How Are Our Homes Built To Last?

March 29, 2023

A New construction home is a big investment, so of course you’d want it to last for years to come. You can trust McKee Builders because when we say we build our homes to last, we mean it! We have stringent home-building guidelines and use tried-and-true best home-building practices followed by independent inspections and testing from certified professionals. This means you can be confident that things were done right, and enjoy the peace of mind that your home will last for generations to come. Here are some of the features and details that showcase how our homes are built to last.

Quality Built Homes Inside & Out

It’s not news that McKee Builders builds impeccable quality homes inside and out.  We include many unique features that other builders charge extra for, such as PEX Plumbing Systems. Why PEX?

  • PEX can expand to twice its size and then contract, while copper can burst.
  • PEX operates on a Manabloc manifold system, which saves energy since it has one continuous run. 
  • PEX is easier to manage, allowing you to turn the water off at a designated area.
  • PEX gives you cold and hot water instantly and is more efficient. 
  • PEX offers more convenience and peace of mind.

If you’ve ever owned an older home with a basement, you may have avoided going down there at all costs because of the dampness and strange smell. Luckily with McKee’s Delta®-MS Waterproofing feature, you won’t have to worry about a damp basement ruining your opportunity for extra living space again.

We accomplish this incredible feat through technologically advanced materials and innovative building techniques. We use Delta®-MS Waterproofing, a uniquely shaped air-gap membrane that is installed around the entire perimeter of your concrete foundation, draining water away and protecting walls from moisture. This is a high-performance material that keeps basements completely dry and mold-free for the life of your home.

With Delta®-MS Waterproofing and McKee Builders’ installation expertise, even if a crack should appear in your foundation wall from the house settling (which is completely normal), your basement remains water free. Any incidental moisture is immediately drained to the footer drain, causing no harm or damage to the walls.

In addition, McKee homes provide wall-to-wall comfort with a cooling and heating system that offers consistent temperatures from room to room and a constant supply of fresh, filtered air reducing indoor pollutants, dust, pollen, and other allergens. There are many features included in our installed HVAC systems that efficiently deliver you and your family comfort such as:

  • A Zone Damper System
  • Hard Ducted Returns
  • Well-Sealed Ducts
