What is green remodeling?

“I want the end result to be everything the homeowner dreamed of. Along the way, we’re going to do our best to have as little amount of waste as possible, use as little amount of energy as possible, and we’re going to use materials that are made as locally as we possibly can get.” – Andy Lindus, Lindus Construction

It’s never too early to start thinking about spring home improvement projects. Whether it’s smaller do-it-yourself jobs or large remodels that require a contractor, we all have changes we’d like to make around the home. 

Included in that discussion is the topic of green remodeling – but what does it mean? Do green remodeling projects consist of strictly green materials or are there ways to approach these jobs that simply require a different method?

Andy Lindus of Lindus Construction in Baldwin, Wis., joins us on the latest episode of the Angie’s List Experts podcast to discuss spring home improvement projects, explain the various green remodeling methods and techniques utilized by today’s contractors, and share how you can make your home more efficient.
