editor’sletter Going Green

Want to make your home greener but not sure how? Our Green Issue aims to make the process easier by identifying eco-friendly practices and connecting you with local resources that can help. Perhaps you are a bit skeptical about the whole green movement. As the trend has grown, “greenwashing”, or misleading green product claims, has become a problem. You can research these claims to verify just how green a product is, but it’s important to understand that using green products in your home is just one aspect of going green.

When it comes to home improvement, going green typically refers to efforts to improve the performance of your home as well as protect natural resources. Projects that help accomplish this goal may include installing low-flow plumbing fixtures and making sure your home is properly sealed and insulated, for example. Going green can also refer to something as simple as donating old cabinetry to be reused rather than throwing it in a landfill. These projects or preferences can be incorporated into your plans to remodel your home and can be valuable renovations in themselves. Sometimes referred to as green building, green home improvement is more about a technique than buying a green product. That is why the decision to include green building practices in your next remodel or project should be made early in the planning process. An energy audit, for example, will help identify problem areas in your home. These problem areas, such as discovering that conditioned air from your home is escaping through poorly sealed exterior walls, are best addressed from the beginning of a project rather than the end. Thanks to recently updated construction codes and continuing education opportunities, many remodelers and contractors are familiar with green home improvement options and finding help is easier than ever. Armed with the ideas and information in our Green Issue, you can approach your next remodel or home improvement project with confidence and will be on your way to energy savings and more in no time.

Expert Q&A

Metro Atlanta House by MTI Baths Offers Hospitality, Design Inspiration To Guests

Q:

Rather than another hotel stay, visiting clients and guests of local manufacturer MTI Baths, www.mtibaths.com, can look forward to staying at MTI’s new guest house, where they can experience the brand’s luxury bath products first hand. Located near MTI’s Sugar Hill, Ga., showroom and production facility, the Southern farmhouse-style residence features a professionally designed interior by Audrey G. Newsome Designs with a kitchen designed in collaboration with Matthew Quinn, of Atlanta’s Design Galleria Kitchen & Bath Studio, www.designgalleria.net, who has also done some product design for MTI. Special attention was given to each bathroom, which includes tubs, sinks, shower bases, enclosures and bath furniture by MTI, faucets and fixtures by Grohe and Cifial, toilets by Duravit and tile by Artistic Tile. To see more photos of the house, visit www.atlantahomeimprovement.com/blog.

Is there an advantage to using brick for a patio? Brick pavers make a flexible and durable patio. Brick is available in many colors and styles. If you have a brick home, you can choose a color that complements it. It’s also very stain resistant and makes a smooth walking surface. Brick can be laid with mortar on a concrete pad or compacted gravel base with individual sand-swept joints. Brick paver patios are a good choice to use on fill dirt because, unlike concrete, which can crack as your patio settles over time,

brick pavers can flex, and you won’t notice the crack. —Eric King, ASLA, owner, King Landscaping, www. erickinglandscaping. com

Homeowners Urged To Check for Radon

Local Contractors Win Awards at National Deck Competition Several Atlanta area contractors took home awards at the 2012 National Deck Competition hosted by the National Deck and Railing Association (NADRA). MOSAIC Group [Architects and Remodelers], www.mosaicgroupatlanta.com, won first and third places for Best Covered Deck. Decksouth, www.decksouth. com, won first place for Best Alternative Deck under 500 sq. ft. and third place for Best Wood Deck under 500 sq. ft. Tailor Decks, www.tailordecks.com, won first place for Best Wood Deck under 500 sq. ft., second place for Best Covered Deck and tied for third place for Best Illumination. Decks and More, www. decksandmore.biz, won second place for Best Wood Deck under 500 sq. ft. The entries were judged on: creativity, use of space and functionality, use of materials and overall visual appeal. The competition was open to NADRA builder members from across the U.S. and Canada. Visit www.nadra.org for more information.

