    Duct Cleaning

    Before you move into your new home, we clean the air ducts to eliminate any dust that accumulated during the building process, helping ensure the best air quality on day-one.

    LOW-VOC PAINT

    We use low-VOC paint, preventing allergy-causing toxins, and impacted air quality in your new home.

    MERV-11 HVAC Filter

    We only use the highest quality air filters to capture dust particles and other airborne contaminants, giving you high-quality air within the home.

    PEST CONTROL

    Bugs belong outside the home. Treatment is applied during construction, and you benefit from one complimentary pest control treatment after you move in. Only eco-friendly products are used during the treatments.

    RADON MITIGATION SYSTEM

    Your home is equipped with an active radon mitigation system that allows for Radon to flow out of your home.

    SEALED SUMP PUMP

    Every Summit home is equipped with an active sump pump and sealed lid to keep your home dry. This sealed lid works hand-in-hand with the Radon Mitigation System and poly membrane, ensuring Radon gas flows naturally out of the home.

    GREEN EDGE CARPET

    Our carpet options include those made of sustainable material, preventing unknown carpet material from impacting your air quality.

    COMPOSITE DECKING

    This low-maintenance material resists fading, staining, scratching, and mold and won’t rot, crack or warp. Perfect for years of outdoor entertaining!

    ENGINEERED HARDWOOD

    Our durable floors are resistant to changes in temperatures and keep the high-traffic areas of your home looking great. The material is finished off-site, preventing any off-gassing and improving the air quality in your home during installation.

    ECO-FRIENDLY ADHESIVES

    Our solvent-free water-based adhesives are low-VOC. Not only are these better for the environment, but they also help maintain healthy air quality within your home.

    ECO-FIRENDLY DAMP PROOFING

    Your Healthy Home starts at the foundation with top-of-the-line damp proofing, helping your home stay dry.

    WHOLE HOME HUMIDIFIER

    Your HVAC system includes a humidifier that carries moist air to every room in your home during heating seasons. This creates a comfortable atmosphere and helps your HVAC system work most efficiently.

    HOUSE WRAP

    While you can’t see it day-to-day, your home is built with this special material and prevents infiltration of air and water while letting water vapor escape. This crucial step helps prevent rot and mold inside the walls of your home, further improving the air quality in your home.

    CENTRALIZED RETURN AIR

    Our systems are set up to maintain your home’s air pressure, filter out unwanted particles and serve to save on energy costs and expenses.

    SCHLUTER® SHOWER SYTEM

    When installing a tiled shower, this integrated family of products is used to form a fully bonded, watertight assembly. This minimizes the risk of water and vapor from seeping behind the tile and causing the growth of mold and mildew.

    INFRARED AIR PURIFIER

    If you choose, this stem is attached to your HVAC and continually cleans the air in your home furnace, reducing the allergens and improving the air quality.
