Homeowners are increasingly interested in green building. But what exactly makes a home green? ENERGY STAR is a great place to start.

All homes built by Alan Fletcher Construction (both specs and custom) include features that produce a home that is generally 40% more efficient than standard homes built prior to 2013. Properly installed energy efficient improvements deliver better protection against cold, heat, drafts, moisture, pollution, and noise while offering greater durability. These homes save a significant amount annually on utility bills, while also typically requiring less maintenance costs associated with standard "non-ENERGY STAR" homes.

We meet or exceed all ENERGY STAR guidelines

ROI (Return on Investment) on cost of meeting ENERGY STAR guidelines on a 3500 square foot home built by Alan Fletcher Construction is approximately (6) years
