Green Building Products
There are a lot of considerations when choosing the building materials and new products that will be used in your renovation. The terms “green” and “sustainable” can refer to a number of different qualities. Ideally, we would like to use only products that are manufactured in a way that is not harmful to the Earth or to the workers who produce them. We also would like our homes to be built with safe and energy-efficient materials.
The Greaves Construction design/ build team can provide you with all of the sources and manufacturing specifications for various elements you might like to utilize. Lower your carbon footprint with materials that were manufactured with recycled content. Protect your own personal indoor environment with low-emission paints, adhesives and carpets. Tremendous water savings can be achieved with contemporary plumbing fixtures and irrigation systems.
Selecting sustainable wood products, like bamboo flooring, not only preserves our forests, but also gives your house a bit of classic style, with finishes that complement any décor. Green building contractors in Tampa and Hillsborough County offer roofing, insulation, engineered lumber and siding solutions with a variety of certifications that attest to recycled content, green manufacturing techniques and expected energy savings.
The US Department of Energy created the Energy Star program to assist homeowners in comparing the expected power consumption of similar products. Most consumer appliances are eligible for Energy Star rating. You can easily compare the expected lifetime fuel costs of different models of furnaces, heat pumps and air conditioning units. Roofing materials, windows and doors, and insulation applications can all carry Energy Star ratings.
