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

I have done several projects with RValue homes, dating back to 2007 up to our current project. Jake's (RValue's) professionalism and knowledge of ICF construction is second to none in Michigan. His block selection, timeliness and attention to detail ensure a quality project. If ICF is in your future, RValue should be as well.

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.

Hey Jake, how's everything going? We finally live in our home - just moved in Labor Day! It's wonderful to live here. Somewhat surreal also. I still have a ton of things to finish on it, but we're in and it's great. I have always found you and your approach to your work to be intelligent, mindful, efficient, thorough, courteous, collaborative and professional. I'm happy to tell anyone who asks.  Thank you, Jeff

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.

Jake, Yeah, this time of year, passive solar shows its worth, as the sun will heat the house up into the mid to upper 70s (I never find out how hot, since Faye opens windows and doors at around 76 degrees). At night, the honeycomb shades slow heat loss so that we end up heating for fewer hours through the nights. And the overhangs prevent overheating from May through August, so it's a comfortable house.

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.
