Renaissance Custom Builders is dedicated to building homes with a sustainable design. It is important to fulfill the needs of current generations, without diminishing the needs of future ones. Building with an ecological footprint will ultimately result in economic efficiency and social well-being.

Energy efficient building practices and environmentally friendly building options continue to become more popular and more affordable. Renaissance Custom Builders is committed to continuing to educate our clients on the most current green building practices and products.

Building green with sustainability and energy conservation is consistent with our goal of building the highest quality home possible for you and your family. Renaissance Custom Builders incorporates green building materials and green construction technologies to provide a comfortable and energy efficient home.

Good energy design and high efficiency products work together to make a green home which is more comfortable for you and better for the environment. Some of these building features include:
• Low E and Insulated Windows
• Energy Efficient House Wraps
• Radiant Heating

Energy bills can be reduced through the use of green building materials and appliances that are energy efficient such as:
• Solar Water Heaters
• Radiant Heat Systems
• Energy Star Appliances
• Energy-Efficient Lighting
• Photovoltaic and Solar-Thermal Panels

Indoor air quality affects how you feel everyday and can be improved by many of the items used in the construction of your green home. Indoor air pollution can be reduced through the use of:
• Low-VOC Paints and Finishes
• Formaldehyde-free Insulation
• Recycled or Natural Fiber Carpets
• Alternative Wood Choices for Flooring, Cabinets and Millwork
• Electrostatic Air Cleaners

High efficiency appliances save energy and conserve our natural resources. Many green building materials can be made with high-recycled or low-impact content including:
• Recycled glass and ceramic tiles
• Fly ash concrete mixtures used in constructing footings, foundations, and slabs
• Engineered wood products
• Fiber-cement siding
• Use of Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified lumber and wood products

LEED Certification
In 2007, The US Green Building Council added to their certifications by implementing their Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification program for Residential Buildings. This is a comprehensive and stringent certification. Renaissance Custom Builders designs and builds our custom homes using strategies aimed at improving performance across all the metrics that matter most: energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts.

We make it easy for you to go "green"
