Remodeling Home Improvement Contractors

For many - if not all - homeowners who have inherited or spent a major portion of their life in conventional, traditional homes, it is simply not possible to turn over a new, more sustainable leaf and buy a newer, greener, home. In such circumstances, home remodeling, chiefly where one can replace existing elements and features with more eco-friendly ones - is a great option. Remodeling plans and models vary from home to home, but in general follow a basic principle of focusing on a few key aspects - which include energy efficiency, the use of as many sustainable products as possible, and replacing older and traditional systems with upgraded ones.

Generally, the first step in approaching this is by focusing on basic structural elements. This includes upgrading and/or adding insulation to crawl spaces, attics and walls, finding and sealing air leaks, and replacing outdated windows and doors - to prevent unauthorized leakages and wastage. The second step is to replace and/or tweak existing energy systems with renewable options - which can depend very less (if any) on fossil fuels and release little-to-no carbon wastage. This includes installing solar panels, turbines and even geothermal pumps to power the home’s energy requirements. The third step is to focus on the water system - using low-flow fixtures, such as showerheads, faucets, and toilets, the amount of water consumed can be significantly reduced, without having to sacrifice on functionality. The final focus would be on materials used indoors - for instance, using reclaimed wood for furniture and linoleum or bamboo for flooring or using energy-efficient green light fixtures among many others.
