A solid Home

The homes that you purchase from Upperview Homes will always be built to a 20% better than code specifications. What does this mean for you? Compared to homes that are built up to Ontario's Standard Building Code, our homes are built with materials and construction methods that offer greater energy efficiency, an EnergyStar rating, and Savings by Design. Better than code by 20% means that you will enjoy better walls, windows, basements, mechanicals, ventilation, and much more.

Exceptional Homes Plus More

A 20% BETTER THAN CODE specification means that your home will have an EnergyStar rating and will be built according to the Savings by Design program. To accomplish this, we use building methods and materials that offer more energy efficiency in comparison to homes that are built up to the current Standard Building Code within Ontario. In the long run, this means that your home will be built to reduce greenhouse gases by 55%, which is far beyond Canada's 2030 target of 30%. Climate change is an important concern, not only in Ontario, but around the world. Having a home that can reduce your carbon footprint by an amount that exceeds Canada's target is a step in the right direction!

Verified Quality

Independent third party validations on hour homes test and confirm that we in fact do build homes that are 20% better than Ontario's' Standard Building Code.


HOME ENERGY RATINGS SYSTEM

The HERS (HOME ENERGY RATINGS SYSTEM) Scale is a standardized method of evaluating and scoring the energy efficiency of a home. The lower the score, the better the rating. An independent Energy Audit will be performed on every new Upperview Home to confirm that a 20% BETTER THAN CODE has been achieved for every home that is sold. This will be certified in writing with an Official Rating Certificate to confirm that the home you purchase features a BETTER THAN CODE designation.
