We provide our customers with a variety of practical building options. This gives you the flexibility you need in structuring a working relationship with us that makes sense. A number of clients like to act as the general contractor but may need project management services in certain technical areas of construction. Some want a qualified general contractor to build the structure of the home to the lock-up stage and then complete the interior finishing on their own. Others want the general contractor to look after the entire project.
By breaking the construction process down into individual steps it becomes easier for homeowners to understand. This way you can plan step-by-step and make informed decisions on what you want to build and what resources you need to assemble.
Building a custom home successfully requires attention to detail and a good understanding of the construction process. There are many tasks to be completed which require management and skilled people to fulfill them. This is why most homeowners agree that it is safer to hire building professionals to complete their projects.
There are many design possibilities and thousands of building components with different performance characteristics to choose from. Whistler Home Builders can access all the resources you need to get your new home project completed as well as help you select the right design and combination of materials.
A well-designed addition to your home takes thorough planning. Your addition should not only consider lifestyle needs, but also increase the value of your property by more than the construction cost. Structural changes resulting from your addition may give you a chance to improve other outdated components.
Whistler Home Builders uses up-to-date, energy-efficient construction practices. Home additions often require changes or upgrades to air handling equipment to improve moisture control and air quality in the house. The objective is to increase the comfort as well as the function and size of the home.
Many additions will require a building permit, particularly when the external footprint of the home is increased. Whistler Home Builders has access to professional designers who can take your ideas and prepare blueprints that will meet structural and permitting requirements.
Whistler Home Builders can help you make sure that your addition is structurally sound, meets your living requirements and looks like an integral part of the existing home.
Construction techniques for new homes have changed rapidly. Most of these improved techniques also apply to renovations. This is why it is important to select the right materials and professional builders, just as if you were building a new home.
Whistler Home Builders can help you plan ahead before the actual renovation takes place. The idea is to make it look better, work better, last longer and be more comfortable. Before renovating, it's important to assess the condition of your home to determine if there are any significant underlying problems that must be addressed before or during your planned renovation project. Consideration should be given to:
A professional renovation makes your home more attractive as well as safer, more efficient and more durable. We can give you a realistic estimate and perform the work to meet building codes. We can also help you access professional designers if required.

Whistler Home Builders has many years of experience in the Whistler area, which allows us to successfully complete any complex home construction project. Our customers have relied on our expertise to build a new home or make a major addition to their existing home.
Construction is largely a sequential process. A variety of professional resources with a wide range of expertise is needed to complete a project successfully. They need to be available at the right time and be able to work together at different stages of the project. For example, when building components or manpower is not available at the jobsite when needed, it will cause delays. Whistler Home Builders has the expertise to make the construction process go more smoothly and efficiently.
Shortcuts on material and labor will affect the outcome of the entire project. The cost to fix problems caused by the use of substandard materials or incorrect application can be substantial. Using the right materials and hiring the right expertise means a much better finished result and more value in your home.
Some of the more crucial areas where expertise is needed include:
In the construction of custom homes and major additions, all projects have different challenges. Whistler Home Builders understands that the key to a successful outcome is to finalize your design and select the right materials before work starts.
Working with Whistler Home Builders gives you the confidence that your project will go smoothly.
Your choices of design, materials and construction method play a major role in the look and feel of the finished home. There are many ways to combine different construction types with design and material that creates the perfect home for you. Some may choose spacious open plan living, abundance of natural light and the ambiance of natural timbers while others prefer more traditional and easier to build structures.
Different construction methods will be required depending on the type of structure selected for the home. Conventional framing is the most common option. More complex homes may involve the use of post and beam, timber-frame or log structural components. In some cases, these components may be combined with a conventional frame to get a more cost-effective result.
Building different types of homes takes special skill sets. Whistler Home Builders uses the best construction practices no matter what design and structural materials are selected. We recommend the use of higher quality materials as they give a better finished result, reduce labor costs during the building process and minimize waste.
