Green Home Renovations   Facts, Figures, and the Future

Individuals want to do their part to help the environment. Research shows sustainable solutions begin  at home.

More than 93% of homeowners see the benefits of undertaking renovations that have positive impacts on the environment.

46% of U.S. homeowners said helping the environment is one of the key motivations driving their home improvement projects.

While it may seem counterintuitive, one proven way to make a home more sustainable is by building and furnishing it with materials made of wood.

“The longer a wood product lasts, the more effective it is at keeping carbon out of the atmosphere and helping to slow climate change,”

Another advantage to wood is that the processes to manufacture it emit less carbon than those used for non-wood building materials.

Whether you are making major changes or simple updates, eco-friendly choices should remain in critical focus.
