Superior Energy Efficiency Achieved in Flint, TX Custom Home

Hunt Custom Homes is well known for their expert building practices and thoughtful innovation in homes they build in Tyler and throughout East Texas. That’s why they partnered with our local experts at Kinzler Construction Services to ensure their new build in Flint would achieve maximum energy efficiency.

We made design and product recommendations to help meet new code requirements and installed Blown-In-Blanket (BIBS) insulation on exterior walls and blown-in insulation in the attic.

We followed our proven process for quality installation by inspecting the completed job and grading our installers on the quality of their work.

LEADERSHIP: Crucial Conversations

While the thought of having difficult conversations may fill most of us with dread, avoiding conflict is a big mistake. In fact, such conversations are absolutely crucial to an organization’s health and overall success. Sure, the tension may feel high—but ignoring incompetence or bad behavior only creates alienation and a culture of mistrust.

In this video, Kinzler Chief Talent Officer Brian Schwartze shares practical ways to defuse the situation and achieve a successful resolution.

Kinzler Construction Services Supports Mission to Insulate African Church

Kids and Water
Please click on the image above to make a tax deductible gift to support this mission.

Kinzler Construction Services is partnering with a non-profit charity founded in Ames, Iowa to insulate a church in the East African nation of Uganda. It’s part of Kinzler’s core focus to serve others, build relationships and enrich lives.

Brian Schwartze, Kinzler Vice President of Sales and Marketing, and his 13 year-old son JB will spend nearly two weeks in Uganda. Part of their mission there includes insulating a church and school in the village of Obule. Kinzler Construction Services donated radiant barrier for the project, an insulation system which uses a type of heavy duty aluminum foil which can limit up to 97% of radiant heat transfer.

“Radiant barriers work exceptionally well in sunny climates, like they experience in Uganda,” said Kevin Kinzler, Executive Chairman and Founder of Kinzler Construction Services. “A significant amount of the heat transfer into and out of that church is through radiation. We are happy to be able to support this project which will make a positive impact for those living in this African village.”

Brian and JB also plan to dig wells, supporting the mission of the Clean Water Movement, and put on a baseball clinic or two.

“I’m most excited about this trip because I want to make a large impact on people’s lives,” says JB, who will attend Gilbert Middle School this fall. “I want to make the world better one step at a time. I really want to meet the kids and learn a new culture. When we are there we are going to have a baseball clinic. That will be awesome to teach something that I love to people across the world.”
