Testimonials

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

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

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.

We had done a 2 story addition on our house with a full basement. R-Value Homes installed ICF walls for all of the exterior walls. They also installed the basement floor, an underground root cellar, the framing for the sub floors, interior walls and roof, and the window installation. They were professional, reliable, thorough and accurate in the estimates and billing, and provided great workmanship. Working with Jake and R-Value was easy and I highly recommend him.

Jake, I consider the experience of building my first ICF (Insulated Concrete Form) home extremely positive. In this component of home building, literally foundational, the fundamental aspects such as: plumb, square, timely, well planned, quality, all impact not only the overall quality of the home, but the ability to build upon this figurative and physical foundation. There is no down side. Cost, home performance, efficiency, longevity and quality are top of the line. To ensure all the qualities described above are incorporated in what is actually a complex and highly technical endeavor, I would again select R-Value as the ICF contractor of choice. Bottom line, I would do it all again in a heartbeat. In the meantime I look forward to enjoying all the benefits inherent to ICF construction and its many livability advantages.

We are pretty settled in the ICF home which you had a great hand in building.  If I were to build another home, I would choose ICF all over again.  Just as a matter of perspective, we have officially lived in the home since last October.  We have had a chance to go through an entire year and learn about its temperature retaining and stabilizing characteristics.  Here are a couple: 1. Regarding AC, we almost never turn it on.  I would say it is on about 12 days in the last year. 2. Regarding heat, we have established ourselves on a budget system with the local natural gas provider.  Our heating bill is $67 per month.  I was thrilled with this as our home as you know  is a sprawling ranch with a full 9 foot basement and about 4000 square feet per floor.   3. Although not directly related to the characteristics of ICF, all our lighting is LED.  This helps keep our electrical costs low also. So for all this I thank you.

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.
