What is Green Building?

back to blog

Green building is the practice of creating homes out of materials that are environmentally responsible, using processes that create a resource-efficient home — throughout it’s life.

Also known as “sustainable” or a “high-performance” home, a green home is a highly efficient home. A green home is built with products that are better for the environment such as recycled countertops and composite decking, and also extend into lighting and plumbing fixtures that help minimize the consumption of water, energy and natural resources. Green building also means minimizing environmental effects – such as waste and pollution.

And, at the end of the day, building a green home promotes healthier living environments benefiting the people — the families — who call them home.
