Comfortable, Low Cost Living
Our wall and foundation systems offer a choice of insulation levels, starting at a level 30% better than building regulations require, going through to products which exceed the requirements of the ultra-low energy Passivhaus building standard. Combined, Build Homes Better products create the structure for a robust, energy efficient and peaceful home with a reduction of up to 70% on energy bills.
Our systems are rated A or A+ in the BRE green guide for construction and all Build Homes Better products use recycled materials and are fully recyclable.
Building sustainably is essential both to preserve precious natural resources and to improve quality of life. That’s why all Build Homes Better products are designed to be sustainable from start to finish. From manufacture, to delivery, to construction, to running costs – meeting the needs of occupants and the environment.

At Build Homes Better, we understand your build journey and give comprehensive, practical, and personal advice on product selection and installation to make sure your self-build project is as bump-free as possible.
Roger Yeoman, owner of the award winning BuildIt Eco house built using BuildBetter Walling and BuildBetter Flooring, who after four years of living in his new home sent us an email following a very cold winter that said:
“The Beast from the East has beaten me; this is the first time I’ve had to put the heating on. But I turned it off again after half an hour.” Mr & Mrs Evans, who, two months away from completing their self-built forever home using BuildBetter Walling and BuildBetter Flooring received the results of their air tightness tests and were astonished to have scored an incredibly low 0.23 – even lower that the difficult to achieve score of 1 that’s needed to comply with the Passivhaus Standard.
Mr and Mrs Tunnard, whose home built with BuildBetter Walling costs less than £400 per year to heat and maintains a steady internal temperature of 20-23 degrees even after outside temperatures of as low as 3.5 degrees. “We have our dream home, a traditional looking build which does not cost the earth to run!”
Our customer who, in the kitchen of her newly built house where she had fitted BuildBetter Flooring, danced bare foot. Her friends thought that it was so warm she must have underfloor heating, which was not the case.
