ongoing research and development investments that leading manufacturers make in developing and improving their products. As well, brand name products meet Canadian standards and can handle our demanding climate. Perhaps of greatest importance, brand name manufacturers provide home buyers with warranty protection and a service network you can count on.
Quality brand name products reduce the risk of the unexpected, like expensive repair or replacement bills. And choosing brand name products can add to the value of your home. So find out about your brand name product and material options. Your builder will help you make the right choices.