MasterWorks Atlanta Partners with Technology Company To Create Building Software Contractors, remodelers, designers and other building industry professionals are increasingly using computerized design tools for project plans and renderings. After measurements of the space are taken, the numbers are put into a computer program to generate a digital version of the room identifying important features such as electrical and water hookups. However, once the project is over, these measurements are usually discarded. But what if those plans could be saved to a central database for future use by property owners, real estate agents, insurance companies, banks, investors and more? MasterWorks Atlanta, www.masterworksatlanta.com, a local remodeler, is partnering with Innodraw, an Israeli technology company, to create such a tool. The online database of these measurements and plans can be accessed in the future when it comes time to sell, remodel or assess the home or building. While the scope of the project is ambitious, Bernie Smith, owner of MasterWorks, believes the software he is developing will revolutionize the building industry. “Google maps the world, but no one saves the maps and measurements of buildings,” he says. 14

Radon is an odorless, colorless, radioactive gas that can seep into homes through cracks in the foundation, walls, crawl spaces and wells. It is the leading cause of lung cancer in the U.S. for nonsmokers, resulting in more than 20,000 cases per year, according to a press release from HomeSeal Atlanta, a local radon mitigation company. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has designated January as National Radon Action Month, and HomeSeal Atlanta is offering free test kits so that area homeowners can find out if their homes put them at risk. HomeSeal Atlanta was recently recognized as the No. 2 mitigation company in the National Radon Defense Network. For more information, call (770) 888-3321 or visit www. atlantaradonmitigation.com.

When replacing floors, avoid wall-to-wall carpet to keep indoor air cleaner and for a more durable finish. Area rugs that can be removed and cleaned are a better option.

If carpet is preferred, look for wool or a synthetic that is GreenGuard-certified.

❍ Choose a new flooring product that contains primarily renewable and sustainable materials and avoid buying products made in countries with low environmental standards.

Buy flooring from a local manufacturer to reduce the emissions and costs associated with shipping and transportation.

Make sure any glues or chemical finishes are low-emissions and low-VOC.

Select a flooring product that is long-lasting, easily repaired or able to be refinished.

Find out if the flooring is easy to clean and if non-toxic cleansers can be used on it.

Eco-friendly flooring products to consider include:

This is the main idea behind the 2012 HGTV Green Home, which was constructed in Atlanta’s Serenbe community last year as part of the national television network’s fifth green home giveaway. Valued at nearly $800,000, the new three-story home is approximately 2,300 square feet and includes three bedrooms, two-and-a-half baths, an unfinished basement, several outdoor living spaces and a detached garage and carport. It’s a modern farmhouse that combines the charm of historical architecture with the latest green building techniques, redefining what it means to go green. 24

Green building Recently named 2012 EarthCraft House Certified Project of the Year, the green home meets rigorous green building standards aimed at boosting energy efficiency, water conservation and more. A half-slab/half-basement foundation was chosen to reduce dirt removal and the need for additional dirt on the job site. Waste materials were minimized, repurposed or recycled. Walls were built thick and insulated well. A sheet metal roof was specified to reflect light and radiant heat, providing a cooling effect in the summer. In fact, only one air-conditioning unit is needed for heating and cooling the entire home. That’s also partly because of the natural ventilation offered by a cupola and thoughtfully designed indoor-outdoor living spaces. Taking advantage of the www.atlantahomeimprovement.com

W ter Smart How to create a water-conserving landscape by Margaret Price

Homeowners spend roughly $45 billion on lawn and landscape services annually. But beyond the financial effects, it’s important to consider the environmental costs of using synthetic fertilizers, pesticides and large amounts of water when landscaping. To reduce environmental impacts and enjoy less maintenance, consider the benefits of xeriscaping, a landscaping method that promotes water conservation. With xeriscaping you can reduce outdoor water consumption by as much as 50% while still supporting a beautiful landscape.

Plan accordingly First, proper planning and design is essential. Consider site factors such as differences in soil, changes in sunlight levels and water-use zones. “Design with low-water-use plants, as there are lots of plants to choose from,” says Rick Kaldrovics, president of Outside Landscape Group, www.outsidelandscapegroup.com. “Also, divide your garden or property into waterneed or water-use zones. Areas of the yard can be installed with low, medium and high water needs. Therefore, you can be more precise and efficient with water usage.” 28

Get grounded Even the most seemingly uniform landscape can have a variety of different soil types, so proper soil analysis is essential to creating a water-smart landscape. Examine the soil, paying attention to factors such as structure, texture, topography and slope of the site. “To determine chemical characteristics of the soil, perform a soil test in the turf and planting beds by taking samples of your soil to your local extension agent,” says Jelani Linder, president of J. Linder Design and Consultants, www. jlinderdesignandconsultant.com. The results will indicate whether your soil needs lime and what type of fertilizer best fits your needs.

