How long will it take to have my home built?

Construction time varies depending on the time of year you order your home – some seasons are busier than others. When we’re busy, we can usually ship your new home in a few months. Time on site to “stitch” your home depends on the model you choose and the size.

What does “Factory-Built” mean?

It means just what it sounds like! Your home is built in our climate-controlled factory in Morewood, Ontario. As much work as possible is completed in your home prior to shipping, including the electrical, plumbing, and ventilation systems. This ensures better quality control and a more intact air barrier than contractors can achieve when they construct a home on the building site.

Is my home covered by warranty?

All Guildcrest homes are covered by a 10-year limited manufacturer’s warranty. Warranties provided on products such as shingles, fixtures and floor coverings are assigned to the homeowner. Guildcrest’s warranty includes ten years of protection against major structural failure, limited protection for electrical, plumbing, heating and ventilation systems, and a comprehensive one-year warranty on all factory work.

How much of my home is “finished”?

As much construction as possible is completed in our climate-controlled factory prior to delivery. This includes most electrical, plumbing and ventilation work, as well as insulation, drywall, and the installation of doors and windows, interior trim, kitchen cabinets and bathroom fixtures. How much is left to do on-site depends in part on your home’s design. Brick or stone cladding, for instance, is completed after delivery. Your Guildcrest sales representative can tell you more.

Can i alter or provide plans?

You may change many aspects of your home’s layout so that it better suits your family. Move an interior wall, remove a wall to combine two rooms, add a sliding door, or even let us build a home based on your own plans: a Guildcrest sales representative can tell you what’s possible.

How much does a Guildcrest home cost?

Modular homes are often more affordable than comparable homes built entirely on-site. The final cost will naturally depend on your home’s style, features and location. Local building requirements may also affect the final cost. A rule of thumb is the larger the home, the lower the cost per square foot. Contact your Guildcrest Representative or one of our Sales Centers for information on pricing.

How steep a roof can I have?

Choose the roof pitch that best suits your dream home. Guildcrest’s unique hinged-roof system allows us to transport homes of any design without worrying about clearance issues.

What am i responsible for at the site?

Please contact your local builder to have more information.

What about shipping and delivery?

Every Guildcrest Representative has an area in which shipping and delivery costs will be included (check with your Representative for their area, or contact Guildcrest for the name of an Authorized Representative near your site). Your home will be shipped on our specially designed flatbed trucks and we’ll arrange for the crane that will offload and assemble the modules.

Say I wanted upgrades such as a thicker sub-floor…

Our minimum Canadian and First Nation specifications reflect our commitment to quality and value in every Guildcrest home. However, we’ll upgrade any of our materials to suit your needs.
