Sloot Construction Ltd. provides each and every one of our clients the advantage of receiving the highest quality materials, products and finishes STANDARD! We are proud of our homes and as such we want to provide our homeowners with standards well above industry standards so they can be proud to show every last detail of their home. Here are some examples of how we build better.
Exterior Insulation (Codebord Air Barrier System) - Extruded pink polystyrene rigid insulating sheathing helps keep heat inside the structure and keeps the cavity warmer. This reduces the potential for condensation which could threaten the deterioration of the structural elements, plus contribute to poor indoor air quality. The exterior sheathing combined with a gasket system on the outside frame helps control the leakage of air. In turn, this system delivers a durable, dependable comfort, and improves the energy efficiency of the home by eliminating drafts and air leakage.
High Efficiency Furnace - A top of the line Lennox Natural Gas Furnace means you're saving money on your utility costs. We include the best Lennox Furnace, standard. It has the ability to adjust it's heat output to any level between 35% and 100%, which means precise comfort and incredibly efficiency. With an efficiency rating of up to 98.2% AFUE, this furnace will save hundreds of dollars each year compared to standard furnaces.
HRV - Heat Recovery Ventilation Systems are standard in every one of our homes. By keeping excess moisture out of your home, they are better for your building, your furniture and your health. They help to keep the climate inside your home at a more consistent level. Typically, they retain about three quarters of the heat that would normally be lost from your home through ventilation.
Low-E Argon Windows - Custom made Low-E Argon Windows by Golden Windows. These windows contain argon gas between each pane of glass. Argon gas is considerably more effective at reflecting heat than regular air. This means that unwanted heat is deterred from entering the home and interior heat is prevented from leaving. Whether in Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter, the result is a more stable climate within the home.
Basement Insulation - To control issues associated with basements, such as condensation and dampness, our basement leak management system incorporates our wall insulation. Which consists of pink rigid insulating sheathing plus a secondary layer of batt insulation. This system will improve the overall thermal performance of your basement wall and ensure your basement is as comfortable as the rest of your home. A fully insulated concrete floor and leak management system are also included. Additional energy savings are an added value!
Cabinetry - All Kitchen, Bath, and Laundry Cabinetry are custom designed by Barzotti Woodworking. With its extensive custom cabinetry department and highly skilled craftsmen, your design concepts can be translated into beautiful furniture. Not only does this mean you can maximize space where modular kitchens cannot, but you can incorporate any special design feature you would like.
Trim - Enlarged Baseboards and Casings add a new dimension of formal elegance to your home. Standard 5 1/4" baseboards and 3" casing increase durability and instantly increase the value of your home. All trim is painted to accentuate this decorative component.
Custom Fireplace Mantel and Surround - The fireplace is likely to be the focal point of your room and you most likely want it to make a dramatic impression; not just blend into the background. Our extremely talented on staff craftsman will meet with you to discuss how you would like your fireplace to look. Whether you are really unsure of what you are looking for or you have an extravagant picture from a magazine, we will create a fireplace mantel with a surround that is hand built and truly custom.
Granite Countertops - The natural beauty of granite in its vast arrays of shades, colours and textures will add a new dimension of richness to your home. Not only is it one of the most durable materials available, it is resistant to staining, burning and discolouring.
Custom Made Stairs and Spindles - Each staircase we install is custom crafted locally and designed to work with the unique layout of each home. Oak is a very hard wood that will endure the requirements of this high traffic area and we will stain the entire staircase to match your hardwood floor selection to ensure a continuous, unified look.
Hardwood Throughout Main Floor - Hardwood floors never go out of style and it is a good thing because having hardwood floor throughout the main floor of your home as a standard means increased durability and increased value. The choice of hardwood from Sarmazian Brothers (our local supplier), is literally endless from maple to oak to hickory and you can choose from any colour of the rainbow to ensure a perfect match to any other decorative feature in your home.
Ceramic Floors in Kitchen, Foyer, Bathrooms & Laundry - Large floor tiles from Guelph Ceramic Decor, are standard in these high traffic areas as they are much more durable than industry standard vinyl floors. Tiles can give any room a whole new dynamic and can be matched to any decor.
Higher Density Carpet to Second Floor and Bedrooms - The Second Floor and Bedrooms are carpeted with a deep pile carpet for a more luxurious feeling underfoot. A firm resilient carpet pad is installed underneath, to give your carpet a good foundation and increasing its comfort and extending its life by absorbing foot traffic impact.
Double Stainless Steel Undermount Sink in Kitchen -And undermount sink allows the natural beauty of your counter to be uninterrupted by the edges of your sink. Clean up of your counter is made easier by having an undermount kitchen sink because all food and other spills can be swept right into the sink with no obstruction.
Whirlpool in Ensuite - The Master Ensuite should be a place where you can feel calm and relaxed. Not only does a whirlpool heighten the spa like feel of your ensuite, but it increases the value of your home. We understand that the lifestyle of our homeowners can be busy and hectic, so we provide each home with a whirlpool standard, so you can have a place to escape from it all.
High End Kohler Fixtures - Our standard line of Kohler plumbing fixtures from Emco (The Ensuite), are higher end than industry standard and are appealing and suited to all tastes and styles. We understand however, that plumbing fixtures are subject to very personal tastes. The possibilities are literally endless and we will work with you to incorporate any type of plumbing fixture from antique to modern.
Drain Water Heat Recovery - The drain water heat recovery system is designed to recover heat from warm drain water. Water heating accounts for 1/3 of your homes energy use and 90% of that hot water goes down the drain. The drain water heat recovery system recovers up to 80% of that lost heat. By using recycled thermal energy you reduce energy use and save up to 40% or more on your hot water heating costs.
