The inflationary context that we envisaged as temporary could just be the start of a new reality for the renovation market.
Renovating now, rather than waiting for prices to ease, will be your best financial decision.

 

 

THE CONTEXT :

Inflation caused by the pandemic is currently being increased by the conflict in Ukraine. It will accentuate and stretch over time.
To counter this inflation, a series of interest rate hikes will happen over the next two years. The decrease of these rates, will only be hypothetical at best.

Quebec lacks about 60,000 homes to achieve a balanced market. This reality will push the government to facilitate the construction of these units in order to make home ownership more affordable. In doing so, the increase in demand for labor and materials shared with the renovation sector will push the prices even further.

As with all sectors, the renovation industry is facing a labor shortage that is not going away any time soon. Labor costs will necessarily continue to grow.
As for materials, at best, prices will gradually stabilize as manufacturing plants and supply chains recover post-pandemic. However, it is a safe bet that the strong demand for materials will continue to drive prices up.

In light of these facts, it is easy to understand that renovation prices today are certainly more affordable than they will be in the future. Now let’s see how we can help you.

 

OUR DISTINCTIVE STRENGTHS TO REDUCE THE EFFECTS OF THE CURRENT CONTEXT AND ALLOW BETTER BUDGETARY CONTROL AND BETTER DEADLINES:

Our integrated design and construction gives us the best position in the market to give you the right information on costs and deadlines for your project. Independent designers have lost their budget references, while we are in direct contact with the various stakeholders, while we accompany you with the design and planning of your project.

Our volume of business allows us to secure our purchases at the best prices with our suppliers and our subcontractors.

Our storage capacity allows us to store raw materials at the best price.

We favour local purchases to reduce our exposure to logistical problems impacting the delivery of materials, and therefore delays for your project.

 

WHY RENOVATE NOW RATHER THAN POSTPONING YOUR PROJECT?

The high value of homes allows more than ever a positive return on a renovation investment. Interest rates are still low.
The anticipated rise in demand has yet to materialize to its full potential.
Industry regulated wages have not yet been increased by the negotiation of the next collective agreement (CCQ).
The decision to invest in the transformation of your home, despite the excitement of the moment, remains the best financial decision.

THE GIFTS THAT THIS ADVENTURE WILL PROCUR:

By controlling the whole project, we can intervene much more efficiently at each step, beforehand.
Our clients are secure with their budget before the work begins.
Shortages have forced us to review our supply chains by favouring local purchases to minimize possible delays due to transport and logistics.
We further encourage our local economy, while reducing our ecological footprint.
The increase in prices has led to greater awareness among all stakeholders.
We recover, we recycle, we maintain our tools in better condition in order to avoid having to buy new equipment.
