Green Remodel

Remodeling is the ultimate in green.

Green building techniques do not have to cost you more green. In fact there are many ways to incorporate green building techniques into your remodel project that will cost little or nothing up front and some of them can mean substantial savings for you in the long run. They not only mean lower operating costs but can also provide a healthier home environment for you and your family.

Green building means using Energy Star rated appliances, but it also means donating your old building materials to charity organizations to be reused by others or using recycled or environmentally responsive products. It can mean taking the time to sort waste material and recycling products to minimize the amount of debris that goes to the landfill. Using proper building techniques and taking the time to see that the small details are done correctly can mean huge energy savings over the life of a home.

Indoor air quality is an area that should be of paramount importance to everyone that is interested in the health of their family. Studies have shown indoor air to be between 2 and 5 times more polluted than outdoor air. The harm to your health that can result from living in a home that does not provide for proper make up air to compensate for powerful ventilation fans or that has high quantities of mold or other toxins present can be devastating.
