Vesta Building Industries was formed in 2003 by Scott Schmidt and Tony Beyers. Scott had been managing crews for a local builder and decided it was time for a change. Technology was rapidly changing the appliances and mechanical equipment in homes but the fundamental way they were being built was the same as it was 50 years ago.
With the Superior foundation system and the Structural Insulated Panels we use for exterior walls and roof, Vesta is building the strongest and most energy efficient homes in the area. While the shell is easily the most important aspect of building an energy efficient home or commercial structure, it is certainly not the only concern. This is why Vesta has also looked to high performance HVAC systems and windows as well as proper overhangs and placement on the lot.
Energy efficiency is really only part of building a healthy home though. Consideration of adhesives, carpets, paint and other items must also be evaluated. Many times you will hear that the air in your home is more unhealthy than the air outside and that is something we have strived to reverse. The durability of a home is another often overlooked item. Sure you can put a lifetime guarantee on vinyl siding and 30 or 40 years on the asphalt roof but if proper sealing and drainage are missed, you can have failures in many places around the home.
In 2008, Vesta purchased and moved into the building at 1219 Turner Street in Old Town, Lansing. The Old Town community has been a wonderful experience and we have since performed several renovations on commercial buildings in and around Old Town. We're always open during festivals so please stop by and see us anytime!
