Our Standards

Our Standards

Quality Materials Matter

Just choosing to build a Coval Home will instantly build equity in form of our standards.  Other builders would consider many of these items as upgrades, charging you additionally for what Coval Homes considers a standard.  Of course, equity isn’t realized until the home is complete, but we know this is a strong aspect that sets us apart from other builders.  We encourage you to compare our standards to other builders and assess the value of Coval Homes.
