Why did I choose a Green Home?

For my family.

  What is your family breathing?

Did you know that, on average, Americans spend 90% of their time indoors?

Did you know that, according to EPA studies, air pollutant levels inside your home can be up to ten times higher than the air pollutants you breathe outdoors?

The good news: indoor air quality is an issue that you can do something about. Eliminate mold, radon, and asthma concerns. How? Green homes and green products can help keep your family healthy and reduce the risks associated with air pollutants.

  Live comfortably in your home.

You and your family should be comfortable in your home – after all, it’s your place to relax and enjoy time spent together. Good news: You don’t have to change your lifestyle to live green.

Green homes are designed to work with nature, so you save money while you enjoy the same modern comforts you’re accustomed to: electronics, heating and cooling, water heaters, dishwashers, etc.

The difference is in the building practices and features that go into your green home. It’s not more difficult to build green… it’s simply different. Rest assured that green homes are far from primitive – you and your family will continue to enjoy all of the modern conveniences that you love, while your home does all the work to conserve energy and produce a healthier environment.

For my budget.

  Savings every month – Do we have your attention yet?

Did you ever imagine that your dream home could actually save you money? Not once, but every single month for as long as you own your home. Think about that. Your monthly savings over years spent in your home can add up to a tremendous amount… all while enjoying all the comforts you appreciate coming home to.

  Increase the value (and resale value) of your home.

A lot of people worry that green homes and products are more expensive than typical alternatives. They want to get the best deal for their money and only consider how much money it will save them today.

But if you truly want the most for your money, it’s essential to consider the long-term savings of going green. While it’s true that many green homes and products can cost you more today, it won’t take long for your investment to pay for itself, plus more.

Welcome to the future of the homebuilding industry. Going green is no trend. Homebuyers are demanding green homes for their potential long-term cost savings, health benefits, and eco-consciousness.

This demand is important to remember when you’re considering the purchase of a new home, or a remodel. Adding eco-friendly products during a remodel could not only save resources for you along the way, but it also help your home stand out to buyers if, one day, you’re ready to sell.

Invest in green homes and products that are built to last, increase your home’s value, and save you money along the way!

For the environment.

  Building today for tomorrow.

It’s hard to ignore the effect that our modern lifestyle has on the environment. In the interest of preserving the planet and its resources for our children, our grandchildren and their grandchildren, it’s important to do what we can today to go green.

Even small changes make a difference. Because when everyone makes a small change, it adds up to make a huge impact!

Choosing a green home can make a monumental difference. Green homes work with nature to utilize fewer resources to sustain the environment for generations to come.
