Home Remodeling: Go Green without Breaking the Bank

If you’re planning any type of remodeling project, keep in mind that it’s easier than ever to go green in the world of home improvement. Not only is it hip to be green but environmentally responsible building practices can save you money in a number of ways, including your energy and water utility bills. Contrary to popular belief, many green building techniques will not significantly increase the cost of your home improvement project.

While some of the most cutting-edge sustainable architecture and design can cost more, many green techniques are more mainstream, costing less than most homeowners might assume. You’ll want to find a contractor who shares your vision for adding green additions to homes and brings ideas to the table to achieve it. can help you find quality contractors for your green remodeling project.

Here are some ways to go green without busting your home improvement budget:

* Increase energy efficiency – New windows reduce energy use. Many window manufacturers are now making ultra-efficient windows that can significantly reduce heat loss in the winter and sun glare that spikes cooling bills in the summer. Equipping your home with the most energy efficient windows you can afford now will let you save on energy bills in the future.

* Reuse materials – Salvaged building materials can help reduce the cost of home remodeling projects on your home and have less impact on the environment than new materials. In many cities, rebuilding centers collect and offer for sale used, but still usable, building materials. Using salvaged building materials will help keep those items out of landfills.

* Conserve water – If you are thinking of changing the landscaping around your home, keep water conservation in mind. Look for hardy plants and grasses that require less water, even if you live in a wet climate. Using these types of plants means you’ll water less, which not only reduces your utility bills, but it’s good for the environment as well
