Yes, that buzz-word “Green” is all around us today. Here at Eby Exteriors it is more than a catchy phrase. Green building has become a way of doing business for us. This isn’t some flashy piece of equipment, or bureaucratic oversight, but just simply a way of doing day to day operations. With just a little forethought and attention we can minimize our industry’s impact on the environment, and help homeowners do the same. Here is what green building means to Eby Exteriors and our customers:
When we remove old building products containing such materials as aluminum, vinyl, and copper, we recycle them! That is a simple, but effective way to lessen our industry’s impact on the environment. Not only is it environmentally smart, but it saves money too!
When we have a choice, we choose to purchase our building materials from environmentally conscious manufacturers. One prime example of this is the Certainteed roofing and siding products that we use. Their Energy Star certification means that you’ll spend less on home heating and cooling over your home’s lifetime.
Sometimes we stock more of an item than we can use. Instead of disposing of these items, or even recycling them, we donate any usable material we have to the Lancaster Habitat for Humanity. If that’s one less window in the landfill, it has made a difference.
We will help you, the homeowner, evaluate your home energy use, and offer solutions that both save money, and the world around us. Less fuel through the furnace is not only good for your wallet, but also your neighborhood.
