“They just don’t build homes like they used to” is a commonly heard phrase. While often used, it is truly a misconception. Homes are built a lot better than they used to be. In fact, on January 1st a new Building Code came into effect mandating a lot of changes. Most notably are the changes to insulation values, heating and air-conditioning.
At Pratt Homes we embrace the changes even though they mean a slightly higher cost of building. Better insulation values and a tighter built home means savings for our homeowners in the long run. Buying a new Pratt Home means that you will save on your heating bill and help reduce the environmental footprint produced by your home. So before you buy, compare the many benefits of purchasing a new home with a resale home.
To comply with the new provincial building code, our new townhouses in Barrie use pink insulation board that helps seal up the home and reduce the amount of heat lost.
