Green Building and Greener Home Improvement Tips

Building in a green and sustainable way is becoming a new standard for the modern construction industry. Nearly 75 percent of all residential and commercial Architects are now open to specifying green building materials, and sustainable design for new construction and home renovation projects.

Building in a green and sustainable way does not have to be exclusive to only new construction projects. In fact, green home improvements can be integrated with your existing home renovations and improvement projects. For instance, replacing your old windows with energy efficient ones, can result in significant energy savings, and help reduce the carbon foot print of your home.

If your home needs a new roof, then installing an energy efficient cool metal roofing system will provide additional energy savings, and piece of mind from knowing that your home is now protected with a long lasting and durable metal roof that is fully recyclable whenever it has to be replaced. Although, it is quite plausible that your new metal roof will outlast your home itself!

Insulation is also a very important part of building green. A properly insulated home, or a building requires significantly less energy to maintain cool temperature in the summer, and to keep it warm in the winter. Did you know that many older homes built before year 1970 in the U.S do not have sufficient levels of insulation. It may be very beneficial to correct any inadequacy in your home insulation before taking on any other green remodeling retrofits. By properly insulating your home, you will be able to significantly improve the energy efficiency of your home, which will help you save money on your home heating and cooling costs, as well as help make a small, but positive environmental impact.

Remember, that even a small action of a one person can lead to a positive change. So do what you can, start today, and follow the three "R"s; Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.
