Shawn is at your project everyday ensuring everything is done right and to the highest standards, guiding you through the entire selection process to help you maximize your investment and make the best possible decisions! Academy Homes uses only finest local craftsman and top quality suppliers in the area! A great home is built with great people and great products, without these – its just an another average home. Our customers deserve the best quality home for their hard earned money! We also focus on the environment by practicing “green building techniques”. We recycle all cardboard products, transfer usable material from jobsite to jobsite, and work hard to minimize our waste! By doing so we can minimize waste that goes to the landfill and reduce our carbon footprint.
Save, Save, Save!
Building lower priced, high efficiency homes is one of our main missions. We start by using top quality windows that use argon gas filled, insulated glass. Then add top-rated Carrier brand high- efficiency heating and cooling system with sealed ductwork. Next, all wood penetrations are spray foamed to stop any air infiltration in unwanted areas. The icing on the cake is our incredible net & blow insulation system. It provides great sound deadening properties and over 21% better R-value than standard insulation, not to mention it EXCEEDS local energy star requirements. This combination of features provide great value and lowered utility bills ensuring you get to keep more of your hard earned money. Now that’s something to smile about!
The Good Stuff
Academy Homes’ standard features are practically unbeatable! Many homebuilders strip down or offer few options from the start allowing them to upgrade through the building process to drive up their profits, We prefer to give as many of the popular upgrades as possible from the start to help you maximize your investment and reduce overruns. This philosophy has helped us become a very popular and competitive builder. Knowing you don’t have to pay more to get more is a great feeling! Please refer to our feature page for details.
