Why Build Green

Lower Bills
Zimmermann Homes uses quality materials that are on the cutting edge of energy efficient technology. By choosing to build green, the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) estimates that you lower overall maintenance costs by a staggering 8-13% per square foot per year.

Help the Environment
Green homes maximize the use of sustainable resources and minimize the impact homes can have on the planet. We strive to use the best products, subcontractors, and suppliers that are as community-conscious as we are.
