Green In Our Homes

Green In Our Homes

At Lexington Luxury Builders, we believe caring for the earth is a responsibility we all share as citizens of the planet.  We take this responsibility seriously, striving with every home we build, to improve the efficiency, reduce the waste and minimize the carbon footprint which is typically created while building conventionally built homes.

Below is a sample of some of the many Green Building features built into Lexington homes.  Please read our full Green Initiatives Program along with our Green Committment for a complete explanation of how we have gone Green at Lexington. For a summary of just some of the Green Building Features we build into our homes, we have provided a brief list below.
