More than ever before, homeowners today are aware that they have a responsibility to be Eco-friendly when remodeling. Having a “green” home is not only in the best interests of the homeowner but it is also in the best interests of the community. The key to success is selecting the best products while saving money, not just for today but also for later on down the road. A few simple tips are important to help homeowners who do not know where to begin.
One solution that saves on energy and material costs is through the use of vinyl. Vinyl siding, vinyl fencing and vinyl windows are three areas where homeowners can save on energy costs as well as material costs. Vinyl products are long lasting and low maintenance while also providing insulation
Many homeowners are surprised to learn that roofing materials have also gone “green”. Engineered cedar and slate roofing is made of recyclable materials and lasts for years. It is very easy to install, cutting down on waste which also saves the homeowner money.

Another important area where the homeowner wants to get the most for the money is through energy consumption. Half of the energy used in homes goes to heating and air conditioning. The mechanical heating and air conditioning units are more efficient and quiet, especially when combined with energy-efficient windows. Real savings can be realized. Energy is preserved, thermal insulation is improved and dust and noise is reduced.
Homeowners are finding it easy to be “green” with a few helpful tips along the way. They are finding it beneficial to not only save money but also to conserve the environment in ways they were not aware of.
