Build

From the use of high-quality building materials to our frequent quality control checks, you can be confident in knowing every piece of your home is tended to with utmost attention and care. You’ll get detailed updates on the progress every week.

Quality Control

Every builder talks about quality. We not only demand it, but we also verify it with regular quality checks performed by our construction and design team leaders. This well defined process ensures consistency and assures our homes will stand the test of time.

Quality also entails paying attention to what you can’t see. Our quality principles result in healthier, more efficient and superior living environments. These principles are embodied in our High-Performance Home Standards™, which notably sets our homes apart from the rest.

OUR HIGH-PERFORMANCE HOME STANDARDS FOCUS ON:

  • Structural strength
  • Air quality
  • Sound transmittance
  • Energy efficiency
  • Water intrusion
  • Reduction of environmental impact

Green Building and Energy Conservation

At Dillard-Jones Builders, we are proud to offer design and construction services that promote healthy living, protection of the environment, and lower energy costs. Some of our past experience includes: Energy Star, EarthCraft House, and CGP.

Dillard-Jones Builders has long incorporated “smart” green building products and practices. At a minimum all our houses will meet Energy Star Standards, we will recycle up to 75% of our construction waste, and use other smart green features such as Low-E windows, high-efficiency heating and cooling systems, tankless water heaters, air sealing, engineered structure systems, and recycled sub-flooring into all new construction. These practices are always combined with our low-impact site development and preparation practices.

Many of our homes also follow a certified green building program tailored to meet the client’s needs and most of these projects include: foam envelopes, solar hot water, geothermal, rain water collection systems, low VOC interior products and finishes, ands use of recycled and reclaimed materials.

ENERGY STAR® Builder

In 2008, Dillard-Jones Builders adopted ENERGY STAR® standards for all new construction. Homes that earn the ENERGY STAR® rating must meet guidelines for energy efficiency set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. ENERGY STAR® qualified homes are at least 15 percent more energy efficient than homes built to the 2004 International Residential Code (IRC), and include additional energy-saving features that typically make them 20-30% more efficient than standard homes. ENERGY STAR® qualified homes can include a variety of energy-efficient features, such as effective insulation, high performance windows, tight construction and ducts, efficient heating and cooling equipment and ENERGY STAR® qualified lighting and appliances.

Energy Star IAP. The Indoor Air Package specifications have been developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to recognize homes equipped with a comprehensive set of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) features. Homes that comply with these specifications and are verified with a completed Indoor Air Package Verification Checklist can use the “Indoor Air Package” as a complementary label to ENERGY STAR for homes. Only ENERGY STAR qualified homes are eligible for this label.

Certified Green Building Professional

Dillard-Jones Builders was one of the first area builders to embrace the NAHB’s program of Green Building as the base standard for all homes. We have experience with many other programs so this is only our base offering.

EarthCraft House Certified

In 2009, Dillard-Jones Builders, LLC incorporated EarthCraft House into our Green Building programs. EarthCraft house combines the best of energy savings practices with healthy home standards and better natural resource utilization requirements.

LEED-Certified

LEED is a nationally recognized, third-party certification system that’s based on measurable results. As such, LEED recognizes the highest quality in green homebuilding. LEED-certified homes are energy efficient, use non-toxic building materials, are water-smart, and respect the environment in which they’re constructed.

LEED was created and is administered by the U.S. Green Building Council, a nonprofit environmental organization with more than 14,000 member organizations dedicated to sustainability in building design and construction. The certification system has been in use for more than seven years in commercial construction, and includes more than 3.2 Billion square feet of real estate currently seeking LEED certification.

Ground Breaking Ceremony

We like to celebrate the start of every new home with a special ground breaking ceremony. Imagine everyone on the team—on your homesite—celebrating with you!

Our entire Design-Build-Dwell team believes that building your custom, luxury home should be an enjoyable, fun experience that makes you happy.
