Green building is essential to the health of the environment. It involves designing and constructing ‘green’ structures that are safe for the environment. Green buildings are made from reused, recycled, or renewable resources that do not emit gases or any other emissions. These buildings also feature adjacent landscaping that does not rely heavily on water or any non-reusable resources. Products such as solar panels also typically complement green buildings.
Benefits of Green Building
All aspects of construction, from site preparation to project completion to demolition, may feature green building. Here at Curtis Lumber & Plywood, our green building products do not substitute for quality or durability. Below are the primary benefits of green building:
Green building is very safe for the environment as it does not contribute to waste. The products used in green building do not deteriorate over time or emit debris. Likewise, the chemicals used during product treatment, should the product require treatment, are environmentally friendly. Green building are free of any air or water pollution both indoors and outdoors, so you can rest easy knowing your home is not contributing to any pollution or harming the environment otherwise.
Using only products and resources that are renewable, green buildings are extremely energy efficient. When the life of a green building product nears its end, it can easily be reused or recycled. Most buildings that are made out of green products include solar panels and natural gas to power a fraction, or in some cases the entirety, of a home.
