Emerald Contractors is one the only builders in the area to have earned a Certified Green Professional Designation (CGP) from the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB).

In order to achieve this certification, Emerald Contractors participated in rigorous training sessions covering topics such as how green homes provide buyers with lower energy costs and higher value as well as strategies for incorporating green-building principles into homes without increasing the cost of construction.  This intense level of training helps Emerald to consistently bring fresh ideas to clients who desire incorporating green techniques into their home remodeling.

As so many are becoming passionate about preserving the environment, Emerald Contractors is proud to specialize in green remodeling.  Green remodeling can make your home healthier, provide lower maintenance solutions & costs, reduce your energy consumption and incorporate the use of sustainable materials.

Think Green

We utilize environmentally friendly considerations in the following three ways:

  • Design considerations
  • Products & materials used
  • Construction methods

In home remodeling we also consider the following:

  • Home Energy Performance
  • Health Considerations
  • Environmental Concerns
  • Sustainability & Durability

Energy-efficient appliances, solar energy, reused building materials and chemical-free materials are a few of the options that Emerald Contractors now educate clients about.
