Save The Date: May 17 Hard Hat Tour at Creekside Estates South

May 13, 2012

Green Home IllustrationThe date is fast approaching for the Hard Hat Tour taking place on Thursday, May 17 at Creekside Estates South in Lockport.

Don’t miss out on this fun and informational tour where you can see how energy efficient homes are built. Refreshments will be served as guests learn about the Creekside Estates South community and its new homes built by Beechen & Dill Homes.

Green building is the dominant trend among home builders. From energy efficiency and indoor air quality to conserving natural resources, the Green building phenomenon is not merely a fad, but the direction that the housing industry is moving in with vigor.

Green-certified homes give homeowners not only a healthier living environment, but also ease the burden on their pocketbook by slashing home energy bills. Main reasons for the rise of Green homes according to the McGraw-Hill Construction SmartMarket Report: New and Remodeled Green Homes: Transforming the Residential Market include:

• More than 80% report that energy efficiency is making today’s homes greener compared to two years ago. Use of energy-efficient features is pervasive in the market—the top practice by nearly all surveyed builders and remodelers, regardless of their level of green building activity.

• Indoor air quality is growing in importance and focus for home builders. 60% of home builders believe that efforts to improve indoor air quality make homes greener than they were two years ago, and 95% of high volume home builders report including features that impact air quality.

• More than half consider durable materials one of the most important features in their homes today. In particular, remodelers emphasize this key aspect of their projects. Durability and better materials are key reasons why green homes and remodeling projects are considered of higher quality.

Energy efficient homes are here to stay and for good reason. So join the SSHBA Sales and Marketing Council (SMC) on Thursday, May 17 at Creekside Estates South in Lockport as Beechen & Dill Homes, Inc. will show guests what exactly goes on behind the walls of new Green homes. The Hard Hat Tour will educate guests on how to use construction techniques as selling tools as well as focusing on energy efficient building techniques.

Come out to the Hard Hat Tour to get an insider’s view of how these high quality homes are built from the ground up. For more info click here.
