Lowered cost of ownership and energy bills. The EPA's Energy Plus standards require the home to be at least 15% more efficient than typical code built homes (2004 International Residential Code) and include additional energy-saving features that typically make them 20-30% more efficient than standard homes!

How do I set up my mailbox?

Many of our communities have private mailboxes. Most of these communities require new homeowners to contact the management company for that owner's association in order to get mailbox keys. The contact information for the owner's association will be in your Riptide Closing Book you received at the Final Walk.

Otherwise, visit the nearest Federal Post Office with your Closing Settlement Statement to be issued the keys to your community mailbox.

Do I get to meet my builder?

We will set up a mandatory Pre-Construction Meeting for you to discuss the construction process and selections of your home. At this time you will get to meet your Riptide Builder team in person!

Who do I contact if I have a question about my home while it is under construction?

You should contact your Build Superintendent.

Who do I contact after I close to remove a temporary meter from my yard?

You should contact our Client Relations Manager.
