Some of our ‘green’ building practices include the following:
The addition of solar system to your home will be so beneficial to you and to the environment. A solar system works by harnessing the power from the sun to provide your home with electricity. So, not only are you reducing your impact on the environment and reducing your energy consumption; but you will also be reducing your utility bills as well. It really is a win win for all!
Our team of solar installers will assess the needs of your building and the needs of you and your family members to ensure you have the right type and size of solar system to efficiently run your household. Don’t think about the added costs of installing such a system because you really be in front in years to come. You will make all of your money back while helping out the environment and the strain on our resources.
What is radiant flooring? Well it is a hydronic heating system that runs on a boiler that heats up hot water that is then pumped through plastic piping. This plastic piping is installed on your concrete slab. The pipes carry the heated water that is then conducted through to the surface of your flooring. The end product is heated flooring via heated water. You can have radiant flooring in one room or the whole house!

There are so many different types of insulation on the market today that it can get quite confusing when trying to choose the best for your particular needs.
