A Better Approach to Building Performance
Melton is committed to ensuring that your home
performs at its best. To help achieve this goal, we became
Boulder’s first remodeling firm to become Building
Performance Institute-Certified Building Analyst Professionals.
We are also one of very few Energy Star certified general
contractors in all of Colorado.
First, let's define what building performance means for you:
- It means a home that is more energy-efficient.
- It means using materials that will last longer and require less maintenance.
- It means a home that is more comfortable because the temperature and humidity levels are consistent
throughout the home and uncomfortable drafts have
- Lastly, building performance means a home that is healthier.
The indoor air quality of a performance-tuned home is not only better than in a normal home, it is generally better than the air outside.
When appropriate, a performance-designed home is crafted to be hypoallergenic. Not just because of improved air quality, but because the materials selected and used are less likely to affect chemical-sensitive household members or trap allergens that could trigger reactions like an asthma attack.
At Melton, we take a “whole house” approach to building performance. We use sophisticated equipment and processes to evaluate your home from top to bottom, including a “blower door” to test for air leaks and insulation efficiency. Based on these assessments, we will recommend comprehensive improvements that will yield the best results for you and your family. Once you select the improvements that fit your needs and budget, we will also help you implement the improvements. We make achieving better building performance easier and more convenient.
Our approach to Building Performance is combined with Value Engineering to make sure that what is done makes sense for you. We can help you determine which changes will provide you with the most value based on your needs and priorities.
Plus, Melton can make it easy to achieve both beauty and performance by improving your home’s curb appeal while completing exterior performance upgrades such as adding exterior insulation, building wrap, or thermal-insulated windows.
