Decora Homes is constantly evolving so we can make better built homes and make the living in our communities, now and in the future.
A better built home is a healthier, happier environment for our homeowners.
A better built house also makes an important difference to our world - through research in construction science innovation to the resources we utilize in our business, Decora Homes is proud to a good steward of the environment by raising the standards of consumer education, builder consciousness, trades instruction and community support. Here's how:
Energy Star Standards... a Better Way to Live.
Life is all about the choices we make. Investing in a Decora home is one of the Better
choices you'll ever make. Our high standards, quality of materials and understanding of the science of home construction means we build a Better
house, so well-made that they're ENERGY STAR® qualified.
It's comforting to know that, on average, you'll pay about 30% less for energy in a Decora home. And since ENERGY STAR® comes standard with your Decora home, there's no additional fees so you'll start saving on your monthly utilities as soon as you move in.

Inside and Out... a Better Way to Build.
Decora Homes understands that being a better builder means being a leader, and helping others to build better. Every year, members of our team attend Energy & Environmental Building Alliance (EEBA)
conferences in North America to identify and understand construction science innovations and changing industry best practices. Our staff are active at the Board and Executive levels for Waterloo Region and Brantford Home Builders Associations, representing a voice for environmental practices.
Decora Homes is an industry leader in Site Waste Management. In 2008 alone, we diverted over 496 metric tonnes of waste away from landfills and into recycling and reclamation programs - materials such as wood, mixed wood, cardboard, construction debris and compost.
We ensure our trades carry through on these policies, who:
- have environmental and recycling best practices included in their scopes of work
- are continuously evaluated to ensure best built homes
- must attend training in our office, such as on Air Tightness Procedures
- have access to our training manuals in every site office
Being green means being concerned... about the environment, about the homes we build and about you. We hold ourselves and the people we select to work with accountable, so that when you choose Decora Homes, you know it's the Better
