Wallmark Homes has been building new homes in the Greater Vancouver and Fraser Valley areas for more than 25 years. Their team is dedicated to keeping the Wallmark name synonymous with quality. After all, they don’t just build houses, they build homes. They make the process of building a home easy and enjoyable. Read on to learn more about their custom home building process.
Many people come into the homebuilding process with a rough idea of the type of home they want and an even less developed idea of the type of lot they’d like to live on. Understandably, the process can quickly become overwhelming with all of the small details. Luckily for their clients, Wallmark Homes offers a professional lot search service; you will be paired with one of their experienced realtors who will guide you to find your perfect home site. After selecting your ideal lot, Wallmark will begin the construction process.
First, they’ll take a topographical survey of your home site to ensure the construction process will be carried out smoothly. Site orientation is key, and you’ll want to be sure your new home follows any and all zoning laws and ordinances in the area where your home will be built.
Next, you’ll consult their design team to make any tweaks to your floor plan and home design. Preliminary drawings will help you review any changes; you’ll also get a clearer idea of your expenses during this stage. Once the drawings are approved, blueprints will be produced and submitted for permit requests. You can rest easy at this point knowing you’re locked into your price and Wallmark will take care of all the paperwork.
After the permits are all cleared, you will meet with your project manager to get briefed on Wallmark’s building process, so you can stay up-to-date throughout the construction of your new home. Then you’ll meet with their interior design team to hash out the specifics of the color, style, and finish you want to see in your home.
Your project manager will take you on a guided tour once the electrical and framing portion of your home is complete, where you’ll be able to review room layout, framing, electrical plan, plumbing layout, and structural wiring. You’ll next be consulted about cabinet installation; as the kitchen is one of the most functional and frequently used rooms in your home, Wallmark wants you to make any adjustments to help create your dream home.
Before you move in, you’ll be taken on a quality assurance walk-through where a Wallmark Homes team member will demonstrate any new systems in your home and clarify the warranty and maintenance program they provide. Once this step is complete, you can move in to your new home!
If at any point you have questions or concerns–before construction or after moving in–they will be there to assist you. If you’re ready to take the plunge and go custom, let Wallmark make things easy and allow them to build your new home.
