Maryland builder JT Custom Builders is the February 2024 RESNET® HERS® Index Builder of the Month. We talked with owner Jimmy Tereyla about their HERS-rated homes. Tereyla tells us, “A HERS-rated home demonstrates to the Owner of the home, the Builder, and anyone else involved the commitment to building better, more energy-efficient homes. It goes beyond “talking about” building better and actually shows a tangible result for the efforts put in.” He continues, “It’s a non-negotiable item for us. We love building better homes and want to be able to demonstrate the tangible results of our efforts.” As a custom builder, Tereyla says “We like to be able to pay attention to all of the details, and when we educate our customers on why we do what we do and the benefits for them, they love that we take the steps that we do and enjoy seeing the scores we achieve.” Read the full JT Custom Builders profile here.
