exterior_4At Legacy Homes we believe that quality and customer service are the most important aspects of any business. Since we began, Legacy Homes has strived to develop the highest quality homes available in the Ottawa Valley. We have accomplished this through developing the best team of craftsmen, and the experience gained from building over 500 homes.

Another strong aspect to “The Legacy Approach” is the relationship we develop with our clients. We meet with clients to help them determine their exact requirements for their new home. We implement these needs into the building process, which allows each home to be unique, and provide for the individual needs of every new client we build for. We stay in contact with our clients throughout the home building experience to ensure complete satisfaction.

Overall, Legacy Homes has been exceeding customer expectations since 1989 and we are proud to be homebuilders in the Ottawa Valley.
