Custom homes built on time and on budget have been a Horizon hallmark in Victoria for over 25 years. Learn more about what sets us apart.
A Horizon custom home is your vision come to life. It’s based on a process that has taken 25 years to perfect. One that focuses on early collaboration, meticulous planning, quality materials, and precision craftsmanship.
Has your Victoria custom home builder or designer ever told you “Not to worry about that”? We promise to never address your concerns this way. Every question you ask deserves a clear and honest answer. After all, a custom home is a huge financial and emotional investment that lasts a lifetime. That’s why the process deserves respect.
Whether we’re working with your designer, or making a recommendation to someone we have a relationship with, we’ll guide you through the process from start to finish. We’ll explain the various factors that impact different design options, such as limitations of the building site and the cost of constructing a particular design style. This guarantees that you get the home you want and can afford. As a builder, we approach the design stage as part of a comprehensive building process, not as an end unto itself.
Horizon is big enough to tackle a multi-million dollar project, but nimble enough to take on your kitchen renovation. We’re right-sized to your project. We keep a small but resourceful office team to minimize overhead. And six full-time, in-house building crews give us the ability to stay on your project from start to finish. You get intensely personal service without the extra cost of a marble boardroom.
We have a belief that your project is always our first priority. It’s a remarkably simple idea that so many contractors fail to deliver on. We achieve it by assigning a site foreman who is personally responsible for your home from start to finish. They are your direct lines of communication, working on your home everyday, supervising the crew and subcontractors, making sure everything is as it should be.
Your new home warranty coverage includes two years on labour and materials from roof to foundation, as well as the heating/cooling, plumbing and electrical systems in your home (some limits apply). You get five years on the building envelope related to water penetration, and 10 years on structural elements. It’s the strongest construction defect insurance in Canada. And if you ever have any concerns or problems, know that Horizon’s 25 plus years in business means that we will be there for you when you need us most.
