Going green is not only the right thing to do, it saves homeowners money by reducing their energy costs. We are a local Green Remodeling Contractor in Minnesota and we focus on the home as a whole system. We will verify ventilation and insulation before replacing a roof or residing. We will make recommendations if we see large energy loss by referring an insulator or having a home energy audit completed.
Quarve Contracting, Inc. has completed two MNGreenStar remodeling projects in the metro. One a Bronze Remodel in Roseville and a Gold Remodel in St. Louis Park. With the help of the homeowners, both have seen a substantial reduction in energy costs, better indoor air quality and durable exteriors that will last a life-time.

ENERGY STAR is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy helping us all save money and protect the environment through energy efficient products and practices. Results are already adding up. Americans, with the help of ENERGY STAR, saved enough energy in 2007 alone to avoid greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those from 27 million cars — all while saving $16 billion on their utility bills.
Energy efficient choices can save families about a third on their energy bill with similar savings of greenhouse gas emissions, without sacrificing features, style or comfort. ENERGY STAR helps you make the energy efficient choice.
