According to stopwaste.org, remodeling "Diverts demolition waste, preserves neighborhood character and conserves resources."
Lau Construction strives to help conserve natural resources and save money at the same time by reusing building materials and using all materials efficiently. Remodeling a kitchen, for example, can be a great time to replace old appliances with new ones that are Energy Star™ rated. Any renovation project offers an oppurtunity to insulate your home with new materials such as foam while walls are already opened up and accessible.
