Divine Custom Homes is the only builder in the Rio Grande Valley that builds 100% of their homes as qualified ENERGY STAR® homes; this automatically certifies the homes as BUILT TO SAVE™, as well. Even more, the company demonstrates concern for the environment by adding the EPA’s Indoor airPLUS label to their ENERGY STAR® qualified homes and “green building” through certifying their homes as “GreenBuilt RGV.”
The visual beauty of Innovative Construction’s homes, both exteriors and interiors, is impressive, and the company is consistently winning awards for their design and craftsmanship. Yet what is under all that beauty is even more impressive because Innovative Construction is a builder member of the BUILT TO SAVE™ program. This means the company has their homes inspected during construction and tested upon completion to make sure they meet the strict energy efficiency requirements of the program.
Rich Heritage has long been recognized for excellence in construction by the RGV Builders Association for their Parade of Homes entries, and the company has acquired many awards. Indeed, their homes are master-crafted works of art. But more importantly, their BUILT TO SAVE™ certified homes combine both the exquisite craftsmanship Rich Heritage is known for with inspected and tested construction—built for high-performance efficiency.
If looking for perfection in design, craftsmanship, and energy efficiency in a new home, definitely consider Villa Homes. Their homes have special touches and designer features that are not add-on upgrades but are standard. This year, their entry in the Rio Grande Valley 2018 Parade of Homes took “Best of Show” among other awards—a testament to excellence in Villa Homes’ design and construction.
