Green Remodeling

Green remodeling projects are designed to minimize negative impacts in natural resources and the community. By going green, you can make your home more energy efficient, provide a healthier indoor atmosphere and conserve natural resources.

While most homeowners may think green remodeling projects are more expensive than traditional remodeling, that isn’t necessarily the case. Green remodeling can actually save you money during the remodeling project, as well as afterwards!

  • Making your home more energy efficient you reduce your energy consumption thus reducing your energy bills.
  • Providing a healthier indoor air quality, you reduce allergens and potentially reduce overall health costs.
  • Waste and water costs can also be reduced saving even more money.

Plus, green remodeling doesn’t have to be complex. Simple changes in your home remodeling project can have big impacts.

  • Including more natural light in your home remodeling designs
  • Using recycled plastic for decking materials
  • Using recycled items instead of new
  • Adding additional insulation
  • Installing programmable thermostats
  • Replacing older appliances with more energy efficient appliances
  • Replacing carpeting with more environmentally friendly flooring (cork or bamboo)
  • Replacing your existing hot water heater with the newer tankless or hybrid water heaters
  • Performing Home Energy Audits to identify and stop air leaks throughout the home
  • Designing a landscape that utilizes more shade and conserves water
  • Replacing older windows or storm doors with ones that are more energy efficient
One of the most important aspects of green remodeling is ensuring the new high efficiency renovations work efficiently with the existing home structure and appliances. This is why it is so important to work with a green remodeling contractor that can anticipate any issues and take appropriate steps to avoid issues early rather than later.

Green remodeling ensures that your home is more energy efficient, more cost efficient, and provides a healthier environment for you and your family. Of course by minimizing your home’s footprint, you are also ensuring a brighter future for generations to come.
