What makes CORVINELLI HOMES different
The owner John Corvinelli first stepped on the worksite alongside his father around the age of 4 in 1967. He grew up on the job site developing the Hunt Club area. Then in the 80’s and 90’s they built many streets within the Russell and Embrun area. In the Fall of 2006 the construction Russell Trails subdivision was started.
John earned his diploma from Algonquin in 1985 as an Architectural Technician. While building homes an opportunity arouse to be in business with his sister which they owned and operated Limoges hardware store and lumber yard for 11 years.
Returning to the housing industry in 2004, with a commitment to building green and Energy Star® homes. John is part of the Net Zero Committee and always taking courses to learn better building practices and integrate them into our homes. We are proud to say we are amongst the top builders for energy efficient homes, which in turn benefits our clients and their families by saving money and energy.
In 2015 John’s daughter Amy graduated from Algonquin as an Architectural Technician working alongside her father as a third generation.
Most of our trades have been with us for over 25 years, with second and third generations taking over. This is unique and something we value very much. We are a small builder allowing us to provide a quality product delivered with utmost attention to detail by all trades.
Why choose Corvinelli from a construction perspective?
Occupant comfort is a top priority in our builds. Whether it’s through saving on utilities, the working flow of the home or the unique touches included making it our client’s home.
Every home is Energy Star® Certified and given its own individual certificate. Each home is given a blower door test to see how much leakage occurs in a home and our results are in the top numbers on average 0.82 – ACH@50. We achieve these numbers through varies methods: additional insulation installed properly from under the basement slab to the roof, onsite supervision daily by the owner, integrating new building innovations to always improve our building practices and by building less per season. We will take a pat on the back for not using an air sealing technic for the building envelope and are achieving numbers above and beyond the Energy Star® requirements.
What does this really mean for you? Lower utility bills, enhanced performance, environmental protection, efficient heating, consistent heating throughout the house and whole-house mechanical ventilation system.
