Certified Green.

If we do not measure what we do, how are we ever to improve? For this reason, we have adopted leading industry standards as the yardsticks for assessing our accomplishments with The Green Makeover Home.


 

The Green Home Builders of the Triangle, a council formed out of the Home Builders Associations of Durham, Orange, Chatham, and Wake counties, certifies homes using the NAHB Green Building Guidelines.  This voluntary 3rd party verification program covers all aspects of green building from site planning to water and resource efficiency.  Builders can register homes to receive various levels of certification. The Green Makeover Home is expected to be certified  GOLD .

LEED for Homes is a certification program developed by USGBC.  Similar to the GHBT program, LEED for Homes has 3rd party verification and takes into account all areas of green building and sustainability.  We have scored The Green Makeover Home using the LEED criteria and have determined that we could meet LEED for Homes' GOLD level.

The EPA’s Energy Star program is one of the most recognized brands when it comes to appliances.  But they also have a Energy Star For Homes designation which certifies a higher level in energy efficiency. The Green Makeover Home participated in this program. We have received a HERS rating of 50, which indicates that the house will perform 50% better than a home built to today's normal code standards.
