SPEER & TDLR Present Free Training for Builders, HVAC Installers, and Code Officials If you are a home shopper, you should fight the urge to turn the page. This is one article you will be glad you read. If you’re a building professional that didn’t attend this training—you gave up what could’ve been a “FREE” competitive advantage. Find out why.

A

special training workshop for builders, the On-Site Field Training & Workshop for New Home Construction, took place on February 18, 2020. It included 3 hours of classroom instruction and continued after lunch on two jobsites: one with a home in the framing stage and one in the completed stage. The major subject of the training was on residential heating, cooling, and ventilation (HVAC), with an emphasis on understanding the Manual J. The on-site training covered almost all of the components of a home—including an illustration of blower-door and duct leakage testing, both of which are required by the state. Why is the Manual J important to someone looking for a home? Well, quite simply, the Manual J, which is generally prepared by the HVAC contractor, is the single most important factor in ensuring that your home’s A/C unit is properly sized to the size of the home, among other things. In short, a correctly prepared Manual J will make sure that, as a homeowner, you will save money on utilities, maintenance, and, more importantly, that your home will be comfortable. A home with an oversized A/C unit, the most common problem, will cycle on, cool the home too quickly, and shut off before it has time to remove all of the humidity in the house, thus creating a clammy interior caused by high humidity. Worse, as time passes, your utility bills will be higher, moisture problems will most likely occur, and your unit is sure to need replacement sooner. It’s important to understand that builders do not prepare the Manual J. Licensed HVAC contractors do. But builders should be able to understand the Manual J which, when you see the technical industry jargon on the Manual J, you can appreciate why training would be required in order to understand it. The builders and other professionals who attended this workshop should be commended for taking time off to learn how to ensure that their A/C units are properly sized and compliant with what is required by code. The workshop was presented by two knowledgeable and experienced speakers. First, Jason Vandever, Energy Code Program Manager from South-Central Partnership for Energy Efficiency as a Resource (SPEER), a non-profit regional energy

efficiency organization whose goal is to facilitate and accelerate adoption of advanced building systems and energy efficient products and services by providing training and other resources to the building industry professionals. Jason’s previous experience as Chief Code Inspector for a municipality in Texas was invaluable in interpreting code requirements. The hands-on training and instruction that he provided on site during the afternoon component of the workshop included a whole-house tour that was mind expanding. The mixed audience of local code officials, builders, and contractors made for great discussions and learning opportunities. Those who attended walked away with knowledge that will make a tremendously positive impact on the homes they build—a winwin for them and their homebuyers. Secondly, Bill Weatherly, Program Chief from the Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Department of Licensing and Regulation, shared his 40+ years of experience in the HVAC industry— information that went way beyond what a builder or HVAC contractor would find in a textbook. He had an eye-catching TDLR badge, but he assured us that his “investigative hat” was off for the workshop. Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) is responsible for the regulation of every occupation that requires a license in Texas to protect consumers from shoddy or unsafe work performed by untrained contractors. Now, pay attention to this. Why would a workshop with a TDLR representative be important to a builder and their homebuyer? One main reason is that like many laws, people aren’t aware of them

until they are caught breaking them. Sometimes, they may know the law but choose not to follow it. While builders are not required to have a license, many of their trade contractors are. TDLR is charged with making sure that those performing critical work—especially work that may put people at risk from injury or death such as from a fire due to faulty electrical work—are properly licensed. Of critical note: it is illegal for a trade contractor to advertise if he/she does not have a required license. Their license number must appear on their advertising. If it’s not—buyer beware. Workers without a required license mean they probably aren’t bonded or have workers compensation. If they get injured on your property, they could legally sue you for medical expenses, etc. Protect yourself. Ask to see proof of their license. And then follow up to make sure the license does not belong to another person. Go to www.tdlr.texas.gov and search their name or license number. You can also file a complaint or find out more about TDLR’s enforcement plan on its website. Look at the photos here of some of the builders, contractors, and code officials who attended the On-Site Field Training & Workshop for New Home Construction and congratulate them for investing their time to help improve the quality of their work for you. The workshop was sponsored by Magic Valley Electric Cooperative, AEP Texas, Texas Gas Service, BUILT TO SAVE™, Rio Grande Valley Builders Association, State Energy Conservation Office (SECO), and South-Central Partnership for Energy Efficiency as a Resource (SPEER).

