Green Building

At Nelson Lumber, we work to take care of the environment as well as our customers. It helps that we use a renewable resource: wood. Wood is a low-carbon building material that requires less energy to manufacture than other materials. Not only that, it's economical and a source of natural beauty.

Of course, green building goes further than that. Waste prevention measures are in place at our factory, where we work in a setting free of any toxic substances. Throughout the building process, all culled materials are sorted and reintroduced into the builder production cycle when feasible. Any leftover material we can't use is offered to the community in an effort to reduce the amount of materials entering the landfills. A recycling program in both our offices and factory, and our factory uses energy efficient lighting.

Because we use pre-manufactured components, our jobsites are clean and efficient. There is minimal site waste to clear up, which results in less material going to landfills.

Waste prevention can start before we even start building. Our designers are skilled at incorporating green concepts into the design of homes. You can go green in countless places around your home, including your walls, insulation, window treatments, sidings, and foundations. You can even consider alternative ways to power your home, via solar panels and other applications.
