Green Building

Whether it’s a new house or a remodel, we know it’s not just about getting the results you want. It’s also important to be environmentally conscious during the process, and find ways to make your project more eco-friendly. When the final result is everything you want it to be, and the process has been friendly to the planet, you have all the more reason to feel good about the work that’s been done.

Here at Baine, we bring an environmentally minded approach to every job we do, from a small bathroom remodel to a complete addition or new construction. Being responsible is important to us, and we take a number of measures to make our remodeling process as eco-friendly as possible.

Salvaging materials

Being an environmentally friendly builder and remodeler doesn’t necessarily mean there’s a lot of fancy technology involved. Sometimes it’s the simple things that make the biggest difference. Things like millwork, doors, and other building materials are often recyclable — we do this whenever possible. Whenever materials can be recycle or reused, we make an effort to put them to work. Our experienced team will make sure your job site creates as little waste as possible.

Quality insulation and building

People don’t always realize it, but one of the most environmentally friendly things a contractor can do is deliver impeccable results. This is especially true with new home constructions, or additions to existing homes. By using high quality insulations and building skills that reach the highest professionals standards, we make homes that need less energy for heating and cooling. Shoddy contractors can cost the earth by making your home use more energy — which costs you every month as well.

Waste removal and debris sorting

It’s inevitable that some waste will be generated with every remodeling or building project — but how does your contractor deal with that waste? Is it all put together and taken indiscriminately to the landfill? Or is it carefully sorted and removed, so that recycling is maximizing and waste is minimized? Maintaining an environmental mindset is of the most important things we’ve learned in our 30+ years experience in the home remodeling and building industry.

Hearing your concerns

We understand that some clients are more specific about environmental concerns, and we’re happy to tailor our approach, however possible, to meet individual needs. It’s important for each client not only to feel great about the results we deliver, but also about the entire process. Knowing that your renovation or building project was undertaken in a responsible manner makes it all that much more enjoyable in the long term. If you have specific questions or concerns about the environmental standards of our work, or about the specific project you’re thinking about, let our team answer your questions and form a strategy that satisfies your concerns.

Green practices

Environmentally friendly remodeling and building is not something that happens suddenly overnight. The best strategies are built up over time as contractors learn how to be more efficient, and deliver better long-term results. Protecting the environment is an important part of our company philosophy, and we’re constantly striving to do better. Call us today to discuss your project, and ways to make it easier on the planet.
