All about Our Green Building
As best practices evolved over the last two decades, our commitment to building long-lasting, sustainable structures has led us to use eco-friendly materials and practices.
With our reputation as one of the top green-building experts, coupled with extensive experience in constructing according to green-construction standards, we can make an integral addition to your project. GuyCo is as committed as ever to making a positive impact on our environment.
Studies show that retrofitting existing homes with energy-efficient features is four-to-eight times more effective than incremental improvements to newly constructed homes. We are pleased to be able to draw on our experience and expertise to help educate homeowners and industry professionals on the benefits of green building and remodeling. Here’s what we do:
Home Energy Audit
Should I insulate, air seal, or change my windows?
What should I improve first?
Will my house be healthy after improvements?
A well-trained professional home energy auditor can assist you in determining how to improve the efficiency of your home. An auditor can also advise you on the most effective improvements while ensuring the safety of your home and family after running a few tests and taking careful measurements. At GuyCo, we believe a proper energy audit is an important step when planning any project.
