The Jones Group, L.L.C. is the product of three generations of home building and land development in East Louisville and Oldham County. The original company was founded by Carl “June” Clore in the early 1950’s and was passed down to his son-in-law Bob Jones in 1967, and most recently to his grandson Clay Jones in 1997. The three generations have built more than 1,000 homes in the local area.
How we compare to other builders
The Jones Group offers energy efficient home building materials and
quality construction. Take a look at how we compare to other builders.
Your Home will be LG&E ‘Energy Smart’
The Jones Group has made a commitment to build very energy efficient new homes by joining the LG&E ‘Energy Smart’ Home program. The standards of this program require certification by an independent contractor (Metro First) who tests and verifies that our homes are built to the rigorous Energy Smart standards. This program requires the use of advanced insulation techniques combined with energy efficient windows and heating and air equipment. This translates to much lower utility bills for our homeowners.

Low HERS Score Means Big Savings for You
HERS stands for ‘Home Energy Rating Score’. Our homes are tested and inspected by an Energy Rater who is professionally trained to score homes based upon their level of energy efficiency. This score is very similar to the MPG rating of a car. Most of our homes over the last few years have scored between 60 and 70, which means that our homes are 30-40% more energy efficient than another new home built to code, and as much as 60-70% more efficient than existing homes. All of this means that you will save $ every month on your utility bills.
Weather Shield (Aspire)
Weyerhaeuser Gold & Advantech
The Jones Group installs Weyerhaeuser Gold or AdvanTech Flooring, sub-floor which will not swell up, or come apart from rain, snow, or ice before the roof goes on your home. This provides a flatter floor, and also helps eliminate floor noise.
All of the following materials greatly improve the quality, longevity, and attractiveness of your home.
