HOME WARRANTY, ENERGY EFFICIENCY AND HURRICANE TOUGH
FOR YOUR PEACE OF MIND.
Each home we build comes with a full home warranty. We don’t just hand you the keys and disappear. We stand behind our work with a Maverick/Bonded Builders Home Buyers Warranty that has offered customers and their homeowners the most comprehensive warranty programs available for more than 35 years and for over 5.5 million new and pre-owned homes.
Maverick/Bonded Builders warrants structural components, and guarantees workmanship, materials and systems, so that each element of the home is covered by our experience and expertise. With additional options, like mold and water intrusion, we take peace of mind to new places…specifically, new homes and condos and even remodeling projects.
THIS IS AN ILLUSTRATIVE LIST OF ITEMS THAT MAY BE COVERED. PLEASE REFER TO THE WARRANTY DOCUMENT FOR COMPLETE WARRANTY TERMS, CONDITIONS, DEFINITIONS AND EXCLUSIONS.
RESIDENTIAL ENERGY GUARANTEE
A RESIDENTIAL ENERGY GUARANTEE® TO SAVE YOU MONEY.
Brevard’s home buyers demand energy efficiency, especially considering the extremes of Florida weather. Price Family Homes understands this and builds homes to strict energy efficient standards and guarantees them through Maverick/Bonded Builders.
Maverick/Bonded Builders only guarantees homes built by builders who construct and certify homes that meet industry standards for energy efficiency such as HERS®, Energy Star, LEED or National Green Building Standard. This means our clients will save money on utility bills…guaranteed!
WHAT IS A HERS RATING?
Developed in 2006 by RESNET, The HERS Index is the industry standard measurement of a home’s energy efficiency and is the nationally recognized system for inspecting and calculating a home’s energy performance. A certified RESNET Home Energy Rater assesses the energy efficiency of new homes and assigns them a relative performance score (the HERS Index Score). The lower the number, the more energy efficient the home. A HERS rating reveals how efficiently a home is operating, where modifications can be made for greater energy savings and can anticipate the costs of energy bills and efficiency upgrades for new homes.
The U.S. Department of Energy has determined that a typical resale home scores 130 on the HERS Index while a home built to the 2004 International Energy Conservation Code is awarded a rating of around 100. To calculate a home’s HERS Index Score, a HERS Rater performs an energy rating on a new home and compares the data against a ‘reference home’ – a designed-model home of the same size as the home being rated. A Price Family Home which scores a 60 on the HERS Index means that it is 40% more energy efficient than the baseline. A home which scores a 0 uses no net purchased energy and is considered a net zero home.
HURRICANE TOUGH HOMES
HOMES BUILT TO WITHSTAND RIGOR OF FLORIDA LIVING.
While no home is hurricane proof, Price Family Homes builds all of our homes to be hurricane resistant being able to withstand three-second gusts of 150 mph winds, and 116 mph sustained wind speeds. We build in exterior impact protection with impact-resistant windows or hurricane shutters and reinforced doors.
