How Families Qualify Where We Build

ENERGY STAR 3.0 Certified
  • Certified by an Energy Auditor
  • HVAC System efficiency tested
  • No air penetrations
  • All electrical and plumbing fixtures meet ENERGY STAR and WaterSense® standards
  • Totally encapsulated spray foam*

*Includes the attic, so entire house is treated as conditioned space.
This increases construction costs, but the energy and cost savings for our
Habitat families is measurable and significant.  

FORTIFIED Gold High Wind & Hail Protection
  • Built to IBHS FORTIFIED® Gold-Rated High Wind & Hail (Gold HWH) Standards
  • Ensures each foundation is tied to the wall framing and truss system
  • Gold HWH homes respond to high wind conditions (up to 130 mph) as a single, solid structure
  • Habitat families may qualify for discounts on their home insurance
