Luxury Custom Home BuilderIndoor Air Quality

There are few things more important than the air we breathe, and too often this topic is neglected when speaking of how we build our homes. Indoor Air Quality affects the health and comfort of our homeowners. Achieving a high-quality indoor environment involves careful choices of design, layout, and materials

Green Building encourages use of products and materials that reduce or eliminate these sources of indoor pollution. These include a wide range of products such as low-VOC paint, solvent-free adhesives, and water-based wood finishes that not only eliminate many of the suspected and known carcinogens, but often perform better than traditional products.

The quality of indoor air depends on well-designed ventilation and humidity control, which goes hand in hand with energy conservation and longevity of the buildings.

Low VOC Products

An essential piece of a healthy Green Building is the quality of its indoor air.

Understanding VOC emissions and how to control them can lead to a healthier environment.

VOCs are carbon-containing substances that easily become vapors or gas.

Many common building materials contribute to VOC concentrations in the air, including carpets, paints, wall panels, adhesives, and furniture. Choosing products that have been evaluated for VOC emissions is a simple way for facility managers to improve indoor air quality.
