Prospect Builders Ltd. is a family business with a long history of providing quality services. The company was started in 1978 by Lois and Dwayne Palmer; today it is operated by their son, Jeff Palmer, who is taking over the business. Jeff oversees the clients’ needs, the construction sites and the day to day operations.

Our philosophy is that your home is an extension of your lifestyle. Each of our construction projects is completed with exceptional quality, cost efficiency, and environmental responsibility in mind. We have a reputation of providing the latest in energy efficient technology and best practice building techniques. Our innovative design team provides both conceptual and construction drawings tailored to each clients’ vision and needs.

Our mission is to deliver high-quality services; whether it be in the construction of a custom-built home, renovations or additions to an existing home. As a family run business, we value the importance of outstanding quality and dependability which is evident in the relationships with our clients, employees, sub-contractors and the community.

We are proud of our long record with the Ontario New Home Warranty Program (TARION). Prospect Builders is among the first 1,000 builders in Ontario to be a registered with this program. We have maintained a clean record for the past 34 years of excellent standing, free from conciliations and delayed closings.
