About Burger Homes and Development, Inc.
Burger Homes builds luxurious, high performing, energy efficient homes in the Cedar Rapids & Marion area.
One of the many things that make Burger Homes stand out is our commitment to building energy efficient homes. Our goal is to build energy efficient homes in order to sustain low-cost and low-maintenance homes for our clients. We analyze each site specifically and consider various elements such as the localities of the sun and wind seasonally, to the topography and vegetation of each site. This means proper orientation of the house, along with intelligent placement of openings and vegetation to interact efficiently with the varying weather of Iowa. These passive systems lead to less money spent on heating, cooling and lighting.
In constructing our homes, careful use of materials and construction methods allows us to build superior performance homes. The Building Envelope is constructed consistently from the ground up with overall consideration for energy efficiency, including avoiding excessive construction waste. This is achieved through the conscientious assembly of all construction elements. When finished, our homes prevent leakage of air and promote greater insulation, producing quieter, more comfortable living.
The materials we choose to use also factor into our GREEN design. High-performance windows and insulation, properly installed, coincide with efficient ventilation systems to eliminate the excessive cost and wasted energy. Our homes are independently tested beyond code requirements to guarantee safer indoor air quality and economic energy performance.

“Bob and Deb make a wonderful team! Deb is very organized and Bob is very experienced and committed to building. They work very hard and complete the building project without a flaw. They quote the price right and are very transparent, so there is no confusion from the start. They make sure you get your home on time. From day one to handing over our beautiful dream home, they worked to keep us happy and certainly added their experience and feedback to do the right thing. Deb walked us through the selection process and was very supportive and Bob spent time patiently to understand our needs and dreams. They use quality products and surely have high standards. We are very pleased with the final result and would recommend them to anyone without any reservations. Even after building, they have been available for anything and everything in a timely fashion. We had a few additional issues during the harsh winter, Bob made sure he was available even at very late hours many times and made sure we were comfortable since we did not have much experience with home-related issues. We don’t think anyone can provide such exceptional service and craftsmanship in building homes!”Suman & Smitha
