Transparent Financials and the Cost of Building in Canada

When talking about the cost of building a home in Canada, the most common way to describe it is by using “price per square foot”. But remember that this number can be deceptively misused. As you compare builder’s cost per square foot, do a thorough investigation to make sure you are comparing apples to apples.  It is too easy to fool the trusting and unsuspecting homeowner who has not built before.

When you’re spending around $1 million on a new home, you want to see exactly where your money is going. This is why Clay Construction considers transparent financials a critical service to provide for their clients. We want you to know exactly where every nickel of your costs is going.

We provide you with detailed estimates, budgets, and invoices that show you where we expect the costs to be and where the costs might differ from the budget. Every week we’ll send you a balance report so that you can see what is being spent and where. And when we provide you with your digital homeowner’s manual at the end of the journey, you’ll see all the building information like photos, plans, and inspection on one flashdrive.

Transparency is key to building trust. Clay Construction wants you to be able to trust us and know that we are spending your money wisely to build you the home of your dreams. We want you to know that your hard-earned money isn’t being wasted on items that you didn’t want, don’t need, or can’t afford. When you have a thorough understanding of the costs related to your new home, you can relax and enjoy the home building process.

So meet with Clay Construction staff  and we’ll walk you through the first steps of the estimate and the building process eventually leading you to your beautiful new home.