Being told that your home is energy efficient is not the same as getting written verification from a home energy Rater licensed by the Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET). Home Energy Raters are trained home energy inspectors who use specialized equipment and software to inspect, test, and verify that a home has met the requirements of high-performance home programs like BUILT TO SAVE™.

The Blower Door Test and the Duct Blaster Test are used to calculate a home’s Energy Rating Index (ERI—also referred to as the HERS score). Like miles per gallon (MPG) which measure the fuel efficiency of a car, an ERI (or HERS) score is an excellent predictor of a home’s energy efficiency—the lower the score, the higher the efficiency.

BLOWER DOOR TESTS measure the leakiness of the home’s envelope— how much air comes in and goes out through the roof, windows, doors, and other openings in the home. Required by code after Sept. 1, 2016.

DUCT BLASTER TESTS measure leaks in the joints and seams of the ductwork in the heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) system. Required by code after Sept. 1, 2016 unless in conditioned space.

Key Questions to Ask a Builder

If you have decided to custom build your new home, the most important challenge you will have is choosing the right builder. Get this wrong and you’ll be reminded every time you have a maintenance problem in your home. At some point, you’ll have to trust you are making the right choice, but here are a few tips that can hedge your bet that you are choosing the right builder.

1

Ask questions. There is no such thing as a question that makes you seem uneducated. After all, when it comes to building a home, we are not expected to know about construction—the builder is.

2

Do your research. Today, you can find out a lot about a person or a company online. Start there and don’t forget to see if the Better Business Bureau has had any complaints reported. Ask around: talk to mortgage companies, vendors, and other new home buyers you may know who have already done the research. Check out the company’s website. Is it professional or does it reflect the company poorly? The way a company markets itself says a lot.

3

Find out how long the company has been in business. A company with a long history means it has stayed in business for a reason. This statement should not mean that a builder with a short history is a bad choice. Often, a new or startup company can be more motivated to grow their reputation as a good builder. Lastly, don’t be embarrassed to ask other builders. Their answers may surprise you.

4

When you finally meet the builder face-to-face, refer to #1 above. And pay close attention to how they react to a silly question. A good builder will answer you and encourage you to ask more. Treat this first meeting as a job interview—their job interview. Remember that you are looking for a partner—one that will have your best interests in mind, not just theirs, and one you will get along with. The key thing to look for in this first meeting is transparency. Is the builder straightforward with his/her answers? Ask them why you should choose them over another builder. Ask how they got into the building industry. In short, find out who they are.

5

Ask if the builder is building according to the state’s mandated 2015 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC). The builder may say their homes pass the city’s code inspections, but that wasn’t the question. Many cities in the Valley are not enforcing the 2015 IECC and use an older version of the code. If the homes the company that you are interviewing builds are high-performance homes certified by the BUILT TO SAVE™ program or the ENERGY STAR PROGRAM®, they are compliant—but you should ask for proof. Ask to see the certificate from these programs.

10

RGVNewHomesGuide.com

6

Ask the builder what the average HERS score is on the homes they build. If he or she does not know what a HERS score is, run away. The Home Energy Rating System score is a good indicator of how well the home will perform when it comes to energy efficiency. A home energy rater performs a blower door test and a duct leakage test after the home is completed to calculate a HERS score. These tests are mandated by the 2015 IECC.

7

Find out what type of architectural styles the builder specializes in and what price range they normally build in. Be suspicious of a builder who only builds economy homes but says they can build a high-end luxury home for you as their first project. You should make sure the builder you choose has a proven track record of building the type of home you are wanting.

