Flooring for your Home Remodel!
It feels like we wait all year long for spring and before you know it, it’s summer! Hopefully your spring cleaning is far behind you. After de-winterizing your home, you suddenly discover a list of improvements you want to make to your home. Lucky for you, May is National Home Remodeling month and in honor of that we want to give you a few pointers to help you finish that “honey-do” list.
Remodeling your home can have many benefits. Besides improving your overall quality of life, remodeling can increase the value of your home and reduce maintenance and utility costs. You may be thinking about adding a new room or simply sprucing up an existing room. Regardless of the size, undergoing any kind of home improvement project can be stressful. It is important to consider all of your options and consult with professionals before tackling any task.
Many people are starting to embark on projects to make their home more eco-friendly. Choosing “green” projects can help reduce your carbon “footrprint”, or impact on the Earth. When deciding on new “green” features for your home, it is important to choose products or projects that will:
- Save Water
- Increase energy efficiency
- Reduce CO2 emissions
Many people are also “going green” when it comes to purchasing flooring. First and foremost, you should always choose a floor covering that fits your needs and your budget. After you’ve decided on your perfect flooring, there are a few simple steps you can take to remain eco-friendly:
- Buy locally! This reduces the amount of emissions from shipping and delivery vehicles.
- Choose flooring with minimal VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) emissions which can contribute to long-term health risks.
- Choose flooring that takes little energy to produce or manufacture and is made from renewable resources.
