THE VIP DIFFERENCE
Leaders in Energy Efficiency
You're interested in a VIP Home. Now it's time to learn why there is no better value. Study this page and you will see why VIP Homes are not only durable and built to last but that they will pay for themselves over time. Listed below are several included features that VIP offers. Shop around and see if you can find another builder who matches up. We are still looking.
Cathedralized Attic Insulation - VIP
installs foam insulation adjacent to the roof. This is superior to R-30
ceiling installations because it provides a semi conditioned space in
the attic. The seal it provides also reduces
the amount of dust and pests that can infiltrate your attic which is
found in traditional installations.
2 x 6 Construction - The 5.5 inch cavity of a 2 x 6 wall provides an R-19 value(the higher the r-value the more energy efficient) while the traditionally installed 2 x 4 provides only a 3.5 inch cavity and an R-13 value. Some studies show that it takes just 3 years to recoup the extra money spent to pay for the 2 x 6 construction.
Blown Insulation in the Walls - While 2 x 6 walls make an R-19 value in the cavity possible the blown insulation ensures that the value is true. Blown insulation achieves this because unlike fiberglass batts it does not allow any voids or gaps. Other advantages of blown insulation include it's sound deadening capabilities and the pest deterance that the boric acid provides.
Higher Plate Heights - Walk into a VIP Home and you will immediately notice higher and more spacious ceilings.
42" Upper Cabinets at Kitchen - Since most builders include a 30" cabinet you will get 12" more of cabinet storage in your VIP kitchen. That is 33% more cabinet space than a typical tract builder. Please check with your sales agent to make sure this is a standard feature in your community.
Deeper 3 Car Garages - Many of VIP's standard garages are 21' to 24' deep. That is about 3' - 6' deeper than a tract home. Suburbans and trucks are welcome here! Please refer to the floorplan for the particular depth of your VIP Garage.
Washable Paint - We put a satin/eggshell paint on our walls to keep your walls looking nice and new. Most builders settle for flat paint. Flat paint is notorious for leaving marks with every touch.
