A decade ago, we made a very important decision as a building company-a decision which changed how we build each of our custom homes. We wanted to differentiate ourselves from the competition but most importantly, we wanted to provide higher-performing homes for our clients and for the environment. So, we got to work. We researched vendors and programs, studied qualifications, earned certifications, and became an expert in our field-all with the intention of benefitting those who have chosen to become Homes By Dickerson homeowners.
Over the last 10 years, we have continued to embrace high-performance green building, earning us recognition as a 2018 National Green Building Standard (NGBS) Green Partner of Excellence, 2018 Major Achievements in Marketing Excellence (MAME) Best Green Home award winner, and a 2018 Market Leader Award from Energy Star (just to name a few!).
Homes By Dickerson is also honored to be a leading high-performance builder with the most single-family homes certified to the NGBS in the country*. As stewards of our client’s investment, we are dedicated to providing quality homes that offer savings, health, comfort, and sustainability. Building to the NGBS standard requires more than checking a box for energy standards, it means that our homes are designed and constructed to meet a minimum number of criteria in water efficiency, home site design, sustainable materials, indoor air quality, and homeowner education to achieve certification. As Jon Showalter, Homes By Dickerson COO, mentions in our new high-performance video, we just do not know how to build any other way.
We know that high-performance, green building does not resonate with everyone. Let’s face it-there is a lot of technical jargon that is not very sexy and it does not give you the cheapest per square footage cost. What it does give you is quality and peace of mind. The bottom line is that when you purchase a Homes By Dickerson home you are getting more than just a custom design from an incredibly talented team of individuals. You are in fact purchasing a home that can save you money on your monthly utility bills, provide better air quality for your family, and is kinder to our environment.
