What is the Right Shade of Green?
There is a lot of information out there today on “green” practices and products. Overwhelming and confusing, some of the claims are legitimate, while others are frivolous seeking to capitalize on consumer’s fears and concerns while not truly providing the promised result.
We have spent numerous years studying the various eco-friendly products and practices, focusing on three common sense questions:
- Does a product or method enhance the health and safety of our customer and their family?
- Does it reduce maintenance costs and time now and in the future?
- How are we impacting the environment in the short-term and in the long-term?
- Does it provide a return on investment of seven years or less?
A home built in 2015 saves almost 80 percent more in energy costs than homes built 10-plus years ago. The materials also have a longer lifespan, reaching 20 to 50 years in some cases, saving on maintenance costs. To save you money, green practices and products can be seen throughout the entire Regency Design Process.
