2018 Leading Energy Efficient Builders

2018 Leading Energy Efficient Builders
LEEB-2018-Seal

Meet the builders who have stepped up to a leadership role in the construction of energy efficient, high-performance homes in the Rio Grande Valley—superior in every way to code-built homes.

This month the RGV New Homes Guide features an elite group of builders who, during the past year, have earned the right to be called Leading Energy Efficient Builders.

While many builders today claim that their homes are energy efficient, only those—like the ones featured here—with homes identified as “high performance” by programs like BUILT TO SAVE or ENERGY STAR® are able to support those claims with a third-party written guarantee from a RESNET Certified Rater. A written guarantee is much better than just words.

Whether it is time or money, the 2018 Leading Energy Efficient Builders featured here invest above and beyond what is required by minimum building codes to make sure you, the buyer, are getting a superior home worthy of their company’s name. These builders are true leaders at a time when many, even buyers, are content to accept the most basic of standards in a new home—an investment that is meant to last a lifetime.

We invite you to compare the “above code” quality construction and benefits of a BUILT TO SAVE or ENERGY STAR® home with a similar home built to code. Aside from the most obvious benefit of impressive savings on your monthly utility bills, you’ll discover enhanced comfort, durability, superior resale value, and the peace of mind that what is behind the walls was inspected by a third-party energy rater to guarantee compliance with strict high performance home requirements.
