Rhonda was impressed with what we did on a previous project
Rarely will you find someone who just likes to pay more than he needs to. Our homes cost more than most any other home out there. The natural question is why do we have any clients at all?
I wish I could give you the answers, but in reality, my clients need to speak for themselves.
Below are some of the common and uncommon reasons our clients have chosen to work with R-Value Homes:
Jake, I didn't properly thank you. The driveway and stairs are spectacular. Thanks.
It's wonderful to live in our home (even though much work remains for me to complete on it). Our energy bills are lower on this house than on our old home which is 1/2 the size and sits vacant 🙂 Thank you.
Jake has always been my go to guy when I need an experienced ICF installer. I have complete confidence that Jake will deliver when he takes on a project. The job will be done right and on time. He cares about the quality of his buildings and it's clearly evident that his experience will save the owner money but no short cuts will be taken if workmanship is sacrificed.
Jake has worked on numerous homes that I have designed. He is one of the most knowledgeable ICF contractors I know. I had a chance in 2007 to help build a home I designed and Jake was the ICF contractor on the project, while on this project I learn more from him about ICF construction than anyone else in the industry. I would highly recommend him as your go to source for anything to do with ICF construction.
We are pretty settled in the ICF home which you had a great hand in building. If I were to build another home, I would choose ICF all over again. Just as a matter of perspective, we have officially lived in the home since last October. We have had a chance to go through an entire year and learn about its temperature retaining and stabilizing characteristics. Here are a couple: 1. Regarding AC, we almost never turn it on. I would say it is on about 12 days in the last year. 2. Regarding heat, we have established ourselves on a budget system with the local natural gas provider. Our heating bill is $67 per month. I was thrilled with this as our home as you know is a sprawling ranch with a full 9 foot basement and about 4000 square feet per floor. 3. Although not directly related to the characteristics of ICF, all our lighting is LED. This helps keep our electrical costs low also. So for all this I thank you.
We love the house and wouldn’t build with anything but ICF’S. The two things that amaze us most about that house are how quiet it is and how stable the temperature and humidity is.
Jake and his crew did all of the concrete flat work, icf's from footings to trusses and the rough framing of our home. Jake was a great communicator, extremely knowledgeable, detail oriented, honest and fast. He achieved everything that we agreed on before the start of the project - the work to be completed, the time frame and the price. Jake resolved all obstacles that presented themselves in the course of the project quickly and to my satisfaction. If I were to do it all over again I would definitely hire Jake to do every part of the project that he was interested in.
R-Value was a major subcontractor on a project of mine (I am a general contractor). This was a 4,000SF custom home new-build. R-Value provided ICF foundation, flatwork, framing and deck construction on the project. All of their work was excellent . Jake is highly experienced, well organized and a man of his word. The project was relatively detailed and a bit unique, and not surprisingly there were a few unexpected twists along the way. Jake and I were always able to agreeably sort out the implications on work flow, cost, etc. The end result was a beautiful, well constructed and efficient new home for the homeowner. R-Value had a significant, positive impact on this result and I fully expect to hire them again. PS - If you have not used ICF foundations before, I can just say that I love them because, in my opinion, they provide a highly insulated and "tight" building envelope, sound insulation from exterior noise and better engineered foundation wall system.
