Winterizing your Custom Home in Pittsburgh

Many families believe that, just because their home is new, there is not a need to take precautions to winterize it.  Just like any other home, however, even new homes have areas that need to be addressed before the Pittsburgh winter sets in.

Costa Custom HomeJeff Costa, of Costa Homebuilders, feels that homeowners should be proactive in taking steps to winterize their new custom home.  “Even though we use we use Energy Star foam insulation and seal all duct work, there are many precautions homeowners can take, to keep out the winter cold, as well as maintain the clean air within the house.”

Custom Home Builders Pittsburgh – Costa Homebuilders

Custom home builders Pittsburgh:

For Jeff Costa, owner of Costa Homebuilders, building a custom home is more than picking countertops and crossing items off a punch list.  It’s as unique as the clients he builds for.

“We get to know our clients as individuals and study their lifestyles.” Costa said.  “This provides unique insight into a client’s true needs and desires.”

Costa provides small-scale drawings and works with clients until the layout of the home is enthusiastically agreed upon and that their budgetary plan is met.

“Every step is significant, and our clients tell us that our process is enjoyable because of its organization,” Costa said.


Creating a home with the lifestyles of the clients in mind gives homebuyers not just a house, but a destination, making every turn into the driveway the last turn before a peaceful respite from the world.

Whether you want to escape the concept of the formal dining room to opt for a large kitchen and informal dining room, or you simply want to eliminate a living room in favor of a den, Costa can work with you to bring your dreams into design.
