Detailed Workmanship

When you decide to work with CRV Homes as your green, custom home builder in the Houston area, you soon understand what separates us from so many other builders.  Our building standard requires distinctive workmanship and construction specifications which are the building blocks for each of our homes. This ensures ensures that each custom built home maintains its structural integrity and efficiency for years to come. 

Please see the list of features below included in the Quality Detailed Workmanship of our homes...

Site Specific Engineered Foundations

Every foundation CRV Homes constructs was first designed by a professional engineer specific to your property. This standard practice at CRV Homes ensures a more reliable foundation for the years ahead. All foundations also come with a 10 YEAR WARRANTY!

Structural Integrity & External Sheathing

CRV Homes sets the standard and covers all exterior walls with 7/16" OSB Sheathing providing an abundance of added rigidity to the structure. Many Builders use a cardboard like material known as ThermoPly - don't be fooled. A full plywood wrap also reduces noise transfer.  

Advanced Framing Techniques

Structural integrity, energy efficiency, waste reduction: the advantages of advanced framing.


Advanced framing, also known as optimum value engineering (OVE), is a system of construction framing techniques designed to optimize material usage and increase energy efficiency. CRV Homes utilizes these techniques where and when feasible and exceeds industry standards by using high quality No. 2 Grade Lumber.

Radiant Barrier Roof Decking

The original, #1 brand of radiant barrier sheathing, LP® TechShield® Radiant Barrier Sheathing reduces monthly cooling costs by blocking up to 97% of the radiant heat in the panel from emitting into a home’s attic, lowering attic temperatures by up to 30° F.

PEX Plumbing (Grade "A")

PEX Piping (AKA the cross-linked polyethylene pipe) comes in 100 ft. flexible rolls which allows our plumbers to to complete installation with fewer joints and fittings. PEX has a lower freezing temperature, is expandable and provides cleaner water to your home than copper or CPVC.

Lew Emissivity Windows

CRV Homes uses double pane, Low-"E" (Emissivity) windows with vinyl frames allowing the light in, but keeping the heat out. Our windows have a special coating that reflects infrared light and keeps heat inside during winter and outside in summer.

A Lot is Riding on Your Subfloor

CRV Homes offers High Quality and sustainable Bamboo Hard Wood Floors standard. Underneath these floors is our Subfloor which is build with 1 1/8" AdvanTech® flooring for award-winning performance you can rely on. Specifically engineered to combine industry-leading strength, superior moisture resistance and installation ease, AdvanTech flooring is the FLAT OUT BEST™ for a quiet, stiff floor.

 
With an industry-leading warranty and unmatched 500-day no-sanding guarantee, AdvanTech® flooring is the flooring panel that we trust. It’s engineered for superior strength, moisture resistance and quality so you can build the quiet, stiff floor our homeowners demand. Because we build with the award-winning industry-leader rest assured you’ll get the most from your floors and everything you build on top of them.

Heating and Cooling

CRV Homes installs 16 SEER (gas) Air Conditioning & Heat systems in all homes. This system includes the air handler, furnace, and condensing unit.

Roofing & Attic Ventilation 

Less than an inch in height, this molded, high-impact copolymer shingle-over ridge vent permits capping of the ridge with shingles like the rest of the roof. CertainTeed Ridge Vents are the most efficient and effective systems you can install. Works year-round to ventilate the attic. Provides evenly distributed ventilation along the entire underside of the roof.

LED Lighting

CRV Homes uses LED lighting to reduce energy usage, generate less heat and last at least 5X longer than conventional bulbs. In fact , in most fixtures there is no bulb at all so you will only very rarely be changing light bulbs.

Insulation 

CRV Homes uses blown-in fiberglass insulation (R-13 at exterior walls, R-30 above conditioned space) to help reduce your energy bills and maximize the energy efficiency of your home. It also makes your home more comfortable year round while reducing noises from outside and also inside. It aids in improving the performance of your air conditioner and protects against air and moisture infiltration for a healthier environment.

Roofing Shingles 

CRV Homes uses algae-resistant 30 Year Architectural shingles. These shingles are made with a blend of surface granules that includes numerous copper-containing granules. Copper possesses natural anti-algae properties, and the copper in the granules is gradually released over time to provide reliable, long-term protection from algae formation to help a roof maintain its true luster.

Common Sense Green Building

Our commitment to environmentally-friendly construction contributes toward the preservation of your family, your environment, and your future. At CRV Homes, we have the capacity to build a 100% green home utilizing everything from solar power to bamboo flooring—but some of these choices do not always make financial sense. So we’ve chosen to take a more balanced, cost-effective approach that blends quality design and construction with eco-friendly products and building methods.
