BackRecycle, Reduce, Reuse with Remodeling04/25/17

We are excited to take part in Earth Day through our remodeling projects!

How you may ask?

Here are just three ways remodeling is Earth Day friendly:

  • Some home remodelers, such as our very own President and CEO Michael Dodd, are Green Certified Professionals (GCP).
    • This certificate acknowledges builders, remodelers and other industry professionals who integrate green and sustainable building principles into projects. Such principles include building science, indoor air quality, renewable energy, deconstruction, energy conservation and the green processes associated with building trades.
  • Remodeling instead of building new saves on resources and creates less waste.
    • Renovation creates a much smaller carbon footprint than constructing a new home. According to EcoVision, it can take up to 75 years for a 30 percent more efficient new building to save more CO2 emissions through energy preservation than from a remodeled home.
  • Kitchen Remodels done right invite people to spend more time in the kitchen.
    • This encourages residents to do more meal preparation at home instead of going out to eat as much, which is a greener activity. Eating at home more means less food and resource waste than going to a restaurant.


A few specific ways you can stay green during your remodeling process:

  • Use reclaimed wood when furnishing your kitchen.
  • Re-use other pieces of furniture and fixtures around your home no longer in use such as bricks, cabinetry, molding and light fixtures.
  • Donate items you don’t use or need anymore instead of throwing them out.
  • Purchase appliances that are energy efficient or have the energy star certification.
  • Keep your home well insulated. This will help bring your utility costs down and protect your from the elements.
