Will There be Hidden or Surprise Expenses with USModular?


A typical annoyance that home builders come across is the buried or surprise extra costs added when building an on-site home. Many first-time homeowners have created a set budget they dont plan to exceed, only to discover that there are many costly costs that seem to appear out of nowhere.

Common Hidden Costs for On-Site Home Builds in Ontario

  • Permits – there are many Ontario permits required before on-site production can begin.
  • Perk testing – this measures the rate of water absorption and determines how big of a sand mound and leach field you will require.
  • Surveying: – many Ontario builders have to pay a surveyor to map the property lines, set backs from road ways, and any legal right of ways.
  • Internal Customizations – such as appliances, fireplaces, etc.
  • Overages – last minutes changes and unexpected expenses
  • Utilities – such as electricity used for construction, gas, water, etc.
  • Water treatment systems – usually only a problem with well water

These surprise extra costs for on-site builds can add up quickly and force you off the budget you had originally planned.
