Questions to Ask Your Contractor When Building an Eco-Friendly Home

If you're having your home built by a construction firm that specializes in eco-friendly materials, it's a good idea to understand what will be going into your home. Not only should you ensure you understand the functionality of the materials, but you can verify that all measures are being taken to use sustainable material. Here are some questions to keep in mind.

  • Are you buying from wholesale supply?
    Not only will buying wholesale reduce your costs, but it will also reduce your carbon footprint. Buying wholesale cuts out the middle man, which eliminates a step for distribution and transportation. This indirectly reduces energy usage.

  • Which type of lumber will be used?
    A green home doesn't need to be devoid of wood. However, choosing pine over other varieties means you're selecting a more sustainable product. You might also consider how brick can be integrated to cut down on your reliance upon lumber.

  • What can we do to conserve water?
    When you build a green home, it's not just about the material being used. It's also about the appliances and fixtures purchased. For instance, in the bathroom, consider water-reducing options for your sink and toilet.

  • How can we reduce energy costs?
    If solar energy is beyond your budget as you build your home, you can look into recycled forms of insulation. This benefits you doubly as you are using recycled material and reducing energy costs.

  • What options are available for flooring?
    While carpet and laminate flooring is in unlimited supply, it does require extensive energy to produce and distribute. Ask about using material like cork, bamboo, or marmoleum instead.

    Wholesale and retail companies that sell used building materials need several different types of employees and managers to supply sustainable products. The lumber, bricks, carpet, plumbing hardware, and other products are sold to construction companies that want to maintain a green reputation for reusing materials from older buildings.

    Some of the most important employees working for these companies spend their time locating used building materials that they can sell to home construction companies and architects. These employees need to understand how to determine the value of everything from wood paneling to sinks. This requires a lot of training and hands-on experience. After years on the job, though, they can determine whether carpet, toilets, wood fences, laminates, or doors are reusable. Unfortunately, some materials are in poor condition, so they are sent to a landfill.

    Used building material companies also need sales employees who can teach construction companies and architects about the importance of using sustainable methods. These salespeople often act as educators, who convince companies to choose green construction plans by showing them the benefits of using green methods. Of course, they then supply the moulds, sinks, carpets, bricks, and wood needed to complete the sustainable building project.

    While it is very important for companies to employ workers who can locate reusable products and sell them to others, they also need managers who can make decisions about how much to charge for the products. Many find that this is tricky because they need to make money from the exchange that will pay for their intensive eco-friendly efforts, but they also need to make a profit. This means determining the perfect price that home construction companies will pay for used countertops, tubs, tools, and cabinets.
