What is Green Building?
Green building is an attitude. It is a lifestyle and our future. It’s about making a difference by protecting natural resources, saving energy and conserving water. Green building is not a product but a process. It is good design and good construction. It’s being practical about the largest single investment for your future. It is getting the most out of every utility dollar and is about comfort and healthy living.
Why Build Green?
Building green is good for your wallet and your health. Green homes mean more return on your investment and cleaner indoor air quality. You will find increased comfort with lower operating costs and green building is customizable to your lifestyle. Green building is flexible with a wide array of construction materials and accommodating use of space. You can structure the design of your home to meet any desired look or feel. Building green will make you feel good and it is the right thing to do.
Benefits of Living Green
These are just a few benefits of living green but most importantly consider the health factor for you and your family. A green home protects against air pollutants and mold as much as it promotes water and energy conservation.
