Have you ever drove through one of the areas we serve and wonder, “What in the world is that green stuff on those homes?”. You’re probably use to seeing white over green, but green means you save more green! We explored many different options and we chose to go with the ZIP System, allowing us to provide quality construction while building an efficient home. 

The ZIP System is a water resistant and air barrier that provides a protective barrier to keep air and moisture out, while providing you with energy savings and comfort in.

During construction, your home is exposed to the elements and its important to put up a resistant barrier that protects your home from water and other elements, and if you’re building in the Quad Cities or Northern Illinois, you’re likely to have a variety of elements that your home needs to withstand. Pairing this quality product with other energy efficient choices like the blower-door test or Nest thermostat, you’ll likely see great savings in energy costs.

When it comes to energy efficiency, we have found none that compare to the value the ZIP System provides. It’s just one way that you can get more with a Silverthorne home.
