We focus on these distinct areas in the building industry:

Custom Green Home
Green Custom Homes

Concern for the environment is growing among U.S. households—and so are energy costs. Because of this, Caldwell & Johnson have been embracing green building techniques for many years. Features like solar panels, water-saving appliances, insulation to improve heating efficiency and the use of renewable or recycled building materials are all popular techniques to improve a home’s efficiency. Caldwell & Johnson allows buyers to include a wide range of green products and give them the opportunity to weigh each cost and benefit to create a home that is stylish, comfortable, but also eco-friendly and energy efficient.

Historical Restorations

Caldwell & Johnson has a specific expertise in renovation and restoration of historic properties.  New England is loaded with elegant, historic properties with fine architectural details and solid structures. Many properties need some attention in order to be modernized or modified to accommodate today’s family living needs. Caldwell & Johnson takes great pride in maintaining the historic integrity of these homes while successfully giving tired or outdated exteriors and interiors new life. True success of an historic renovation is achieved when visitors can’t tell that we were ever in the building – except that it looks (and operates) better.

Home Additions

Caldwell & Johnson has the knowledge of local building codes to avoid common obstacles found when building a home addition. Whether you are looking to add much needed space or just looking to add value to your home, our experience with the building methods found in older New England homes and the relationships we’ve developed with architects, engineers and material suppliers can prove valuable to home owners considering a residential / home addition.

Kitchen & Bath Remodels

Whether your kitchen/bath is falling apart, outdated, or your family is just in need of an upgrade, remodeling can bring new life to a previously dull and underutilized part of any home. Kitchens and bathrooms are like the grand central station of many households. We have a full staff of experts with years of experience to help you through every step of the way. We are here for our clients from initial design stages until project completion and clean up.

Energy Star Homes

Caldwell & Johnson is proud to offer new homes that have earned the ENERGY STAR® label. The ENERGY STAR label means that your new home has been designed and built to standards well above other homes in the market today.  It means better quality, better comfort, and better durability.  It also means that your new home is a better value for today, and a better investment for tomorrow. The ENERGY STAR label gives you the peace of mind that your home has undergone a better process for inspections, testing, and verification to ensure that it meets strict requirements set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Enduring Quality. Better systems make all the difference.
Purchasing a new home is a big investment, so it’s important to be sure that it’s built to last. We’ve designed all of our new ENERGY STAR certified homes to include value-adding energy efficiency features, and a combination of materials and equipment that will deliver better performance.

ENERGY STAR certified new homes include features like:

  • A complete Thermal Enclosure System that includes comprehensive air sealing, quality-installed insulation, and high-performance windows, to deliver improved comfort and lower utility bills.
  • A high-efficiency Heating, Ventilation, and Cooling System that is designed and installed for optimal performance.
  • A comprehensive Water Management System to protect roofs, walls, and foundations from moisture damage.
  • Energy-efficient Lighting and Appliances to help keep utility bills low, while providing high-quality performance and longevity.

Wall-to-Wall Comfort. A better way to live.
Ask anyone who lives in an ENERGY STAR certified home to go back to their old home. You’ll likely hear that there’s no way they’ll give up the comfort that came with the ENERGY STAR label on their new home. From the moment you walk in the door of an ENERGY STAR certified home, you’ll see, feel, and hear the difference.

Proven Value. A better investment for today and tomorrow.
ENERGY STAR certified new homes offer better energy efficiency and performance compared to other homes, making them a better value for today and a better investment for tomorrow. Homes earning the ENERGY STAR label use 20-30 percent less energy than typical new homes, and even more when compared to most resale homes on the market today.
