Have you been struggling to solve a problem in your home?

Most problems we help with fall into four categories:

Most contractors only focus on one piece of your home - the furnace, the roof, the plumbing, etc. Often their solutions treat symptoms,not causes. Many problems in your home are caused by systemic issues. This is the field of Home Performance.

Before you waste thousands chasing symptoms, we recommend reading up on root causes.

HOW IT WORKS

We help you fix it right the first time, we are a construction manager.

LEARN

The first step is to learn, we've spent a ton of time making (hopefully) helpful and  amusing articles. If you lose interest before reading at least 4-5 pages, we're  probably not the one for you.

DEFINE

What do you want to solve? Is your house an energy hog? How leaky is it? These are  answered at our initial consultations. Solutions aren't discussed yet.

PLAN

We thoroughly look over your home (an energy audit) and make detailed plans  to solve what you want solved. We show the range of solutions from budget  to complete.

IMPLEMENT

We help you get it done, and done right, so you get results.

“Nate did an excellent job of orchestrating this project. We were so impressed with him and his meticulousness (painstakingly photo documented every inch of his audit with photos and commentary which he emailed to us for our records) that we agreed to move forward with the project. The results were a resounding success!

Our blower test went from about 5800 to 3100. Our gas bills from this most recent winter were halved. The house now keeps a constant temperature. He was always available to speak about the project, consistently polite and punctual. A real stand-up guy who ensured every detail of the project was performed to perfection. We are really satisfied with the results.”
