Beantown Home Improvements is GREEN!

1. Thinking Green

The opportunities to reduce the environmental and health impacts of our homes span from big decisions, like location, to seemingly small decisions, like paint and light bulbs. The products we use to clean, light, furnish, renovate, and build our homes must be a part of the greening process. Reducing our environmental impacts requires thinking and learning about not just how we use products, but where they came from and where they’re going. Consider factors like:

  • Energy used to make, ship, and use a product;
  • The product’s contents and the sources of its raw materials;
  • Emissions during manufacturing the product and the level and type of toxins in the final product; and
  • The product’s durability (lifespan) and recyclability.

2. Green Partners

It’s extremely important when making any kind of home improvement to consider every facet of the project. From overall cost and time to complete, to the benefits of going green long term and the possible energy rebates you could receive short term. There are smart choices that can be made and at NO additional cost to you, if you know where to look. You just have to partner with the right company and BEANTOWN Home Improvements is ready when you are!

3. Green Options

While other elements such as smart insulation and proper ventilation are the big factors in a green home, you can make a world of difference in the materials you select to both build and finish your home. An obvious choice would be purchasing EnergyStar appliances, but what about:

  • Premium insulated vinyl siding siding that can greatly increase the R-value of your home
  • Duration®Premium Cool Shingles are ENERGY STAR® rated and feature unique lighter colors
  • Simonton Windows with ENERGY STAR glass packages specifically designed for harsh Northern climate zones

4. Shingle Recycling

We recycle our shingles at selected recycling stations throughout New England and recycle all Aluminum drip edge

  • BEANTOWN Home Improvements actually established the recycling program for Owens Corning in Massachusetts and is one of the ONLY companies recognized by Owens Corning as a company that pledges to recycle ALL of our shingles.

In the photo above, at C. Carney Environmental in Raynham, you can see the incoming shingle pile on the left-hand side. It is then cleaned, metal separated, and then ground up to 1/4″ minus for roads, which is the clean pile on the right-hand side. Nothing goes into a landfill!

It is our mission to offer only the highest quality, most energy-efficient products, and services on the market that we, ourselves, use in our homes.  Additionally, we focus on the greening of our business by utilizing technology to reduce print and paper materials, reduce waste by partnering with environmentally conscientious manufacturers, and recycle as much construction debris as possible.  Let’s all do our part and preserve our way of life for our children.

    We had Beantown come to repair an area on the roof near the flashing around the chimney. Upon inspection they found another small area that had some rotting due to water, in most cases you would think a huge headache but not with Beantown. … More They were able to obtain the extra supplies they needed and do this repair all in the same day for an affordable and very fair price!! We also had them install a ridge vent and we couldn’t be more happy. Beantown offers reliable, honest and great quality work. I also was overly impressed with how Jim and Eli took the time to share their knowledge and explain everything so you could really understand how everything worked and appreciate the quality of it. Will definitely use Beantown again in the future!! Call them! You won’t be disappointed!!

    Beantown installed a new roof, 2 skylights & gutter guards onto our raised ranch. We couldn’t ask for better results! After receiving 5 estimates from different companies, Beantown was selected due to the products offered, stellar … More reviews, & overall price. The project manager, Derek Straughn, took lots of time explaining all the products & steps that would be taken on the day of installation. He offered loads of necessary information as well as being a good listener to our needs & pocketbook! The total job was impressively completed in one day! The crew stayed focused & professional the entire day! Clean up was impeccable!

    My husband and I hired Beantown Home Improvements to redesign our front porch and extend our roof to cover it and also reshingle our entire roof. We are both extremely happy with the work. Everyone we've talked to says it looks like … More the new work has always been there. Jim was extremely responsive to all of our questions and concerns and both crews (the construction crew and the roofing crew) were extremely professional. The project start date was unfortunately delayed a few times, but it was well worth the wait and, once the work started, easy to see why - the crews care far more about doing the work right than doing it fast, and that's a tradeoff we'd take any day.
