Santa Rita New Homes

With wildfire season upon us, home buyers may be more skeptical about any factor of homebuying that pertains to fire risk, primarily location, structural quality and building materials. Is there a home building wood that can help protect the home from significant fire damage? Fortunately, there is. It’s Ecoblu wood, treated with proprietary Eco Red Shield™ - and it’s used to make the homes of Santa Rita at Otay Ranch.

The Santa Rita builder, Heritage Building & Development, was sold on this innovative material after it was proven to “significantly slows ignition and reduces smoke produced during a fire.” According to Heritage, Eco Red Shield™ Protected Lumber is a major breakthrough in lumber protection – and in fact, a major breakthrough in building with lumber as a whole. How does it work?

This revolutionary wood coating protects lumber by impregnating it with chemical solids that control moisture and protect the wood from mold, fire, termites and wood-rot. For Santa Rita at Otay Ranch, a community that truly understands the meaning of “home,” owners can rest assured that the place where their families nurture their dreams has an extra layer of protection. It’s not a guarantee, but it is added peace of mind.

For more details on the new homes at Santa Rita at Otay Ranch, visit the community at 1712 Thompson Ave., Chula Vista, CA 92913, or call (619) 934-7950.
