If you’re building a home or an addition to your existing home, be sure to choose eco-friendly construction materials.
There are really two ways to be eco-friendly in your home building materials. The first is to choose materials that minimize environmental impact.
Using recycled materials, for example, always causes less environmental impact than using new materials. If you use a wood construction with new timber, you are essentially putting in an order for trees to be cut down. The harvesting will use energy and remove green trees from the environment. If you use salvaged or reclaimed wood, the construction uses already-cut trees, yielding much less environmental impact.
