What Makes a High-Performance Home Different?

If this is your first time building a new home, you may be wondering what exactly is a high-performance home? Put simply, a high-performance home is built with a reliance precision, superior processes, and the high-quality materials. Sometimes called sustainable or green homes, high-performance homes are measured and compared to other conventionally built homes and existing homes. They are assigned a value by an independent rating professional, which proves high-performance homes are:

  • Healthier to Live In
  • More Comfortable, Room to Room and Floor to Floor
  • Use Less Energy & Water
  • Are More Durable

At Hibbs Homes, our home building philosophy is simple - we build better homes because it is the right thing to do. That is why every home we build is a high-performance home.

Director of Construction Chris Pedigo and Owner/President Kim Hibbs have lead our team to become an award-winning high-performance home builder. They share their insights and experiences with our homeowners every day, educating them on why our approach to building makes a difference in the quality of the homes we build and the lives of the families who live in them.

Kim and Chris sit down to share some of the technical aspects of high-performance building and how those materials and practives translate into a better home overall. This video was recorded live in the Hibbs Homes St Louis offices on September 28, 2021.
