Beantown Home Improvements is GREEN!

Thinking 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.
Shingle Recycling

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!

Owens Corning - Shingle Recycling

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.

    I received several quotes for my roof replacement. I chose Beantown Home Improvements because of Derek Straughn’s quick response and follow up. My neighbor had recommended Beantown, and I know how pleased he was with their work.Derek was … More very professional throughout the process. He followed up with the quote and answered all of my questions. He communicated the timeline clearly so I knew what to expect. The crew arrived as scheduled and did a complete and quality replacement in just one day. It was a pleasure to do business with Beantown Home Improvements because they do what they say they are going to do. I feel like I received the highest quality roof replacement at the best price. I highly recommend Beantown Home Improvement for your roof replacement.

    My family had a major renovation project (roof & siding) and I was at a loss as to where to begin. As soon as Beantown came to give us an estimate, I was so impressed with their knowledge and presentation that I knew they were the company … More I would feel comfortable working with on this job. Jim was patient with me as I made all my decisions. In sometimes bitter cold weather, their extremely hard-working crew worked quickly yet precisely to complete the job in the time frame given to us. The lines of communication were always open for me and Beantown addressed all my questions and concerns until the project was completed. And the result is that our 46-year-old home, and outbuildings, have been restored to beauty once again. I highly recommend Beantown Home Improvements for all your construction projects.

    Beantown did an incredible job at my house. We needed to replace all the gutters in my house. They we very responsive and professional. We called and were able to get a quote within a week and my new gutters were installed 2 days after … More we signed the contract. When they were almost done we decided we wanted our garage doors reframed, they were able to add that onto our gutter job and everything was completed within 2 days. We are so happy with the way that everything turned out! We will hire them again in the future and recommend them to our family and friends!

    Incredible company from start to finish! We had our new roof installed with Beantown home improvements last fall. From start to finish this company was an absolute pleasure to work with and with each step gained our trust and a very satisfied … More customer in the end. Our first meeting was at our home with Elias. The appointment was easy to scedule and Elias showed up on time and was very personable and professional. Being this was a major investment in our home he sat with us and explained in detail what exactly would be done and then gave us a very competitive quote. We had gotten other quotes from other companies as well and Beantown roofing was by far the best. The next employee we had contact with was Isabella who was patient and very helpful in providing us answers to questions we had in regards to choosing a roof shingles. I had never taken notice of colors before until this moment and we wanted to make sure we were making the right choice for our home. Once chosen we were given an approximate date for installation however they completed our project ahead of schedule. Derek was our project manager and once again was professional and kept to his timeline. His crew showed up on time and I was beyond impressed with the work ethic of the crew he had with him. They worked hard and diligently all day, kept my home clean and kept us up to date on what was happening. They worked a full day and as promised came back the next day to compete the project, finishing ahead of time again. Since installation we have had several major rain, wind and snow storms and the roof has stood up to the elements great...no issues at all. Even if there was I know Beantown home improvements would have corrected it no problem since that is the type of company they are. They are honest, reliable and fairly priced. We are so happy that we found them. If you are in need of a new roof, as daunting as it may be, I would absolutely recommend that you call them. You won't regret it.
