Siena Signature Builders Inc.
Home Builders in Calgary
"We moved into our home in June 2013 and are extremely happy with the outcome. The quality of products and workmanship are top notch and their attention to detail is impressive. They build with passion and integrity, which is not only reflected in the aesthetics of our home but also in features behind the walls. In certain instances they exceeded building code requirements. Siena Signature Builders made the design process easy. They were patient and flexible, allowing us to add our own design touches and they ensured we were educated along the way. Siena included features that make our home functional yet unique so that it stands out from others. They provide excellent customer service, are more than willing to answer our questions and provide timely follow up. We love our home and will continue to recommend Siena Signature Builders!"

Shamrock Mountain Building Ltd.
Home Builders in Calgary
""We have nothing but good things to say about Shamrock. We were in a situation where we needed help to finish up our project and make some renovations along the way. We were having difficulty getting someone who could help us given the relatively small scope of work and small town location for our recreational property. Dale and the team at Shamrock have been nothing short of fantastic for us. They are extremely knowledgeable, which helped them to address all of our needs and offer very realistic solutions for our ideas. We found their work to be very high quality and they have delivered on everything we asked of them. Most importantly they have given us peace of mind that comes when you can trust that everything is being taken care of better than we would have done ourselves. Shamrock went above and beyond and that included taking the time to make sure the kids monkey bars got put up - thanks guys! I would highly recommend Shamrock and feel they would bring value to any construction project." Jeff Marchant, Calgary, AB"

Gold Seal Master Builder
Home Builders in Calgary
"We have worked with Murray at Gold Seal Master Builders for several years now with many if not all of his new home builds. Gold Seal was one of our first builders in Canada that "got it!" He saw how easy our arches and ceilings products were to work with, how quickly he had them on site after ordering and how cost effective they were. I think it's safe to say since day one with Gold Seal Master Builders they have been putting our products in every new project! Murray commented that there are no more "go-backs" for him with out of round arches or flat spots on curves with our products; he doesn't have to waste time and money sending a trade back to fix an arch because ours are perfect every time! Thanks Murray for your ongoing confidence in our product and service!"

What do new home builders do?


For residential home builders who also act as developers, the job starts well before the first nail is driven. They perform local market research to determine whether the prospective homesites make sense in the Calgary market, as well as survey the land on which the house will be built to make sure it is suitable for construction. Custom builders also obtain the necessary permits.

A good custom home builder in Calgary has skills that go far beyond construction — he or she must supervise subcontractors and artisans; keep tabs on local zoning regulations, building codes and other legalities; inspect work for problems along the way; and perform dozens of other roles that are essential in building a quality house. Here are some related professionals and vendors to complement the work of home builders: Interior Designers & Decorators, Landscape Architects & Landscape Designers, Architects & Building Designers, Kitchen & Bath Designers, Specialty Contractors.

House builders are responsible for ensuring that the home-building project sticks as closely as possible to the specified timetable, particularly in the event of change orders. Custom and luxury home builders in Calgary also need interpersonal skills to deal with clients of all types, soothe frazzled nerves, negotiate conflicts and resolve problems.

Questions to ask a prospective custom home builder in Calgary:


  • How long have you been in the home building business?
  • How many projects like mine have you completed?
  • Who will be working on the project?
  • Are the workers employees or subcontractors?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • May I see a current jobsite?
  • Can you give me the addresses of some houses you have built?
  • Are you and your employees licensed and insured?
  • What license(s) do you have?
  • What other training and affiliations do you have?
  • How do you charge, and what does that include?
  • Can you give me a written estimate?
  • What do your services include?
  • How will I be charged for parts and materials?
  • When can your job get done?
  • What is your policy for change orders?
  • What happens when the cost exceeds the budget? What about changes to materials or labor pricing?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any important considerations or concerns you foresee with this project?