Choose wisely With the number of different plant types in the marketplace, selecting the appropriate ones for your landscape can be overwhelming. Above all, consider adaptability of the plant to the site, focusing on factors such as sun exposure, light intensity, typical wind conditions, average seasonal temperatures and drainage patterns. Dave Gatti, CEO of P.O.P.S. Landscaping, www.popslandscaping.com, recommends choosing native plants. “These plants have been grown to adjust to a variety of areas and are more likely to thrive with minimal care,” he says. They also require less water, fertilizer and pesticides than non-natives and are more energy efficient because they limit the amount of water and fossil fuels used per plant, from nursery to shipping to planting to continued care.

Turf wars Turfgrass can be one of the most versatile and functional plant elements in the landscape, but it’s important to strike a balance if your goal is water conservation. “We try to minimize the amount of turfgrass we install for a variety of reasons,” says Thomas Boyce, owner of Innovative Outdoors, www.innovativeoutdoorsllc.com. “Many turfgrasses are exotic, www.atlantahomeimprovement.com

Landscape to hardscape Installing hardscapes is one way to conserve water and add functionality to your yard. Hardscaping, a growing trend in landscaping, refers to any element installed in the outdoors that does not have a life cycle or a roof. Patios, steps, walls and paths are all common hardscape elements that can be found in a residential property. When plants, trees and grass are replaced with brick, concrete and other hard surfaces, watering is no longer required in that area. Because hardscapes are often made with impervious materials—meaning water does

paving materials, or hardscape materials that allow water to soak through them, lessen or eliminate runoff by allowing rainwater to slowly seep in at the point of contact rather than collecting over a hard surface,” says Thomas Boyce, owner of Innovative Outdoors, www. innovativeoutdoorsllc.com. Runoff from hardscapes also can be directed back into beds or lawn areas to prevent erosion.

Water wise A carefully designed irrigation system takes into account the water needs of plants, resulting in efficient irrigation and less water waste. “Water when plants need water, not on a set schedule,” says King. “Automatic irrigation systems can be a disadvantage in this instance because they create a water-dependent yard. Review your irrigation system annually to check for leaks, adjust coverage and correct as needed.”

Natural mulches Mulches can benefit the landscape in several ways, such as retaining water, preventing weeds that compete for moisture, preventing erosion and moderating soil temperature. But make sure to follow nature’s lead. “The most basic and fruitful approach to water conservation is summarized by saying ‘If it falls in the yard, it stays in the yard,’” says King. “That applies to things like leaf litter from fallen leaves. First, the term ‘litter’ implies it’s a nuisance rather than the asset it is. But more importantly, natural leaf fall provides organic matter, free mulch and looks great in natural woodland areas. More people are mowing leaves and

Eco-friendly landscaping trends In an effort to conserve time, money and natural resources, homeowners increasingly are turning to eco-friendly landscaping methods. Here, our experts weigh in on some of the current trends: • “Constructing or purchasing rain barrels is a simple feature that homeowners can add in order to create a water-smart landscape. Relatively inexpensive and found at most garden centers, these barrels easily hook up to gutter systems and feature garden hose nozzles at their bases. This makes it easier to re-use rainwater to irrigate plants near the house.”—Thomas Boyce, Innovative Outdoors • “More homeowners and landscapers are attempting to power down, using push mowers and cutting back on power tools to save with electricity.”—Dave A. Gatti, P.O.P.S. Landscaping • “Creating and planting home vegetable gardens and neighborhood community gardens are becoming very popular. Using organic materials from local farms, manure, compost and using solar energy in the garden is quite popular as well.” —Neil Kain, Kain Landscape spreading them in beds, reducing the amount of pine straw that has to be trucked in from other states.”

missing the mark. “A well-designed landscape should get better with age, requiring less maintenance, irrigation and mulch,” says King. “Mow up leaves and spread back in beds, redirect rainfall back into the yard, use easy-care plants that require few chemicals and maintenance and reduce resource-dependent lawn areas.” However, like any well-manicured landscape, cultivating a green landscape does require a certain amount of dedication. “Many people start out and realize the amount of work involved and stop,” says Neil Kain, owner of Kain Landscape, www.kainlandscape.com. “It doesn’t have to be that hard. If you do learn about the proper practices of ecofriendly landscaping and gardening, it will come to you. A lot of it is also common sense. Our society has become ruthlessly dependant on bagged goods from the big box stores and local nurseries and hardware stores over the last half century. Think back to just a mere 60-70 years ago. Many people grew their own food for everyday survival. Grocery stores were few and far between. That was real organic gardening.” Editorial Resources begin on page 74. www.atlantahomeimprovement.com

