Sustainable Materials

Using sustainable materials for your remodel or new construction is a great way to achieve many goals all at once.  There is a wide range of materials that will look good, conserve energy, be healthier, require less maintenance and save you money. Included in this category are recycled and salvaged materials, natural and renewable materials as well as materials that are locally available.

The City of Seattle Green Home Remodel Guide series is an excellent resource for additional information:  www.seattle.gov/dpd/GreenBuilding/SingleFamilyResidential/Resources/RemodelingGuides/default.asp
