John Maher BuildersOur Reputation is Building

Construction

Of the more than 1,500 homes that John Maher Builders has constructed in middle Tennessee and the Spring Hill community it is the consistency of quality that separates us from other builders in our market. Many of our staff and contractors have been with us for many years, making the difficult tasks seem routine. Here are just a few highlights of the construction features that are a fixture of every John Maher Builders home:

¬†We use 2″ x 12″ girders for added strength in crawl space and slab foundation.

  • Bottom plates are bolted to the floors on 4 foot centers then set in cement, not strapped with metal strips.
  • 2″ x 10″ Floor joists on 16 inch centers.
  • 3/4″ inch Toung and Groove plywood floors. The decking is glued, nailed and then screwed to the floor joists to minimize the chance of floor squeaks.
  • Each home is hand built, one board at a time. Some builders buy pre-built walls and ceilings to save on time and money.
  • Rafters are also placed 16 inches on centers for added integrity.
  • Copper plumbing is installed below grade as opposed to using plastic CPVC.
  • Metal duct systems are used and then insulated to minimize heat and cool transfer.
  • Dampers are installed to allow home owners access to shut off heating and cooling to areas of the home to save them money.
  • Thermal pane windows are trimmed out in wood around and under each window.
  • Insulation is stuffed into small openings throughout the home to prevent outside air infiltration.
  • Steel closet rods and wood shelves are used in place of less expensive wire racks.
  • Every home is wrapped in durable OSB. This adds to the integrity of the home and also minimizes drafts.
  • Detailed pre-inspections and orientations are implemented on every sale.
