Environmentally Friendly General Contracting

At CP & Sons we take pride in being environmentally conscious and earth friendly. From the initial planning stages of your project, through construction, to the disposal of construction debris we care.

For example, in the initial stages of renovation we recommend clients take steps to repurpose, or recycle old dishes, unused kitchen equipment, and old cabinetry. We encourage clients to find new homes for functional old appliances like fridges and stoves. There are many charities out there waiting for donations to put to good use.

It’s the little things. When planning a project we recommend clients take simple steps to ensure an eco-friendly renovation like low flow toilets in their new bathroom, and faucets with built in aerators to reduce water consumption. Convenient recycle stations built right into the kitchen cabinetry ñ no more running to the garage to store your recyclables. And, of course the big ticket items make the most environmental impact ñ sustainable bamboo flooring, solar lighting and recycled stone chip countertops.

At CP & Sons we find the best way to be environmentally responsible contractors is to work hand in hand with our clients. If your objective is to minimize your carbon footprint you have found the right company. We understand sustainable, affordable materials and supplies benefit all of us ñ and the choices are endless. Throughout your renovation we will help you make earth friendly decisions that work for your family and the environment.

 Eco Renovation Tips
