Frequently Asked Questions


How do I know if a RTM home is right for me?

There are a variety of reasons why so many people choose Jade Homes. Along with our expertise in designing and building quality custom homes, our customers greatly value our:

  • Convenience – Jade Homes takes care of building your home and moving it to your land.
  • Quality – In a controlled environment we can supervise the entire build from start to finish.
  • Timeline – We only require 6 months to complete a custom build.
  • Customer Service – Our customers come first, always. We are there every step of the way until final delivery.

What's the difference between a RTM and modular home?

A modular home will arrive to the property in separate pieces, and then will be assembled onsite. A pre-fab home arrives in one sturdy, well assembled piece. This makes the process easier and less stressful.

What is the price per square foot?

It will all depend on the building specifications and options you choose. To receive a copy of our building specifications, options and information about Jade Homes, please contact us at

Where do you deliver?

Currently we deliver in Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Montana, and North & South Dakota.

Design, Planning &
Build Process

Do I have to choose one of your plans?

We want to let your creativity shine! Think of our plan catalogues as thought starters. We encourage all homeowners to bring ideas to us. As a custom builder, our goal is to construct the perfect home according to you, at no extra cost.

Are houses inspected as they are built?

Yes. We are a CSA approved RTM builder and enforce strict quality control in all aspects of our trade and throughout the entire building process of our prefab homes. Our Production Manager inspects all pre-built homes throughout the building process and certified persons from Calgary also routinely inspect our pre-assembled homes throughout all stages.

Do you build basements, garages and foundations?

RTM homes are our specialty and the only thing we do. However, Jade Homes partners with a variety of talented and reputable trades & services that we will be more than happy to recommend upon request.

What are my finishing choices?

As mentioned earlier, we want to foster your creativity. Our vendors offer a wide range of options for you to choose from. And our sales & design associates can assist throughout the entire building process.

Am I responsible for transport costs?

Planning and design is included in the price of your RTM, and that includes transportation. Clients are responsible for making sure their location is set-up with power and utilities. Power line lifting fees may also be applicable, and are the responsibility of the owner.

Service &

Will the walls crack during the move?

Yes, the walls will likely experience minor cracking during the move. However, these cracks are only cosmetic and do not affect the structural integrity. To ensure a solid and structurally sound home, we glue our OSB sheeting on all exterior walls and install bracing on all exterior doorways and trusses. As part of your one year home warranty, Jade Homes will also repair all cracking after our delivery inspection is complete.

What happens if the RTM home is seriously damaged during the move?

Although very unlikely, in the event there is major damage done to the home during transportation, the customer is not liable.
