Whether you it has been your home your entire life, are considering remodeling or are looking for a new place to settle down; assessing your home’s environment can be confusing! There is so much information out there how is anyone able to figure out what is best for their family’s specific needs. Having GreenWorks conduct a comprehensive Environmental Site Consultation is critical to helping you get the answers you need. Especially if you aren’t sure of what you need!
Healthy Homes Make for Healthy Families
Let’s face it, we all want a healthy home and know that a healthy home environment makes for healthy families. There are so many issues in a home that can affect our health, we just can’t get all the facts on our own. In fact, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) says our home’s Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) can be the most polluted air we breathe.
Certified Green Professional and Indoor Airplus Program
The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) administers the Certified Green Building Program and the EPA promotes the Indoor airPLUS Program to help builders, allied professionals, and homeowners get information on improving a home’s IAQ and energy efficiency. GreenWorks is a certified Green Professional and supports the Indoor Airplus program.
The GreenWorks team has a broad array of environmental professionals with experience in a wide variety of environmental services and building science. Our Building Biologists are uniquely qualified to assess and correct unhealthy environments. In fact, we live at the cutting edge of where the home environment collides with the natural environment.
Additional Fees (That May Be Incurred)
Occasionally there are additional fees in completing a comprehensive ESC. Here’s a list of typical charges that one might experience (if at all).
- Sampling for enviro stressors (Cost per Sample / 2 week TAT)
- Investigative time beyond 2hr allotment ($100.00/hr)
- Printed copies of Report (All reports are sent digitally)
- Postage, Tolls, Mileage, etc. (As outlined in proposal T&C)
- Out of Scope reports (ie: Asbestos / Lead Paint / VOC’s / Mold / Hydrology / etc.)
- Rush Charges (For accelerated delivery of report, samples, etc.)
Turn-Around-Time (TAT) & Pricing (Typical)
We typically require fifteen (15) business days (not including weekends and holidays) to complete an Environmental Site Consultation report. But it all depends on the site and the types of sampling that are done. Site Consults for a residential home (2KSF ±) range from $595 (one area) to $895 (Entire home) where larger or commercial sites will receive a custom quote separately. The clock starts typically One (1) business day after we visit the property, depending on sampling.
