Zero Energy Ready Homes are high-performance homes built with the future in mind. Many structural and mechanicals are built into this home that would be difficult to retrofit after the home is completed.  This design sets up homeowners to add on  energy-efficient and renewable energy systems with ease that could offset most or all of their annual energy use. These homes are designed and built to meet rigorous efficiency and performance criteria set by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Zero Energy Ready Home Program. By offering Zero Energy Ready Homes in the production market, Robertson Brothers Homes is taking a significant step towards a more sustainable and energy-efficient home for everyday homebuyers. “Many homebuyers have a sincere interest in stainable and energy-efficient features but don’t know where to start. Developing our Zero Energy Ready standard now gives a clear picture to everyday people for what is possible,” said Ebon Petty, Vice President of Sales & Marketing.

Energy Saving Features

The Margate Zero Energy Ready model home features a collection of energy-saving options and advanced building techniques, ranging from high-performance windows to advanced framing for reducing thermal bridging, efficient HVAC systems, and Energy Star-rated appliances and lighting solutions. These features contribute to the home’s exceptional energy efficiency while also providing homeowners with significant long-term savings on utility costs, about $5,000 in energy costs alone, coupled with reduced environmental impacts.

“After developing this new collection of single-family home designs, our team knew the timing was right to develop a package of eco-friendly options that our customers could embrace to meet future energy efficiency goals,” said Bob Doil, COO of Robertson Brothers Homes.

Expert Endorsement

Residential energy code experts D. R. Nelson & Associates praised the company’s recent efforts: “For over 30 years, D.R. Nelson has been working with Robertson Brothers Homes to bring cost-effective building performance innovations from research to reality. D. R. Nelson & Associates are proud to be a member of the Robertson Brothers Homes team that brought this Zero Energy Ready Home to Michigan.”

What Our Homebuyers Are Saying

Ron Simon and Virginia have been phenomenal to work with from Day 1 and throughout the entire process. They are extremely responsive, wonderful to work with, and truly care that we are happy with our purchase and pleased with follow-up. I have never built a home and have heard all the horror stories of the process. Ron Simon exceeded our expectations. He is fabulous, caring and very kind. We have seen him many times working weekends, we are sure to do everything possible to meet timing and make the customer experience very positive and enjoyable. At no time did we feel stress after we first met Ron.
