Common questionsBrowse all FAQs
How much does a custom website cost?
Our hand-coded, custom websites start around $3,800CAD.
The exact cost depends on your specific needs and goals. The competitiveness of your market can also play a role.
For a firm price, please get in touch to set up a free consultation session. Afterwards we’ll provide a solid estimate of the total cost of the project, with no obligation for you to continue.
How long does it take to build a website?
6 to 8 weeks is a common, start-to-finish timeline for a website project.
The scale and complexity of the website will also affect the overall timeline.
6-8 weeks is typical for a small business website for a local company with a brick-and-mortar presence. The development time for a large online store, on the other hand, would be considerably more.
At the beginning of your project, we will agree to a series of milestones in order to set clear expectations and keep your project on track.
