A Florida Coastal Builders
home is naturally Green due to the way our homes are constructed. Our controlled building environment allows us to store materials inside out of the weather, reducing moisture content in the lumber and other susceptible building materials we use. Our construction methods also produce less waste, reduces labor cost, and conserves energy. We recycle products to prevent the waste of potentially useful materials, which reduces the consumption of fresh raw materials, and reduces Energy consumed in conventional waste disposal. This all adds to the lowering of Greenhouse gases.
The United States Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) ENERGY STAR
programs and products help preserve the environment. They also save consumers money by using less energy through advanced design and construction. FCB
is able to build to Energy Star Standards. Florida Coastal Builders is dedicated to building energy efficient modular homes in Florida that consume significantly less energy and help to preserve the environment. There are many benefits for homeowners who want to go green in their new home or remodeling project. Improved health, durability and efficiency of the home, as well as reduced heating, cooling and utility costs are all results of our FCB
designs. More benefits include qualifying for green building rebates and mortgages, and an increased home value through green certification that stays with the home. Our standard homes, even without opting for a green certification, are built at much higher levels of energy efficiency than traditional homes. They are sealed tighter with superior and higher levels of quality insulation. The tighter construction also prevents outside allergens, pollen and mold from entering your home.
