Braddock & Logan Homes, Inc.: Building Environments Of Quality & Value Throughout The SF Bay Area

For over sixty years, Braddock & Logan has gone beyond industry standards to create homes of lasting value; putting quality into every home they build - in places you can see and in even more places you will never see. Now the company is a proud participant of Build It Green ™, a program that focuses on building livable communities with enhanced energy efficiency and indoor air quality, while conserving resources and water. Build It Green is a non-profit membership organization (www.builditgreen.org) whose mission is to promote energy- and resource-efficient building practices. Braddock and Logan has also earned the ENERGY STAR® rating from the government by meeting U. S. Environmental Protection Agency guidelines for energy efficiency. Energy Star (www.energystar.gov) is a joint program of the EPA and the Department of Energy whose mission is to help consumers save money and protect the environment through energy efficient products and practices. An Energy Star home from Braddock & Logan is designed to exceed the State's energy efficiency standards for residential building by at least 15% and may include other features that can make them 20-30% more energy efficient than typical homes. This can add up to significant savings for every Braddock & Logan homeowner.

Reduced energy bills are not the only benefit of "building green." An environmentally responsible home allows owners to enjoy both pride of ownership and the peace of mind that comes with living in a home created by environmentally friendly building practices.  Here are just a few of the ways Braddock & Logan builds “green” to create homes of true value and their benefits:

  • Use of Thermo-foil barrier in the attic, a reflective insulation that helps reduce heating and cooling bills and can extend the life of heating & cooling systems.
  • A Fresh Air Ventilation System that allows the home to be ventilated with filtered air without opening windows.
  • High efficiency heating, ventilation & AC systems with environmentally responsible refrigerant keeps the home comfortable while guarding against global warming.
  • Use of sealed ducts with R-6 insulation that are pressure-balanced to improve efficiency.
  • Insulation that is made from 75% recycled materials.
  • All Braddock & Logan Green Communities recycle or reuse 50% or more of waste materials and have low water use landscaping installed in the front yards.
  • For added peace of mind, third-party experts inspect all homes to ensure these quality and environmental standards are in place.

In addition to environmentally responsible building methods, Braddock & Logan’s quality standards start at the foundation itself. The company uses a premium concrete mixture, a Class A vapor barrier and a post-tension foundation with encapsulated cables within, to ensure structural strength and reduced moisture penetration. Exterior walls are all three-coast stucco and sealed with quick flash to further reduced moisture penetration. Braddock & Logan also undertakes a thorough independent third party engineering inspection of each and every home they build. These inspections ensure that foundations, anchor bolt tie-downs, sheer-wall nailing and roof connections comply with the original plans. In fact, there are independent third party inspections to verify grading and drainage and ventilation, plumbing and electrical systems as well.  The bottom line is that Braddock & Logan delivers homebuilding quality the consumer can trust. Wherever you look in the SF Bay Area, Braddock & Logan provides vibrant new home communities-- from spacious single-family detached homes to elegant townhomes and duets –- available at price ranges that make sense.

Celebrating 61 years of building homes in the San Francisco Bay Area, Braddock and Logan encourages homebuyers to visit their communities Wind Rose in San Jose, Paulson Lane in Walnut Creek, Cantara & Salerno at Positano in Dublin, Tassajara Estates in Danville, Waterstone in Vallejo and Orchard View in the Central Valley town of Ripon. New communities will be opening at Monta Vista Place in San Jose and Millbrae Estates in Millbrae.
