All of our homes will either meet or in most cases surpass all relevant building codes and construction standards. Based on a detailed soil sample test for your particular lot, all of our foundations are individually engineered by our Texas licensed structural civil engineer . In addition to our extensive builder warranty and state warranty covering your entire home, our foundations also carry a written ten year transferable warranty through the Residential Warranty Corporation (RWC / Home of Texas).
