Green / Sustainable Homes
Kingbridge Homes is a leading home builder in the St. Louis metro area, specializing in custom homes that not only meet your family’s needs, but that also utilize innovative green technologies and sustainable construction practices. While there are certainly positive environmental impacts associated with building eco-friendly homes, we also think there are tremendous benefits for the homeowner, including reduced energy costs to improved indoor air quality.
Depending on a client’s specific level of commitment to building a green home, the team at Kingbridge Homes can work with you to include a range of sustainable elements at all phases of the homebuilding process, including:
- Green design – taking time to consider home orientation as well as window and overhang placement can make a significant impact on the energy efficiency of your home.
- Appliance selection – this is the simplest and most cost effective way to make a home more sustainable. Energy star rated appliances are standard for every home we build and are sure to minimize your gas and/or electric bills.
- Construction material choice – everything from insulation and energy efficient windows to recycled composite flooring and natural stone tiles can minimize the environmental impact and make for a more eco-friendly house. Additionally, non-toxic materials such as low VOC paints, improve indoor air quality.
Building a “green” house does require some upfront investment, however, when properly implemented, these elements can result in significant energy savings in the long term, while also reducing your home’s environmental impact. And while we understand that sustainability isn’t everyone’s top priority when building a custom home, if it’s something that is especially important to you, you can count on Kingbridge Homes to deliver an unparalleled eco-friendly home that exceeds expectations. We even have experience building homes that meet or exceeded all Silver Level standards of NAHB Green Home Guidelines, as certified by Laclede Gas Company.
At Kingbridge Homes our ultimate goal is making your dreams a reality. Call us today to learn more about how we can help you create a home that not only includes green technologies, but also saves you some green along the way.
