Rogers & Marney, Inc. will go the extra mile to assure that your house is as green as you wish. Going green doesn’t have to mean weird toilets, inconvenient designs and out of sight building costs.
There are many common sense simple steps that can be taken to assure a green home.
For example, we encourage your home to be beneficially sited for passive heating and maximum day-lighting. We suggest your designer create an integrated design. We encourage your landscape plan to employ native species, saving on irrigation. Your engineer may consider the installation of rain gardens and dry wells, rain barrels and roof gutters that manage storm water run-off. Efficient ventilation is key to an economical home, so we insist on that. The structural envelope should maximize air barriers, implement appropriate insulation, and employ efficient framing and walls.
Once your home is designed, we will specify that site debris and waste will be minimized. We make every effort to recycle items being replaced during remodeling.
All these simple steps will help you achieve an acceptable level of “green” and long term savings in your home.
Rogers & Marney, Inc, continually educates its staff on newest products, design elements and construction techniques so we remain on the cutting edge of trends in the home building industry.
