Energy Efficient Homes in Westport, Ontario

The Peak of Comfort. Better air quality, and control of temperature makes for a comfort in your home you didn’t know was possible.

More energy efficient than new homes built to today’s Building Code, reducing your energy bills significantly.

Built to Last. The reason they are so efficient is because of how they are built. Solid at every connection, and incredible insulation keeps temperatures steady and homes resilient for years to come.

“Peace of mind” homes. It just feels good to breathe better air and know your home is using clean, environmentally sustainable technology.

We are finally at a time in the building industry, where we have the technology to create buildings that produce as much energy as they consume on an annual basis. The homes of Watercolour Westport are more comfortable, healthier to live in, and maintenance-free compared to any other house you have lived in. They also help prevent the causes of climate change.
