STANDARD FEATURES

Solid Surface Countertops


Solid surface countertops survive the impact of nicks and cuts that can occur with daily wear and tear. They are remarkably durable. As a result, it’s a versatile material that is easy to live within both domestic and commercial environments. Their non-porous, seamless smooth surface does not allow liquids to penetrate, so bacteria and mold have nowhere to take root. The countertops are easy to clean and repairable with household cleaner.

Allura Cementitious Siding


Allura cementitious siding won't rot, warp, fade, burn or disappoint. Allura Fiber Cement products are made with an advanced formula that resists damage from moisture, rot, hail and termite attacks. Best of all, Allura products are suitable in even the most extreme hot and cold climates and are non-combustible.



IKO Asphalt Composition Roof Shingles with 30-Year Warranty


Asphalt composition roofing shingles can make your home stand out or blend into its natural surroundings. 3-tab roofing shingles have withstood the test of time and weather for decades. The beauty of these asphalt shingles lies in the simplicity of their design, their ability to protect your home, and in the quality of their engineering.

Energy Efficient Homes


When it comes to energy efficiency, it is easy to get wrapped up in a bunch of industry lingo and complicated ratings that few understand. Energy efficiency to us simply means saving our homeowners every month when they get their utility bills.

9' First Floor Ceilings


Each home starts with a first floor ceiling height of 9 feet that helps to increase the already spacious feeling of your home design. Volume and space are key attributes of a new custom home that you can’t find in a used home.

STANDARD CONSTRUCTION FEATURES

Average Construction: Hollow Block Walls
The Architerra Way: Solid Concrete Walls

9’ Solid Concrete Steel Reinforced Basement Walls

Solid poured concrete walls with vertical and horizontal steel rebar give you an exponentially stronger and dryer basement than stacked hollow core block walls with mortar joints. Block walls are very porous and will allow water in over time, and as you get above an 11-course block wall, your walls are even further weakened.

Average Construction: 2X4 Wall
The Architerra Way: 2X6 Wall

2X6 Wall Construction

2×6 exterior walls give your home greater structural strength and integrity. You will have a durable and sound structure that you can be completely confident in what you’re buying. This, on top of your solid concrete foundation, makes a rock-solid, high-performance wall system that shows our commitment that your home is built like a tank.
Average Construction: Foam Board
The Architerra Way: OSB Sheathing

OSB vs. Foam Board

When comparing to foam board, OSB has much more structural integrity. When siding is installed on your home, we are putting it over wood as opposed to over foam board. The stronger wall minimizes wavy siding. When foam board is used, it’s easy to puncture or break during application and therefore leaves a lot of gaps and areas for air penetration.

Average Construction: R-13 Insulation
The Architerra Way: R-21 Insulation

R-21 Wall and R-49 Ceiling Insulation

The extra thickness you get with a 2×6 wall vs. a 2×4 wall provides for a higher R value. With today’s energy costs, the increased R factor will save you money and help provide a more comfortable home.

Average Construction: Copper or CPVC Pipe
The Architerra Way: PEX Water System

PEX Water System

This is the latest in technology that brings you and your family the highest quality water for health and for performance. PEX is noncorrosive and chemical free, whereas copper corrodes over time, and CPVC uses solvents/glues that give off chemicals in your water.
