Green products increasingly becoming the norm

As the use of sustainable products slowly becomes the norm in high-end homes, more remodeling professionals are looking toward the mid-range market as the next demographic to target. As the interest in monitoring energy use rises, green technology and using recycled materials in the middle or upper-middle class could bring about a surge of new green remodeling jobs.
As a result, remodeling professionals are looking to entice this tax bracket to consider investing in green materials and design choices. Home improvement financing options offered by Home Loan Investment Bank could help a property owner implement the green changes he or she desires. Changes such as integrating energy-efficient appliances, creating universal work spaces and using recycled material finishes can advance the unique design aspects of a home.
According to Custom Home Magazine, sustainable specs are a growing trend and are fast becoming the status quo in the remodeling market. However, the level of green tools, processes and materials being used varies greatly depending on cost. Consult with a professional to determine what the best step is for a green remodel.
