Green Building

Our emphasis on Green Building is the right thing to do for environmental sensitivity, support of global warming initiatives, and to lessen the dependence on foreign oil. Our dedication to efficient home energy usage produces lower utility costs and higher quality for added home value. We are constantly improving every home we build with enhanced energy efficiency for every homeowner. Here are just a few reasons why Craftmark is simply a better brand of townhome:

  • Independent Testing:
    • Each home is rated by an independent EPA certified 3rd party inspector. Each home is stringently tested for air infiltration and HVAC system performance utilizing precise testing methods.
  • Appliances:
    • For example, Energy Star qualified dishwashers use at least 41% less energy than the federal minimum standard for energy consumption, and much less water than conventional models.
  • Windows:
    • Energy efficient Low E/Argon windows lower energy bills and protect from cold and heat, while also reducing condensation and interior fading.
  • Door & Skylights:
    • Low E doors and skylights are independently certified to perform at levels that meet or exceed strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Department of Energy.
  • HVAC:
    • With as much as half of the energy used in your home going to heating and cooling, qualified high-efficiency 13 SEER rated HVAC units can save up to 20% on heating and cooling costs.
  • Brick & Stone:
    • These natural materials are acquired within a 500 mile radius for minimum use of fuel.
  • Cabinets:
    • These are certified under the Environmental Stewardship Program, with a commitment to the responsible use of resources through sound environmental management and sustainable practices with certification based on compliance of 18 different criteria in 5 areas.
  • Carpet Pad:
    • Manufactured without CFCs consisting of recycled materials.
  • Energy Efficient Feature:
    • These include air sealing & tight construction, increased insulation & energy efficient windows, appliances, HVAC, exterior doors & lighting.
  • Interior Doors:
    • These are made from sawmill chips and utilize 100% phenolic resins, meeting the strictest formaldehyde emission levels and contributing toward a LEED credit.
  • Landscaping:
    • “Xeriscaping” by using native and regionally appropriate trees and vegetation requiring less watering, fertilizers, herbicides and naturally complementing the natural setting.
  • Lumber:
    • Much of our lumber is derived from a 500 mile radius, minimizing fuel costs.
  • OSB:
    • Our sheathing is manufactured from a wide range of fast growing species and from relatively small trees.
  • Paint:
    • Low VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) Emissions.
  • Plumbing:
    • Our high-efficiency toilets use significantly less water than previous
      3.5 gallon toilets.
  • Trusses:
    • Utilize pre-manufactured low VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) building components certified by the Sustainable Forestry Initiative under NAHB Model Green Homebuilding guidelines.
  • Seeding & Sod:
    • This contributes to our Green program through reclamation on all of our sites.
  • Siding:
    • Vinyl siding saves money on maintenance and uses recycled materials.
  • Recycled Construction Debris:
    • We are participating in an innovative, new program to recycle construction site debris.
