At Hagood Homes, we have always strived to build quality and value into every single home we construct. One of the ways we do this is to include a number of upgrades as part of our standard features package. This means our extras don’t end up costing you extra.
For 2021, we have revamped our included extras list to be our most robust offering yet! Read below to learn more about some of the exciting changes and benefits that our buyers now enjoy.
Triple Pane Windows vs Double Pane
We’re now offering triple-pane windows for even more energy efficiency. Our large windows still let plenty of natural light flood our homes. The windows we use are HERO Code certified and contribute to our ecoSelect program. Check out our video from Sales Manager Josh Adams as he explains why we made the switch.
8-Foot Tall Sold Core Doors vs Hallow Core
Before 2021, all doors off the main living area in our homes were 8 feet tall versus a standard 6 foot, 8-inch-tall door. Starting this year, we’ll be using 8-foot-tall doors throughout our homes on the first floor. Plus, all bedroom doors are now solid core rather than hollow doors.
Included Coastal Trim Package
The coastal trim package adds elegance to windows, doors and a number of other details. Example of the coastal trim package includes flat panels on the window casing, enlarged window headings and cove crown moldings. Previously these were upgrades that homeowners could add for an additional cost. Starting in 2021, the coastal trim package comes standard.
Shiplap or Wainscoting in Foyer & Dining Area
Now buyers have a choice of shiplap or wainscoting in the foyer and dining areas. Previously, this upgrade was just offered in the foyer only. These enhanced millwork wall coverings offer elegance and class to any space.
Master Bathroom Zero-Entry Shower
A zero-entry shower means that there is no curb at the door or entry of the shower. This is one of our aging-in-place features that buyers love. For 2021, this upgrade that enhances the functionality and livability of a home is now one of our standard included features.
Full Overlay Kitchen Cabinets with Soft Close Doors & Drawers
Full overlay cabinets mean that the doors and drawers sit flush against each other. The frame behind them is not visible. This gives a kitchen a sleek and modern feel. Prior to 2021, kitchen cabinets had a standard overlay. Plus, now all cabinets drawers and doors are soft-close. Previously just the drawers were soft-close.
Expanded Options for Cabinet Stain & Paint
Starting in 2021, we are offering 16 paint options and 11 stain options. These expanded offerings give our buyers more customization options at no additional cost. It allows them to create the home of their dreams without any unexpected cost increase.
Quartz Countertops in Guest Bathrooms
Previously, the standard offering for countertops in the guest bathroom was cultured marble. Our move to quartz countertops in the bathrooms has durability and maintenance benefits for homeowners. Quartz is a harder and stronger stone than cultured marble, thus making it more durable. Quartz countertops also do not scratch as easily and have a greater heat resistance than cultured marble. Because quartz is not as porous as marble, these countertops are not as prone to staining and do not require regular sealing.
Increased Landscape Budget
The standard landscape budget was increased from $11,000 to $12,000. This increased budget enables buyers to include more shrubs and trees in their landscapes or pick out premium plant cultivars that they love.
