Linus Loves Quality Construction

Categories: Articles, New Homes Chesapeake, New Homes Suffolk VA, New Homes Virginia Beach | Posted: June 7, 2016

quality construction

Linus (our spokesdog) is a stickler for attention to detail, which is yet another reason he loves our new homes so much. Most know that Napolitano Homes is well known for its soaring elevations, rich architectural details, flowing and intuitive floorplans, and modern appointments and technology. But what about the less noticeable details, such as what’s hiding behind the walls, or quality control systems we have in place between breaking ground and a new home’s finishing touches? While these details in the building process are seldom seen, Linus knows that Napolitano Homes takes extraordinary care in these early stages. In doing so, we ensure that each home we build is not only visually pleasing in its final form, but also is structurally sound, long lasting, and a solid investment for you and your family.

Here are a few examples of what’s hidden behind the walls, as well as systems Napolitano Homes has in place that differentiates itself from other builders in the area:

Hurricane Straps

hurrican strapsLiving close to the water means an almost unlimited number of recreational and natural activities, but with these benefits of the coastal life comes the inherent risk of possible high winds from hurricanes, tropical storms, and nor’easters that make their way up the east coast. A home is only as strong as its weakest link, therefore our structural engineer-approved floorplans utilize several wind resistant methods of securing the home in place in the event one of these storms moves through the Hampton Roads area. First, the roof is anchored securely to the walls by installing hurricane clips at every rafter-to-wall connection. In addition to the roof, all connections between floors are secured to make one continuous load path. Finally, the first floor is secured to the foundation with hurricane straps. These straps are long plates that extend several feet up and below the foundation, as seen in the photo to the right.

stable wallsStructural Integrity

As mentioned in the previous paragraph, all Napolitano Homes floorplans are structural engineer certified. So not only do we take great care in designing floorplans that are modern, open, and beautiful, but we also ensure that each design is accompanied by structurally sound (and engineer approved) blueprints. In other words, we do NOT buy our floorplans out of a book and each home plan we offer has been heavily scrutinized by designers, builders, engineers, and more. As a result, our homes have many interesting features within their walls to allow for open spaces, soaring ceilings, and features that are so popular these days. One example is structurally engineered interior walls. With open and airy being the current trend, gone are the days of excessive columns and walls between rooms. Instead, we have reinforced beams and interior bracing on main walls that reduce sway and sheer in high winds.

Checks, Inspections, and more Checks

markupsWe have systems in place where each of our community builders inspect and re-inspect during the building process in order to make sure everything is built correctly. Markups, spray paint, and more are used to signal all of our trades that something needs to be addressed, well before any city inspector makes their way through to evaluate our homes. By staying ahead of the game and on top of the various trades, we ensure a solidly built home and a smooth transition between stages. Furthermore, we have several meetings with our new homeowners in order to keep them informed, including the Pre-Construction Meeting as well as the Framing Conference. We also have “Customer Wants to Know” forms that our buyers can fill out at any point of construction where their questions will be answered in a timely fashion. Good communication and thorough education makes for very happy buyers!

Pest Control

bora care2Unfortunately, Hampton Roads climate is perfectly suited for termites, which can wreak havoc on and severely weaken a home’s structure. Therefore, we take many steps to prevent such infestation in the homes we build. Rather than pumping hundreds of gallons of pesticides into the soil around the house, and poisoning the surrounding land and waterways due to runoff, we instead apply Bora-Care directly to the wood, concrete and foundation penetrations. Termites can’t consume the wood and they can’t tube over it. We also recommend that our homeowners enroll in a yearly termite prevention contract with a reputable pest control company, protecting their investment for years to come.

Innovative Standard Features

Napolitano Homes is leading the way in new homes building by being one of the first builders in the area to offer tankless water heaters as STANDARD in two of its communities: Viridian Reserve at Hickory and The Townes on the Square. Tankless, or “on demand,” water heaters save energy (and thus money) by eliminating the cost of keeping 40 to 50 gallons of water hot in a storage tank. These water heaters are just one of many features in our EnergySense Homes that are energy efficient and pocketbook friendly. For the technology fans out there, Napolitano Homes offers smart home capabilities as standard, where homeowners can control the HVAC, alarm, and more from the convenience of their smartphone screen.

New Home Buyer Seminar

Those who attend our New Home Buyer Seminars are some of the most educated home buyers in all of Suffolk, Chesapeake, and Virginia Beach. Held roughly once a month, Napolitano Homes invites all current buyers under contract to attend, along with anyone else who is interested in our buying, building, and warranty processes. John Napolitano, company vice president, hosts each hour long event, and he covers almost everything involved in purchasing a Napolitano Home including company history, contracts, pre construction meetings, framing conferences, final walkthroughs, closing, 12 week and 11 month reviews, the warranty program, and much more! It is a great forum for homeowners and prospects alike to get to know and ask questions of their builder.

Customized New Homes

Categories: Articles, New Homes Chesapeake, New Homes Virginia Beach | Posted: September 2, 2015

One of the most exciting and popular reasons to build a new home is the ability to design your dream home in a way that exactly suits your personal style and needs. Why should you settle for someone else’s choices in cabinets, countertops, fixtures, appliances, flooring, and more, when you can pick and choose every single detail to reflect your tastes in finishes? Napolitano Homes takes pride in our ability to meet those needs with countless selection choices, but we can also go a step further by transforming floorplans in almost any way you can imagine. Today, we’d like to focus on some of our favorite custom finishes that we worked on for happy new homeowners, and show off our Top 5 Custom Finishes of 2015!

