Beautiful Home

Cantiro Homes really builds exceptional houses. We purchased a spec home because we fell in absolute love with the floor plan. After living here for 3 months, we could clearly tell where they cheaped out e.g. interior doors and hardware, but nothing major. A few minor things need tweaking come review time but they have proven to be responsive to requests. Would definitely buy from them again and advise others to trust them as well.

Okay home, bad driveway

My husband and I decided to go with Dolce Vita to build our first home together. They built a fairly decent home with very minor issues to fix with the actual house. We noticed spalling and pitting to our driveway after the first year. We got an explanation that it’s “Alberta weather” and the chemicals the city uses on the roads. If this were the case, all of Edmonton’s driveways would be in the same condition. I believe that dolce vita chose the cheapest contractor to pour the driveway and is now blaming weather for my crumbling driveway. I am now angry because we spent hundreds of thousands of dollars and now we will be stuck with a big bill when we have to replace our 3 YEAR OLD driveway. When I went to Unicon to buy the seal for our driveway, the concrete specialist also agreed that I was a subpar pour and NOT Alberta weather.

Please buy from a different builder

Once you buy from Dolce Vita Homes and something breaks down then they are your worst enemies. Our driveway was built on uncompacted soil so it is sinking, there are big deep voids under the concrete slabs causing cracks and big chunks of cement are peeling off and West side of front yard sank about 9 inches but they do not care as a lot of homes built by Dolce Vita are having same issues very poor workmanship. Couple of tiles in our washroom cracked but they declined to fix as
they blame every issue on home owner. Please buy from a different builder and hire a home inspector to find underlying issues. Please talk to neighbours to find out what problems they are facing. Wish I could give this builder negative 0.

Dolce Vita Homes is the worst builder when it comes to home warranty. They will make you regret when something breaks down and you call for repairs under new home warranty. A lot of Dolce Vita Homes are having driveway problems. My home driveway was built on uncompacted soil so it is sinking and bad quality concrete is disintegrating but they refused to fix it blaming City's snow removal salt. They have declined to properly repair our washroom cracked tiles.

This builder is a worst nightmare for a new home buyer. Save yourself a lot of hassle by buying from a different builder & hire a professional home inspector to find underlying issues.

This builder just replies the reviews but does not fix the issues.
