Building Tomorrow’s Homes Today

Lexar Home’s building scientists study and test materials for constructibility and how each engages with neighboring materials. With this heightened sense of detail, your Lexar Home sets the bar above all other builder’s standards.

Energy Efficiency

Unlike most homes on the market, we build homes to performance standards that far exceed the minimum state code requirements. This results in huge average yearly savings of $1,257 – $2,335. We encourage you to compare our homes to others that you might be considering.

Now, we live in a wonderfully comfortable home. Everything about it is amazing. Our energy bills are even lower than when we lived in a small apartment.

.27 Windows

High performance windows save energy and provide a comfortable and consistent room-to-room living environment. They also prevent UV rays from damaging or fading your furniture and flooring.

Yearly Savings = $480+

R-49 plus Raised Heel

The building code requires either raised heel trusses or R-49 insulation. We do both in order to maximize the insulation over your entire attic resulting in a 33% increase in energy savings and better ventilation within the attic space.

Yearly Savings = $350+

Insulated Headers & Corners

Advanced framing techniques increase the amount of insulation in your walls, reduces thermal bridging, lowers your heating costs and saves you money.

Yearly Savings = $300+

Heat Pump
Water Heater

Water heating is often 25% of your energy usage. Heat Pump Water Heaters are more than 3 times as efficient as a conventional water heater delivering the same heat for a third of the cost.

Optional in some locations check with your local office.

Yearly Savings = $220+

Water Conserving
Fixtures

Water Sense labeled faucets, toilets and showerheads reduce water consumption without sacrificing performance. This not only lowers the amount of water used but also saves energy used for water heating as well.

Yearly Savings = $300+

Airtight
Drywall Approach

The joints where drywall meets the framing, particularly around doors, windows and at the ceiling are some of the worst air leakage spots within a home. Sealing the drywall at those locations has a significant impact in preventing warm moist air from entering your walls and cold air from entering your home.

Yearly Savings = $500+

Energy Sealing

We make sure our homes are well sealed by making sure all the opportunities for air leakage are sealed and blocked. In a typical home if you added up all the locations where air leaks in and out, it would equal a 2 foot hole in your living room. That’s cold, and expensive!

Yearly Savings = $220+

BIBS Insulation

Blown-in Blanket insulation results in a more completely filled cavity with zero voids, gaps or compression and increases the R-value by more than 10%. Formaldehyde-free insulation made of recycled material promotes healthier indoor air for your family.

Yearly Savings = $300+

LED Lighting

LED lighting uses up to 80% less energy than standard incandescent bulbs and can last upwards of 50,000 hours. That’s more than 20 years of typical use and up to 5 times longer than CFL’s!

Yearly Savings = $300+

Superior Quality

Our reputation is built on the quality of the materials, fixtures and tradespeople we use and we back every Lexar home with our exclusive 3-5 Limited Lifetime Warranty.

The quality of construction was more than I expected for the price. They used quality materials and focused on energy efficiency.

Capillary Breaks & Sealed Crawl Space Vapor Barrier

Concrete foundations and damp crawl spaces can wick a lot of moisture into the framing members of your home. We help prevent this by adding sill seal to create a capillary break between the framing members and foundation and also by sealing the vapor barrier in your crawl and extending it up to the top of the foundation wall.

Advanced Door &
Window Flashing

Pan flashing creates an added layer of defense, just another step Lexar takes to assure your home is protected from moisture damage. This improves the comfort and overall performance of your home while protecting it from moisture damage.

High Quality
House Wrap

Not all house wraps are created equal. We use the highest quality Dupont™ Tyvek® DrainWrap® that helps keep air and water out, while letting water vapor escape. This promotes drying in wall systems, helping to prevent mold and water damage, and stops air movement through the walls providing a more energy-efficient home.

Tested for Minimal
Air Leakage

Our attention to detail allows our homes to routinely surpass code requirements by as much as 40%, saving you additional money by reducing air leakage throughout the home, backed up by 3rd party testing.

Closed Soffits &
Ridge Venting

Attics can become extremely warm and trap moisture unless properly vented. Code requires a minimum square footage of net free area but doesn’t address ideal location. We utilize LP Smart Soffit and Lomanco continuous ridge venting and then calculate the best balance between intake and exhaust to ensure the most effective ventilation strategy for your attic.

Synthetic
Roof Underlayment

Synthetic roof underlayment combined with an impenetrable ice/water shield ensures that any water that ends up at the edge of the roof has an opportunity to dry without doing any damage. Plus we add a drip edge that kicks water away from the face of the building.

Engineered Floor Systems

LP SolidStart engineered floor systems are stronger, straighter and help minimize squeaks and vibration while providing peace of mind with a 50-year manufacturer warranty. Seventy percent of all wood in Lexar Homes is engineered to maximize efficiency and reduce waste.

Freeze Proof PEX-a Plumbing

Uponor PEX-a piping will not burst in freezing conditions like metal piping will, eliminating costly repairs. Unlike metal piping, it’s immune to corrosion and mineral build-up and is not affected by electrolysis, which can cause small pin hole leaks in copper piping. No glues, solder, or solvents are used to assemble PEX-a , keeping potentially dangerous chemicals out of your plumbing systems. Plus, there is no risk of copper traces in your water from the breakdown of pipe that has been linked to heart disease and Alzheimer’s.

Health & Comfort

We’re serious about your health and include numerous features and construction techniques to provide superior indoor air quality and comfort for you and your family.

I have horrible allergies and happen to choose to live surrounded by hay fields. Since building our new home and choosing the ductless mini split heating and air conditioning system, we have seen a definite improvement in the cleanliness of the air quality. My allergies are much better and I can finally sleep.

VOC Absorbing
Drywall

CertainTeed AirRenew© is the first and only drywall that actively cleans the air and improves indoor air quality.

No/Low-VOC Primers, Paints, Adhesives & Caulks*

By removing toxins in your home, we’re reducing landfill contaminants and eliminating off-gassing in the environment. It’s good for your family and for the planet.

These are water-based products that cannot be used in freezing temperatures.

Energy Recovery
Fresh Air Circulation

Our whole house fresh air system expels stale air and takes in fresh outside air. When the two pass by each other the fresh air is warmed up so you don’t pay extra heating costs.

Optional in some locations check with your local office.

Panasonic Energy Star
Bath Fan

Panasonic WhisperGreen™ moisture sensing bath fans provide precise ventilation rates, reduce moisture condensation, improve indoor air quality, and use 65% less energy than louder, traditional models.

Ductless Mini Split System

Stay comfortable year round, mini-splits allow you to adjust each room to your own comfort level all while saving you up to 20% on your heating and cooling bills.

Optional in some locations check with your local office.

Sealed Garage-to-
house Common Walls

Creating an airtight seal between the garage and house reduces the opportunity for common garage pollutants, such as carbon monoxide, fertilizers, and gasoline, from entering your home.

Flash and Batt Insulation

We also offer our R-25+ value Flash and Batt insulation system. This method combines 2″ of closed cell foam and 2 1/2″ of fiberglass batts to fill the cavity. This creates a total air seal and adds even more stability to the wall structure. Add 1/2″ of rigid foam insulation to the exterior to bring it up to a total R-30 insulating value!

Foam-wrapped

INSULFOAM© 1/2″ foam-wrap improves insulation of walls by 25%!
