Better Built Homes
As a design build firm we take the time to listen and . If you don’t already have a designer for your home we have a partnering designer that can help to create a house plan that exceeds your expectations and brings you a house that can become your home. Using our designer is not a must as we have worked with many designers across the triad. We will take any plan and break it down to help you understand every step of the building process. In doing this we bring our unique style of building to deliver the home of your dreams.
From the ground up we make sure to fully engineer and certify our homes. This can included taking compaction samples of the earth, adding reinforcement to your footings, and using preformed foundation walls with steel and insulation built in. From there our framing is engineered and stamped, making sure all loads are calculated and properly distributed to the foundation. Using quality engineered products and SFI sourced wood helps to insure the structural integrity of your home is sound. This allows very minimal settling of your overall home during you many years of enjoyment.
Following the core principles of Building Science we focus heavily on preventing water intrusion. Water is the biggest cause of damage to a home and proper sealing from the foundation all the way to the roof allows us to make sure water doesn’t ever enter you home. We use Superior Walls for all basement applications to help create a perfectly dry, insulated , and sealed basement environment. In addition sprayed waterproofing and proper drainage to the french drain making sure no water ever enters your basement. Proper window flashing as well as sloped sills keep water from entering and ruining your beautiful home. All roof penetrations are sealed and flashed properly to prevent water from coming in from above. We use the latest from Tyvek and Zip System to help create a watertight home. Our waterproofing package has been tried and tested and far surpasses the code guidelines for North Carolina.
