When it comes to building eco-friendly custom homes, the most important features are the materials. Instead of using products that destroy the earth, Graben Construction chooses renewable and green building materials that promote healthy living, protect the environment and lower your home's energy costs. For your windows, they will opt for glass that retains the temperature of your home like Low-E impact glass windows. To insulate your home, they look for great materials like lcynene spray foam insulation. Other options include recycled materials, renewable materials like bamboo and more. You can live in the house of your dreams while being nice to the earth.
Graben Construction is the most highly experienced contractor and builder in the Panama City, Florida area that uses Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF). They include two layers of expanded polystyrene held together by strong polypropylene ties spaced six inches from the center that is strengthened with rebar and concrete for a stable core. These are produced from recycled materials and keep air and moisture out of your home, lowering the potential for allergens and mold. This creates a healthier home environment for your family. They will withstand any weather thrown at you by the Florida climate, including hurricane winds from the Gulf of Mexico up to 200 mph and fire for up to four hours.
The weather in Panama City, Florida and the surrounding areas make heating and cooling systems a must in any house. For your heating and cooling systems, Graben Construction will install high-efficiency systems. One such system is a geothermal system that uses no fossil fuels. Instead, it only needs a modest amount of electricity because it utilizes the sun's energy as it heats the ground, rather than the earth's core heating it from below. You will have a high-functioning system while not having to pay high electric bills. Additionally, you will be saving the earth through not using precious fossil fuels to heat or cool your home. Graben Construction also uses other green focused features on its buildings.
