Building Envelope

The Zip system will reduce possible opportunities for water and air penetration that can exist through standard installed building envelopes.  This system provides a manufacturer’s 30 year warranty which is a highly significant protection for our Echo clients who would like to upgrade to this system. 

Thermal protection is very important and R19 wall and R38 attic insulation is a standard for all our homes, not an upgrade.

Echo Custom Homes Roof decking features radiant barrier as a standard which adds to the protection of the home against the Texas heat! We conduct blower door testing on all our homes to monitor and reduce the amount of all important air changes per hour.

What does this mean for our clients…. Your home is built Better, is more Protected and because of these efficiencies, becomes much more cost effective to heat and cold.

Echo Custom Homes offers an upgraded building envelope option for our Custom Home and Remodel/Renovation clients. Click on the video below to learn more!
