A Note from Alexander Homes
When you decide to build with us, or purchase one of our semi-custom homes you can count on most of your questions and concerns being answered personally by me. I also initiate communication with my customers, making sure that you are consistently updated on the progress and aware of any challenges. Our buyers know from the fi rst point of contact to the closing and after, that I am just a phone call away.
Features of an Alexander Home
Five Star Energy Rating
We will not settle for anything less than a Five Star energy rating for each property we put on the market or custom build. Not only will our homes save you money on energy costs, but by being built specifically for our arctic climate, they will also last longer.
High Performance Homes
By choosing Alexander Homes as your High Performance home builder you will benefit from a tremendous amount of knowledge and experience with proven products and techniques in energy conservation.
The home building process can be at times stressful and overwhelming. We are here to help your transition into your dream home, and to make it as smooth as possible. We achieve that by being very interactive and flexible with every client, and by keeping the lines of communication constantly open.
Space and Energy Saving
Space and energy saving On Demand heating and HRV systems are a standard installation in every home we build. Triple pane windows are installed throughout to prevent heat loss and to make your home more comfortable and energy efficient. Energy Conservation techniques that meet or exceed the Municipality of Anchorage (MOA) requirements.
In addition to traditional bat insulation, we use locally produced blown-in cellulous insulation This creates more complete coverage and also tends to pack better into tight spaces and crevices, such as around electrical boxes. As a result, the R-value of the insulation in the ceiling in our homes is R-60, compared to the MOA standard of R-38 and the R-value of the walls in our homes is R-21.
Foundations are insulated inside and out. It is standard in new construction to insulate the inside of the foundation walls. We take it a step further by using Rtec foam board insulation on the exterior of the block wall foundation (together with metal flashing to prevent UV degradation). This Arctic proven technique saves energy by lessening the transfer of heat from wood-to-cement-to-ground.
