Your BuiltGreen Builder
The BuiltGreen program is an exciting voluntary program. Built-Rite Homes is certified by BuiltGreen Canada through specifically designed builder training. The program is designed to use a checklist or "menu" of items which can be customized based on the specific preferences of the homeowner. Along with the BuiltGreen checklist selections, the home receives an Energuide Rating, which rates the energy efficiency and consumption within the home.
Our mission is to provide our clients with the highest quality, energy efficient, environmentally sound projects within their budget. This focuses on maximizing our clients' return on their investment without compromising craftsmanship, quality of materials, or the environment.
When you're building a home, it only makes sense to incorporate methods that can improve indoor air quality, conserve water, and save money. Owning a Green home doesn't mean you have to sacrifice any luxury just to be environmentally conscious. Built-Rite Homes offers a range of options customized to the specific needs and budget constraints of our clients.
BuiltGreen ensures that any home with a certification comes equipped with advanced technologies that create optimal living environments without the footprint of a regular home.

Imagine no energy bills for nearly 3 months!
When you look at the cost of owning a home, it’s much more than the purchase price that must be considered – there’s the mortgage, property taxes, upkeep and energy costs that all have to be factored in. In fact, energy costs rank as the second largest overall monthly expense. And while it is true that homeowners pay a small premium on the purchase price of an ENERGY STAR qualified home, it’s also true that the upgraded features pay for themselves (and more) with day-in and day-out energy savings of approximately 20%. And when you use 20% less... you pay for 20% less (which, if you think about it, is like getting almost 3 months of energy use FREE every year!)
