As I said, I am looking for recommendations for a general contractor with some green certifications, emphasis, and/or experience in the Baltimore/Washington area. If you can either share your recommendations or offer up suggestions on how to best search for such a company/person, I would greatly appreciate it. This is for single-family home renovations, including potentially roof/baths/kitchen/windows/electric/heating & cooling.
I am aware of the National Association of Home Builders and their online directory of builders with green designations, but I am not sure which designations are the most important and if there are other other sites that are better clearinghouses for this info. (I also am aware of Home Builders Association of Maryland and that they designate some builders as "green" but I am not sure how valuable this designation is.)
I hope to combine this info with past questions about how to pick a general contractor (ie, get quotes from 3 contractors in writing and ask for references) to make the final decision.
