Why Go Green?

The simple answer is to help the environment and to save money.

Building with green methods means you will keep more money in your pocket in the long run. Along with money, sustainability is a huge advantage of green building. Imagine having a home that takes little or no money to operate-having smaller heating and cooling bills.

During the construction of your new building there is less waste with the use of SIP’s because the panels come pre-constructed for easy assembly. This reduces the construction time for less potential interference from the weather and other job site variables. In addition the construction method for SIP’s eliminates the need to replace warped or faulty studs, again cutting down on waste, time and effort.

Once constructed the SIP’s building will use 50-70% less energy than a conventional building. For every pound of energy used to produce the SIP’s panels and the ICF’s, there is a lifetime saving in energy of 150 pounds. A “1 to 150” positive ratio.

SIP’s buildings are sturdier, and built to last longer than a conventional approach, meaning less replacement cost, and less of a drain on the environment.

In addition, a better-constructed and more energy efficient building significantly increases the overall resale value. (One recent study showed that for every dollar saved on energy costs, there is a twenty dollar in increased resale value.)

Why go green? Why go any way else?
