Environmental Stewardship with Green Building

Crawlspaces 2 Basements is committed to reducing energy consumption and minimizing our environmental impact. We incorporate a wide range of green building practices in every crawlspace conversion project.

Energy Conservation
Columbine ExteriorConverting your crawlspace to a finished basement is the most environmentally friendly way to expand your living space. Crawlspace conversion adds valuable new living space within the existing footprint of your home. This significantly reduces the amount of energy and material required to expand your family’s living space.

Plus, a well-insulated basement is the most energy efficient living space in your home. A modern basement requires significantly less energy to heat and cool, compared to other portions of your home. This makes your new basement a good choice for the environment…and a great investment.

Reduced Landfill Waste
ExcavationCrawlspaces 2 Basements is dedicated to minimizing the amount of construction debris we send to the landfill while converting your crawlspace. The primary method for reducing waste is through the recycling of used building materials. Here are three examples:

  • All broken concrete from demolition is taken to a local recycling facility to be turned into new concrete.
  • We remove all rebar from that broken concrete and recycle it separately.
  • All dirt removed during excavation is donated free throughout the city, for use in other construction projects.

We all know that conscientious recycling requires a little extra time and effort. However, this additional effort enables Crawlspaces 2 Basements to eliminate hundreds of tons of landfill waste every year.

Recycled Building Products
Columbine BathWe strive to use environmentally friendly building products in every project. Recycled or “green” building products significantly reduce the environmental impact of your crawlspace conversion. Plus, we have found that recycled building products often deliver superior results, compared to traditional materials. Here are two examples:

  • Recycled concrete products with fly ash
  • Ecobatt recycled insulation

Here at Crawlspaces 2 Basements, our vision is to one day use 100% recycled products in every crawlspace conversion. We’re not there yet, but we get closer every day.

If energy conservation and environmental stewardship are important to you, crawlspace conversion is a perfect choice to expand your living space. We look forward to speaking with you about the “green” benefits of crawlspace conversion. Call today: 303-598-9988.
