Green remodeling encompasses the areas of energy efficiency, healthy indoor air quality, durability and resource efficiency.
Older homes in our Greater Palm Springs Desert area were built when energy was significantly less expensive and have few of the features of new green construction. So a remodel project, which typically involves an older home, provides opportunity to introduce green remodeling concepts.
When they were active remodelers the philosophy of the owner of Cabinets of the Desert was to recognize and concentrate upon those elements of green remodeling that directly benefit the health, comfort and pocketbook of the Client. Any indirect benefit to the environment is a bonus.
Cabinets of the Desert applies green remodeling methods and materials as follows:
1) energy related, for which there is a tangible return in savings and comfort
2) indoor air quality related, for which there is a beneficial return in health
3) durability of materials, for which there is an economic return
