Build Better Homes Together
The Ah-HA moment the Birth of ComfortBuilt™ Homes.
We took a step back and had an ah-ha moment. Building finely crafted homes is one thing. But building finely crafted, comfortable homes that are energy-efficient, durable and affordable as standard is quite another. Welcome to a higher standard of living.ComfortBuilt™ Homes. Crafted for comfort. Customized for performance.

Who sets the standard? The builder or the homebuyer?
We think both.
We asked, “could we build homes that save homebuyers money every month from lower heating and cooling and maintenance costs? And, at the same time, could they still be beautiful and comfortable?”
This we knew: What everyone else is building has never been good enough for us. The old way might meet building codes, but it didn't meet our craftsman code of excellence. So, we rewrote the definition of what comes standard in a production home. Through Owens Corning's Building Science and Kertes' craftsmanship, we've made a higher standard a reality. The result is a smarter way to build – a ComfortBuilt™ Home:
A High Standard of Comfort for Your High Standard of Living
What makes ComfortBuilt™ Homes different?
At Kertes Homes, we use exceptional materials to achieve extraordinary results. We collaborated with Owens Corning Building Experts, the PINK® insulation company, and they shared with us over 50 years of research and development. They shared their building science. We asked hard questions. And we saw the proof. Homes built using building science and outstanding product out-perform and out-last homes built the old-fashioned way.
Because we wrap many of our homes in Owens Corning® FOAMULAR® Extruded Polystyrene (XPS) Rigid Foam Insulation, our ComfortBuilt™ Homes are cozy and comfortable year round. They’re protected against air infiltration, moisture intrusion and all the while protect your home value. Say good-bye to high heating and cooling bills. You’ll actually find yourself saving money every month. Money that you can spend on more important things – like that dream vacation – with or without the kids!
