When building a home you have several options. Getting the right kind of flooring and type of windows is good for the planet as well as the wallet. Bamboo flooring looks just like hardwood, except the tree itself is able to regenerate much quicker. Hardwood trees takes a long time to grow back after being cut down. Bamboo flooring should last you a lifetime. Cork is another flooring option. Some say it’s softer and easier on your feet. Windows are another way to go green. E windows are the most efficient. Proper insulation is another key to going green in the home.
