Why Choose A Teknite Custom Home Over A Pre-Exesting Home?

Benefits of a Custom Home Build

When you have decided it's time for a new home, you can choose to buy a previously owned home or choose to build a Custom Home. (See the difference between custom and semi-custom home here)

There is many advantages to building a custom home. Below are a few examples of why our customers ultimately decided to craft their own custom home design.


One of the most significant benefits of building a custom home is the choices that you get to make. You and the design team can decide on everything from the lot to build on to the flooring, cabinetry, trim, wall coverings, siding, to what materials and colors you want to express yourself with.

No making do with something “close “ to what you wanted as you would with a pre-existing home. You can select everything you want (within budget obviously). This means you can make choices which make the most of your allowed budget.

Express Yourself:

A custom home is a blank canvas waiting to be filled with your personal ideas.  You’ll get a chance to design a home that reflects your taste, personality, and style. For instance, if you have a large collection of art pieces you wish to put on display, you can have specialized lighting, glass shelving and a high ceiling wall to display it. If you prefer an outside morning coffee, you can install a big deck with retractable sliding doors leading to a covered deck area and some amazing outdoor seating. Your limit here is only your imagination. 


Buying a previously existing home often means accepting unusable space that did not fit with your overall plans. This again falls into the category of "making due" with something that might not even make sense to you as for what that space was even originally intended for.
Teknite Homes Inc will help create a space that is functional for you and your family while realizing your vision for your dream home.

When in the designing phase, you can maximize every single room to meet the functional needs that you intend them for. Kitchens are especially important to have everything done just right to match how you use the space. Imagine, every single counter, storage space and plug-in is EXACTLY where you think it should be.

Updated Technologies And Standards:

When building a custom home you have the opportunity to add new technologies to your custom home design such as programmable heating and cooling systems, controlled smart lighting systems, smart home security systems, kitchen appliances that alert you when you are low on coffee creamer and offer meal suggestions based on what is currently in your fridge.

You can choose to use the newest building materials like Tricoya instead of wood. (a wood replacement material that looks and feels exactly like wood but is moisture and decay resistant)

When buying a "cookie cutter" home, most of the building materials are of mid level quality. If you plan to live in your new custom home for a very long time, wouldn't it be to your benefit to have materials used that will last longer than you might choose to stay there?

Warranty And Peace of mind:

The real truth is, when buying a previously owned home, you don’t know what exactly could be wrong with it or its appliances even after a through home inspection. What lurks behind walls and under the house is an unknown. Many items will not have any kind of warranty if something goes wrong soon after the purchase. Building a new home gives you the piece of mind that everything is new and you have a warranty. You can rest easy knowing that you have a long trouble free future ahead.

Budget Control:

Many people believe that building a custom home is much more expensive than buying an existing home. This isn’t necessarily true. When building a custom home, you decide how your new home is constructed within the limits of the budget that you originally set out. You can control the spending limit of every single thing that goes into your custom home, from materials to your unique specialized features.

We will take your budget into consideration during each phase of construction and use it to have the best quality possible.
