An EnerGuide rating shows a standard measure of your home’s energy performance. It shows you (and future buyers) exactly how energy efficient your home is. The rating is calculated based on standard operation assumptions so that you can compare the energy performance of one house against another.
Being first time builders, we found Hillson Homes to be very helpful in guiding our decisions as it pertained to fixed price vs. cost plus construction; choices in materials and advances in technology that would provide a greener more efficient home.
Hillson’s recommendation to have weekly on site meetings also aided us in understanding the building process, identifying any potential pitfalls and the ability to make changes without incurring additional costs or additional time.
We have had conversations with a number of people that spoke of cost over runs and disagreements with their builder. Our experience was just the opposite. Hillson proved themselves to be very open and honest so much to the point that if we were ever considering selling our dream home we would not hesitate to build with them again.
Our designer recommended a few builders that he was working with. Hillson quickly separated themselves from the other builders as they didn’t simply quote a price but rather suggested that we meet at a current build site so that they could display their craftsmanship as well as answer any initial questions.

The decision to move to a new home is not easy to make. For several years we had the desire to move but could not find a house that we felt offered the quality and value for the money we wanted in the Calgary market. Fortunately that changed when we toured the nearly completed home that your firm constructed, and we subsequently bought
We would recommend a Hillson built home for various reasons. The first impression we had of the house was the high quality of the materials and workmanship used in the finishing of the home.
We were pleased to learn that Hillson utilizes Built Green principles and materials in their homes and constructs highly energy efficient designs, minimizing waste and being conscious of the environmental impact of new construction.
We were also very impressed with the overall design and efficient use of space in the home compared to others we viewed. Upon further discussions and questioning, it was clear that there was a lot of careful thought and choices made in the design and construction of the home from the mechanical systems to the finishes.
We felt confident in our decision to purchase, as answers to questions posed by the home inspector and ourselves on materials, techniques, and standards exceeded our expectations. It became evident that your expectations were as high as ours.
We are very pleased with our new home and our experience with Hillson Homes. We would be happy to recommend your company to anyone interested in a new home.

We have always voiced our delight over hiring Hillson Homes to build our home. It is long overdue but time to put it in writing. In a booming market place we didn't think it was possible to get the outstanding service delivered by you guys.
From budgeting to ensuring high quality, to always being available for questions, to being flexible to modifications, the Hillson Crew was always there.
We recognized and appreciated how you always went the extra mile. It is sad to say but finding people with integrity these days is not a given. From the stories we have heard, there are few other builders that measure up to your standards.
Anytime you need a reference or to show our house; your work: please let us know. We are very proud to say our house was built by Hillson Homes.
Prior to hiring you guys we thought we would not want to go through this building process ever again!!! You changed our mind. Based on this experience we would build again but only with Hillson.

With your exceptional stewardship, the project was efficiently and effectively completed ahead of schedule and below the original estimated cost. During a time of very busy construction in the city and the difficulty getting trades by all contractors, you still pulled it off and in excellent style.
Throughout the building process you were visible, helpful and the advice you gave was first rate. We ended up with a better product than we thought possible for the price we were quoted. Your ability to work with trades people, the neighbors we built near, and us, was greatly appreciated. All went harmoniously and smoothly.
Each day that we visited the site, trades people related to us how much respect they had and the integrity they felt while working with you. Obviously you have garnered great respect in the building industry and you truly exemplify the Master Builder designation that I know you have achieved.
Thank you for helping us to achieve our dreams and goals in the completion of the complex. Your honesty, willingness to be flexible and offers of support are truly appreciated. We would welcome any further opportunity to work with you and for sure would be most willing to offer a reference whenever and wherever it would be sought.

From the selection of the floor plan through to the first few months of getting used to a new house, our questions and concerns were quickly responded to and dealt with. We have been impressed and appreciative of how readily available you have been.
Paul & Cathy
They paid attention to detail and found cost savings for us when possible and are finishing up ahead of schedule. I can't sing higher praises for this company - they more than met our needs.