Number 5: Luxurious Staircase in Viridian Reserve at Hickory

New homeowners opted to add this stylish, custom set of stained stairs and railings, along with a chunky post at the bottom. Gorgeous!

Number 4: Custom Wet Bar in Viridian Reserve at Hickory

Media Room and Wet Bar

The Waterford model has an optional Media/Rec Room on the second floor. Not only did this new home in Chesapeake get hand scraped hardwood floors in this room (and throughout most of the 2nd story), but it also received a custom wet bar installed along with a refrigerator and granite countertops. Perfect for making cocktails on movie night!

Number 3: Double Shower in Viridian Reserve at Hickory

Master Shower in Hickory

Full ceramic tile, two shower heads, separate controls, 2 niches with mosaic tile accents, and plenty of glass make for a luxurious shower experience in this new home in Hickory.

Number 2: Enormous Master Bath in Sajo Farm in Virginia Beach

Master Bath2 Master Shower

Master Shower2 Master Shower3

The Regent floorplan normally does have a separate tub and shower, however they are side by side in the Master Suite. In this special case, the homeowners moved walls and arranged to have an enormous tub on one side of the suite, and a fully tiled walk in shower with 2 shower heads (including a rain shower) and separate controls. It is truly a spa-like experience in this new Virginia Beach home.

Number 1: See Through Fireplace in Viridian Reserve at Hickory

One of our favorite customizations this year is this incredible see through fireplace that was just installed at a new home in Hickory. Once the deck is completed, it will be an indoor and outdoor oasis for relaxation and entertainment alike.

Upcoming New Communities

Categories: Announcements, New Homes Chesapeake, New Homes Suffolk VA, New Homes Virginia Beach | Posted: August 5, 2015

The second half of 2015 is going to be an exciting one for Napolitano Homes. Not only are we closing out two very popular neighborhoods in Bob White Landing and The Vineyards Nouveau Series, but we’re also working on three new communities to add to the Napolitano Homes list of new homes in Virginia Beach, Suffolk, and Chesapeake, VA.

Point Chesapeake on the Bay in Virginia Beach

One of the most exciting new upcoming projects is Point Chesapeake on the Bay. Formerly the Duck-In property at the eastern side of the Lesner Bridge, Point Chesapeake will be an exclusive condominium village community located where the Chesapeake Bay meets the Lynnhaven River. These Virginia Beach new homes will offer spectacular views over the water and renowned sunsets that paint the sky, and residents will enjoy easy access to the soft sands of the Chesapeake Bay. Also, the original gazebo will be preserved and renovated into the community’s clubhouse.

The Cove at Bennett's Creek Square

Next, The Cove is a much anticipated new phase that is coming to the already popular Bennett’s Creek Square neighborhood. This community in Northern Suffolk has consisted entirely of condominiums and townhomes to this point (The Nouveau Series and The Townes on the Square are currently selling, and the single floor living Signature Series has sold out), but Napolitano Homes has already begun moving dirt and developing the land in preparation The Cove’s single family homes. There will be several floorplans to choose from and build your new home in Suffolk, VA.

Milan Craftsman

Finally, Western Branch Reserve is the third community Napolitano Homes is developing in the second half of 2015. Located off of Bruce Road, there will be 71 homesites to choose from in order to build your dream new home in Chesapeake. Prices will be in the mid $300s, and floorplans will be the same lineup as the already popular Viridian Reserve at Hickory and Hanbury Manor in Great Bridge. Western Branch High School is right around the corner, shopping and conveniences are a street over on Taylor Road, and running/walking/biking trails surround all sides of the neighborhood including the Chesapeake Public Trail, the Gum Road Trail, and the Chesapeake Seaboard Coastline Trail, which extends from Suffolk, past Western Branch Reserve, and all the way to Virginia Beach!

If you have questions about these new homes or would like more information, please sign up on our Coming Soon page or call 757-435-6936!

Milan Walkthrough in Virginia Beach

Categories: Articles, Home of the Month, New Homes Virginia Beach | Posted: May 13, 2015

Fred Napolitano IIIWhen Napolitano Homes designs a brand new floorplan and the first of its kind is being built, we like to organize a company-wide framing conference on location in order to inspect and critique the plan. It is very important to walk through a new home design in its beginning stages, as 2D drawings and elevations only tell part of the story of a new home. The only real way to gauge a floorplan’s success is by having many eyeballs on it and gathering as much feedback possible.

As such, we started building a Milan in Sajo Farm, and we recently completed a framing tour to view this newest offering in the Napolitano Homes lineup. Fred Napolitano III (Sajo Farm’s site builder) led the meeting, which was attended by the Napolitano brothers, Head Builder, Marketing Director, Purchaser, site Sales Agents, and Designers, and all offered their input on this new home in Virginia Beach.

While a few slight adjustments were made to the plan in order to enhance flow and sight lines, the general consensus was that the Milan is overwhelmingly a winner and we are extremely excited for people to see this newly available model. The first floor has a formal Living Room, Dining Room, and possibly the largest Family Room we’ve ever constructed. This particular Milan model has the optional Sunroom that extends the entire width of the Family Room, making the space appear even more spectacular. Also downstairs is a very large Kitchen and a Master Down, making it the 4th home in Sajo Farm that allows for single floor living.

IMG_1435 IMG_1436 IMG_1438 IMG_1432

 

The Milan starts at 2,672 square feet, has 4 total Bedrooms and 2.5 Bathrooms, and starts at $446,270 in Virginia Beach. We look forward to finishing this one out and taking all kinds of interior and exterior photos of this exciting new floorplan!
