Kurk Homes Standards on Custom Built Texas Homes

Whether building from an existing plan, a Southern Living Plan, or consulting with our talented Kurk Homes design team to plan your dream home, we can make your dream home a dream building experience as well. We take pride in providing our clients with a “no surprises” policy by maintaining constant communication throughout the building process.


Being the understructure your home sits on, we prioritize attention to detail, top-grade materials, and experienced professionals to ensure durability, stability, and long-lasting integrity. Each foundation is engineered for your specific site and has a 3rd party inspection process to guarantee it is built to last.


Lot Prep Analysis

Before building, there are important things to consider including factors like topography, soil, drainage, and infrastructure. This analysis ensures optimal home placement, identifies obstacles, and enables efficient construction. Kurk Homes offers a detailed evaluation of your property including the specifics:

  • HOA Requirements
  • Topography and elevation
  • Building area & setback
  • Availability of utilities like electricity, gas and water

Engineered Framing

2 x 6 Exterior Wall Construction Combined with our Structural OSB Sheathing (not foam or denny board) provides increased structural integrity. Our exterior wall framing goes above the industry standard 2 x 4 with 2 x 6 lumber. Along with this, our floor plans are stamped by a Licensed Texas Engineer to provide extra peace of mind.

This combined with our engineered foundations and inspection process means your home is built to last. This unique approach significantly enhances the structural integrity of our homes.

Roofing Construction

Roofs and roofing structures are thoroughly inspected, and all lumber is spaced 16" on center or better to create a structure that can handle all forms of Texas weather.

We use a lifetime warranty composite shingle along with TechShield Radiant Barrier Roof Decking to help reflect heat away from your attic, keeping it cool and reducing your utility bill.

Energy Efficiency

We excel in energy efficiency with R-19 insulation in exterior walls, surpassing the industry standard of R-13. Validated and certified by a third party for exceeding Energy Star requirements, our low E3 vinyl windows further enhance energy performance. We are validated and certified by a third party to exceed energy star requirements.


All Kurk Home builds come equipped with 16 SEER Air Conditioning Units, specifically designed to optimize cooling performance of your new home in the scorching Texas heat. These high-efficiency units not only keep your home refreshingly cool but also contribute to reducing your utility expenses. We design your HVAC system for your home and your lifestyle.

Interior & Exterior Finishes

We specialize in stunning interior and exterior finishes that elevate the overall aesthetic and quality of our homes. From hardwood floors and custom cabinetry to exquisite stone or brick exteriors, we ensure that each element reflects the client's vision and creates a luxurious and inviting living space.
