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 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.

R-Value was a major subcontractor on a project of mine (I am a general contractor). This was a 4,000SF custom home new-build. R-Value provided ICF foundation, flatwork, framing and deck construction on the project. All of their work was excellent . Jake is highly experienced, well organized and a man of his word. The project was relatively detailed and a bit unique, and not surprisingly there were a few unexpected twists along the way. Jake and I were always able to agreeably sort out the implications on work flow, cost, etc.  The end result was a beautiful, well constructed and efficient new home for the homeowner. R-Value had a significant, positive impact on this result and I fully expect to hire them again.  PS - If you have not used ICF foundations before, I can just say that I love them because, in my opinion, they provide a highly insulated and "tight" building envelope, sound insulation from exterior noise and better engineered foundation wall system.

Jake, I didn't properly thank you. The driveway and stairs are spectacular. Thanks.

Walls look awesome! Thank you so much. Not sure we'll know how to frame on such square walls? 🙂

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.

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.

Jake, Yalanda and I want to let you know how impressed we are with you and your crew.  Your work ethic is to be commended! Thank you for your labor and excellent craftsmanship. Yalanda told me that the garage pour has been put off until next Monday.  Sorry that we will miss that.  Would have really like to see how you accomplish the slope needed for proper drainage out of the garage since no flow drains are allowed.  No need to explain… Thanks again for working with us.

Jake has worked on numerous homes that I have designed. He is one of the most knowledgeable ICF contractors I know. I had a chance in 2007 to help build a home I designed and Jake was the ICF contractor on the project, while on this project I learn more from him about ICF construction than anyone else in the industry. I would highly recommend him as your go to source for anything to do with ICF construction.
