It can be difficult to compare what different builders offer as standard features in their houses. Metz Homes would like to point out some of the features that differentiate our homes:

One-piece acrylic bathtubs and shower stalls

  • easy to clean and maintain (no grout cracks!)
  • will look as good as new in 10 years
  • very unlikely to leak

High quality Lennox heating equipment

  • a high quality manufacturer backed by 24 hour service availability from Bryans Fuel in Orangeville
  • high efficiency furnaces that save on heating costs while ensuring comfort

All subfloors are "glued and screwed" to floor joists

  • this should prevent floor squeaks
  • provides a stronger floor system

Exterior walls are 2 x 6 construction

  • stronger, sturdier home
  • more comfortable house because of extra insulation in thicker wall
  • quieter home because of extra insulation
  • less expensive to heat because of more insulation

R40 attic insulation

  • more comfort and less heating costs

Stick frame roof construction

  • roof is framed by skilled carpenters using individual pieces of kiln dried lumber
  • rafters and ceiling joists are closer together (16" - not 24"), creating a stronger, more durable roof
  • on certain designs, trusses are necessary. We use thicker roof sheathing and plywood clips in this case.

Windows and exterior doors are high quality all-vinyl construction manufactured by Dufferin Windows in Shelburne.

Our Upgrade Trim Package is standard

  • main windows have custom window sill
  • large 2 3/4" colonial window and door trims
  • large 4 1/8" colonial baseboards
  • all closets and archways have wood jamb and trim to resist damage from everyday use

Decorator paint included

  • all trim and doors painted white
  • all walls painted colour selected by Purchaser

Local subtrades used for most parts of the house

  • improves service availability
  • we want trades that are concerned about quality workmanship and service