8

It is one thing to talk about the history and expertise of the builder. It’s another to consider the qualifications of the contractors—the people who actually do the work. Ask about their qualifications. Find out who will be on the job site during construction, making sure the work is done properly, and who would be your contact if you have any needs or concerns during the construction phase.

The biggest question most people have is “Can I trust the builder?” As a rule of thumb, if a person is dishonest on little things, you can almost be sure they will do the same on the big ones. You want to make sure your builder will not cut any corners on your home, no matter how small. Here’s a tip: when a Parade of Homes event take place, pay attention to those builders who open their homes near the official Parade homes in order to capitalize on the traffic, without paying the entry fee. If a builder doesn’t see a problem with doing that to a non-profit Builders Association, what do you think they will do when dealing with a homebuyer? Find out if the builder is agreeable to having your new home inspected by a third-party property inspector after it is completed. A good builder will not be afraid to let someone else inspect his/her work. Builders who certify their homes in the BUILT TO SAVE™ program do this as part of the certification process and include these inspections during the construction, before the walls are put in—another great reason to make sure you choose a BUILT TO SAVE™ builder.

HOMEBUYING ADVICE

Why Buy New If you’re in search of a new home, you’re likely debating the benefits of a newly built home versus an established one. There are several factors you should consider before you start your search. Too many people pass up an opportunity to build their own home without thinking about the pros of new construction. Let us give you some thoughts to ponder.

Benefits of Building a New Home

1

Imagine for a moment you get to decide everything about your new place. These are the benefits of being able to build new and choose every aspect of your new home’s design:

EASIER TO MAINTAIN: Since everything from your roof to the HVAC system are brand new, you don’t have to worry about what will stop working. You get new warranties with new construction. This will help guard against major repair costs. It also means you won’t have to save as much money for when something like the water heater needs repair.

2

MORE EFFICIENT AND HEALTHIER: For example, take the BUILT TO SAVE™ program—you can connect with contractors who know how to build energy efficient homes. They also understand which building materials are healthier. For instance, they can help you choose low and zero-VOC (volatile organic compound) building materials and paints that are better for your indoor air quality.

3 12

FLOOR PLAN: In a new home, you get to select how you want your house laid out. If you want a formal dining room, you can have it. If you want an open floor plan with floor to ceiling windows, you get to decide that, too.

RGVNewHomesGuide.com

4 5 6

PERSONALIZED MATERIALS: A new home allows you to decide on special features. For instance, you can choose the type of flooring or countertop material you want to use.

LOCATION: New homes tend to be built in communities that are designed for lifestyles, such as proximity to parks, schools, or public transportation. That means you can choose your new house based on a neighborhood that best suits what matters to you. TIMING FOR MOVING: It takes about five to six months to complete a new home build. This will give you time to plan for your move to take the pressure off of the process.

Remember, a new home might seem to have a higher price tag, but being able to personalize your home and save money over time will be worth the cost in the long run.


HOMEBUYING ADVICE

How to Make the Most of Your Home Shopping Experience If you’re shopping for a new home, the good news is that there is one that’s just right for you. The downside is that it isn’t easy to find. The reason is that too often we can be fooled by looking at the wrong things. Homes are easy to stage to look appealing for a great first impression. Granite countertops, impressive flooring, designer ceilings, and elegant light fixtures are a few things that will tug at your heart. Yet sadly, the quality of the construction and other lasting features of a home are usually at the bottom of a sales conversation. Typically, on these subjects, a home shopper can only rely on what the home builder or sales consultant says. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Here are some key points and questions to consider before you make what will most likely be the biggest investment of your lifetime—buying a home.

CONSIDER YOUR NEEDS FIRST

You should have a good idea of what your basic needs are. In defining these, you should also consider what your needs will be as your family grows or as your lifestyle changes. Aside from your budget, the number of bedrooms and bathrooms should be the basic element that drives your new home search. Make a list of your priorities and be prepared to throw some of them out. When making the list of what you want, a good idea is also to make a list of what you don’t want. Call it your Deal Breaker list.

