Environment


Helping Make the American Dream – Green!

Main Street Fine Homes President Paul Szkotak learned about protecting the environment from his Dad, who would say, “If something takes five minutes instead of two, but you can protect the environment, it’s worth the extra three minutes.”

Main Street Fine Homes takes steps to save energy, recycle and protect the environment, wherever and whenever possible. We work with Revolution Recovery, based in Delaware, to sort and recycle what can be up to 40 tons of trash generated during remodeling. Plus, whenever possible we:

  • Use drywall with recycled content
  • Install low-water-use toilets
  • Use Energy Star-rated and high-efficiency appliances and heating and air conditioning
  • Add extra insulation
  • Install double-pane, argon-filled, low-e windows
  • Install American-made, formaldehyde-free cabinets
  • Plus, we replace concrete with a more pervious surface such as stones, grass or landscaping, whenever we can to ensure greater water absorption. We also use native and drought-tolerant plants in landscaping, so our homeowners use less water in maintaining their property.
