We are a CERTIFIED Green Builder.
In order to help homeowners and builders, there is a statewide program available locally which will assure your new home meets national green building standards. Therefore, a home certified through Green Built™ Michigan follows the national Model Green Home Building Guidelines. Seeing the Green Built™ logo on a home means it has met or exceeded a tough, national standard for quality.
By building a Green Built™ home, not only do you save money, breathe cleaner air, live in a more durable structure. More importantly, you also can sleep better at night knowing you did your part to keep our environment clean.
Benefits of Green Built
Given current energy bills, you don’t want your dollars floating out the window or through a leaking duct. For that reason, the most critical principle is energy efficiency. All Green Built™ Certified Homes must meet the strict requirements of the EPA ENERGY STAR® Home Program. This includes a complete energy analysis of the home design combined with independent testing of the final product including air and duct leakage tests, as well as thermal image testing. Assuredly, it is a very thorough audit process that will ensure that the energy usage of your new home will be far less than the average home, in most cases, 30% to 50% better.
