What Does Quality Homes Mean To You?

Have you constantly heard the saying it’s not about the quantity, it’s about the quality?  Now how does this relate to homes? And how can we identify that a newly built home and or a refurbished and renovated home is built under quality? 


In short, something we all need to know about is that for your home to be built with quality, the foundation, walls and roofing material of your home needs to be of durable strength and long lasting material. Yes it all starts with those three contributing factors to identify a house built with quality. In comparison to many things in life like building a strong family unity or a strong work culture once again but on their own terms you must get the foundation and the environment right for it to be of quality. 


Let’s look into this further. So when you start building your home, of course you want the builder to ensure that the structure on the ground is built with the correct measurements and materials and tools to ensure that your home will be standing on a strong and stable structure. If this is the case then your home will be protected from natural disasters and you will in turn call your home a safe haven.  So the foundation of your home classifies its strength, resilience, quality and energy efficiency. 


Another factor that is vital to call your home quality is the roof. You definitely want a roof that will protect your family’s living area from the elements of nature. The rooftop material of your home is very important and as there are a lot of roof materials out there such as asphalt shingle, metal roofing and ceder shake, it is important to choose the best one for your home. Something that will assist in this decision making process is considering the climate that you will live in.  


And last but not least are the walls which hold your house together. They are the last and important piece of the puzzle to hold your house together. There are two different types of wall systems to choose from, one is load-bearing and the other is non-load bearing or framed walls. Sometimes builders provide the options for both if you’re working under budget.  


So in this post we have outlined what makes a home of quality nature but to add on to that and something to consider is also acquiring proper insulation to stay cool in summer and warm in the winter and in turn this will save you money. Also having the right windows installed into your home is important. There are different types of glass materials and so you should choose the right windows for your home based on the climate you are living in. 


To conclude this blog, Quality homes are homes that are built with the right foundation, walls and roofing materials. Get this right and you’ve got yourself a quality home.
