Rarely will you find someone who just likes to pay more than he needs to. Our homes cost more than most any other home out there. The natural question is why do we have any clients at all?

I wish I could give you the answers, but in reality, my clients need to speak for themselves.

Below are some of the common and uncommon reasons our clients have chosen to work with R-Value Homes:

Rhonda was impressed with what we did on a previous project

Woody wanted a comfortable basement

We simplify the construction process

Lynette’s previous home burned extremely quickly, so she appreciated the 3-4 hour fire rating of the ICF walls.

Tom and Heather had spent too many years in low quality homes, it was time for something nice

Cliff and Darlene had a bad experience with a previous builder

John T. was on a fixed income, and wanted to protect himself from rising energy costs

Shorter construction schedule

James would be including utility bills in the rent, so he wanted to lower them drastically

Ryan wanted stucco walls

Their previous home was cold and drafty

John Z. wanted to begin construction in the winter

Dr. B. appreciated the significantly reduced sound transfer between rooms

Don wanted an indoor pool, and was concerned about moisture damaging wood or metal walls and roofs

Joe had been in a friend’s R-Value home and loved it

Missy wanted to ensure proper integration of ICF with the rest of the home

The low-maintenance, high durability, and natural beauty of colored concrete floors appealed to their practical side

Jake was the concrete specialty contractor on my ICF home, the 2nd LEED-H Platinum house in Michigan. I worked with Jake and his R-Value crew as the least-skilled part of the contractor's (Hybrid Homes) team, and can attest to the skill and effort that they brought to the job. I have a complete slide-show of the construction process.

Jake and his crew work in a professional and trustworthy manner. In my dealing with Jake, I can count on his honesty and attention to budget and time schedules. When installing our products I am confident that Jake will do things with a high degree of accuracy and follow design details thoroughly. He invest in education for himself and his team so they can continue to improve their skills, while providing added value to each customer that chooses to work with R Value Homes.

Hi again Jake. Our experience working with you was very pleasant and we love the house.  We were there in November for a month and lost power for a couple of days.  We used a generator to run the basics but did not use it for the geothermal system.  Even with no heat the temperature in the house only went down about 2 degrees over the two day period.  It was very comfortable and we were thrilled.

I really don't think it matters nearly as much when you start building with ICFs. We started in the middle of December 2008 during some pretty heavy snow storms. We were dried in by the end of January, and that included lumber delays caused by the bankruptcy and closing of a major lumber distributor. We had three 50 degree days in a row in February and were able to shingle the roof, which was a very cut up design. I spoke with the couple earlier this week and they have yet to turn the heat on--it is still in the 70's in the house.

It's wonderful to live in our home (even though much work remains for me to complete on it).  Our energy bills are lower on this house than on our old home which is 1/2 the size and sits vacant 🙂  Thank you.

We love the house and wouldn’t build with anything but ICF’S.  The  two things that amaze us most about that house are how quiet it is and how stable the temperature and humidity is.

Jake has always been my go to guy when I need an experienced ICF installer. I have complete confidence that Jake will deliver when he takes on a project. The job will be done right and on time. He cares about the quality of his buildings and it's clearly evident that his experience will save the owner money but no short cuts will be taken if workmanship is sacrificed.

Everything looks great.  You’ve developed a good team and I can tell that you’ve been honing your process over the years.
