Parker Built Homes is committed to building quality custom homes and believe that your new home should be built with the best building materials available and using the most innovative construction methods and latest technologies.
Our Quality Difference
Roof and floor trusses
In order to ensure that your home’s structure is of the highest quality, the trusses we use are fully designed to carry the weight of the structure properly. They are constructed in a factory setting with the chords being machine stress rated (MSR) lumber. MSR lumber is a lot stronger and more consistent than standard framing lumber.
TechShield Radiant Barrier Decking
Radiant Barrier Sheathing is simply an aluminum foil that is joined to the underside of the roof decking, which is designed to lower the temperature in the attic by as much as 30 degree by blocking radiant heat. As a result of lowering the temperature in the attic, homeowners have been known to reduce their air conditioning costs by 17% on average.
By utilizing advanced framing we’re able to build a structurally sound home that also increases energy efficiency by using insulation material rather than unnecessary lumber. The entire-wall R-value is increased by reducing thermal bridging through the framing and maximizing the wall area that is insulated. Advanced framing techniques help reduce wasting our natural resources and can save homeowners up to 5% on their annual heating and cooling costs.
OSB Wall Sheathing
OSB sheathing is uniform, strong, and dense. It has consistent quality, without core voids and knots. And OSB used wood from small, fast growing trees, so it’s environmentally friendly, which means less waste of our resources.
This concrete is specifically designed to alleviate cracking early on, which is when 80 -100% of cracks occur. Fibermesh micro-synthetic fibers prevent of all cracks in the plastic state and the correct fibermesh concentration provides a strong concrete slab floor.
Behr Premium Plus paint is used for both the interior and exterior of our homes, and is 100% Acrylic (not vinyl-acrylic). It is regarded as one of the highest quality paints and combines both the durability and beauty homeowners demand from a paint.
Parker Built Homes offers homeowners with shingle roofing with a 30-year warranty or a 26 gauge metal roof with 40-year warranty. Either way you can have peace of mind that your new home will last the test of time.
PEX Water piping
PEX is a polyethylene tubing used in residential plumbing, which resists scale build-up and is resistant to freeze-breakage. Another fantastic quality about PEX is it’s much quieter than other piping materials.
Tyvek House Wrap
Tyvek wrap help prevent outside water from entering the walls and help to seal the home to keep outside air where it belongs. Tyvek HomeWrap is energy efficient in that it reduces your energy bill because homes stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter and dry all year round.
