Radon gas is the second leading cause of lung cancer, and it can be in your home without you even realizing it. The building code is the first step to preventing these harmful gasses from entering your home, but there are things that can be done above and beyond the basic building code. By using radon mitigation products we strive to ensure your home will be safe for you and your family for years to come.
The Quickflash A/C U-C is both air and water tight making it highly energy efficient. With the ability to run lines from inside your home to the outside without the loss of excess energy Sonbuilt is proud to use both this product and the company that makes them.
Yet another thing we do to go above and beyond for our customers.
This wall features the attention to detail that we look for in a product. Consisting of two inches of graphite enhanced neo-pore on the outside, along with an additional two inches of spray foam insulation in the center of the wall, you will know without a doubt that the home is maintaining its temperature better than it would if a standard wall were in its place.
A high performance home is an air tight home. Proper air tightness will reduce the energy consumption in your home, avoid moisture related problems, and stop those uncomfortable drafts from cold outdoor air. Performing a blower door test tells us just how air tight a home is.
We use the Graf Ecobloc stormwater block to control stormwater runoff. These modules have three times the storage volume of standard drainage gravel. Using this system eliminates a significant amount of excavation and soil and gravel handling, providing greater savings than using traditional methods and materials.
We finish our insulated concrete form foundations with a self adhesive membrane called Soprema, a foundation wrap called Delta drain, and a third product called TuffX to ensure our foundations remain protected and dry. Each of these three components contribute to a solid foundation which allows for a more energy efficient home.
We called in Marshall Brothers to provide the services of their telebelt conveyor to assist in the placement of material around 3 rainwater harvesting tanks at our Abbotsford project. By using a telebelt, we can quickly and economically convey and place bulk material such as sand, gravel, and crushed rock.
We’ve put clear crush rock under the footings and the slab. We’ve sloped the excavation to one corner where the water will drain away from the foundation. The water will drain away from the under the slab and from under the footings. Now the footings won’t be sitting in water.
