Kensington Homes has been building safe havens for Winnipeggers for over 45 years.
Throughout that experience, we’ve truly seen it all, and we’ve been able to hone a process that prepares for the unexpected, keeps things moving, and delivers homes on-schedule more often than just about any local competitor.
But one of our major points of focus throughout the years has been the homeowners’ experience. Often times, emotions are high during a new home build, and while people do not have unreasonable expectations for their home builder, they do want to stay informed since it is such a personal and impactful investment.
In recent times, we’ve been able to see the face of homeownership change. There are more and more first-time home buyers visiting our show homes and searching for their families’ home base, and there are more new Canadians putting their trust in us to help them put down roots in a new country.
Because of all this, Kensington has worked out an informative communications process to keep you in-the-know throughout your build. We’ve also come up with an illustrative map to guide you through the home build at a glance – and have added little reminders of responsibilities, check-in points, or third-party involvement that can tinker with timelines along the way.
Over the next month, we’ll be sharing the stages of our home-building process with you, describing each of the steps along the way, and giving you a behind-the-scenes look into the new home-building journey like never before.
Please follow along with us on Facebook and Instagram, ask us questions, and as always, treat us like an open book – from our head office customer service team all the way through to our sales representatives in our show homes.
Read on for more about Kensington’s promise to help you “Own the Build” as a new home buyer.
Own the Build
The homeowner journey starts as soon as you sign an offer with your builder. So why does the new home-building process typically leave you feeling powerless?
At Kensington Homes, we work hard to make you feel empowered and in control of your build. This means more checkpoints and a transparent building process – even naming the things that can cause delays.
Because the construction industry is technical and full of specialized terminology, it’s easier for builders to carry out their responsibilities and leave homeowners in the dark – especially when something as emotionally-charged as a home is on the line. But we know your satisfaction depends on staying informed.
Directing a new home build is like conducting a complicated symphony involving city permitting, multiple inspection points and trades. Everyone must work together to meet deadlines – and we’re proud to say we’ve got a great track record for delivering homes to owners on schedule. But, in the event of a missed milestone, we want to own up to the mishap and honour our promise to keep you in the know throughout the build. We’re not just building any home – we’re building your home – so we treat you like you’re the most important person in the process.
You’ve put your trust behind us to create your safe haven, and we go to work each day committed to earning it.
From the moment you sign an agreement with one of our sales representatives, you not only own a future Kensington home, you Own the Build.
