Homebuilding Goes Green

Posted on Updated on

According to a recent article published by the Sun-Sentinel, homebuilders and buyers are expected to go green during the next five years.

Environmentally friendly homes represented 17 percent of the residential construction market in 2011 and are due to increase five-fold by 2016, according to a study released last week by McGraw-Hill Construction during the International Builders’ Show in Orlando.

Green home remodeling is projected to jump by 150 percent by 2016.

The homes increase energy savings and are seen as higher quality, according to the study. Costs of building a green home also are down.
