Green Building


Building green in today’s home building industry is all about incorporating environmental considerations and resource efficiency in key steps of the building process and land development process, minimizing the overall environmental impact.

There are many benefits for homeowners who want to go green in their new home or remodeling project, including improved health, durability and efficiency of the home, as well as reduced heating, cooling and utility costs.

More benefits include qualifying for green building rebates and mortgages and an increased home value through green certification that stays with the home.

Net Zero Construction is dedicated to building homes that are GREEN.  Below you see categories that can help educate you in the technologies and materials that go into our homes to make them green and long lasting.

Nudura ICF
All of our homes exterior walls are built using Nudura Insulated Concrete Forms.  These forms are made from foam and stay in place once they are filled with concrete to provide a super-insulated structure. Read more about Nudura here.
