A home remodel is an excellent way to add functionality to your home while also increasing its value. However, many homeowners jump into a remodel without fully vetting their contractor and the techniques, as well the types of materials that will be used. This can result in unsatisfactory, low-quality results that will require another remodel much sooner than anticipated. Fortunately, the solution to ensuring your home remodel is successful starts by choosing a green remodeling contractor like ecobeco. Our team of expert home designers, project managers, and tradesmen and women will ensure a fantastic experience from start to finished remodel.
What Makes Green Remodeling Different?
You just want to remodel your home, so why would you ever decide to go with a “green” remodel?
Choosing a contractor that specializes in green remodeling has many benefits to ensure that your project is completed the right way, the first time.
Remodeling Done Right
Unlike a regular remodel that will only address the aesthetics of your project, a green remodel will address any issues that might be uncovered during the process. For example, if you’re building an addition, we won’t just slap together a few walls, add some basic insulation, and put up the drywall. Instead, we’ll build it right with adequate air sealing and high-performance insulation to ensure the new space doesn’t just look good but also performs by being comfortable and energy efficient. The end result is a more valuable remodel, one that serves your family when you’re living in your home and also pays dividends if you ever sell.
Quality, Durability & Health
Another key element of green remodeling is using high-quality, durable, and sustainable materials. Remodeling, updating, or building an addition on your home and using low-quality materials will result in something that might look nice for a short time, but will ultimately disappoint. By using high-quality techniques and materials, your home remodel will stand the test of time in both the short- and the long-term.
A green remodel will also offer peace of mind since you’ll know that the materials used are nontoxic — preserving the health of you and your family and your home’s indoor air quality. The materials used during a green remodel are all built to last — so although some of them might be slightly more expensive initially, over time they quickly pay for themselves.
