Construction Practices

We build every home as though it were our own. Below are some of our best construction practices and the reasoning behind them.

Wire Ladders

These wire reinforcement rods are placed in the concrete walls at every 3 courses of block. This provides strength, stability and is the best preventative measure for settlement cracks.

Solid Stem Walls

All of our stem walls are poured solid. This provides for the best and strongest foundation for your home.

Termite Treatment

We provide a complete under-slab termite treatment. This is a 2 step treatment with the second step applied at the end of construction as a 10 foot perimeter treatment around the entire home. This provides the best protective barrier against sub-terranian termites and keeps the chemicals out of your home..

Tile Roof on Plywood Decking

There continues to be a debate on plywood vs OSB and don’t get us wrong, OSB is a good product but in our opinion plywood is best for the Southwest Florida climate. In our research we found plywood to have the greater screw and nail holding ability. Plywood tested better when hit by flying debris. After becoming wet plywood returns to its original shape while OSB swells (especially around the edges) and stays that way. In high humidity areas OSB has less resistance to decay and crumbling than plywood. At least 2 roofing manufacturers – Cellotex and Tamko prefer plywood and lastly, here in Florida, Dade County still bans the use of OSB on roofs.

Additional wood backing is placed in the walls to ensure maximum strength for the hanging of your cabinets and wall mounted televisions.

R5 Tuff Board Insulation

The Tuff-R 5.0 R value insulation is a closed cell foam insulation with radiant barrier that is used on concrete masonry exterior walls. This product exceeds local insulation requirements. It provides an excellent benefit to the homeowner as it enhances thermal efficiency which helps reduce energy costs.

Tyvek House Wrap

This product helps protect your home against damaging wind and rain that can penetrate through the exterior cladding. It blocks water from penetrating walls but allows the walls to breathe to assist the prevention of mold and mildew growth. Additionally, it stops air movement through the walls for a more energy efficient home.

Hurricane Impact Windows

Metal Interior Wall Studs

In our opinion the use of interior metal framing is far superior to wood framing with white pine. Metal framing has been the standard in commercial construction for years. The qualities of metal make it a perfect choice for new residential construction. Metal does not warp, burn, wick water, hold mold or mildew and is not a home for termites, carpenter ants or wood boring beetles.
