Are you familiar with “green” home builders? They are contractors who construct homes from sustainable or renewable products. These green home builders use durable materials in building all kinds of homes ranging from individual bungalows to expansive, real estate developments. Just like traditional builders, they handle diverse types of construction but build in a way that minimizes waste.


Green homes have gained recent popularity due to their energy efficiency, water efficiency and minimal impact on the environment. Apart from their environmental impact, green homes are known to boost the quality of living for the occupants. Moreover, a green home can enhance their overall well-being.


While searching for a suitable, green home builder, you must examine aspects of their past work like their building strategies, experience, quality of work and expertise. A green home builder must be actively involved in all phases of your home construction; they should be a part of the process from the time of design inception to the completion of the home.


Here are things to consider before employing the services of a green home builder:


License


Just like other businesses, it is essential for real estate builders to have a license that permits them to construct green homes. These licenses are issued by the state, federally, or via local city council. It is proof that a particular contractor has a permit to build a sustainable house. Therefore, you must ensure that a green home builder has a license before employing his/her services.


Experience/ Expertise


Experience is a quality that a green home builder must have. In addition to a license, builders may seek the designation "Certified Green Professional" (CGP), which is an industry determination requiring them to pass specific coursework to obtain and maintain. In addition to certification, to choose a reliable and experienced green home builder, you should endeavor to ask your prospective green home builders to show some similar projects that they have done in the past.


Green builders who believe in the quality of their work may refer you to their past customers. When meeting these customers, ask questions that will give you an idea of the builder’s level of expertise, and how living in a green home enhances their lives.


Knowledge is power, so don't be afraid to ask the tough and necessary questions to ensure you're getting the most value and efficiency for your money. To find a green home in your area, seek the advice of your real estate professional today.

Are you looking for some new and unique flooring options for your home? Check out this list of artistic, eye-catching and unique flooring options from around the globe.

Roman Tile Floor

The most luxurious homes during the Golden Age of Rome boasted floors that were a fantastic work of art. Tiny colored tiles were created with meticulous care to make beautiful mosaics. Animal motifs were common, but so were geometric patterns. Some Romans also enjoyed heated floors. In this present day, you can have a mosaic floor just as the Romans, and have it heated for some extra cash, too.

Bamboo Cane Floor

Over the years, bamboo has become popular as an eco-friendly choice to hardwood. Bamboo has the same shiny, grainy and smooth appearance of a typical wooden floor and the same durability, too. However, bamboo grows faster than regular trees, which makes it a renewable source. Bamboo is easy to clean and can last for many years.

Log End Floor

Log end floor is a different twist on the standard hardwood floor. With an amazingly rustic yet sophisticated appearance, the log-end floor is made of well-crafted log pieces to bring the feeling of a traditional log cabin and a splash of high-class.A log-end floor has a very flexible design and is superbly comfortable to walk on.

Rubber Floor

If you want to think out of the ordinary in regard to floors for your kitchen, a rubber floor is a beautiful, unique flooring choice. Typically, used in playroom and gyms, rubber is springy underfoot and soft, so it is excellent for standing for an extended period, such as when cooking or washing the dishes. A rubber floor is durable and requires low maintenance. It will provide a fresh and unique look for homeowners who want something different.

Penny Floor

A fresh and exciting trend is known as a penny floor aka copper floor. Penny floor is just as the name implies: a layer of pennies makes up this unique floor, held firmly into place with a sealant. Even though it takes a considerable amount of time to lay down all the pennies, it is surprisingly affordable. If you want stylish flooring for your home without spending too much, the penny floor is a great choice.

When renovating your home, you should consider choosing a unique flooring option as it can boost the value and appeal of your home. Not sure what to pick? Ask your real estate agent what flooring types are the best return on investment in your market.
