American consumers maintain a lifestyle that is environmentally unsustainable. We spend more, use more, and waste more than any other country, and with the average size of the U.S. home doubling in the last 50 years, the environmental impact of remodeling has become a vital ecological issue.
What We’re Doing About It
Everybody claims to be “green” these days, but many consumers are unsure of what that means, and often the companies don’t really know themselves! Without a clear agenda and facts and figures to back it up – “going green” is nothing more than a buzzword.
At Granite Transformations, we are dedicated to advancing green practices and making an actual difference in the way people think about green construction, and we have injected this philosophy into every aspect of our business, from our manufacturing process to the materials and methods we use in projects. For instance, one popular method of up-cycling we pioneered is the use of the signature blue glass from recycled Skyy Vodka bottles in tiles and other products. But don’t take our word for it – check out all our industry certifications at the bottom of the page!
- Our manufacturing process is designed to use recycled materials whenever possible.
- Our installation process is demolition free, meaning less waste is produced.
- Granite Transformations countertops use 65% less material than traditional countertops, which reduces energy and resource consumption.
But that doesn’t mean that our products are inferior – on the contrary, our countertop slabs provide superior heat, stain and scratch resistance when compared to natural stone. We’re so confident in the quality of our products that we offer a lifetime limited material warranty!
