A Green or high performance home is a better built, more durable, energy efficient and healthy home that has lower operating costs. With the growing interest in energy efficiency, municipalities and States are beginning to adopt more stringent building requirements and more and more forward thinking individuals and companies are reaching beyond the current codes to build high performance homes, even net zero homes (homes that require no energy to operate). High performance homes are quickly becoming the new standard for quality construction and will soon become the norm instead of the exception. Learn more about Accent Builders Green Building services.
Building in a coastal environment is different from building inland. Wind speeds are typically higher in coastal areas and require stronger engineered building connections and more closely spaced nailing of building sheathing, siding and roof shingles. Wind driven salt water, corrosion and decay drive material choices and require more maintenance and upkeep. Flood levels, velocities and wave action in coastal areas also make coastal flooding more dangerous than inland flooding. Foundations must also be designed and built to withstand coastal erosion which can undermine the structure. In short, the coastal home must be designed and built to withstand higher loads and more extreme conditions. Learn more about Accent Builders Coastal Construction services.
