Harder Homes Ltd.

Airdrie, Alberta

A veteran in the industry, Owner and President Wayne Harder began sweeping floors on his father’s commercial projects as a child. He quickly moved on to begin his career as a production foreman before expanding his skill set in the areas of sales, purchasing and estimation. With eighteen years of construction experience under his belt, founding his own custom home-building company was the natural next step.

Now many years later, Harder Homes continues to operate as a family owned business building new custom estate homes in Airdrie, Calgary and the surrounding area.  Wayne still works intimately with all aspects of the business, overseeing every house as though he was building his own. Harder Homes commits to only building a select number of executive homes per year so that it can continue to provide the face-to-face, personal approach to building homes that each customer deserves. “We built Harder Homes as a family, and when you build with Harder Homes, you become part of our family,” says Wayne Harder.

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy, “Built for the Way you Live” reflects our commitment to building beautiful custom homes for the families who live in them. Each Harder Home is built with style, quality and functionality using only high-end products, professionally skilled trades and cutting edge building practices. A true custom home builder from start to finish, our disciplined approach to construction, exceptional customer service and our one-on-one approach to the home building experience has earned us an unsurpassed reputation in the Home Builders Community. From move-up to estate homes, from urban living to acreage life, Harder Homes can build you the home of your dreams on one of our lots or on any lot you own.

Our Partners

Building a home involves a large number of trades people and suppliers, all of whom are a key part of the building process. That is why Harder Homes has carefully selected award winning suppliers and has partnered up with experienced skilled trades people, who overtime have become an extension of its business. Harder Homes continues to use many of the same trades and suppliers today that were used to build the very first Harder Home. This consistency has allowed Harder Homes to provide unsurpassed quality through the construction process and in servicing. Partnering with skilled trades and quality suppliers allows Harder Homes to continue to meet customer needs and deliver each home on time, every time.

When you build a custom home with Harder Homes, you deal directly with the Owner and in doing so, you can be sure to get straight answers to your questions and feel confident that your home will turn out exactly the way you want it to. A people first, one on one building experience is unique to Harder Homes and we take pride in being a custom home builder focused on building relationships. Harder Homes was built as a family and is operated as family. When you build with Harder Homes, you become part of the family.

Our Plan

Every year, Harder Homes develops a building plan which is centered on continued sustainable growth. By only building according to the plan, Harder Homes can ensure that every home and every customer receives the one-on-one attention they deserve. This disciplined approach to the building process has enabled Harder Home’s to maintain a standard of quality that is difficult to achieve when constructing a larger number of homes and to focus on the attention to detail that you expect to see in your custom-built home.
