10 Things to Look for in a Green Contractor


No Greenwashing

One of the keys to having a green building built is to make sure that you know what goes into a sustainable and environmentally friendly structure. Knowing what low-VOC paints are, or the difference between non-ozone depleting insulation and passive solar design, will help tremendously when looking for a contractor. Doing your homework on the ins and outs of green construction will ensure that your contractor is telling you the truth, and that he's up-to-date on the technology involved in a green building.
