The structure of the home, or the bones, is the most important part of a home to make your investment in.
To start with you must invest in a properly engineered reinforced poured concrete foundation that has a high quality waterproofing, insulated on the outside, and drain tiled to a sealed sump basket with a pump this keeps the foundation dry.
The home framing system starts with an engineered floor system that exceeds current codes, walls built of top grade finger-jointed stud material and finally having well trained professional carpenter crew doing the work.
Great windows now days like Andersen 100 series with Fibrex that will our live any wood window and a tight insulated envelope to retain the heat in the winter cooling in the summer. HVAC systems sized properly will make your home energy efficient for years to come.
These are ways to insure, before you even drywall and cover the structure up, that your home will last for generations to come.
