Eco-Friendly Renovation Options

I was compensated to write this post

Ready to Go Green

If you're thinking about doing home improvements on a large scale that is too much for you to handle, you need to get a renovation contractor. Renovationexperts.com can help you to find the right fit for your job. Make your life easier as you fill out the simple form that is provided online. You'll give the details about your project, your budget requirements, and contact information. From there, you can sit back and wait for contractors to contact you. If going green is important, be sure to make that clear before you get started on any remodeling. Going green can make a major difference in your utility bills and makes less of an impact on the environment. Consider your options.

Find Out About Eco-Friendly Alternatives

No matter what needs to be done during your renovation project, there are environmentally-friendly options that will reduce the stamp you make on the environment. If you are installing new flooring, ask your contractor about your alternatives. Cork, natural linoleum, bamboo flooring, recycled hardwood, and eco-friendly carpeting are various options that could work for you. Pay attention to your windows and doors. Replacements could be the answer you need in order to keep the heat and cool air in while you make sure the elements stay out. Green roofing is another consideration you should bear in mind. As you improve your home, you don't have to hurt the environment.

Think About Going Solar

Solar energy is gaining in popularity and may be another improvement you want to think about. While there is an initial investment that is considerable, the returns may well be worth it. You'll see a positive impact on your energy bills and may even be able to sell energy back to the local utility company. The best part about solar energy is you are using a natural resource and you are not sending toxins into the environment. Discuss the possibility of solar energy with your contractor when you are planning your project. You can be pointed in the right direction to find out if this energy source is a practical choice for you.

Cedar Point and Hotel Breakers

I received a 1 night stay and complimentary tickets for the purpose of this review

Hotel Breakers has been FULLY renovated just the year. They just opened on Cedar Point opening day (May 8th) and we had the chance to stay there for the night as well as visit Cedar Park the following day! Such a blast, great fun for a family of all ages. 

Hotel Breakers was stripped right down to the studs over the past few months. It was really cool to see a fully renovated hotel.
