If you are considering building a custom home in BC, our Langley-based custom home contracting service can help!

But there are a few things we want you to know before you get started on the journey, ensuring you set yourself up for success, while also understanding common pitfalls.

So without further ado…

6 Things to Know When Building a Custom Home in BC

  1. Shop Around. Hiring the right team for the job matters. Every time. From quality to reputation, one is equally as important as the other when ensuring a positive end-result. Investing the time to find the right custom home builder will matter to your budget, your timeline and the dream home you intend to build. The smartest way to avoid a disaster is simply through the vetting process – and we are more than happy to answer your questions to arrive at the right choice for you!
  2. Hire the Trifecta. As discussed on our Custom Homes Page

If you’re ready to customize the house of your dreams, let’s do it together. With our preconstruction package, we will get working with an architect, pull permits and start the whole process for you. We will have you meet with designers, listen to your vision, and then have it all laid out on paper. Our process is simple, easy to follow and fully transparent.

3. Build for the Future. From sustainable and energy-efficient building materials and appliances, to having the foresight to know if you will be needing to house aging parents or offset mortgage costs with a rental unit; building for the future should be an important consideration too and something you will want to be mindful of.


With the cost of living rising and the need for rental space growing, providing a solution for both is something Sayers Contracting can help our community with through our custom suite construction in Abbotsford or the surrounding communities.

Whether you are wanting to build an in-home or adjacent suite for your adult children, your retired parents, or as an income generator – we can help.
