WHAT IS INCLUDED IN AN ACADIAN RESIDENTIAL CONSTRUCTION HOME?
We pride ourselves on having a complete set of standard features, so clients know exactly what they are getting in the base price of their home. Since 1975, we have been perfecting our building process and we've included a lot of great standard features in our homes, such as energy efficiency, name brand materials and quality construction.
When it comes to value, you won't find another builder who can offer this much square footage for the price. We are using industry leading brands, and every home is backed by The Louisiana New Home Warranty.
Peace of mind about the products, process and warranty are all standard features. The beauty is this is a starting point.
2x4 PREMIUM WALL STUDS
We are one of the few select builders in the nation that uses Premium wall studs as a standard. Premium wall studs contain less moisture which results in less twisting and warping and contributes to a better drywall job.
FIBER CEMENT SIDING
The standard fiber cement board lap siding is durable and finished with your choice of Sherwin Williams paint color.
Your custom home includes level 1 ceramic tile in your kitchen, foyer, laundry and all baths. (Wood flooring is also an option.)
PEX WATER SYSTEM
PEX plumbing is resistant to damages caused by Chlorine and is a very sanitary water system with fewer harmful toxins than copper or CPVC.
