We require all sub-contractors to be insured including Workers' Compensation. We diligently maintain certificates of insurance on all of our trades and this is of the utmost importance for a homeowner building on their parcel.
Work to Back It Up
You may visit any of our current construction sites or previous ones as well. Subject to safety requirements of course, you may visit any of our current projects and we can schedule an appointment for a visit to any past projects. Also, this is also true for when your home is being built. Always mindful of safety first, a homeowner is always welcome on the jobsite.
Brand Products are a Standard in Our Homes
Top Brand products including name brand windows are standard in our homes. Our windows are high performance which means that your home is built to be comfortable and more energy efficient in the Texan climate. Low-emittance windows keep the heat from escaping in the winter and keeps the hot air outside in the summer. The two most important indicators of a windows performance are the U- factor and the SHGC (Solar Heat Gain Coefficient). The U-factor measures the insulation of a window, the lower the better. The SHGC measures how well the window blocks heat, again the lower the better.
