Frequently Asked Questions

A custom home is the ultimate building experience for someone who has unique preferences for their residence. Building a custom home with a professional home builder allows you to decide every aspect of construction from design, to layout, finishes and materials. Meanwhile, a regular home comes with a standard design and doesn’t come with as many options for materials customization.

Hiring a custom home builder takes the stress out of a major home renovation. Your project manager is your main point of contact. They will handle the construction timeline, tradespeople scheduling, and handling feedback from you during the renovation process. Custom home builders are experienced, creative and unafraid to tackle your most complex desires. They also handle all of your permits and zoning queries from the local authorities.

You should interview at least three custom home builders before you make your choice. Have a list of questions prepared and ensure that you feel good chemistry between you and the contractor because you’ll be working together for an extended time. Always ask for references and make sure that your desired company is fully licensed and insured. Talk about your budget with the contractor and ask how they handle unexpected costs and overages. When you’re ready to start building your custom home, contact Lumara Homes. We’ll be happy to help answer all your questions and start the planning process with you.

Yes. Building a home in Ontario is a choice many homeowners make. Doing so allows you to design your home exactly how you want it.

Lumara Homes are exceptional builders in Toronto. We provide superior quality and customer care that cannot be found elsewhere.

While we do not offer direct interior design services, we are more than happy to collaborate with the interior designer of your choice or you may work with one of our preferred designers.

The timeline for building custom homes in Toronto depends on factors like size, complexity, weather, labour availability, and construction efficiency. Typically, obtaining permits and completing the home takes 6-8 months. However, construction of a single-family home in Toronto averages 8-12 months. The initial stages include permits, design, and site preparation. Then, the foundation, framing, roofing, plumbing, electrical work, and insulation are completed. Later stages involve interior finishing like painting, flooring, cabinetry, and fixtures. Inspections and adjustments precede project completion. Unforeseen delays due to weather, labour/material shortages, or design changes can prolong the timeline. Winter/fall builds may experience delays due to ice/snow.

Clients have the flexibility to request design changes during the construction process, but it’s important to consider the implications for the project timeline and cost. These changes, known as change orders, require careful consideration:

Feasibility: Feasibility depends on the construction stage and the extent of the proposed changes. Some modifications are easier to accommodate, while others may require significant adjustments or restarting certain phases.

Communication: Timely communication of desired changes to the builder or contractor is crucial for effective planning and minimizing disruptions.

Timeline Impact: Design changes can affect the construction timeline, requiring additional time for planning, rework, or material procurement. Builders assess the impact and provide an updated timeline.

Cost Implications: Changes may impact project costs, including materials, labour, design fees, or even demolition and reconstruction expenses. Discussing cost implications with the builder helps understand the financial impact.

Documentation: Documenting changes through written change orders ensures clarity on modifications, costs, and timeline adjustments, and potentially minimizes any future disputes.

In Toronto, the Tarion Warranty Corporation, authorized by the Ontario government, governs the standard builder’s warranty under the Ontario New Home Warranties Plan Act. This warranty applies to new homes in Toronto and consists of the following components:

  1. One-Year Warranty: Covers workmanship and material defects for the first year after home completion. Includes electrical, plumbing, heating systems, doors, windows, and caulking.
  2. Two-Year Warranty: Covers major systems like plumbing, electrical, and heating, and provides building envelope protection against water penetration.
  3. Seven-Year Warranty: Covers major structural defects, including load-bearing components, ensuring compliance with the Ontario Building Code requirements.

It’s crucial to note that the builder is responsible for addressing warranted issues during the specified warranty periods. Homeowners should directly contact the builder to report concerns or defects covered by the Tarion warranty. Familiarizing oneself with the specific details and limitations of the Tarion warranty is recommended, as they may vary based on circumstances and home type.

We also provide Lumara Home Care, which is a customized service for maintenance, repairs, and add-ons during the construction process. It includes regular inspections, maintenance of various systems like HVAC, plumbing, and electrical, exterior care, and ensuring home security and safety. Learn more about Lumara Home Care here.

Spring is the most ideal time to build your home, allowing you to make good progress while good weather persists.
