Home Builder FAQ

Does Quality Connect cost me anything?


As a builder, posting your project and colllecting quotes is absolutely free! If you are looking for additional help in putting together a detailed budget and timeline, we charge a one-time fee:

  • $0.50 per square foot for a detailed budget
  • $0.75 per square foot for a detailed budget and timeline
Our trades are charged a one-time fee to bid on your projects and be on site.




How do I know the trades are qualified?


One of the biggest problems builders have is finding the RIGHT trade contractors to work with. Even when you find a contractor through a recommendation, you don't know if they are licensed and have the proper insurance. We check each of our contractors for:

  • WCB Number in good standing
  • Liability insurance
  • References
  • Business license
  • Years in business
Having fully licensed and insured contractors working on your project PROTECTS you from liability in the event of injury, ensures your build is up to current codes and helps with warranty and part of your new home insurance.
We provide peace of mind to the builders so they can focus on managing their project.




How do I know if Quality Connect is the right fit for my custom build?


The builders who can benefit from the site include:

  • New Residential Home
  • New Residential Multi-Family
  • Acreage Development
  • Residential Renovation
  • Basement Development




When I award a job, does that work as a contract?


No, we strongly recommend getting a descriptive contract between builder and trade. A good contract should have a job site address, both parties names, a detailed description of the work being done, payment terms and a warranty. Quality Connect strongly recommends getting a lawyer to look over any contract if you are unsure.




What type of warranty or guarantee does Quality Connect offer?


Quality Connect does not guarantee the work done by the trades. We do what we can to check out the trades, but are not responsible for their work. We are also not responsible for any payment from the builders. Builders are encouraged to do their own background and reference checks on the trades. We check our trades out upon sign up and randomly check for compliance. We rely on builder’s reviews to keep up to date on how our trades are doing.




How much does an average build cost?


The average cost for home builders can be broken down into the following:

  • $200 per square foot for duplex builds
  • $150 per square foot for single family builds
  • $300 per square foot for custom builds




Who owns and operates Quality Connect?


Hi there! I'm Andrew, owner and operator of Quality Connect. I started my building career in Edmonton as a framing carpenter’s helper at 14 and I've been involved in renovations and new home construction for the past 25 years. I studied at Nait, the University of Alberta, and PHIBA where I received my Master Builder training. I've run a framing crew for over a decade and I've been involved in the project management of over 80 new homes and duplexes.
