What is Green?

What is Green?


It's not just for hippies.

When we change an existing building, particularly if you live in period property, (like all those Victorian and Edwardian homes in London) we change the balance of the building elements and their relationship with heat, air and moisture.

This is why it is important to think carefully about the impact modernising a building has on its performance, building health and occupant's health. 

When we talk about making a home green, we mean that we consider all parts of the home, how they work together and how to make them work in harmony to produce a living environment that is comfortable to be in, that is good for your health/well-being and that will work sustainably for a long time.

Put simply, when we say Green, we mean that we do it better.

Our Natural Approach


Our Natural Approach


Many modern building products are made from petrochemical based substances that can be very efficient in one sense, but are also frequently full of chemicals that then “off gas” for a long time after they have been installed. This leads to a build -up of harmful substances in the air in your home.

Many supposedly efficient insulation products are “closed cell”, this means they do not allow moisture to pass through them. This can mean that the wrong materials in the wrong place, installed in the wrong way can create problems that take a long time to detect, like moisture build up in walls causing condensation, leading to mould growth. This can be taking place out of site behind your walls, in your ceilings and roof and under your floors. This can harm your health and your building. It's very important to install the correct materials in the correct way so they work in harmony with your building. The older your building this is, the more important this is. 

This is why we use materials that allow correct moisture transfer to take place in your home, keeping you warm, safe and healthy.

 

So why do we use natural materials wherever possible?

Because they work better

They make you feel better

They make your home better

They make the world better

But mostly…

They make your life better.
