Green Initiatives


Our Green Initiatives

Green homes have less negative impact on the environment by saving energy and reducing waste, particularly during construction, but Clay Ingels supports the green building trend for reasons that go far beyond saving the environment. Green homes translate into utility savings, improved indoor air quality and less overall maintenance.

More and more homeowners are leaning toward the very real benefits of living in a green home. That’s why green homes are expected to make up 10% of new home construction by 2010. Are you going green?

Some people think that building a brick home will cause them to go beyond their budget. Fact is, a brick home usually costs only 3-5% more to build than a vinyl siding home, but over the long term, it actually saves money in maintenance.
