In order to practice a more efficient and eco-friendly lifestyle, home improvements can not only improve the value of your home but have your home operate more efficently. So at GreenWerks, we welcome you to expand your home or office with our green additions that allow you to have more while consuming less. During home improvements or additions, a major environmental concern is the amount of waste produced in the form of torn down walls, plaster, flooring, etc. However, at GreenWerks we utilize the most efficient practices to eliminate such waste as we hope to salvage as much as possible for later use. We use a process of deconstruction that allows us to recycle on average 95% of the construction debris.
By utilitzing a variety of recycled and sustainable materials for framing, flooring, walls, and tiling, we work to use reclaimed materials from organizations like the ReUse Center and Salvage One. This focus on post-consumer and sustainable products allows our additions to have the least impact on the environment as possible. Once a space is framed we can then go in and secure all possible air leaks, insure maximum weatherization, and install the best and most efficient mechanical systems to make this new space is economical, healthy, efficient, and stylish. Being in a room made of all natural or recycled materials gives the space a character unlike any other room. The air is more pure and clean, free of toxins. The floors tell a story of their different pasts—maybe as parts of it were once a plastic bottle or a piece of sea glass. And the walls are made with drywall with recycled content and certified wood that has harmed no forest’s future. So go ahead, give us a call to experience our expertise of green materials, and feel the difference.
