Have you ever heard of a “sustainable home”? It is a type of home that uses nature as a role model, making effective use of available resources and energy. It helps decrease waste and pollution, as you minimize the use of materials or products that are deemed harmful to the environment.
 
A sustainable house is light, warm, and a healthy place to live and grow. If you want to have a sustainable home but don’t know where to start, we at Tittle Brothers Construction can help you achieve your goals. You can start with your Ann Arbor roofing, siding, or windows.
 
When you’re choosing materials for your home, invest in high-quality and environment-friendly products. Here are some tips you may follow:
 

  • Choose products that offer greater insulation and energy efficiency. If you want a sustainable home, then energy efficiency is an important feature you should look into. When choosing roof replacements, pick one with good insulation properties, such as GAF Timberline Cool Series. This will greatly help in making the best use of available energy in your home. During winter, energy-efficient roofs can help maintain warmer temperatures inside your home. During summer, it prevents solar heat from accumulating in your home.
  • Choose durable products. By choosing durable and long-lasting products, you won’t need repair or replacements every so often. This means reduction in waste materials and maintenance costs. James Hardie HardieZone™ System, for instance, provide superior strength, beauty, and durability. It features unique performance properties that suit our climate here in Michigan.
  • Choose low-maintenance products. Low-maintenance replacement windows from top brands, such as Renewal by Andersen®, Simonton Windows, Polaris, Windows, and Pella Windows, don’t require painting or scraping to maintain its appeal. Since they need less upkeep, you can forget about buying and using cleaning agents, paints, and staining products that are potentially harmful to the environment.

 
There are plenty of other sustainable practices for your home. It won’t hurt to start with something smart and attainable.
