Introduction             build green logo     green building pro logo     

"Green Construction" or green remodeling incorporates environmental considerations and efficiency into every step of the home building process to minimize the impact on the environment.  Decisions are based on the design, construction and operations of a home that positively impact energy and resource efficiency, as well as indoor environmental quality. The goal is to build the best, most sustainable, and practical green homes we can build for customers and the environment.


These are a few Green Construction options available today:

  • Energy efficient windows
  • Insulated sheathing options
  • More sustainable siding and roofing products
  • Low flow toilets and shower heads
  • Tank less water heaters
  • Manufactured floor joists, finger jointed studs
  • No or very low VOC paints
  • Non-formaldehyde adhesives
  • Recycled content carpeting, decking, insulation etc.
  • Improved insulation systems (both R-rating and air sealing)
  • Very high efficiency air filters  

Virtually every green home feature has available options that improve energy efficiency, resource efficiency and, in many cases, air quality. Incorporating these options, whether large or small, is Building Green.

 

Homeowners also enjoy Increased Comfort, Lower Utility Bills, Reduced Maintenance and Repair costs, Increased Value and Personal Satisfaction.
