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.

    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.

    Beantown and Jim are amazing. I've always been cautioned to find someone you absolutely trust when looking for a contractor. This is the company for you. Jim is extremely responsive and was always willing to explain the process … More and what we were doing. We ended up getting new siding, tearing down our chimneys, and getting new roofing and gutters. Workers were always on time, cleanly, and did great work. We HIGHLY suggest using Beantown.

    Based on a friend's recommendation, we added Beantown Home Improvement to our list of potential roof and gutter replacement providers. We were impressed with Eli's thorough quote, attention to detail and competitive pricing. We … More ultimately hired them, and Eli and Derek were very responsive and professional throughout. They kept us well informed during the whole process, which included prompt rescheduling due to a winter storm. We are apprentice of the professional, hardworking and tidy crew. The roof and gutters look great (and were immediately tested the day after installation with 60 mph winds!). We would not hesitate to recommend Beantown or hire them again.

    We had a great relationship with the Beantown staff and workers. They are all very hard working people and strive for your satisfaction. Our project was a complete home makeover of our 28 year old house, Roof, siding, doors and windows. … More Jim Delprete was very easy to work with and guided us through the process and selection of products. He was very responsive to any questions we had. Our house was transformed over a couple of weeks of work. We would highly recommend Beantown Home Improvement.

    Beantown installed a new roof and gutters for us on our recently purchased home. Throughout the process, Eli was incredibly responsive and professional. We felt as though we could continuously rely on him for honest expertise. We are first-timers … More with this experience and he made us feel at ease. The work was scheduled before our move-in date which was our strong preference. Thank you for getting it done within this time frame! The team was on-time the day of the job and worked efficiently. There were some issues outside of the control of Beantown (some of shingles used were defective from the manufacturer). Eli resolved the problem and the team came back to fix within 2 weeks. The roof is beautiful and we are pleased. As we were prepared for, there were some materials (nails, screws, old roof material) sporadically around the house and driveway after completion. We had to clean it up to ensure our car tires weren't damaged. But this was communicated to us prior to the job as a realistic expectation. I would recommend Beantown to friends and family and would use again in the future.

    Beantown Home Improvements completely transformed our home. After several months of research, quotes, and hesitation we chose to move forward with Beantown Home Improvements. Jim had done some work for us in the past and after seeing his … More company grow some more over the years we knew we could trust his company again. Beantown was upfront with all the details, cost, and timeline. His employees were very professional and courteous. Each day his crews showed up and worked from sun up till sundown. Each day the work site was cleaned up as if no one was there. There was constant communication throughout the entire project. We were blown away by the transformation of our home when the project was complete. Beantown Home Improvements does not disappoint. We will continue to recommend Beantown Home Improvements to everyone.

    We hired Beantown H-I to do a bunch of work at our home in Plymouth. They installed a rubber roof on half of our home, removed a chimney and repaired the hole left by the chimney in the asphalt shingle roof, some exterior siding repair, … More and replaced two exterior doors.All of the crew that worked at our house were polite and professional. The site was always cleaned up at the end of the day / job and both the owner Jim and the roofing "foreman" Eli were great to work with and responsive to any questions or concerns we had.I would definitely recommend Beantown H-I and will gladly hire them for future work on my own home.
