"We don't build them like we used to. We build them better."

There was a time when people used to say, "They don't build them like they used to" and it was probably correct. But today, it is no longer true: new homes are much better constructed. The building industry has come a long way in the last 10 years. Technology and higher standards have improved the way we build. Local codes have forced builders to build to higher standards. Improvements include:

  • Energy efficiency through Energy Star and Green Building.
  • The involvement of Structural Engineer and engineered products has improved overall integrity.
  • High Tech wiring keeps up with today's demands for information and comfort.

  • Newer floor plans what will bring more money when it is time to sell. In other words a better investment in the future.
  • Lower cost to maintain.
