How does the cost of a building a BIOTEKT home compare to the cost of buying a suburban home in a city?
Local costs vary from community to community, from country to country. We can provide accurate pricing for the panels and estimates for the cost of transportation to the site and installation of panels. Further than that, we assume all other costs depending on the cost of materials and labor that are sourced locally. Therefore we encourage the owner to employ the services of a local professional to handle all aspects of design, construction for a successful project.
What is the warranty on the home?
We offer 20 years warranty for the quality and integrity of the materials and against manufacturing defects when the installation is done following the manufacturer’s installation instructions. We also offer 5 or 10 years (depending on specific local factors) structural warranty when all construction requirements are met, the installation of panels and al other components follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
