The Leading New York General Contractor Goes Green

February 19, 2008 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Leading New York Contractor, My Home, announces their interest to promote green building design options for New York City home renovations, remodeling and construction projects.

MyHome believe that if you are embarking on a home renovation, remodeling or construction project in New York it is a good idea to be thinking about including energy efficient design options that are readily available through sensible and innovative green building practices. Not only will energy efficient options reduce your overall ongoing financial costs, it will positively contribute to the impact on the environment.

There is a lot being said in the media right now about the importance of maintaining a healthy environment and the message is now starting to be heard that the responsibility does not only lie with large companies. Environmentally sustainable practices are the responsibility of everyone and must start in our own backyards to dramatically feel the impact of positive change for the environment. Whether the changes are as small as beginning a recycling routine, or maybe changing your light globes to minimize energy consumption or larger changes such as optimizing the internal efficiency of your home through structural changes these decisions will ultimately have a positive impact on the environment.

It is possible to dramatically increase the efficiency of energy, water and materials in your home through better planning of siting, design, construction, operation, maintenance and removal strategies. These minor changes to your project will have a lasting and beneficial result not only for the environment but also for your family and their health and wellbeing.

MyHome will be providing regular green building advice according to each section of the house and focusing individually on projects such as site work and landscaping, decking, roofing, windows, doors, flooring, electrical, plumbing, painting, lighting. Along with materials, MyHome will guide you through the variety of green choices you will need to make regarding appliances, furniture, furnishings, fittings and accessories.

MyHome believe strongly that the inclusion of environmentally friendly options at any stage of your project is easy and can be optimized through the utilization of your contractors and design specialists and also by thoroughly understanding the options available to you.
