Homes Built to Last: What to Look for in a New Home Builder

When searching for a new home builder in Meridian, it’s essential to find a company that prioritizes quality construction and excellent customer service. Look for builders who incorporate these factors into building and maintaining homes that will last.

The latest in energy-efficient building practices and materials.

Homes that use advanced insulation, low-E windows, ENERGY STAR appliances, and efficient HVAC systems not only reduce energy consumption but also enhance comfort and save homeowners money on utility bills. Builders, like Brighton, who go beyond basic building code requirements to offer homes that are 20-30% more energy-efficient can provide significant long-term savings and environmental benefits.

Quality construction also means fewer maintenance issues over time. Homes built with superior materials and methods, like those constructed by Brighton Homes, are less likely to encounter common problems after 20-30 years. This longevity allows homeowners to enjoy their investment for longer without the need for costly repairs.

A proven track record and industry recognition.

A builder’s reputation can often be gauged by the awards and recognitions it has received, indicating its commitment to excellence in the industry. One notable award is the EPA’s ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year Sustained Excellence award. Brighton Homes is proud to have received the Partner of the Year award for 13 consecutive years. This prestigious accolade is given to companies that demonstrate outstanding dedication to energy efficiency and management. To earn this award, builders must consistently exceed energy performance standards and actively educate others about the benefits of the ENERGY STAR program. Continued growth and improvement in these areas are also necessary to maintain this recognition.

Dedicated customer service: through the building process and beyond.

Customer service is another crucial aspect to consider. Builders who are dedicated to serving their customers before, during, and after the construction process tend to have higher customer satisfaction ratings. Brighton Homes, for example, has earned an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau, reflecting their consistent commitment to resolving customer concerns and maintaining high standards.

Additionally, working with a builder that employs top-notch architects, designers, and subcontractors can ensure that your new home is designed and built to the highest standards. Brighton Homes is an NAHB registered Master Builder in Idaho, with over 25 years of experience building long-standing partnerships with skilled professionals, resulting in better craftsmanship and more cohesive project management.

See the difference firsthand.

Finally, visiting model homes and communities built by the new home construction company can provide valuable insight into the builder’s quality and style. Scheduling a visit to see their work firsthand allows you to evaluate the construction quality, design, and overall feel of the homes, helping you make an informed decision about your investment.
