Remodeling – San Jose – Green Remodeling
If you are thinking about remodeling your home, you may be wondering what is involved in a green or environmentally friendly remodel.
Typically when you hear about “green remodeling”, what is meant is some combination of the following:
- Using less energy
- Using less water
- Using fewer toxics
- Using materials that off gas less
- Using materials whose manufacturing has a lesser environmental impact
When someone is trying to convince you that some product or service is “green”, use the list above as a means to validate their claim.
Ask them how does it do anything on the above list.
If they have answers that make sense to you, great! Accept those answers.
If their answers do not seem sensible or reasonable, they may be practicing what is called “green washing”, which is applying the label of “green” to what they sell in an effort to improve their marketing, without actually understanding what they are talking about, or have done anything to make their product or service more green.
If you are remodeling your home, now is the time to think about these things.
Once your remodeling is finished, it is too late to implement some really good ideas.
