WHO SETS THE STANDARD? THE BUILDER OR THE HOMEBUYER?

WE THINK BOTH.

Setting the

Standard

Building Smarter in Lexington with

comfort built

We asked, “could we build homes that save homebuyers money every month from lower heating and cooling and maintenance costs? And, at the same time, could they still be beautiful and comfortable?”

This we knew: What everyone else is building has never been good enough for us. The old way might meet building codes, but it didn't meet our craftsman code of excellence. So, we rewrote the definition of what comes standard in a James Monroe Homes ComfortBuilt® home. Through Owens Corning's Building Science and James Monroe Homes’ craftsmanship, we've made a higher standard a reality. The result is a smarter way to build – a ComfortBuilt® home.

At James Monroe homes

we use exceptional materials to achieve

extraordinary results

We collaborated with Owens Corning Building Experts, the PINK® insulation company, and they shared with us over 50 years of research and development. They shared their building science. We asked hard questions. And we saw the proof. Homes built using building science and outstanding products outperform and outlast homes built the old-fashioned way.

Because we wrap many of our homes in Owens Corning FOAMULAR Extruded Polystyrene (XPS) Rigid Foam Insulation, our ComfortBuilt homes are cozy and comfortable year-round. They’re sealed from the outside, protecting your home against air infiltration, moisture intrusion and all the while ensuring your home value. Say goodbye to high heating and cooling bills. You’ll actually find yourself saving money every month. Money that you can spend on more important things like that dream vacation – with or without the kids!
