In recent years, as in most markets in and near the Greater Toronto Area – Niagara has seen a rise in prices for properties across the spectrum.

The best place to begin your custom home building journey is to consider what style of house you’d like to build as well as how much you’d like to spend. From there, set up a meeting with us and our architect to see what we can build for you.

Parkside Homes builds quality custom homes throughout the Niagara Region including Niagara Falls, Niagara-on-the-Lake, St. Catharines, Fonthill, Welland, Fort Erie, Grimsby, Port Colborne, Thorold and surrounding area. We also service areas outside Niagara including Hamilton, Stoney Creek, Burlington, Oakville and Mississauga.

The average time to build a custom home is anywhere between 5 and 7 months. This of course depends on size and finishings and does not include time on planning, design and obtaining necessary permits.

This is perhaps one of the most common questions we receive as builders of custom homes. Of course, the answer varies depending on a number of factors including: location, finishings, square footage, etc. We can say that the 3 major contributors to price are Exterior Finishings, Flooring, Countertops and Cabinets.

Parkside Homes works closely with one of the best architects in the area. You can choose from a number of designs or start from scratch. The choice is yours.
