“When we were deliberating whether to buy an intriguing 15-year-old home in Darnestown, we met with a representative from Hopkins and Porter to discuss the possibilities of remodeling it to fit our family's needs. We were immediately attracted to what we recognized as an important optimistic realism from H&P's Ken Hurdle. He was remarkable at listening, hearing and being careful to understand exactly what we were trying to achieve. He was never intimidated by the craziness of our ambitions but, at the same time, he was never hesitant to give us his honest professional outlook as to what those crazy dreams would factually entail. Over the following months, we learned we could completely trust the H&P team either to figure out ways to transform our visions into reality or to help us adjust our expectations into financial feasibility. Unexpected challenges that arose along the way - as happen in every remodeling project - hardly seemed to phase our H&P team. They almost welcomed them as interesting challenges and launched in to find creative solutions. We feel that the end product of our extended remodel job is a resounding success. The unfinished basement has been transformed into a combination of recreation rooms, bathrooms, sound-insulated bedroom, and a mahogany office of the most meticulous detailed craftsmanship. The new addition of a connected three-car garage with guest apartment was so masterfully built and with such careful matching of rock, paint, trim, etc. that it's nearly impossible to tell that it's not part of the original home. The H&P team stopped at nothing to make sure every detail of our project was completed to our full satisfaction. They demonstrated the highest standards of professional integrity and became lifelong friends to our family in the process. We couldn't give Hopkins and Porter any higher recommendation. Contact us and we'll gladly tell you more!”

Why You Should Consider Green Home Building

Why You Should Consider Green Home Building

Building a green home has noticeable benefits in regard to economic and social reasons. However, you should also understand the environmental benefits that come from green home building as you may find it as an excellent investment for the future of the world you live in. It is possible to make an outstanding contribution with green home building as you can make the world a safer place. 

Green Home Building Helps Moderate the Temperature 

Asphalt and concrete are guilty of major heat retention, which is the reason why many urban areas experience excessive heat at times. Fortunately, you can be the reason this excess in heat is combated through the use of green home building with a superb building design and planting trees on your land. 

Green Home Building Helps Preserve Natural Resources

Natural resources are not going to last forever with continuous and increased use, so preserving them is a worthwhile cause. It is pretty incredible that this can be done through green home building, which also provides you with a multitude of financial and health-related benefits. Utilization of deconstructed materials from previous buildings is a much better option than using brand new materials. 

Green Home Building Helps Manage Stormwater 

Rain is inevitable, and while there are storm drains to direct the water, this is not a necessary solution. It is possible to harvest the stormwater on your property by redirecting it into rain barrels for later use. Another option is to consider a green roof as this will allow stormwater to be absorbed by plants. Green home building is a good way to control the flow of water when the next storm strikes.