0113_028-032_water-landscape.indd 31

• “In addition to using more green products, we are seeing homeowners making a conscious effort to support their local businesses by purchasing locally made products.”—Matt Dombrowski, Greenstone Recycled Stone Products • “Although, there is a lot of interest in eco-friendly landscape requests from homeowners, I see the biggest trends on the construction side of things. We as contractors have had a very challenging time with recent historic droughts and economic downturns that have dictated change. We have had to find ways to reduce our cost on fuels. We have had to become more efficient with debris removal with the rising cost of waste management, where recycling debris is a big growing trend.” —Rick Kaldrovics, Outside Landscape Group ATLANTA HOME IMPROVEMENT JANUARY 2013

cahptalk Water Hammer A common plumbing issue explained

Knock, knock. No, it’s not opportunity, it’s the water pipes in the house you just heard… and that’s no joke! We’ve all heard it: that loud, banging hammer sound in the plumbing lines when the water is turned on or during a washing machine or dishwasher cycle. It’s a valve

that one large centrally located arrestor in the basement or attic can control water hammer throughout the system. Actually, centrally located arrestors have little effect. Water arrestors are like shock absorbers on a car. You need a shock absorber for each wheel. This same concept applies to your plumbing system. Each valve needs a water arrestor to prevent water hammer and possible valve failure. An ASHI-certified home inspector usually is the first to find out if a house is missing water arrestors. If they are missing, you

Water hammer is something homeowners have learned to live with as a necessary evil of home owning. However, there is an effective fix for the problem, and no one needs to live with those annoying banging sounds. Stan A.

Expert Q&A

House by MTI Baths Offers Hospitality, Design Inspiration To Guests

Q:

Rather than another hotel stay, visiting clients and guests of local manufacturer MTI Baths can look forward to staying at MTI’s new guest house, where they can experience the brand’s luxury bath products first hand. Located near MTI’s Sugar Hill, Ga., showroom and production facility, the Southern farmhouse-style residence features a professionally designed interior by Audrey G. Newsome Designs with a kitchen designed in collaboration with Matthew Quinn, of Atlanta’s Design Galleria Kitchen & Bath Studio, www.designgalleria.net, who has also done some product design for MTI. Special attention was given to each bathroom, which includes tubs, sinks, shower bases, enclosures and bath furniture by MTI, faucets and fixtures by Grohe and Cifial, toilets by Duravit and tile by Artistic Tile. For more information about MTI, visit www.mtibaths.com.

Is there an advantage to using brick for a patio? Brick pavers make a flexible and durable

patio. Brick is available in many colors and styles.

If you have a brick home, you can choose a color

that complements it. It’s also very stain resistant and makes a smooth

walking surface. Brick

can be laid with mortar on a concrete pad or

compacted gravel base with individual sand-

swept joints. Brick paver patios are a good choice

to use on fill dirt because unlike concrete, which

can crack as your patio settles over time, brick

Landscaping, 1023 Shallowford Road, Marietta, GA 30066, (770) 928-5658, www.popslandscaping.com. How to create a water-conserving landscape by Xxxxxxx Xxxxxxxxxx

Homeowners spend roughly $45 billion on lawn and landscape services annually. But beyond the financial effects, it’s important to consider the environmental costs of using synthetic fertilizers, pesticides and large amounts of water

when landscaping. To reduce environmental impacts and enjoy less maintenance, consider the benefits of xeriscaping, a

landscaping method that promotes water conservation. With xeriscaping you can reduce outdoor water consumption by as much as 50% while still supporting a beautiful landscape.

Plan accordingly

First, proper planning and design is essential. Consider site factors such as differences in soil, changes in sunlight levels

and water-use zones. “Design with low water-use plants, as there are lots of plants to choose from,” says Rick Kaldrovics,

president of Outside Landscape Group, www.outsidelandscapegroup.com. “Also, divide your garden or property into waterneed or water-use zones. Areas of the yard can be installed with low, medium and high water needs. Therefore, you can be more precise and efficient with water usage.”
