3 Exterior Remodel Choices for a Green Lifestyle

When it comes to making choices that help lead to a green lifestyle, Budget Exteriors is here to help Minnesota homeowners achieve their eco-friendly goals.

Going green doesn’t necessarily mean going plastic-free or eating a certain diet. Environmentally-conscious choices can extend to larger, long-term decisions, such as exterior remodeling projects.

Whether you’re looking to update your windows, doors, gutters, siding, or roof, Budget Exteriors has a green solution in mind.

Save Money & Energy with a Green Window System

Windows and doors can be big investments in any exterior remodel project for Minnesota homeowners. Starting with window frames, you’ll want a low transfer material like composite, vinyl, or wood—something resistant to water and structural damage caused by freezing and thawing. Fiberglass frames also work well as they’re lower maintenance, but they are less cost-effective. Avoid materials like aluminum that easily conduct heat because these will be less energy efficient.

Double pane windows are preferable as they have an air gap that ensures hot air doesn’t escape and deters fog or frost issues. Lastly, coating your windows with a low e glaze will help bring together your eco-friendly window system. Not only are these choices better for the environment, but they’ll also go a long way in saving money on your heating and energy bills.

Eco-Friendly Roofing Materials

Believe it or not, but your roofing choice can have a huge impact on the environment (and your monthly bills!). Like most aspects of any green lifestyle, it’s good to keep in mind that the money saved on electric and heating bills far outweigh the upfront cost of installing an eco-friendly roof.

You’ll want materials that help reduce the amount of energy a home needs to use, such as:

●        Rubber

●        Shingles that use recycled materials

●        Clay tiles

●        Asphalt

●        Metal

Siding that Contributes to Your Green Lifestyle

A few aspects to consider when choosing an eco-friendly siding include:

●        Longevity

●        Whether or not it is recyclable or biodegradable

●        Long-term maintenance

Luckily for you, Budget Exteriors offers exemplary vinyl siding services that have great long-term benefits.

Vinyl siding can last anywhere from 20 to 40 years, is made to be recyclable, and doesn’t require much regarding maintenance or upkeep. Plus, it’s durable and will give your home a visually-pleasing aesthetic.