LOCATION

A big part of what makes a home right for you is its location. Is your homesite close to schools, work, shopping, and all the other conveniences you may need? Is the neighborhood quiet and safe for your children, and does the new home community offer perimeter fencing or a gated entrance? Does the location provide easy access to expressways or major roads? Remember that coming home is about arriving where you live—and that includes your neighborhood.

GET PRE-APPROVED FOR A HOME LOAN Getting pre-approved for a mortgage loan before you begin your home shopping is highly recommended—especially if you are serious about buying a home. The preapproval process begins with visiting a mortgage lender who will instruct you on what documents are needed to determine exactly what you can afford. Many companies offer free pre-approval services, and the process will help you narrow your search for a new home, thereby helping you avoid the heartache that comes from falling

in love with a home you cannot afford. It is important to note that the amount you qualify for doesn’t mean you should buy a home that equals that amount. Remember to consider all the hidden costs of moving into a new home, which may involve new furniture, new appliances, and moving costs. You also need to include in your budget the monthly costs of homeownership, such as utilities and maintenance.

KNOW WHAT YOU ARE BUYING

As mentioned above, don’t be taken in by a home’s beauty. Ask questions about what’s behind the walls. Is the home insulated with spray foam or batt insulation? Is the air conditioning unit sized properly for the size of the home to avoid high utility bills and an uncomfortable interior? Was the home constructed to comply with the state’s mandated 2015 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC)? Was the home built to minimum code standards or is it a high-performance home certified by the BUILT TO SAVE™ or the ENERGY STAR® programs? If it was built to minimum code standards, was it built to the 2015 code law as required by state law, or was it built to an older version of the code and not compliant? If it was certified as a high-performance home, you should be shown or given a copy of the BUILT TO SAVE™ or ENERGY STAR™ certificate as proof.

KNOW THE ENERGY EFFICIENCY YOU SHOULD EXPECT

As required by the State of Texas, every home built and sold after August 1, 2016, is required to meet the energy efficiency

standards of the 2015 IECC. Mandatory also is that every home be tested with a blower door test and a duct leakage test (unless in conditioned space) to ensure that the home meets the state’s new code law. These tests are performed by a home energy rater who calculates the home’s energy rating score (ERI or HERS score). This rating is an excellent predictor of the home’s projected energy efficiency and will tell you what to expect in utility usage and costs. It is important to know that not all the municipalities in Texas are enforcing the state’s 2015 IECC code, so ask before you buy. The best advice is to look for a BUILT TO SAVE™ or ENERGY STAR® certified home. Only then will you know for sure that what is behind the walls was inspected and tested by a third-party home energy rater and that the home’s construction complied with the 2015 IECC state law.

DO YOU BUY A NEW OR EXISTING HOME? This is a question that will most likely be determined by your budget. While new homes are typically more expensive, there is no doubt that if constructed correctly, a new home is the best option. New construction materials and processes along with new technology and superior energy efficiency construction are a few of the reasons that make new construction the best option. Most important, with a new home, you will have the option of customizing it to fit your needs—exactly. The Rio Grande Valley is an area of the country that has many talented custom home builders ready to build your dream home. However, whether you are buying a new or existing home, remember to ask questions. Don’t assume that every home is built the same way. They are not.

Smart Home, Smart You!

What do the rich and famous have in common? Most all of them have a home that has been updated with complete automation and “smart home” technology. The good news: you too can now have a “smart home”!

S

o first, what is a “smart home”? It is one where extravagant entertainment, state-of-the-art security, smart lighting, irrigation, and even your hot tub and coffee maker are all seamlessly integrated into systems that are controlled remotely by automation under one single app. The automation is in the hands of the homeowner and customized to their exact desires. With today’s technology, you will be amazed at how easy it can be to enjoy the ultimate automated experience, whether you live in an existing home or planning to build a new one. From waking up every morning to your favorite tunes while the shades open slowly and your coffee starts brewing, to monitoring your energy consumption, to setting the mood for “date night” with a pre-defined scene, to clearly viewing 4K security camera footage at any time.

