At Ethos we use premanufactured panels to make your home weather tight fast.
There are many advantages of using premanufactured panels including a quicker construction time, greater quality assurance, less wasted materials and a reduction in the amount of time the framing is exposed to the elements during construction.
As your home is weather tight faster it prevents moisture getting into the building structure and ensures your home is secure faster.
The cost of energy is rising.
When planning and building a new home it makes good financial sense to future-proof your home against increasingly expensive energy consumption. Heating water and warming a home consumes the bulk of the energy used in an average household. By investing in an energy efficient home you can can reduce long-term energy costs. Over time those energy savings will typically pay for the initial outlay as well as guaranteeing the warmth and comfort of your family.
