Natural stone is up to 8 times stronger than concrete. It absorbs less water and will never produce efflorescence. Colors permeate throughout the entire stone, unlike man-made veneer that exposes concrete aggregate when scratched or cut. Every piece of stone is unique in shape, color, and texture, which makes every installation different and artistic. Whereas fake stone will develop a pattern as it’s made from concrete molds, you will never see a visible pattern on natural stone. It is reusable and has a higher resale value than man-made materials. No foundation ledge is required – it installs just like man-made veneer.

 

 

Pella windows are high quality at an affordable price. The easy-care, low-maintenance, high-grade, vinyl windows and doors never need painting. Metal-reinforced sashes on double hung, single hung, and sliding windows provide superior structural integrity and resistance to wind. Dual pane glass with Advanced Low E coatings and multiple weather strips provide energy efficiency and comfort. Pella has one of the best warranties in the business: Vinyl windows are backed by Pella’s limited lifetime warranty. It’s non-prorated, meaning the coverages within the defined warranty periods do not decrease over time, for as long as you own your home.

Why Does Korndoerfer Homes Choose to Build with Champion Brick?

Categories: All Blogs, Our Partners | Posted: November 24, 2017 | Comments Off on Why Does Korndoerfer Homes Choose to Build with Champion Brick?

Brick made from clay and shale – some of the most abundant, natural materials on earth – are fired through a kiln at up to 2000 degrees. The reason the brick turns into such a durable material is that the clay/shale unit actually goes through a vitrification process in the kiln, which enables the clay particles to fuse together. Because of this, clay bricks do not fade.

Research confirms that genuine clay brick provides superior shelter in three major categories: fire protection, wind protection, and moisture control. Brick offers lasting value. It doesn’t rot, dent, or need to be painted. It is one of the few materials that can actually look better with age.

Brick is a building material that has exceptional “thermal mass” properties. Thermal mass is the ability of a heavy, dense material to store heat and then slowly release it. This means that during the summer months your brick home stays cool during the hottest part of the day. During the winter, brick walls store your home’s heat and radiate it back to you. All clay brick sold and supplied by Champion Brick meet industry standards for use in our climate.

Decorative lighting is the jewelry of the home, setting off every other element that has been designed in. Maxim Lighting uses proprietary designs not seen elsewhere, enhancing the home environment and becoming part of that design.

Maxim makes an effort to provide each design in full family offerings. This allows the same style to be used throughout a home space to maintain a theme and consistent appearance. Maxim uses a wide variety of finishes, but many repeat from family to family allowing ala-carte substitutions for customers to put their own personal touch on the fixtures going into the home.

Maxim Lighting is a privately held family company in the same way Korndoerfer Homes is. Their values and accountability have the same corporate culture, making them a good fit as a supplier to homes. Customers can know that Korndoerfer Homes has a vendor who is backing them up the same way they care for their customers. This makes for a complete experience when using Maxim Lighting products, from selection all the way through many years of satisfied use.

Maxim decorative products are warranted to Korndoerfer Homes for two years; an exception is polished brass finishes for one year. Outdoor products branded by the Vivex name are warranted for three years.
