What is a CGP (Certified Green Professional)?
Green building is the use of quality building practices that promote
sustainability to make your home healthier and more efficient.
The CGP designation means our team has a solid background in green
building materials, methods, and tools to meet your needs. We understand
and are experienced in the principles of energy, water, and resource
efficiency, as well as indoor and environmental air quality. For
you this means that we incorporate green building principles into
our home remodels utilizing cost-effective and affordable options.
We also have completed the Healthy House Training for Building
Professionals sponsored by the American Lung Association.
