Green Living





Green Living is here today and definitely here to stay.  With TLC Construction you can determine your shade of green whether it is on the light side, possibly wanting to use better insulation and increased efficiency on your heating and cooling equipment, or on the heavier side of green with roof solar panels and recycled materials.  We will help to accommodate your Green needs and find products that fit your goals and budget, while also following the International Energy Conservation Code.  TLC Construction encourages environmental awareness in all facets of building, from business practices and

landscaping, to recycled materials and product awareness.
