Going Green with a Sunroom

Filed under: Tips — Sunrooms by Brady @ 6:00 pm

Our friends at Your Designs LLC, an authorized Brady-Built reseller in Michigan, asked us a question about sustainability and eco-friendly materials in our sunrooms. We understand how important it is to today’s families. You’ll be happy to know that Brady-Built Sunrooms are not just beautiful, but help maintain nature’s beauty so we can enjoy it with our children and grandchildren for generations to come.

The windows (Pella) that we use are energy star rated.  The glass from Guardian exceeds energy star specifications, but the NFRC does not certify window components, so technically we cannot say that our glass is energy star rated (that’s why Guardians web site is so vague).  The wood is from a sustainable source.  The aluminum is mostly recycled content.  All factory scrap glass and aluminum is recycled. Wood scraps are given away to local residents for use as fuel for home heaters.  The sawdust is given to a local farmer for use as bedding for livestock.
