Going Green? Lots of Options Are Available

Posted by at 7:32 PM

If you're like many people, you're concerned about the impact your lifestyle and your home has on the environment.  And with the rising costs of just about everything, you're probably also concerned about reducing those heating and cooling bills.  The good news is that there are many building products manufactured from sustainable resources, and there are also a variety of products to help conserve energy.  As  one of the St. Paul/Minneapolis area's leading exterior home remodeling contractors, Quarve Contracting specializes in green remodeling.  We're concerned about the environment, and we're also very concerned about what is important to our customers.  That's why in addition to roof installation and repair, we offer a number of other exterior home remodeling services that can help you reduce your energy use and improve the "greenness" of your property.  We install such diverse products as natural cedar siding, roofing materials produced using renewable resources including steel and asphalt, as well as a number of Energy-Star rated products.  In addition to being environmentally friendly, remember that installing Energy-Star certified materials can quality you for both state and federal tax credits.  Completing a home energy audit can help you determine where your home is losing heat (and air conditioning in the summer) via heat transfer.  We can identify those problem areas and then help you choose the appropriate products such as well-insulated and properly installed siding, roofing, and replacement windows.  Cutting down on your energy use by reducing heating and cooling consumption makes sense both economically and environmentally.  If improving the environmentally-friendly state of your home as well as reducing your energy expenditures appeals to you, call the full-service home remodeling experts at Quarve Contracting today.  Consultations are always free.  Also, if you're heading out to the Minnesota State Fair this  year (August 25-September 5), visit us at the Eco Experience exhibit.
