Seeing Green Part 1: Building a Better Home
Builders take pride in the homes they construct. After all, they wouldn’t stake their reputation on something subpar. Spotting and adjusting to changes and market trends before they manifest can increase a company’s success, while diminishing their risk in both the short- and long-term. But not all builders see this.
Different builders define “high performance” differently. However, changes throughout the residential construction market have begun to codify the understanding of what a better-built, high-performance home is. But the change hasn’t occurred as quickly as environmental and high-performance builders want. If forecasts and looming trends are any indication, the time for change is now.
