  • Engineered, steel reinforced foundation with a minimum 3000 psi concrete

 

  • Treated toe plates, bolted on exterior walls, on 1st floor of residence

 

  • 16" on center framing practices, with fire blocking

 

  • 7/16" OSB Exterior Sheathing with TYVEK house wrap

 

  • Second story floors have engineered floor joists with minimum 1 1/8" Advantech flooring

 

  • All Exterior penetrations to be foam sealed

 

  • Pest Shield in Wall pest tubing with Borate treatment on toe plates for termite protection in standard insulated homes. Not available on foam insulated homes.

 

  • Window of choice by customer - Aluminum, Vinyl, or Wood windows available from Plygem and Pella

 

  • 100% masonry exterior, rock and/or stucco

 

  • 15 SEER HVAC systems by Amana, Ruud or Carrier with Rigid Main Trunk Lines and April Air Media Filters

 

  • Insulation - Tri-Built can insulate two different ways:

    1. Batt and blown insulation using r-13 or r-19 batts at exterior walls and r-30 or r-38 blown at attic areas. All interior walls to have r-11

    2. Use a spray foam product "icynene" at all exterior walls and roof trusses. Sound batts at interior walls. This is the most energy efficient method but upfront costs are higher. We will discuss this in more detail at the planning stages.
