Building Material to Use for Eco-Friendly Construciton or Rennovation

As the green movement sweeps the globe, many of us are thinking of how we can integrate eco-friendly elements into our homes. One of the best ways to lower your carbon footprint is use sustainable material when building your home or simply making renovations. First, familiarize yourself with some of the options available to you. Then you can speak to an architect and construction team about your vision for your green home. Or, if you're in the do-it-yourself frame of mind, see what your local home improvement store can supply you with.

  • Cork - Cork is considered a great alternative to many flooring material because it's harvested. Cork comes from the bark of a cork tree, which means it's sustainable and renewable. This material can be used to replace carpet or laminate floors, which require an exceptional amount of energy to manufacture.
  • Bamboo - Bamboo is another alternative that can be used for flooring or even textiles within the home. Bamboo has similar qualities to wood, but it grows rapidly and can therefore be more easily replaced and is abundant supply.
  • Marmoleum - Marmoleum is yet another alternative to many flooring materials. A combination of renewable products like linseed oil, cork dust and wood flour, it can be used not only for flooring, but for counter tops as well.
  • Pine - Of course, being eco-conscious doesn't mean you need to eliminate wood altogether. Pine is ideal when shopping for lumber, since it's quicker to grow back. Consider pine not only when you build your home, but when creating a fence, cabinets or panels within the home.
  • Insulation - Ensuring that your home is well insulated is a great way to not only reduce costs, but save energy. Insulation can be produced from recycled cotton or a combination of other recycled plastics.

    Companies that sell used building materials help construction companies and architects create new buildings, homes, and structures in a more sustainable way. When construction companies choose to use lumber, brick, carpet, and other items that have been pulled from older buildings that were torn down, they find a greener alternative to cutting down new trees for wood and cutting new stone for bricks. Many companies that sell used building materials are wholesalers that supply sustainable products to large construction and architecture companies. While there are some companies that supply homeowners with used moulds, doors, hardware, countertops, and lumber, this does not have as large of an effect on ecological change. Selling to large companies, however, allows them to reuse old materials in hundreds or even thousands of new buildings that are being built today. Most used materials wholesalers have a wide range of supplies that they can offer. They can provide the basic lumber, brick, and hardware needed for new homes. Many of them, however, also have sinks, tubs, toilets, and wood paneling. Anyone buying from these companies will want to make sure that the laminate, cabinets, carpet, tools, and plumbing hardware that they get are in good condition. Otherwise, customers will just have to replace them with new products in the near future. You can learn more about how green and sustainable the wholesalers in your area are by using the internet to find consumer reviews. These reviews will provide first-hand information about the fences, doors, bricks, and other used home building materials that others have bought from the suppliers.
