Tampa homes built "green", Enviromentaly friendly buildings are here

By
Real Estate Agent with Smith & Associates ( www.jeannewolfe.com )

For the first time we have begun to see some builders using "Green" Building techniques in the homes they are building. We were recently approached by one such builder about listing what they referred to as a "Super" home. The technique they were using is what is called Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs). This building technique uses prefab panels made from a thick layer of foam (polystyrene or polyurethane) sandwiched between two layers of Oriented Strand Board. The builders who use this technique claim many benefits including:

-huge insurance discounts.

-protection against all but the worst hurricanes.

-50% more energy efficient (allowing for a smaller A/C unit).

-If steel studs are used, there is no termite issues. And it doesn't use the nonrenewable resource of wood.

-Fire protection.

 It sounds great and I would be happy to represent them when they go on the market. I just wonder is it is as good as it sounds. From what I found it looks pretty good!
