CERTIFIED BUILT GREEN
Why Should I Care?
Every home Colbray builds is Certified Built Green and it's been this way since the beginning when Colbray opened back in 2007.
That means every home built since 2007 has been 3rd party energy adviser tested and has received a blower door test. Ensuring the effectiveness of our systems used and that each home is air tight, with these tests we are able to correct any issues on the spot. Our clients receive all these ratings.
The beauty in this is really in the learning, and that each home gets better and better, 13 years later we have truly honed in on exactly what it takes to build a high performance home.
Our average ratings are truly phenomenal, and something we are very proud to share. Building a home to Colbray's standard construction we are achieving blower door ratings of anywhere between .52 - 1 air exchange per hour... and this is not on a little cabin in the woods with no windows, these are large luxury homes, where plenty of large windows are a must.
Unfortunately homes just don't get tested but studies say an average home tested today would be about 3.5 air exchanges per hour.

"The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten"
