Will I get help when I select my colours/finishes?

Yes, we have an interior decorator that helps you choose all your selections. She will make an appointment with you to select all your interior selections a few weeks after the purchase of your new home is accepted and firm.

What is a PDI?

A PDI is a pre-delivery inspection. The PDI takes place within a week prior to closing. The site superintendent will go through the house with you to make sure everything is in pristine condition. For more information about your warranty, please see the Tarion website (www.tarion.com).

Can I make changes to the floor plan?

Yes, you can make changes to the floor plan within 21 days from acceptance of the offer. Our floor plans show different options you can choose from but additional alterations may be possible.

When do I get to go to the design centre?

All purchasers and potential purchasers can visit the Decor Centre. The Decor Centre shows all of our standard interior and exterior features that come with your new home as well as any extras you can choose from.

What kind of landscaping can I expect?

A fully sodded front and back yard is included in your new home. We are also one of the few builders that include a base coat asphalt to complete your brand new home.

What is the overall buying process?

After purchasing your new home, you will have 14 days to decide if you want to make any major changes.
After that you will need to go select your exterior colour package and all your interior selections at our Decor Centre.
If you decide to do any other changes, you will need to have them in before the building permit issued. This is usually 5 to 6 months before your closing date.
After all of your selections have been finalized you will have a rough-in inspection and lastly a PDI to make sure the house is in perfect condition.

Can I see my home during construction?

Due to safety and insurance concerns, we cannot allow you to enter the home while it is under construction unless you are with a Freure Homes Representative. We do offer a rough-in inspection once all the framing, electrical, heating and plumbing rough-ins have been completed. This gives you the chance to see your home before it is drywalled.
