Having been in business nearly 35 years, we pride ourselves in building a solid, quality home that withstands the test of time. We continually search for ways to use better materials, and will only use products we would put into our own homes. Take a look at the 20th Century Advantage.
The 20th Century Construction—Craftsmanship
A successful home builder knows the importance of choosing the right craftsmen to work with. We have strong relationships with our subcontractors, many who we’ve worked with for several decades. Once you look at our client testimonials, you will find a common theme: quality product and excellent craftsmanship at affordable prices.
The 20th Century Construction—Warranty
As a client of 20th Century, you will receive a one year HBA home warranty that takes effect when you take possession of your home.. But that’s not all – our total customer care program goes beyond the warranty. Prior to occupancy, we will walk through your completed home with you to ensure that everything is acceptable and that it meets our high standards. We strive for a high quality level throughout the construction process, however, homes naturally breath, move and settle, especially in the first year, so we will address any concerns twice in the one year period: 30 days after move in and again at 11 months after move in. If we return for a maintenance problem within the warranty period that was created because 20th Century or our business partners didn’t meet our quality standards, we will replace or repair the problem at no cost to you. Appliances and other manufactured components will be covered by the manufacturer’s warranty.
The 20th Century Construction—Foundation
For new home buyers, Superior Walls is the smart foundation solution and is the only foundation manufacturer whose products are approved to contribute points toward certification of a building under the National Green Building StandardTM.With each century, technology improves and Superior Walls are this century’s technology. 20th Century has been using them for nearly six years.