WHICH ARE THE ORGANIC BANANAS? Exactly. It’s hard to know without a label. That’s the same problem people have when they are shopping for a quality-built, high performance home. One that will provide a comfortable interior along with superior energy efficiency, durability, and peace of mind. That’s why BUILT TO SAVE™ was born, to differentiate superior homes that are better for you from those built to minimum code standards. To assist BUILT TO SAVE™ with its mission, the New Homes Guide will now require that its builder advertisers be enrolled in the BUILT TO SAVE™ or another high-performance home program. Our goal is to make it easier for our readers to identify those builders who go above and beyond minimum code requirements to build a superior highperformance home. If we want to help our homebuyers make better homebuying decisions–it would be bananas not to do this.

2020 RGVBA Parade of Homes April 18-19 & 25-26 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Parade of Homes COVID-19 Update: This event has been postponed. For updates & new dates, please visit www.RGVBA.org

Sneak Preview The Rio Grande Valley’s annual Parade of Homes is just around the corner. Scheduled for the last two weekends in April (Saturday and Sunday, April 18-19 & 25-26), the 2020 RGVBA Parade of Homes will showcase some of the most stunning homes in the Rio Grande Valley. The homes will be open, with no admission fees, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. during the Parade dates.

T

he Parade of Homes will feature 38+ or more homes from some of the Valley’s finest builders who are competing for Parade awards in a variety of building industry categories. If you are shopping for a home, or planning to buy one in the future, this is one event you don’t want to miss. Parade visitors will be in for a visual treat. The Parade of Homes will include homes of all sizes, architectural styles, designs, and budgets, with locations in many new home communities throughout cities in the upper Valley. We invite you to visit these homes and take advantage of the opportunity to talk with the builders and get a personal tour of their homes. At many of the homes, you will also be able to meet on-site mortgage lenders who can help answer questions and provide you with valuable financing information. This yearly Parade of Homes event is an excellent opportunity to see the newest trends in exterior and interior designs as well as the beautiful, stylish building materials on the market today. With so many homes to see, the Parade of Homes Preview on the next pages and online will help you make the best use of your time by mapping out the routes to the homes that fit your needs the most. Of special note: you will be able to download the RGVBA Parade app to get information and driving directions for each home, and to help you keep track of the homes you like the best. The Parade app will be invaluable since, because most of the locations are new, the addresses may not appear correctly on Google maps. This year, when using the app, you as a Parade visitor will be able to rate the homes you visit, and the collected ratings will determine the winner of the “People’s Choice” Award. And, best of all, when using and rating a home on the Parade app, you will be entered to win one of three prizes to be given away at the end of the Parade—including a large-screen TV. So turn the page and start planning your Parade visits now! For more information visit RGVBA.org or call (956) 686-2932.

BUILT TO SAVE™

Makes Builders Stand Out! A home awarded a BUILT TO SAVE™ certificate allows homeowners to relax without worrying about high energy bills, poor construction, and high maintenance issues. A BUILT TO SAVE™ certificate gives homeowners (1) the confidence in knowing their home was inspected and tested by an independent RESNET-approved Rater, and (2) the happiness in knowing their home is “above code” and of superior energy efficiency and high-performance construction.

The following is a list of the BUILT TO SAVE™ homes in the 2020 RGVBA Parade of Homes.

