AUGUSTA, GA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/04/13 -- According to Trinity Custom Homes, a southeastern homebuilder, the "green movement" is one that has pervaded virtually every aspect of life and has prompted changes in nearly every industry. In particular the company notes that eco-friendly trends have become increasingly noticeable in the properties people work or live in. Although many homes and office spaces offer energy-efficient utilities and design, a recent article from Green Building Elements reveals that many are starting to look at how green these homes actually are, from construction to eventual occupancy.

In the article, author Andrew Gough states, "What we really need to consider when designing and constructing green buildings is not only the actual design itself but also where we source the raw materials, and also consider the people we hire and machinery used to create it, if we truly want to refer to it as a 'green building'." He notes that while eco-friendly practices are becoming more prevalent throughout modern homes, the actual equipment that is used in construction may pose a threat to the environment, creating an inconsistency in the green building process. The article reveals, "Regardless of the increased pace toward environmentally-sound residential and commercial construction, large parts of the old-style building infrastructure will still dominate the landscape for the next 100 years at least."

While Gough's critique is a valid argument for many, custom homebuilders, such as Trinity Custom Homes, are already engaging in eco-friendly practices to offer greater protection for the environment throughout every step of the construction process. In response to the article, Trinity Custom Homes comments in a recent press statement, "Trinity Custom Homes has focused since the beginning on using numerous green building techniques on their new homes. We believe that these items are important to both our customers and for the long term benefits to the environment. We try to use better materials and systems, such as low 'E' windows and 2'x'6 walls with thicker insulation, whenever possible to give long term environmental benefits."

The home construction provider adds that while it may take some time before equipment designers and manufacturers begin to evolve their tools, it is still possible to make a positive impact when constructing a home today. Trinity Custom Homes encourages all prospective homeowners to always inquire and request green building methods from contractors, as the greater the consumer demand, the quicker a positive eco-friendly change will come about.
