Why Choose Eco-Friendly Remodeling?

Posted on: November 26, 2017

In an effort to reduce their impact on the environment, individuals and industries across the globe have adopted a number of green initiatives and practices. Architects, designers, and builders are among those who have acknowledged the need for change, and embraced a number of solutions geared towards environmental sustainability, using eco friendly materials and practices. Whether you’re planning on remodeling your San Diego area home, revamping your landscaping, or building a new custom home, you don’t need to sacrifice the quality or beauty of your project to do your part for the environment—all you have to do is partner with the right team of dedicated professionals.

Enhanced Air Quality

While you have no control over the quality of the air outside, you can breathe easier inside your home by using eco-friendly building materials and practices, including:

  • Minimizing VOC emissions –Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) such as formaldehyde, benzene, and other carcinogens are found in a number of everyday household products, furnishings, and building supplies. As toxic gases are released, occupants may suffer from dizziness, nausea, fatigue, respiratory ailments, or sustain damage to vital organs and the nervous system. Eco-friendly remodeling using low VOC building materials and exterior finishes helps to create a healthier, cleaner indoor environment.
  • Adequate air exchange – Sufficient airflow and ventilation are necessary to cycle the air between the indoors and outside, preventing a buildup of pollutants. Inadequate ventilation can also lead to the growth of mold and mildew, particularly in high moisture areas such as kitchens and bathrooms.

Less Waste

Reusing materials such as reclaimed wood and products made from recycled paper, glass, wood, or metal, help keep these items out of the landfill.

Reduced Environmental Impact

By increasing the overall efficiency of your home, it uses less energy. Eco-friendly options include:

  • Installing ENERGY STAR® qualified appliances
  • Adding insulation
  • Choosing locally sourced products
  • Incorporating native plantings in to your landscape design

Increased Value

Buyers are willing to pay more for a home that is safe, efficient, and green.

Water Savings

The water conversation is vital in the San Diego area, where permanent water use restrictions are a way of life. Save money and resources with green building practices that use less water to run your home, such as:

  • Smart irrigation systems
  • Efficient plumbing design for new homes or whole-home remodels
  • Low-flow plumbing fixtures in your custom bathroom renovation
