Build environment friendly because it’s the right thing to do.
At Taggart Construction, we strive to tread lightly on the earth. Where you build your new home or addition can impact old tree growth or wildlife habitat. Proper site location will also maximize solar options and take advantage of available views. Our job as your design/build team is to help you make informed decisions when selecting land and siting your project.
While designing buildings that reflect your lifestyle, are energy efficient and built to last, we select materials that have a low “embodied energy;” the energy used to create and transport products.
- Using products manufactured in the state of Maine, reduces fuel consumption
- FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified, selectively harvested wood ensures forests are sustainably managed
- Engineered lumber makes better use of the whole log
- Using recycled content and selected materials generates the most efficient yield
Taggart Construction building materials include environment friendly alternatives. Formaldehyde-free products, low-VOC paints and Dense-Pac cellulose insulation made from recycled newspaper are examples of advanced products that will improve your home and benefit the environment. A Taggart home has the right stuff.
