While you have the final say as the homeowner, we recommend materials known for durability and sustainability—like resilient LP SmartSiding and trim, architectural shingles, composite decking, and high-performance windows. We also recommend air-to-air heat exchange systems to provide constant fresh, clean air. And you’ll find only top-grade interior finishes like solid core doors. Our expertise ensures a home crafted to last over 30 years of active family life.

Low-Maintenance, Sustainable Materials

Investing in quality materials upfront means lower maintenance requirements in the years ahead.

  • Stay comfortable year-round with maintenance-free windows. We outfit homes with Andersen 400 Series windows which offer superior weather resistance.
  • Enjoy long-lasting curb appeal with LP SmartSide engineered wood siding and trim. These products resist fungal decay, termites, and damage from impacts and humidity.
  • Save on energy costs with superior insulation. We install 1/2-inch foam insulated sheathing on exterior walls to significantly increase the home’s R-value for greater thermal performance. This foam sheathing also provides essential moisture control.
New Home

We incorporate the Focus on Energy program in all projects. Whether it is a new home or a remodel, we meet these energy requirements:

  • Air-to-air exchanges
  • R 27.5 wall package
  • R-50 minimum attic package
  • Closed cell spray foam
