Go Green

Why go green? It's easier on the earth, it lowers costs, and it provides a healthier home in which to live.

Homeowners who choose to remodel green can lower their energy consumption by 30-50%. Remodeling green by incorporating recycled materials or sustainable species will help homeowners to tread more lightly on Earth's natural resources.

No matter how small the project there are choices that can be made to improve energy efficiency, produce less waste and make responsible material choices.
