Building a Custom Home: The Elements of Quality


Building a Custom Home: The Elements of Quality


Building a luxury custom home based on the principles of Woman Centric Design is at the core of our design philosophy. Building Iowa new homes with high-quality products and materials is the foundation of our building philosophy.

Although not always visible, the elements of quality that belong in a luxury custom home can be found throughout the house from the foundation to the fixtures. Today we’ll look at just a few of the elements that can be found in every Castle Pointe Home and are apart of what sets us apart other Des Moines builders.

A Foundation of Quality

Often times the foundations of quality aren’t visible when you walk into a house; however, over time as the house ages, these elements of quality, or lack thereof, can become apparent.

Icynene spray foam insulation is a high-quality product that outperforms traditional fiber glass insulation by serving as a huge, often unseen, source of energy efficiency savings. When applied, this material expands on contact, spreading out to fill in gaps and crevices, creating a tighter, longer-lasting seal.

Another foundational element of quality you’ll discover in our homes is the AdvanTech flooring products used to create the sub-flooring. This high-quality material is moisture resistant and less prone to cupping or warping under the colder, wetter Iowa weather conditions.

A Vision of Quality

Unlike the foundation or insulation used in our homes, the windows and appliances are elements of quality you can see and touch. The Pella windows found throughout are not only visually stunning, but are also incredibly energy efficient. What’s more, the translucent screen coverings are virtually invisible from the street, allowing them to seamlessly blend into home’s overall aesthetics.

The same level of elevated quality can be seen in the Energy Star certified building standards and appliances found throughout our homes. Luxury custom homes built with these techniques and appliances may deliver energy efficiency savings of up to 30 percent compared to most uncertified homes; a savings which you’ll be able to see each month in your utility bills.

Quality of Design Throughout

With high-quality products, certified energy efficiency building standards and a seasoned design team that will work with you to create a luxury custom home that uniquely reflects your wants and needs, it’s easy to understand what sets Castle Pointe Homes apart from other Des Moines home builders.
