Eco-Friendly Building & How We Incorporate Sustainability in Our Homes

At Ralco Builders, we understand that building homes isn’t just about creating beautiful spaces, but also about caring for our environment. That’s why we incorporate eco-friendly building materials and sustainability practices into our custom, luxury, and spec homes.

Flooring Options

When it comes to flooring, we offer several eco-friendly options:

  • Bamboo flooring: An excellent alternative to traditional hardwood, bamboo is a fast-growing, renewable material.
  • FSC wood flooring: We use wood from Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified forests, ensuring responsible forest management.
  • Salvaged or reclaimed wood flooring: This includes wood sourced from old buildings or barns, reducing waste.
  • Recycled ceramic or porcelain tile: These tiles are made from recycled materials, offering an eco-friendly option without compromising on style.
  • Linoleum flooring: Made from natural materials, linoleum is biodegradable and recyclable.
  • Cork flooring: Made from the bark of cork oak trees, this flooring option is sustainable and renewable.


We’re committed to reducing our environmental impact, and so we aim for LEED certification in our buildings and use green building materials.

Resilient Flooring and Carpet

For areas that require resilient flooring or carpet, we offer:

  • Natural or recycled carpeting: Made from natural fibers or recycled materials, these carpets are sustainable and eco-friendly.
  • Recycled rubber flooring: Durable and easy to maintain, this flooring is made from recycled tires.

Paint, Stains, and Sealers

We use low-VOC and zero-VOC paint, natural paint, milk paint, chalk paint, and non-toxic stains and sealers to reduce air pollution and maintain a healthy indoor environment in your home.

Walls, Ceilings, and Exterior Cladding

For walls, ceilings, and exterior cladding, we utilize recycled content drywall, FSC wood framing, salvaged structural members, recycled glass countertops and tiles, grasscloth wallpaper, exterior cladding, FSC wood siding, and reclaimed wood siding.
