The buzz-word 'Green' is all around us today, but here at Eby Exteriors it is more than a catchy phrase. We feel it's our responsibility to build homes as eco-friendly as possible.

Green building has become a way of doing business for Eby Exteriors. They are minimizing the construction industry's impact on the environment, and helping homeowners do the same. Owner, Phil Eby comments, "The buzz-word 'Green' is all around us today, but here at Eby Exteriors it is more than a catchy phrase. We feel it's our responsibility to build homes as eco-friendly as possible."
Eby Exteriors starts each home improvement project by recycling. They remove old building products containing such materials as aluminum, vinyl, and copper, and recycle them. This process is environmentally smart and a simple way to not harm the environment, while saving money at the same time. Next, they incorporate green products into each of their remodels and additions in Lancaster, PA.
They use products such as recycled plastic or composite wood decking and trim as well as sustainable building materials like reclaimed lumber whenever possible. Another green product they use for siding jobs in Lancaster, PA is cement board siding. This material has a very long life span so it will not need to be replaced for many years. An additional example of the company's green mentality is the Certainteed roofing and siding products that they use. Certainteed's Energy Star certification means homeowners will spend less on heating and cooling their houses. To read more about the green products Eby Exteriors uses, click here.
Another way Eby Exteriors conserves resources is by installing energy efficiency appliances in all of their homes. They choose Energy Star equipment for heating and cooling systems, water heaters, appliances and light fixtures. This impacts the environment positively as well as the homeowners finances.
Lastly, and most notably, Eby Exteriors sometimes stocks more materials than they can use. Instead of disposing of these items, or even recycling them, they donate any usable materials that they have to the Lancaster Habitat for Humanity. Phil Eby says, "If that's one less window in the landfill, it has made a difference."
