New Home Certifications

VandeMusser Design is able to assist you with any number of green certifications for your new home. In general, a green home is a type of house that is built in order to conserve “energy or water; improve indoor air quality; use sustainable, recycled or used materials; and produce less waste in the process.” The best way to guarantee that a home is built to these standards is to have it inspected, tested, and certified by a third-party Home Energy Rater (which we are!).

The list can be overwhelming for those new to the process, so we always make sure to explain the overall process and explain the upsides (and challenges) for each certification as well as any financial incentives associated with each one. Listed below are some of the most popular certifications we can assist you with. Please click on each link to learn more about each program:
