I feel so lucky I stumbled across Nicks Developments. I contacted him to ask about the process of custom home building and pricing. On that call I told him we haven’t sold our current house yet. The same day, he came over to look at our house and gave a quote for the work that he thought needed to be done. I am so pleased with the renovations he did to get our house ready to sell. To my surprise he has a real estate team as well which has made this whole process so easy only having to deal with one person. He really worked hard to make sure we were happy. (We definitely are, our house went way above asking!)Nick will be building our new home and I’ll leave an updated review. I’m so excited to see the finished product. He really is a one stop shop!You can tell it’s very important to him that his customers are happy. He’s the best.

I found Nick’s developments back in 2018, when looking for a custom home builder. I have never worked with someone with so much attention to detail and integrity when it comes to the quality of work. I have had bad experiences with contractors cutting corners in the past, but my expectations were exceeded by Nick and his team. He answered all my questions along the way, making sure I felt a part of the process, and gave me regular updates on the project. He and his architect really understood my vision and brought it to life! Thank you for the beautiful home Nick!

I decided to hire Nicks Developments upon the recommendation of my colleague who had recently worked with them for bathroom renovation work at his home. I wanted to get a similar job done and thought of hiring them after looking at the neatness of their work. I contacted the team through a phone call to enquire about their availability and they were very prompt in answering the call. Moreover, they also gave a reasonable estimate right on the call. Great services by a great team!

Highly recommended!

We hired Nick for a home renovation including an addition. He is an outstanding contractor who went above and beyond to make sure we were always happy. As a result of his hard work and efficiency the project was completed in a timely manner and we couldn’t be happier with the quality of the work. Nick is dedicated, skilled, very reliable, budget conscious, trustworthy and detail oriented. Everything you would want in a contractor. Thanks to these and other qualities the renovation went very smoothly and was an extremely positive experience for all. We are thrilled with the final product. Nick and all of his tradespeople did a phenomenal job! We highly recommend Nick’s Developments for any project.

FAQ

What is the difference between a custom home and a regular home?

A custom home is different from a regular home in the flexibility and quality that is offered to the owner. Regular homes are limited in options and availability. There may be few options to select the exterior appearance, floor plans, interior finishes etc. There will also be limitations on structural, electrical, plumbing changes etc.

Meanwhile, custom homes have endless possibilities when it comes to the exterior, designing floor plan layouts and everything in between. So how do you begin? Start by discussing with a professional custom home builder to bring your custom home to life.

How to select your custom home builder?

Your custom home builder decision will weigh incredibly heavily on the outcome of your housing project, and as such, it’s critical that you spend time choosing the right one. The right builder will provide you with insights, guidance, and professional stability. From phone interviews, in person meetings, and job site visits, this will give you a better understanding of the workmanship of the builder.
Read on to learn more about how to choose the right custom home builder.

What is the process of building a custom home?

In the first consultation, we work with you to understand your dream home and vision. The next step is to look for the ideal lot. Once we understand what the scope of work is, we can provide an estimated cost. If we’re a good match, we move on to the architectural and designing stages with our team, then you’ll proceed to select finishing materials. Once that’s done, we proceed to the construction phase until the project is complete. Before we deliver the home, it will be nice and tidy for you to move in.

Do custom home builders need professional licenses or warranties?

All our work comes with a standard 5-year warranty and is insured. Our tradesmen are fully licensed and registered with WSIB.

How long does it take to build a custom home in Toronto?

Building a custom home is unique and tailored to each individual’s vision in mind, therefore each project may have a different time period to complete. For instance, a 5,000 sqft home will take approx. 1 year to complete from the day we receive the building permits.

How much does it cost to build a new custom home in the Greater Toronto Area?

Each project is unique and pricing comes from various factors. Our team will work with you to get the most accurate cost estimate for your new home build. We have a large network of suppliers where you’ll receive our trade discount for the most competitive prices for materials and finishes.

Is a new custom home better than a full renovation?

Building a new custom home is not necessarily better than a full renovation. It depends on your lifestyle and the intended use. When it comes to full renovation, consider the history of the home, if there are any structural or major damages, if you have access to old blueprints and think about the resale value of the neighbourhood. On the other hand, there are benefits with home renovations such as the sentimental value, the resale value, and not needing to move.

When it comes to new custom homes, some of the benefits to consider are increasing space, having everything new and under warranty, less maintenance and more options to choose the layout and floor plan that suits your lifestyle.

Whether you’re looking for a new custom home or a full renovation, it’s best to consult with a professional to help guide you and provide better understanding of both processes.

How does the payment process work with NICKS Developments?

Once we receive the deposit, the project will start. For each phase of the project that is completed, we require another set of payment.
