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. Galiano 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 new addition may be just what it takes to accommodate a changing family or special lifestyle needs. You can expand a kitchen, add a bathroom or change your existing home into the home of your dreams. Whatever you have in mind, Galiano Home Builders can help.
As with any construction project, an addition to your home requires careful planning. Before you decide to go ahead with the project, it is important to clearly identify the features you want. Just as important is a thorough inspection of the current structure so that any existing problems can be corrected at the same time.
The key challenge is to make sure that your addition meets your living requirements and looks like an integral part of the existing home. You will likely need help from a professional designer who can take your ideas and prepare blueprints that will meet structural and permitting requirements.
At Galiano Home Builders, we have the experience to assemble the resources needed and perform the work to professional standards.
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.
Galiano 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.
Working with Galiano Home Builders gives you the assurance that you are getting someone with experience in the Galiano area.
Most homeowners require external expertise to take their project from concept to completion. Technical advice and support are often required prior to and during construction. This is especially true if the nature of the property presents construction challenges.
No matter if you are building a new home, renovating an existing one or adding an extension, Galiano Home Builders has access to the building resources required for custom projects.
You get a much better finished result and more value in your home when you use the right materials and hire the right expertise. The cost to fix problems caused by the use of the wrong materials or poor installation can be substantial. Better quality materials and skilled people will pay for themselves during the construction process because building goes faster with fewer problems and less waste.
Critical areas where homeowners need external expertise usually include:
As registered builders with the BC Builder Network we have full access to technical experts including designers, drafts-people, engineers and specialty trades. We can also help with choosing materials that perform well in the Galiano area.
Working with Galiano Home Builders you can be confident that your project will come in on time and on budget.
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. Galiano 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.
