Footers and foundations are designed by engineers to ensure structural soundness. The Architectural Department designs all structural components such as pier locations in a Curtain Wall Foundation.
Footings and foundations undergo thorough checks by our Project Managers as well as county inspectors.
Roof trusses are built in our manufacturing plant in Kings Mountain, NC. The truss system is designed and load calculations are examined by engineers to ensure structural integrity. These trusses are part of our 10 yr. structural warranty.
Panelized construction is considered more “green” since it reduces material waste.
Panelized construction may have notes regarding materials to be used. Seen here are instructions for 3 pieces of southern yellow pine next to a piece of spruce. Panelized construction emphasizes attention to detail.
Exterior walls are glued at the base of the wall where it joins the subfloor to prevent air flow.
Insulation is stapled at each seam which improves effectiveness.
Exterior corners are glued in order to decrease air penetration.
Insulation is also placed behind all exterior wall electrical receptacles, attic pull down panels, and storage area doors.
Building Wrap aids in insulating the area behind tub/showers.
This provides an air barrier. The seams are taped for a tight seal.
Green Guard Building Wrap covers the entire house and the seams are taped for improved efficiency.
Thermal Ply, also referred to as Energy Brace, is used in areas where additional attic space is present behind finished walls. It can often be seen around bonus rooms.
Mastic is used rather than duct tape at joints in the duct work to reduce leakage at these points.
The slight green tint reduces light flow through the window.
Guardian Home Technologies provides a central panel where phone and cable wiring are run. This allows for easy maintenance of the wiring systems.
Ridge vents are used to increase air flow and ventilation in attic areas.
