At 512 Builders we have many strategies to increase the long-term value and quality of your home, including a project-wide approach to using the best practices and materials for lowering future energy bills and decreasing the home's overall impact on the environment.
Some of our Green Building/Remodeling Services are listed below:
-Using recycled materials
-Indoor Air Quality
INITIAL SITE PLAN
By utilizing existing mature trees and minimizing windows facing the afternoon sun, a home's energy consumption is greatly reduced. Additionally, there are many types of functional architectural details that we can also incorporate in the design phase that will minimize this exposure when necessary.
USING RECYCLED MATERIALS AND REDUCING WASTE
We use recycled building materials or those from recognized sustainable technologies wherever possible. We also reduce waste through detailed computer-based estimating and ordering in optimal dimensions for the project along with constant monitoring and training of our subcontractors to help us in this effort.
ENERGY EFFICIENCY & INDOOR AIR QUALITY
We use radiant barrier roof decking, Low-E double-glazed windows, and high-efficiency air conditioning and heating units to make your home more comfortable and to help you save on utility bills long after your home is complete. This includes many small details that can make a big difference in indoor air quality such as low VOC paint, properly sealed air ducts and intakes, and proper flashing and weather-stripping of windows and doors.
