Setting a New Standard
New code requirements, not to mention increased demand for comfort and energy efficiency from consumers, encouraged Shea Homes to expand their partnership with Owens Corning to ensure that their SheaXero™ homes are the most comfortable homes in the marketplace.
Through differentiating builder practices and believing that brilliance in building should not be reserved just for show homes, Owens Corning and Shea Homes collaborated to standardize the latest and greatest in scalable, sustainable build practices, making it cost effective and accessible to all homebuyers.
Building Better Homes Together
Among the many comfort and energy efficiency features of a SheaXero™ home is the Owens Corning® ProPink® insulation used from foundation to roofline. The collaboration with Shea Homes is founded in advanced building science and delivers a high level of innovation and performance previously thought unachievable. Many products were used in the Shea Homes, creating an all house solution resulting in:
- Lowering energy bills*
- Creating a first line of defense with allergens and pests
- Reducing exterior noise by up to 40%**
- A comfortable, durable structure buyers are proud to call home
Additionally, Shea Homes and Owens Corning created the Owens Corning® ProPink® High Performance Conditioned Attic System. This system seals and insulates the attic space, lowering attic temperatures and creating a buffer zone between exterior temperatures and the livable space of the home. While only available currently in climate zones 2B and 3B, the standard of living for all SheaXero™ Rio Vista homeowners has improved.
The Owens Corning® ProPink® insulation system is designed to maximize energy efficiency by air sealing and insulating the home. Through this thermal, air and moisture control, every Shea home is comfortable throughout the living space.
“Our relationship with Owens Corning stands above the rest in that we’re able to develop a product together and implement,” says Todd Cicerello, Operations Manager of Shea Homes, Trilogy Rio Vista.
