When you think of home, what comes to mind?
Maybe it’s the feeling of the thick, luxurious carpeting that reminds you of being young. Or it could be the warm summer sunshine, breaking through the windowpanes in the morning, illuminating a house that’s still blissfully quiet as you enjoy your first cup of coffee. Whatever it may be, you know it when you see it – and that’s what Laratta brings to you. Home.
We know that there’s much more to a home than just a few walls, windows, doors, and drapes. Home is a place where you are comfortable, safe, and truly relaxed; it’s where you see your family, chat with friends, and create the stories that last a lifetime. It’s more than just a building – it’s a connection to a place that you call your own.
LOVE WHERE YOU LIVE
At Laratta Homes, we strive to create those spaces for our customers. We painstakingly process all the details and manifest your desire so that when your keys are handed over for the first time, you walk into a place that you feel like you’ve intimately known for years – and you truly understand what it means to “Love Where You Live”.
This satisfaction is why hundreds of people have been choosing Laratta Homes for more than forty years. We make sure that your new home is personalized just for you, and that you are fully involved in its creation, every step of the way.
THE ART OF MAKING A HOME
The journey starts with the discovery. Together, we take the time to help you find where and how you want to live, your budget, your timelines, and all the other pieces that make our process unique. If necessary, we locate the perfect lot of land for you, ensuring it speaks to your needs and will serve you for as long as you’ll need it – whether it’s a forever home or the latest chapter in your ongoing story.
Once the location is locked in, we begin designing, under your direction. Whether you have an architectural designer already or you work with our in-house team, we’ll turn your dreams into blueprints and a solid vision that will guide us forward. From palettes to plates, even our interior designers contribute to the smallest details that will truly personalize your new home, making sure that it is meaningful and significant in ways you never imagined – such as using wood reclaimed from a family farm, or harmoniously blending natural materials that you love into the structure and surroundings.
All alongside this, we assist in developing proper budgets, contracts, and plans to ensure that everything stays within your means, and send the documents to our preferred partners who will work hard to win your project.
After that, it’s time to get to the most exciting part – the building, renovations, and landscaping. As your new home begins to take shape, we know communication is key, so our Project Management team is available in person and through your own online customer portal anytime you want to check in and offer feedback, thoughts, or concerns.
Our process doesn’t stop when the walls are up and the paint is dry, though. We work with the Alberta New Home Warranty Program to provide 1, 2, 5, or 10 years of warranty on your new Laratta home – and in addition, this insurance can include “peace of mind” coverage with numerous customer protection options to make your home building experience worry free. With homes that last far beyond the warranty, we are proud to have earned ANHWP’s Golden Hammer Award of Distinction for more than 40 years of service.
So – why do people choose Laratte Homes? It’s because we offer something unique and welcoming, in an industry where our roots run strong and deep. We want you to have more than a home – we enrich your life through our work, so you can truly love where you live.