SPECIAL SECTION

Spectacular SHOWROOMS It is no surprise that today many people shop online first. When shopping for home-building and home improvement products, that almost certainly holds true. However, the difference between shopping online and visiting a showroom that displays these products is beyond comparison. Visiting showrooms allows consumers to experience products in the real world where they can be touched and felt in order to know exactly what to expect. Whether it’s tile and flooring, lighting fixtures, or a complete home theater entertainment system, nothing is better than visiting a brick-and-mortar store where one can clearly envision and experience how products would look in a home. Best of all, most showrooms come with a staff of knowledgeable design experts and consultants that understand every individual’s needs and vision. Their years of expertise and invaluable feedback will ensure that customers make a buying decision that’s right for them. In this section, we will be sharing some of the finest showrooms available in South Texas. In the following year, we will feature their latest products and services. However, nothing beats experiencing them in person and getting an up-close view of what they offer. Our New Homes Guide team will be making frequent visits to these showrooms, and we can’t wait to share their trendiest products with our readers and social media followers. Stay tuned and enjoy our Spectacular Showroom Feature!

BOHO CHIC LIGHTING for a unique pop of wow!

From the bustling streets of Greenwich Village to the ashrams of India, the Bohemian lifestyle and far away cultures have been brilliantly translated into home décor and lighting. Whether paper shades or strings of beads, Boho Chic translates into an ethnic display of originality and texture. GLAM LIGHTING for an air of elegance and style!

2

If luxury mansions and glamorous Hollywood stars are front and center, then so too is glam lighting for the home. With an air of elegance, refinement, and class, glam lighting incorporates crystals, mirrors, chromes, bronzes, and golds. It becomes a focal point for sophistication and style.

For 20 years, Illuminations has been a Rio Grande Valley top choice for lighting fixtures, fans, and home décor accessories. Family owned and with experienced and friendly design and sales teams, Illuminations has access to over 100 suppliers for its showrooms in McAllen and Brownsville. Whether for a homeowner who needs one unique dining room light, to a commercial builder who needs multiplex lighting, Illuminations is here to help.

The Rio Grande Valley Builders Association Presents the 2019 Builder of the Year and Lester Miles Associate Member of the Year Awards As the year ended in 2019, the Rio Grande Valley Builders Association (RGVBA) members gathered, as they do every year, to honor one of their Builder members and one of their Associate members with the highest honors the Association can bestow on members: the Builder of the Year and the Associate Member of the Year awards.

Lester Miles Associate Member of the Year: Manny Gonzalez (McCoy’s Building Supply) Manny Gonzalez, employed by McCoy’s Building Supply, was the recipient of the Lester Miles Associate Member of the Year award. This award, posthumously named after Lester Miles, an associate RGVBA member who personified the virtues of generosity and loyalty, is given to a company or to an individual who possesses those qualities. And Manny Gonzalez definitely does. As a long-time member of the Rio Grande Valley Builders Association and currently as a volunteer on the Parade of Homes Committee, Manny has continually been supportive of the Association’s meetings, events, and fundraisers. His generous donations of time and talents, along with the support of his company, McCoy’s Building Supply, are instrumental to the day-to-day operations of the Association. It is members like Manny who form the backbone of the RGVBA. McCoy’s Building Supply is a 4th generation family-owned supplier of building materials and farm and ranch equipment, with over 2,000 employees and 85 stores in five states. The company is a generous supporter of non-profit organizations including Operation Finally Home; Helping a Hero; Habitat Texas; and others.

Builder of the Year: Treviño Construction Mario Treviño and Marisol Villanueva de Treviño, owners of Treviño Construction, have over 14 years in the building industry. The company is known for building some of the finest luxury custom homes in the Valley. Treviño Construction has earned a reputation for creating award-winning designs with unique, innovative materials that consistently please home shoppers. Their superior craftsmanship is visible from floor to ceiling and includes many extras that personalize a home as standard–extras that others would consider upgrades. Mario and Marisol have been active members of the RGVBA for many years. Their reliable support of the Association fundraisers, especially their commitment to participating in the RGVBA’s annual Parade of Homes, lends itself to creating the type of builder member who makes the organization stronger. We congratulate Treviño Construction on their success and commend the owners on their exemplary service to the Rio Grande Valley Builders Association. We invite you visit the team at Trevino Construction and bring your new home vision to these “visionary” experts. See page 2 for more information.
