Member Insights by Bob Webb Homes

When it comes to building a home, Bob Webb believes in the details. While other builders are content with traditional methods, we know that taking the extra step to think of our clients’ needs is the difference between just another house and the perfect home. With 60 years of experience, Bob Webb knows the importance of what’s behind the walls. Some of the innovative differences from Bob Webb include…

Basements

When it comes to keeping a house warm in the cold Ohio winters, there needs to be proper insulation throughout the structure. In the basement, we use spray foam insulation on all of our ban boards. This is an area with no drywall that can be affected by moisture. By layering several inches of expandable foam with traditional insulation over top, we eliminate all moisture. We can also do this between the first and second floors.

Windows

Traditional window flashing can lead to leaks and water damage. We use fine details to ensure your home is free from water damage around the windows. Under the sill is a beveled (angled) piece of wood. If moisture ever were to enter the home, this would direct it back to the outside, protecting your windows, frames, and sills. “Knowing that we do these little things…most of our customers do not realize the thought and work Bob Webb puts into every home so that it will perform and last for generations,” says Brandon Belli, Director of Construction.

Energy Efficiency

Bob Webb also believes in energy efficiency. Check out our Behind the Walls videos to see how we eliminate cold corners from your rooms and how we work with HVAC installers for details that go above and beyond. These are some of the many ways Bob Webb improves energy efficiency in your home.

When it comes to your new home, there is no reason to settle for anything less than perfection. From practical details like basement insulation to entertaining add-ons like our popular Western Doors, Bob Webb knows that small differences can add up to big benefits for homeowners. “Being part of the innovation that makes Bob Webb Homes the best in our industry is very rewarding,” says Belli. Look for these and other thoughtful features in a Bob Webb home today.
