Our sidewalls are stronger than the competition, averaging just 10” between each stud (Wind Zone 2).

Live Oak Homes are built in a controlled factory environment with state of the art technology. This means that we are able to produce a higher quality home more efficiently. Unlike site built houses our building materials and skilled employees are protected from the elements during the construction process. This prevents damage to our materials and allows us to avoid costly weather delays.

What that means for you is, a reduced chance of mold, and more fresh air for your family, which can help reduce allergy sypmtoms.

Solution Dyed Carpets Throughout For Easy Cleaning

We install only solution dyed carpet in our homes. This means the our carpet color is continuous all the way throughout the carpet fiber, unlike our competitors carpet that only has color on the outside fibers of their carpet.

You could look at our carpet like a carrot with color all the way to the core while others carpet is more like an apple with color only on the outside skin.

Because our carpet is solution dyed you can clean and disinfect our carpet with a diluted bleach solution with out any damage to the carpet.

Dyed Carpets

Premium Rebound Carpet Pad & Tack Strips

Some manufactures take a short cut and staple their carpet down in place of our residential tack strip application.
