Why Buy Tartan?

That’s a fair question to ask.

Our answer:  Tartan homes are built better, look better and live better than other homes on the market today. But we don’t simply make that claim. We demonstrate it with very specific ways in which a Tartan home delivers more value on the biggest investment you’ll ever make.

Uniquely Tartan

  • Smooth Ceilings Throughout

    Smooth Ceilings Throughout

    All Tartan homes feature 9′ smooth finish ceilings on the main floor, for brighter rooms and a more spacious and classic look.

  • More Light

    More Light

    Every Tartan home features larger windows on all levels.  Increasing the natural light in your home will save electricity and make you feel better physically and psychologically.

  • Contemporary Kitchens

    Contemporary Kitchens

    Our locally-crafted kitchens feature oversized islands, 40″ upper cabinets, pot lighting, a built-in fridge look, soft-close drawers & much more.

  • Better Basements

    Better Basements

    Our basements are warmer and drier thanks to R10 foam board insulation under the floor and are brighter with larger & more windows.

  • More Storage

    More Storage

    Every Tartan home features more and better storage than other builders. From walk-in closets to mudrooms and laundry rooms—our cabinets let you keep everything in its place.

  • Energy Efficiency

    Energy Efficiency

    Protecting you and your family from the elements, and reducing your energy bills by 25-30% in the process—is why all Tartan homes are built to meet the rigorous most current ENERGY STAR® standard for energy efficient new homes.

  • Incomparable Curb Appeal

    Incomparable Curb Appeal

    The first thing you’ll notice about a Tartan home is that they don’t look like other homes being built today. With their distinctive craftsman inspired exterior designs, Tartan homes add a warm, earthtone presence to the streetscape, comfortably combining classic and contemporary styling. The result: an exterior design of which you’ll be outwardly proud.

  • A Lot Means a Lot More

    A Lot Means a Lot More

    At Tartan, we build single family homes on lots that are both wide and deep.  Then we site our home on the lot to provide maximum yard space for you and your family – and more room between you and your neighbours.  Compare for yourself and you’ll see that our lots give you a lot more.

Superior Construction

At Tartan, our idea for building better homes is really quite simple: raise the bar on specifications and construction. That’s why the standard features and finishings you’ll find in every Tartan home go well beyond what the vast majority of builders consider the norm. Like 40-year architectural shingles, a higher level of insulation, 9’ main floor ceilings, and taller upper kitchen cabinets. We only accept and use the best materials, and only work with tradespeople whose commitment to quality matches our own.
