Why Weston Dean—A Look Into Our Green Building Practices

September 26, 2022

Throughout our work at Weston Dean Custom Homes, we’ve always made it our priority to improve our practices throughout the green building landscape. While the homes we build for our homeowners are completely customized to fit their wants and needs, they are all centered around energy efficiency—so read on to see all of the ways building green will benefit you and your community when you choose to work with our team at Weston Dean Custom Homes.  

Financial savings

When our team begins every custom home build, each practice we put into place and every product we choose to use stems from our overall green building promise to ensure that your home is highly energy efficient through proper insulation, air sealing and more. When you focus on using well-insulated windows and energy efficient appliances throughout the entire home—the monthly savings you see on your electricity bills could reach up to 65 percent. The overall design of the home can also play a huge role in keeping the home energy efficient and increasing your overall savings while ensuring that your home is kept comfortable—for example, the position of your home can help take advantage of the sun’s energy throughout the day to provide free natural heat in the cooler months, essentially saving you even more on energy bills.

Healthier living

The safety and comfort of our homeowners and their loved ones is always a top priority our team at Weston Dean Custom Homes has when we build each of our homes, and by using green building practices throughout every phase of construction—we are easily able to ensure this. There are times when certain chemicals could possibly be emitted from certain building materials that could potentially be harmful to your health if they are not properly addressed. When we say that we emphasize building green throughout our construction process—we are using products and materials within each of our homes that significantly reduce or completely eliminate these sources of indoor pollution. The products we love to use, such as low-VOC paint, solvent-free adhesives and water-based wood finishes, are incredible for keeping your family safe while also performing better over the years than some other more traditional products. 

Low maintenance

Green building products offer a higher level of durability than many other building materials—and oftentimes, they end up exceeding the building code requirements that are on construction standards. When you use material made from recycled plastic and wood fibers for your deck, when you have durable tile or linoleum for your flooring, when you use fiber-cement siding and when you use resilient roofing materials that can last up to 50 years—you’ll be saving money reducing many maintenance needs and replacement costs. 

Environmental benefits

At its core, however, the environmental benefits of building green is the most important reason as to why we do the work that we do. When our team uses green building materials throughout our builds, we are able to help preserve our natural resources—positively impacting the communities we build in you
