Why bother greening your next remodel? It's simple: You play your part in helping the planet and get a higher resale value for your home. Green remodeling is an approach to home improvement that makes your home look better and work better - all while saving you money on utilities, adding value, and enhancing your health and the environment.
Phoenix is beginning to catch up to cities like Seattle, where green home construction has become the standard.

Overcoming the learning curve is much easier with the right remodeling partner. It's important for you as the consumer to make educated decisions on which green building products will best serve your needs.

Green products are becoming more accessible to the general public as manufactures compete and develop new products and technologies to meet the growing green building and remodeling demands.

Before you get concerned about costs or available selections of green products, talk to your remodeling company. An expert remodeler will tell you if your desire to go green will deliver significant cost, health and aesthetic benefits.
