PEI Passive Home Builder
Trout River Homes Inc.
Terry and Natalie had a vision when they incorporated in 2006 -- to be known as builders of energy efficiency on Prince Edward Island. We understood the importance of attention to detail to assure a satisfied customer. With the rising cost of fuel, it only made sense to find alternate building methods that put less demand on energy requirements, that is when we found passive house -- a European Standard of building.
In 2012 we traveled to Halifax, Nova Scotia to participate in an intensive week-long Passive House Design course. It was a costly endeavor at that time to take a week from work, travel expenses and course fees. But today we can say that we are so glad we did and know that it was one of the best business decisions we have made. This German design of construction and European sourced products makes so much more sense versus conventional built homes. The windows, air sealant tapes, exterior membranes etc. are of a superior quality.
Terry has been building energy efficiency homes on PEI since the late 80's when he build to R2000 standard of construction. Natalie has worked in the accounting field within the construction industry for 20 plus years, so together we form a strong team. We employ a small work crew of three to four. Trout River Homes staff are reliable, hardworking individuals that have a desire to learn and take pride in the craftsmanship of the project from start to finish. We also use sub trades in the building process which we are able to trust in doing the same quality of workmanship that we expect to pass on to our clients.
We take pride in meeting with our customers several times during the quotation process to ensure we are pricing exactly what that customer is looking for without any hidden costs. We take the time to build a detail quote that describes the entire build from start to finish. This quote works as the contract and change orders are added and deleted if changes are made. This makes for a happy customer and a happy builder, which in turn becomes a happy home.
We are very proud to say that we are running on a perfect track record for customer satisfaction. We have always built our business on our word, integrity, honesty and reliable craftsmanship. We take ownership to detail and we assure you that your needs are met. We price according to plan, design and customer's specifications.
We continue researching for innovative methods and products available within the construction industry. We choose to use products that are scientifically proven to last longer and will substantially reduce home heating costs far more than that of the products currently used in conventional build today .
As our client, we will do everything possible to exceed your expectations and customer satisfaction!
