Industry recognition is always a great endorsement – and it's especially useful when you are looking for a company to design and build your new home.

Jalcon Homes, a family-owned firm that has been building homes in the Auckland region for the past 20 years, has numerous awards to its credit, with most of these awarded by the Master Builders Association.

Managing director Lindsay Aitken says the awards reflect the company's focus on quality and design innovation. But equally important to Jalcon Homes is the company's performance history.

"We have built more than 1000 homes, and never had a leaky home issue," Aitken says. "Many of our new clients now come from word of mouth – recommendations from former customers."

Jalcon Homes also has several key points of difference that set the business apart. These include complete customisation – the company does not have a range of standard plans. Instead, every project is designed to meet the specific site, budget and lifestyle requirements, whether it be a single family home or a group of modern townhouses for a developer.

Aitken says it can often be more cost effective to remove and rebuild, rather than renovate an older home.

"Replacing an older home on the same site brings enormous benefits, in addition to being able to stay in a neighbourhood you love, says Aitken. "Older homes are often built the wrong way round for the sun. They are invariably poorly insulated, may be leaky, and don't cater well to modern living. And there can be unseen costs when you renovate that can blow your budget. None of these things apply to a new home."

Jalcon Homes has designed and built many homes on small and tricky city sites.

"We can ensure your home is designed to maximise a particular view, and provide privacy where it matters. We also create attractive outdoor living areas, which are so much a part of the way we live today."

Jalcon Homes also has an interior design consultancy, which can help you with the finishing touches to your home.

"We want to ensure you are happy with the end result, and we don't believe building should be stressful," says Aitken. "With good communication, every step of the process can be rewarding."
