We build your dream on a rock-solid foundation.
Building a custom home is the fulfillment of a dream – for you, your family and friends. It expresses your vision for your future. It enhances your quality of life. And, it’s a big emotional and financial investment.
That’s why you want to trust your new home to a builder who shares both your vision and your desire for outstanding quality. Someone who will build your new home as though they were building it for themselves.
At Lentel Construction, we’ve built our business on fulfilling people’s dreams, on keeping their trust, and on delivering what we promise. Our South Delta business has been built almost entirely on referrals: from clients, from people who have lived in our custom homes years after they were built, and from neighbours who have watched our houses being constructed. Ask around about us and you’ll see – Lentel means quality.
We build in every style – from traditional to modern.
During more than 40 years in business we’ve built a wide range of custom home projects throughout Metro Vancouver: from family homes to a seaside estate, heritage-style houses to West Coast Modern open-concept homes – even a timber frame, post and beam house in the countryside.
Our Red Seal-certified carpenters and hand-picked tradespeople have created everything from the ordinary to the extraordinary, and all with the same careful attention to detail: period-perfect wine cellars, craftsman-style built-ins, and post and beam frames with traditional joinery. If you can dream it, we can do it.
We’re with you from start to finish.
When you build a custom home with Lentel, we’re with you from start to finish – from the planning and design stages, through to the final landscaping and post-build check-ins.
While we don’t design in-house, we have a network of trusted and talented professionals with whom we work. If you need an architect, designer, interior designer, landscape architect or geotechnical engineer, we’d be happy to connect you with them.
If you need us to attend design meetings with you in the preliminary stages, we’re there. And once your project starts, we work seamlessly with your design team to bring your dream to life.
At every stage, we ensure that all details and any unforeseen problems are handled correctly and quickly. Years of experience have made us expert problem solvers with a large toolbox of practical and creative solutions.
Our experience can help you maximize your budget.
Our experience building and selling boutique developments means that we can offer you advice on how to maximize your budget for the best return in terms of quality, comfort, aesthetics and resale value. We’ll let you know where we think you should spend, and where we think you can save – without ever sacrificing quality. Our goal is to help you achieve the largest possible payoff for your dollar.
You have our full attention.
One of the advantages of dealing with a local, independent builder is personalized service. We build a limited number of custom homes at a time so that we can give each project our full attention, and so that our team of trusted craftspeople and subtrades can meet the schedule we set for your build.
It also means that if you need us to attend meetings with your designer or architect, or go with you to the tile store to recommend product, we’re available. Your new home is one of the biggest financial investments you’ll ever make and we want to focus on it.
Our team is positive, professional and solutions-oriented.
When you build a new home you could be working with your builder for eight months or more, in conditions that may feel unfamiliar and stressful. That’s why it’s important to hire a team that’s both professional and easy to work with – one that has a positive, solutions-oriented approach and stays calm under pressure. At Lentel, our team brings the same high-quality attitude to their work, as they put into their work, from daily site cleanups to respectful interaction with your neighbours.
Our customer care exceeds our warranty.
As part of our commitment to uncompromising quality, we’re on call for any issues you may have once you move in. We contact you two weeks after you move in to see if there are any issues we need to resolve, then again between three and six months later, and finally, at the 10 or 11-month mark. While our level of customer care goes above and beyond the terms of our Home Warranty, we want to make sure that you’re fully satisfied with all of the workmanship in your new home.
Lentel custom homes are covered by a 2-5-10 warranty from National Home Warranty, insured by Aviva. For more information about the terms of the warranty, please visit the National Home Warranty website.
