When it comes to remodeling, it goes without saying that there is always waste, and lots of it! As an eco-friendly general contractor, KBC Remodeling Services can help you plan and create a renovation with the environment in mind. Our all-inclusive team of designers and contractors will help you plan and create a sustainable remodel that offers beauty and functionality to ensure that you, our environmentally conscious client, can feel good about your project.
Things to Consider when Remodeling Green
Take into consideration the size and scope of your remodel. Unless you are building on to accommodate a growing family or require additional space, try instead to improve the home’s function with the square footage it offers. A thoughtful design and remodel will reduce the costs of building materials and waste and keep energy costs in check.
Opt for Sustainable or Reclaimed Materials
At KBC Remodeling Services, we believe in doing our part to protect the environment by reducing the ‘carbon footprint’, which is why we offer a variety of sustainable and reclaimed building materials. We partner with local businesses that provide sustainable building materials, such as bamboo flooring and smart glass windows. Not only does this reduce outsourcing and shipping, but it also helps support our community. When it comes to repurposed materials, we have sources throughout Colorado that provide a wide range of quality recycled building materials.
Improve Indoor Air Quality
Indoor air quality is essential for good health and the environment. Improving the air quality in your home by reducing off-gassing is an essential aspect of the green remodel. Today’s building materials offer low or no VOCs and formaldehyde free products so that you can breathe easier while doing your part to help the environment.
Embrace Natural Light
Incorporating natural light into your remodel can help reduce energy usage. With careful planning, your renovation can be more than just a visual change. It can enhance comfort and lower utility bills, making it a win-win for the environment and your budget. Consider the addition of solar panels, solar tubes, or reflective roof coatings to reap the rewards that natural light offer.
Recycle, Recycle, Recycle
Residential and commercial remodels create a lot of waste, most of which can be recycled, repurposed, or donated. At KBC Remodeling Services, we strive to reduce waste by ensuring that any building materials we replace or don’t use are properly recycled.
