Frequently Asked Questions

The truth is, it depends on your goals and/or desired certification program, and your baseline spec package. Our commitment is to help our customers find the most cost effective way to meet their goals. We can often help offset any incurred costs through increased labor and material efficiencies, avoidance of long-term issues, incentives, and selling the value of your high-performance home at a premium. Reach out for a custom pricing package!

No! Our services are designed to fit seamlessly into your build cycle. Plus, we guarantee to be on-site within 48 hours of a schedule request.

We’ll have a discovery call to identify your goals, budget, timeline, and market position and make recommendations best fitted to your needs. In short, we meet you where you are.

Consumers are very wary of so-called “green-washing” and often look to independent sources for reviews and certifications, much like Yelp for restaurants and Rotten Tomatoes for movies.

We provide training and educational resources to marketing staff, sales agents, and trades to ensure you can capture the full value of your high-performance homes. We can also support you with custom marketing collateral to help share your sustainability story.

Here For You

We know that building a home is complex, and that it’s frustrating and costly to solve unexpected problems. Since 2001, we’ve helped builders solve home performance challenges to build more efficient homes, profitably and on schedule — without the headaches during or after construction.
