Why Build NEW?

Top 10 Reason's to consider Building New Construction in Rochester MN

Design: Having the ability to customize home built to meet your family's need & lifestyle down to the size # of rooms.

Endless options in style and design: (Cabinets, Flooring, Lighting, and Appliances) New homes offer endless options in style and design of cabinets with several types of woods, finishes, and surface tops to select from. The newest materials for floorings including stone, tile, wood, and carpets, encourage the personal customization in new homes. New appliances and lighting styles have expanded features and continue to become more energy efficient from each year.

Energy Savings:  More Insulation: By using 2x6 walls, with better and more insulation, new homes include the latest technology for energy efficiency. Featuring R-40 insulation in the attic as well as sealed air barriers throughout the house, new homes offer increased temperature control. Codes continue to change & some of the recent changes have made impact on what you might think you thought was the standard.

Safety: New homes are built to the Minnesota State Building Code. The code is updated every few years to insure that new homes continually improve in terms of safety from year to year.

Windows and Doors: Windows – The beautiful way to save energy! High performance glass, provides benefits beyond dual-pane or triple-pane glass & can reduce energy bills up to 25%. Fiberglass door systems offer 5x's the insulation value of a wood door & won’t rot, crack, or split like real wood.

Siding: Low maintenance and maintenance free Vinyl, Steel, and Cement Fiber sidings encasing new homes offer durability, exceptional weather resistance, and a heightened curb appeal through personalized color schemes.

Engineered Wood: Floor & wall sheathing, along with I-Joists and laminated beams, provide an increased strength in the soundness of new homes. Engineered lumber has several other benefits in that it is environmentally friendly, and won’t warp, twist, or shrink reducing squeaky floors and costly drywall repairs. The availability of longer lengths and deeper joists of engineered wood offer designers the freedom to create more open spaces by lessening the need for walls.

Garages: (Who doesn't like a big garage!)  Larger garages (One of my personal Favorites!) standard to new homes, are sized to each buyer's needs and can accommodate cars, trucks, boat and toys. New homes are often completed with finished, heated garages with a multitude of storage options.

Less air & water infiltration: With exteriors wrapped in housewrap, new homes have a reduced level of air infiltration. Housewrap is also integrated into the flashing around each penetration point of the house, which prevents damage caused by moisture to the home. Recent MN codes in 2015 have required HVAC ductwork to be sealed & tested for leak improving the efficiency on a noticeable level.

Warranty: New construction warranty in Minnesota is called a 1 -2-10 warranty. Minnesota state statutes require this warranty as a minimum level of protection for consumers. Builders of a new home must provide a 1 year warranty on the entire home, 2 years warranty on systems and 10 years for the ‘major structural’. The actual language from the Minnesota state statutes on new home warranty outlines the three phases like this: ( 1 ) During the 1-year period warranty date the dwelling shall be free from defects caused by faulty workmanship and defective materials due to noncompliance with building standards. ( 2 ) During the 2-year period warranty date, the dwelling shall be free from defects caused by faulty installation of plumbing, electrical, heating, and cooling systems due to noncompliance with building standards. ( 3 ) During the 10- year period warranty date, the dwelling shall be free from major construction defects due to noncompliance with building standards. Warranties (survive the passing of title) this is stated & means the warranty stays in effect for the home even if the property is sold and title is transferred to a new owner. Builders have a ‘right to inspect’ the defects after a buyer has informed them in writing about the problem. Home remodelers are also subject to warranty responsibilities. A common question: “What happens to the warranty on my new home if the builder goes bankrupt or out of business?”. - There is a fund called The Contractor's Recovery Fund, established to provide compensation to homeowners with a claim against a licensed builder who is no longer in business and has no assets. There are limits on these funds & the homeowners recovery could reduced or prorated if multiple claims are made on the fund. If you would like to view some models feel free to contact us.
