In order to ensure your awareness and peace of mind, a series of meetings will be set up. Read on to discover the steps of our process.

Most Kenco Construction homes are designed and drawn by our company. This is done by different methods, such as:
Once a plan is finalized, we will need to specify what goes into the house. We will ask you whether you want brick, siding or stucco on the exterior of the home; asphalt, tile or shakes on the roof; chrome or bronze fixtures; etc. This meeting will take 3 to 4 hours, and then the plans and specifications will be sent out for pricing. We will also go shopping for cabinets, flooring, tile, plumbing, etc. Kenco Construction is one of the leading home builders in Medicine Hat and we will provide you with good quality products at a reasonable price.
Once the prices come back from the sub-trades, we put them together to form your quote. This quotation will show:
Once the decisions have been made as to what items are going into the house, we will sit down and sign a contract. At this meeting, you will also be taught how to use our online web-based computer program that allows you to see the construction schedule, when payments are due, what and when selections need to be made, the process for changes and how our warranty program works.
We will meet with you often. Ken, Vaughn and Kathy will meet with you to discuss selections, questions, changes or concerns that you may have during the construction of your home. Meetings will range from 30 minutes to 4 hours long. Just a few examples of some of those meetings are as follows:
There will be 2 warranty meetings scheduled. The first is between 2 and 8 weeks after you move in and the second is approximately 1 year after you move in. At these meetings, we will note any areas that need improvement and we will set a date when the various sub-trades can come and perform the work.
