Homes that are ‘green’ are homes that have better indoor air quality than comparable homes. For you, as well as your family and visitors, this means that you are going to breath better. For asthma sufferers, it is a dream come true.

This is not always easy to do with other types of remodeling projects.

The world is ours to live, but it is imperative that we also take care of the world, the land, the earth -everything that we’ve been given.
