Royal Homes Recycling Program

ROYAL HOMES RECYCLING PROGRAM

 

Royal Homes supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Specifically goal 12.5 which is to substantially reduce waste generation through prevention, reduction, recycling and reuse.  The Royal Homes factory reduces waste by reusing scrap and has had a recycling program for many years.

 

 

Investment in the Recycling Program:

Scrap wood from the factory is picked up by our recycler for processing, it’s chipped and used to produce mulch. We also transport other scrap from our factory to our processor for recycling, which includes ABS pipe, coloured plastics, vinyl siding and house wrap. Both the factory and the head office transport paper, batteries and electronic waste to processors for recycling. We follow the Ontario Ministry of the Environment guidelines with respect to how hazardous materials are collected, stored, transported, treated, recovered and disposed to reduce adverse effects to human health and the environment.

 
 

Making the Recycling Program Sustainable:

Recycling copper wire, aluminum, steel, cardboard and clear plastic generates some revenue which helps to offset the investment in the program. Most of these items are bailed to optimize space so that as much material as possible is sent on every truckload. Scrap wood is also reused to make insulation stops for our homes. Finally, any material that is considered to be obsolete is sold or donated to local charities.

At Royal Homes we feel that prefabricating our homes in a factory allows us to better control how scrap materials are handled. This control enables us to efficiently minimize the amount of waste that goes to landfill.

Wonderful staff, always courteous, always striving to satisfy, really puts importance on the buyer.Christina

  • FAQ

    Where can I get a price list or How come your website doesn’t show pricing?

    Prices vary geographically, depending on where you are building. With the amount of options available, price lists run into thousands of options. Prices change with the options you choose. The best way to get an idea on pricing would be to contact our Design Centre nearest to where you are building.

    What is your average square foot selling price?

    Prices for a complete home, including foundation vary from $200 sq-ft to over $300 because our homes are all custom built, we can design a home to fit your budget.

    Why should I buy from you over a conventional or "Stick-Builder"?

    The advantages of prefab include building in a climate controlled environment, using environmentally friendly products which reduces waste and a CSA monitored quality controlled program. There is less time start to finish, with less disruption to neighborhood. We also sell at a firm price.

    Do your homes include a foundation?

    Yes our homes include full foundation and basement.

    How long does it take to build a Royal Home?

    It takes less than two weeks to build a home in our factory, but the process from start to finish is very dependent on the timing of obtaining a building permit. For most of our clients the process from start to delivery is twelve to sixteen weeks with move in eight to twelve weeks thereafter.

    What size homes do you build?

    As a custom builder we can build any size home but generally the average size range is between 1300 and 3500 sq feet.

    Do you build garages?

    Yes. Garages are built on site after the home is delivered.

    Are the homes energy efficient?

    Building a prefab home in a factory assures the highest attention to sealing the building envelope and ensures that the cold stays out.

    Since your homes are so energy efficient and air tight, how do you get fresh air?

    All our homes have HRV heat recovery ventilator air exchanger to remove stale air, and introduce fresh air.

    Where can I put a prefab home?

    Anywhere in Ontario you like.

    Can I really customize my prefab home?

    Yes, we use state of the art custom design software, today no two homes are built alike.

    Do you finish the basement?

    Yes. We can customize your basement to the finishes you desire.

    Are Royal Homes built to code?

    All Royal Homes are individually designed to meet all provincial and municipal building codes for your specific lot location.

    Do you build stick-built or conventional homes as well?

    We are a custom home builder first and use prefabricated components wherever we can, because it is a better way to build. If you have a remote site or custom home design with large open spaces we would look at what makes most sense for that design and location. This could include prebuilt panels or partially site built specific rooms.

    What makes the building process environmentally friendly?

    Waste in the factory is separated and recycled, reducing the impact on landfills. This has less disruption in terms of noise and time at job site. Building prefab allows for higher energy efficient homes and reduced heating costs.

    Our home is delivered by way of custom designed hydraulic flatbed trailers and precisely craned onto the foundation.

    Can you make changes or custom design?

    Yes, clients are given preliminary plans to review and changes are welcome and easily accommodated.
