advanced building techniques that focus on preserving and creating energy
The first thing most people think of when you hear Net Zero is Solar panels on the roof. But that is just one step of a Net Zero Home. There are other aspects to a Net Zero Home and the most important is insulation and a better building envelope.
Along with triple pane windows, heat recovery ventilating, electric heat pumps and the #1 goal is to be able to disconnect the natural gas line.
Why invest in a net zero home – it just makes sense. Technology is advancing more than ever and with these new additions are some new and improved ways of living your life, without expending extra energy, increasing your carbon footprint, or costing you money you can’t afford to lose. Even the slightest addition designed to preserve energy goes a long way, and you can still live comfortably too.
Having a net zero home built will not only benefit you, it’ll benefit everyone in your community and the world itself. Why settle on older, energy wasting appliances and home features when you can have a sustainable, beautiful home instead?

At Ridgeline Improvements, we start every project by getting to know you and the vision for your home. We find out what your dream outcome is, define your budget and work back to establish the best plan for your project.
Our first in person meeting with you will be in the comfort of your own home. We will discuss your renovation and what you would like to accomplish, we will review the space and scope of work with you and we will take measurements of the space to help us build our estimate.
After our first meeting we will do our research to build you an initial budget that reflects the renovation you are looking for. During the follow up meeting you will be presented with a detailed scope of work, preliminary budget and estimated timeline.
Once you have approved the initial budget for your renovation you will work with us to make the material selections for your renovation. You will be shown the finishes that fit with in your initial budget to help you stay on track.
Once you have made your final material selections we will review to ensure that you are still within your initial budget. If any of the material selections have pushed you over that initial budget price we will discuss and you will be presented with a final construction budget to approve. Once approved we will stick to our agreed upon price, unless you make changes to the scope of work during construction.
As soon as the renovation contract is signed we will begin ordering materials and arranging any engineered drawings or permits that may be required. While we are working hard behind the scenes to get your renovation up and running, you can kick back and relax, knowing you are in good hands.
At this point we are actively in your home working on your renovation. You will be provided with updates and weekly site meetings. As your project nears the end, we will arrange a walk through with you to review your renovation and answer any final questions you may have.
