Past Home Problems
Inevitably, older homes have problems. When an older home is sold, the new homeowners inherit existing and future problems. Home inspectors often do not find all of the problems. Nor can they always predict future problems. With a new home, many of these problems can be avoided. For one, the home is new- with new materials and new appliances. Secondly, many of the materials used are the latest technology, offering a better made product.
Home Feature Selection
Everyone has their own opinion and personal taste. Purchasing a new home allows homeowners the ability to select certain home features within their new home to meet their individual preferences. Whether it is a rich cherry cabinet in the kitchen or an electrical socket in the hallway, there are small, yet important options a new home buyer can select.
Current Building Standards
Today, new homes require multiple inspections throughout the building process and must meet rigorous code requirements. These requirements contribute to a safer, better built home. Fire safety, heating and cooling efficiency are just a few of the higher standards new homes require.
Less Maintenance
Timber Ridge Homes honors the New York State Builder’s Warranty and manufacturing warranties for items installed in their newly constructed homes.

Much like an Energy Star heating and cooling system, other energy star appliances use less energy that lowers the homes over all utility bills. According to www.energystar.gov, 16% of annual greenhouse gas emissions are from the energy generated within the home.
Smart Investment
Homeowners are becoming increasingly aware of the benefits of energy efficiency. Purchasing a home with an energy efficiency certification will boost the resale value.
Lower Carbon Footprint
The less energy a home consumes, the fewer emissions and pollutants released. Purchasing a new home with energy efficiency allows homebuyers to be conscious of their energy impact and ultimately lowers their carbon footprint that contributes to a healthier environment.
