Crafting Modern Cities: The Advantages of Hiring a Green Builder

September 28, 2016

The idea of “going green” first came onto the tip of people’s tongues around 15 years ago. It was a modern and ethical response for those who wished to minimize the strain their activity puts on the earth. With some areas showing 40% of landfill volume made up from construction debris, no wonder people began to turn to green builders to reduce their environmental impact. Hiring a green builder isn’t just advantageous to Mother Earth, there are huge positives for the homeowner too. In today’s real estate market, green homes have a higher resale value in comparison to their more traditional brothers, whilst high Energy Star ratings mean lower operational costs. At Estes Builders, a commitment to the environment has been part of our company DNA since we starting building more than 25 years ago.  We have been recognized as one of the most ethical, mindful, and skilled environmentally-friendly builders in the United States. We are an industry leader in green building, with over 130 positive testimonials from clients who have benefited from the mindful design, planning, and construction of their energy efficient homes. How does a green builder create an energy-efficient home? Constructing with the right materials is a major step. Estes Builders source materials locally, which reduces the overall carbon footprint of the project. Using only the best construction elements, homes are built with an eye on energy and water efficiency. Using the right materials also reduces the need for repairs, giving your home long-term durability. Green building is not just about creating an energy efficient home constructed with high-quality materials, it is a philosophy which begins before the foundation is poured.
