Better-Built, High Performance Homes
We believe in building healthier, durable, and more energy-efficient homes for our clients. Sometimes the elements of a home that you cannot see are the most important to your home's long-term performance.
Our high performance, eco-friendly custom homes are designed and built with carefully selected products throughout. Each of our customers dictates the degree to which they wish to build green - from very efficient to Net Zero.
Depending on your preference and choice of efficiency level, your home may include:
- 2x6" walls - allowing greater room for additional insulation
- High quality, energy-efficient doors, and windows
- Durable duct system to reduce leaks and poor connections
- Premium insulation, caulking, and sealing
- Water-saving faucet fixtures
- Dual-flush toilets
- Energy-efficient lightbulbs and fixtures
- Sustainably sourced materials when available
- Solar or solar-ready systems
- Geothermal heating and cooling
- Radon-Ready System
- Waterproofing capillary breaks
- Attic access insulation
We stay ahead of the codes and on-top the latest advancements in green building and always consider how we can incorporate them into our homes. This is how our eco-friendly houses provide our clients with the most savings.
Benefits of a Green Home
We refer to our homes as "better built" because, at the end of the day, that's what they are. They are more comfortable, more energy-efficient, and they require less maintenance over time. When you choose Hibbs Homes as your new construction home building team, you benefit from
- Greater Savings: Energy-efficient homes save money on electricity bills.
- Responsible Choice: The homes we build are better for the environment because they cut down the use of natural resources. We also incorporate recycled materials and renewable energy sources in our designs whenever possible.
- Healthier Homes: The homes that we build have better indoor air quality with fewer allergens, mold, and viruses, and less air and water intrusion. Good health begins at home.
- Better Value: In addition to the savings that you realize from lower utility bills and reduced maintenance costs, there is the benefit of higher resale values on a certified energy-efficient home at the time of sale. Many energy-efficient homes sell for as much as 5-9% higher than similar homes.
After many years as a leader in high-performance home building, we know that there's truly no better way to build a custom home. Let us build a home for you that keeps your family comfortable and healthy for the life of your home.
