Our homes feature a number of energy saving and comfort enhancing items as standard and assists to reduce green-house gas emissions. Keep your home cool in summer and warmer in winter and reduce the reliance on artificial heating and cooling.
Roof ventilators help to reduce the temperature inside the roof space by extracting hot air and enabling it to be replaced by cooler, ambient air from outside. This helps your insulation to work more effectively while operating silently and at no cost.
*Roof ventilators are not available in bushfire zones.
Insulation acts as a barrier to heat flow and is essential for keeping your home warm in winter and cool in summer.
The R value of insulation measures resistance to heat flow, also known as thermal resistance. The higher the R-value, the higher the resistance to heat transfer and therefore greater insulating effect.
We include R3.5 ceiling insulation batts, including garage (excluding eaves, patio and porch) and R1.5 wall insulation batts to external walls of house, including garage to all homes from the Shavida collection.
During construction, roof sarking helps to protect the frame of your house from the weather and once you’ve moved in, sarking helps protect your roof cavity from storm driven rain and dust, improves its thermal performance, and helps reduce the risk of condensation.
