Green Remodeling in Redmond, WA

What is Green Building?
Reducing or eliminating the environmental impact that we have on building structures is a good way to define green building. Selecting building materials that are non-toxic, sustainable, earthly, and people-friendly are often chosen to ensure a positive impact within the climate. Utilizing alternative power sources and energy-efficient appliances also play a role in green remodeling.
We take the time to research newly released products and practices so that we can improve your home's performance and limit the environmental impact that new remodeling projects can have.

We practice material efficiency by using sustainable, recyclable products that require fewer resources, like energy and water. Our environmentally responsible products help us minimize waste that would otherwise end up in landfills. By going green, you’re reducing your carbon footprint, helping protect forests and wildlife, and improving water and air quality.
Indoor air can be 2-5 times more toxic than outside air, and is often linked to health issues, including allergies, asthma, heart problems, and lung cancer. The EPA ranked indoor air pollution among the top five environmental dangers. Green home remodels emphasize natural light and fresh air, while using good ventilation techniques and low-toxic materials.
Going green may cost more up front, but it saves you money in the long run. According to the US Department of Energy, the average family spends $2,200 per year on energy bills. Energy efficient upgrades can reduce that cost by 30%. Green building materials also cost less to maintain, and last longer than their non-sustainable counterparts.
Homebuyers are increasingly drawn to environmentally friendly designs and materials. The National Association of Home Builders states 89% of buyers desire Energy Star-rated windows, while 81% desire an Energy Star rating for the entire home. According to Seattle.gov, 96% of homebuyers are willing to pay more for a home with green features, and 80% of homebuyers claim new homes aren’t meeting their environmental expectations.
Green remodeling in Redmond WA protects your health, reduces stress, and improves your quality of life. Functional, beautiful, environmentally-friendly designs can turn your home into a sanctuary from the chaotic world outside.
