PEX Plumbing

Categories: Uncategorized | Posted: August 11, 2014

With Legacy Homes, you’ll discover that what’s behind your walls is just as critical to what’s holding them up when it comes to building an energy-efficient home. One of those important features in our homes is PEX plumbing, a superior and more convenient way to routing water throughout your home in a way that saves you money and minimizes hassle.  

Why Pex?

PEX, or crosslinked polyethylene, is part of a water supply piping system that delivers hot and cold pressurized water throughout a home or building. With several advantages over metal or rigid plastic pipe systems, PEX is quickly replacing copper pipes as the next advancement and dominant choice for residential plumbing due to its inherent benefits.

It’s Better!

Unlike copper and iron pipes that can experience corrosion leaks, PEX resists the scale buildup common with copper pipes, and does not pit or corrode when exposed to public water supplies. PEX plumbing doesn’t require soldering either, eliminating the health hazards involved with lead-based solder and acid fluxes.

It’s Flexible!

Due to the flexible nature and ability to run straight from its water source to an outlet, PEX pipes typically have fewer sharp turns and joint turbulence which can disrupt water pressure. The results is a maintained water pressure to where you want it most, at your faucets, showers, and toilets. PEX also allows for quieter water flow without the “hammering” noise often associated with copper piping.

It Saves You Money!

PEX plumbing doesn’t transfer heat like copper plumbing does. This helps conserve energy and decrease heat loss by allowing more hot water to reach its destination rather than losing heat and energy during flow. PEX can also turn 90° corners without the need for elbow fittings, and is also much more resistant to freeze breakage than copper or plastic pipes, which reduces opportunity for leaks and expensive service calls.

Categories: Floorplan | Posted: July 28, 2014

Legacy Homes is excited to announce our newest floor plan… the Lexington!  This elegant, French Country design is one of our most versatile floor plans and can be built in Heritage Brook, Applewood, and Colonial Pointe!  This plan has many flexible options and really showcases Legacy Homes EASYLIVING™ designs with the ability to choose several different options to customize the plan for your needs and the way YOU live!

The Lexington features 4 Bedrooms, 3 Full Bathrooms, and a Flex Room where you can choose the Formal Dining Room option with exquisite trim, coffered ceiling, and an elegant chandelier OR you can choose the Study option with private, elegant French doors.  The plan also features an oversized kitchen island for cooking, eating in, or entertaining.  The Drop Zone Cubbies is great for kids to drop their backpacks and coats after school when entering from the garage which keeps clutter out of the Gourmet Kitchen! 

One of the innovative designs of the Lexington is the 3rd Garage Bay Options.  Some need that space for a third car, whereas others just want extra storage space or a garage workshop.  Others would rather convert that 3rd Bay to living space and put in a Craft room or a Game room!  Every buyer is different and with Legacy Homes’ functional and flexible designs, we allow YOU to decide how you want to use that space!

The Lexington with Bonus has THREE Upper Level Bonus Options to choose from.  A large Bonus Room with a supersized storage closet is one option.  Want the convenience of another full bath upstairs?  No problem, we can add that.  Have a large family and need another bedroom?  We’ve can add that too with the 5th bedroom option and you get to keep the Bonus Space!  The choice is yours with this innovative, functional, and flexible floor plan that offers many different options for your family!
