With an integrated approach to design and a strict adherence to Zero Energy Ready Home (ZERH) requirements, we collaborate with you to create a long lasting, low maintenance, reliably comfortable home of your dreams. Our homes are rigorously tested and inspected to the highest performance standards; ensuring the highest quality workmanship, products, materials, and equipment to deliver unparalleled quality of construction.
Your purchase is an investment in not just the future of your family, but of the community in which you live. Our homes appraise and resell at a higher value because they are Energy Star and Zero Energy Ready Home certified. In fact, thanks to new innovations in design, our certified green homes use 60% less energy than typical new construction homes, and even more when compared to most resale homes on the market today. (Based on the HERS scale of our homes)
A scientific approach to construction combined with modern design allows our homes to utilize resources more efficiently than typical house construction. This attention and care to developing sustainable homes decreases your cost of living drastically by reducing maintenance and utility bills. The benefits to health, comfort, and sustainability that our homes of the future provide are immeasurable.
Comfort is about more than just a thermostat set-point and a basic HVAC system. Our custom homes are healthier and easier to live in from our selection of materials, advanced insulation and air sealing, air quality control, and water protection measures. Building homes well beyond local code adds a high level of comfort, energy savings and peace of mind in a low maintenance home.
Proven building practices, sustainability-focused designs, and future-forward materials create a home that outperforms and outlasts typical house construction. Enjoy reduced utility and maintenance costs, and long-lasting durable construction that remains beautiful and functional for decades. If something does go wrong, we have an excellent set of warranties in place to back you up.
Better products, such as low emission materials, a radon mitigation system, and sealed combustion appliances–along with the EPA's Indoor AirPLUS program, and an improved scientific approach to building–certified-green homes can have a positive impact on your health. Improved heating, ventilation, insulation, water protection systems, and air sealing contribute to superior air quality reducing risks and symptoms of respiratory disease, asthma, cancer, and cardiovascular disease.
We love when people ask for our certifications because we proudly stand by them. Recognized by both the US Green Building Council (USGBC) and the National Association of Home Builders (NHBA), BrightLeaf Homes only builds Energy Star certified homes that far exceed the standards of today’s market.
For us, that means that every aspect of your new BrightLeaf home has been rigorously inspected, tested, and verified to ensure that it meets strict requirements set by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). For you, the homeowner, it means peace of mind that your new home is designed and built with higher quality, better comfort, and more durability.
