Weston Dean is proud of its commitment to green building
in each of the custom homes they build in the San Antonio area. When new homebuyers start looking at custom home designs, they've usually decided on custom homebuilding due to the flexibility of floor plans as well as attracted to the idea of having everything wholly reflect their values and life priorities in their new home. A green home not only is a commitment to being environmentally conscious and friendly in your daily life, but it also shows forethought into you and your family's well-being. Green built homes are economically advantageous (by cutting energy costs and using energy more efficiently overall) as well as offers a substantially healthier way of life day to day. How is all this possible? Just read on; we'll tell you!
Healthy Living For You and Yours
Throughout many new home construction projects, you'll discover that much of the building materials are imbued with chemicals, some of which are toxic, others just not nearly as beneficial to your health. Paint, cabinets, and other parts of your brand new home may be home to surfaces containing formaldehyde. This is not uncommon; many of these products naturally are introduced to adhesives or other chemical bonds with this. While clearly unpleasant, the lasting effects are dire. Formaldehyde releases a gas that can be present for years, affecting your daily life in many negative ways such as headaches and contributing to fatigue. Weston Dean specifically uses alternative building materials without the present of this and other such carcinogens.
Additionally, a custom home by Weston Dean means that particular attention is paid to the ventilation throughout your home, increasing and maintaining a high quality of air to breathe and reduce the likelihood and development of mold, allergens and other unwanted air-bound particles. Green building lets you live as you ordinarily would, doing all the hard work for you and your family.
Lower Home Maintenance
When you add these higher quality construction materials with our custom building practices, you reap the benefits of careful craftsmanship that not only last years (and thereby reducing the costs for replacements over time), but creating full self-regulating systems set at your optimum level. Our products last longer at little maintenance to you. Even better, our building expectations far exceed the minimum standards.
Save Money While "Saving the Environment"
When you have appliances, insulation, windows, and other household necessities working more efficiently while pulling less energy to do their jobs, you save money month to month in bills and other areas of home maintenance. Our building techniques take advantage of natural resources (such as natural heat from the sun) as well as creatively utilizing the energy needed in general. This easily amounts into thousands of dollars saved each year - who wouldn't make that change?
