Graduate Master Builder Designs Durable, Energy-Efficient Homes
Greg Alford, owner of Alford Homes, L.P., has 38 years of experience in the luxury home building business. According to Alford, his success has been focused on constructing timeless, classical designed homes with building materials and products that help provide lasting value to his homeowner’s.
”It’s important for me to stay up to date with current industry trends, and I’m always looking for opportunities to gain additional expertise in home building. Becoming a Graduate Master Builder was incredibly rewarding,” Alford said. It’s a designation he’s proud of which speaks to the high standards of building practices and materials he considers with each new home.
The Goal: To provide homeowners an energy-efficient home that is protected from water and air infiltration with a proven system. “When we wrap our homes with DuPont™ Tyvek® it’s not uncommon to achieve a HERS Index Score of 59,” said Alford. “Keep in mind we are building large, luxury homes. We credit Tyvek® for helping us optimize our energy performance while also protecting our walls from unwanted moisture intrusion.
The Solution: The team at Alford Homes has attended numerous building science seminars detailing different products that are new to market and claim to meet or exceed industry performance standards and energy codes. “We strive to distinguish our company as a builder homeowners can trust to have long-term durability and energy-efficiency as a priority,” explains Alford. “I’m convinced that for the ease of install and cost compared to other products that the DuPont™ Tyvek® system works, and provides the quality and durability I’m looking for.”
