BUILDERS SPOTLIGHTMountain Top Builders: green and fun
Grand County Builders Association
Building a custom home should be an enjoyable and exciting experience. Mountain Top Builders Inc. (MTB) is a custom home construction company with the goal of providing services through integrity, exceptional customer service, and conscientious pricing while maintaining a focus on sustainability, and having fun.
As an ENERGY STAR TM partner and Certified Green Professional builder, MTB devotes a considerable amount of time and energy focusing on minimizing their environmental impact.
Mountain Top believes integrity is a key component in any builder-home owner relationship. It has been a primary factor in its strong relationships with former customers and its high referral base. MTB maintains this integrity by sharing accurate information, minimizing surprises, and keeping clients and subcontractors informed throughout the process. Also critical in maintaining integrity is having a continued presence in Grand County and providing a solid warranty that stands by the product.
Customer service is another important piece in creating a positive building experience, and communication is an integral part of that. Mountain Top places an emphasis on getting to know potential clients to confirm each is a good fit for the other. Once the construction process starts, Mountain Top uses a cloud-based program that allows owners to be informed and updated on the schedule and budget, make selections, and view photos to track the construction of their home. Pricing is another area where clear information is necessary. MTB provides customers with complete cost information as well as project options to enable them to remain within their budget.
These values of integrity, customer service, and conscientious pricing are pursued concurrently with a respect for environmental considerations. Mountain Top tries to incorporate and steer clients toward environmentally friendly materials and processes. Sometimes this is as simple as building better, not bigger, or positioning a home so that it receives optimal sunlight to naturally light and heat or cool the home.
MTB also makes an effort to look at the big picture, to see the long term affects and benefits of using sustainable processes and energy efficient products. When looking at the efficiency and sustainability of products, the life-cycle costs of those products are often evaluated. This means comparing the costs of installment, operation, and replacement of different products to decide which will have the largest return on investment to the homeowners.
Eco-friendly materials may be more expensive to install but more cost-effective in the long run. In order for buildings to have a sustainable design (and build), there needs to be an optimum balance of performance, appearance, and cost; comfort; return on investment; resource efficiency; energy efficiency; and durability. Mountain Top strives to incorporate all of these important qualities into their homes and processes.
Finally, through almost 20 years of Grand County custom home building experience, MTB has found great success in a team approach whereby the owner, builder and architect work together from start to finish to create a project that meets or exceeds expectations. Mountain Top encourages anyone considering a building project to get all parties involved early to make this the best and most pleasurable experience possible.
