The Eichler Home is a contemporary styled home featuring open living areas, flat or slightly pitched roofs, and extensive glass areas. Built on a concrete slab, these homes introduced the use of hydronic radiant panel heat for the heating system. They were built using the "community" concept from 1950 - 1965 in Northern California, between San Rafael and San Jose.

There are approximately 11,000 homes in these areas. In recent years, many Eichler homes with older radiant panel heating systems have been developing leaks or other service issues. We offer these homeowners "peace of mind" by providing solutions to these problems in a professional, courteous, and knowledgeable way.
