From the Ground Up: EF Block™
Green building consultants often recommend EF block. Here’s why:
Let’s begin with the foundation. Why not use the perfect material to start constructing your eco-friendly building? First of all, EF Block™ is a created by using recycled materials. These blocks are ideal in that they exceed all requirements for durability and increase both family safety and sustainability.
EF Block Provides Both Strength and Insulation
By placing EF Block™ sections on top of one another, there is no need to mortar the seams. EF Block can be easily cut and shaped into just about any layout. Steel rods (rebar) are inserted into the cores in a grid-work pattern. The end result is insulation that is unsurpassed. In addition to sustainability, buildings constructed with EF Block™ withstand severe weather conditions, fire, and the invasion of pests!
Solar is Often Part of a Green Building Construction Consultation
Solar power has become significantly improved and very popular in recent decades. The sun is one of the most efficient and effective renewable energy sources offered. After a pay-back period of just several years, the savings from a solar system are outstanding.
Passive Cooling and Heating Greatly Increases Efficiency
Enjoy the sun in the winter and lessen its undesirable effects during the summer! The sun’s location, window locations and provisions for shade will be configured into the blueprints. We map the sun’s positions throughout the changing seasons.
