Invest in your health
Did you know that Americans spend 80 to 90% of their time indoors? Fall into this category? You may be being exposed to little or no “fresh air” for the greater part of the day. This is not a good thing due to typical construction methods. Unfortunately, standard building techniques have forced us to paint our walls, finish our floors, and fill the joints of our building with toxic chemicals. We are actually polluting our indoor living spaces.
These chemicals include volatile organic compounds (VOCs), formaldehyde, and much more. Did you know the chemicals in standard building products are ”off-gassing” into your home for many years after they have been installed? Do not overlook or brush off this fact. There have actually been numerous reports of local homes and buildings making occupants physically sick due to these toxins.
As your premier Bellevue home improvement contractor, we are dedicated to raising awareness to these realities. On the bright side, green remodeling addresses these major problems. Green practices prohibit the use of toxic materials and keep the health and comfort of occupants as a primary focus.
Invest in green remodeling
You will get a higher resale and appraisal value, guaranteed. The life-cycle cost of a home is its cost throughout its entire life. What does that mean for you? An upfront investment of just 2%, on average, will result in life-cycle savings of 20% of the total construction costs. That means you can expect and average of more than ten times your initial investment over the life of your home.
Lower your maintenance costs to save you money and protect the environment at the same time just by making simple performance choices. The energy savings alone could pay for your green remodel several times over.
Also, it is noteworthy to mention that nationwide there are rebates, programs, and other incentives to promote green building practices.
